RB-128 Danger! Deer Crossing

Bill, Stumpy, and Gray Wolf are part of a huge team of soldiers, law enforcement officers and rangers. Their job - keep anything, man or animal, out of the blast zone of an atomic bomb test. Despite their best efforts, a family of deer (and two spies) manage to slip in to the test. The deer are exposed to the blast and must be found! But will they and those spies be able to elude capture? Gray Wolf may hold the key to a safe and successful end to this test.
(This show couldn't be more appropriately timed in light of the nuclear reactor disaster in Japan that has followed the devastating earthquake and tsunami that rocked that country last week. Please pray that the efforts of Christians to aid the people in Japan will move them to hear and accept the gospel of Jesus Christ.)

Mules Racing a Truck?

Yes, in a Ranger Bill story that had to be retired, mules were in a race against a truck to see who could haul more stone for a mining company. The story was "Skinner Raises a Storm." Skinner McNeil was the mule driver for the mine. He was very attached to his mules. They critters worked faithfully and hard for Skinner and the mine. The mine owners decided to have the mules destroyed rather than retired after the mine purchased dump trucks to do the mules' work. Skinner went to trial for stealing the mules to protect them. The judge gave McNeil the chance to prove the mules were better haulers than the trucks by pitting the mules against the trucks in a race to see who could move more stone in a day.

Jeremiah Sykes is a rancher and preacher on Elk Mesa. Young Herb Bradshaw, son of powerful rancher Thunder Bradshaw, is starting up his own ranch using electric fences. Jeremiah is misusing the Bible to oppose electric fences. Thunder and Jeremiah may go to war over Herb and his ranch. Bill and our rangers must be strong and on constant alert to deal with this range war!
