Backyard Oil - First review says show cool, original, educational

With some questions and a sigoggling tidbit about his great guard dog, Jethro

By Jackson Brower

The show was pretty cool, original and educational, but kind of dragged at the end.

It looks like the opening was shot down in Chance, and that creek with the truck splashing looks like the one between Chance and Melson Ridge, right?

I like Travis Coomer and Jimmy Reliford.

Did Travis have anything to do with Coomer's Cafe? I have definitely seen him around the Square.

Did Jimmy used to work in your press room?

The only wildcatters I knew of were some boys from (), who used to rip me off every time we left town. Jethro, our lab guard dog, would probably just play fetch with one of them while the other one went through the window. They especially liked chainsaws.

CM's Answer Panel can't give but one question: Practically every man, and a few women, worked in the Waggener-Walker Newspapers pressroom at one time or another - even Mayor Mark Harris got his start in newspapers as a collator - except Jimmy Reliford. He was too busy amassing fortunes, even then. Maybe someone else will come to your aid on the other questions. - EW
