Pack light little water and some cookies, grab that first aid kit the radio we will be able to reach my office in Red Bluff when we get to the main road and up around Casper pound. They headed down the mountain ,they tied ropes together and Linos and Nicos would go in front and tie the rope off where it was steep  ,they would all hold on the rope and then do it again. That was a good Idea Nicos said Bob with the rope Nicos said, that's how we learned to work as a teem at our summer camp. Look at all those dead gophers and ants, Don't tough them  just get around them Matthew was carrying the cooler with the glass tub in it, and  Nephi had Ralph tied  by a rope on his right arm with  hand cuff attached on his belt and to the rope on his arm keep him from lifting that arm any higher then the rope they used to hold on to to get down the trail.

Ted got Nicos and Halina over to the Hotel where the folks of Red Bluff had set up a place to shower and get a bite to eat. beamer right behind them. Every one else got checked out  by old dock Fredrick, who by the way is also our vet on the weekends and emergencies. In fact he gave rusty a tetanus shot, He had a pretty bad gash on his rear leg from that critter he was fighting with. He loved old rusty In fact his dog  Cappie  is one of rusty puppy's well Grown up puppy.
  They all ate and seen Ted and Halina and nicos off , Linos just moped around like he had lost his best friend.
 Next morning they all met at the sheriff office and  wrote down what they had seen and heard Bob told Mike and Dianne and the Twins they could use the car out back to get home and they could bring it back latter. Charley went down to the used car lot in town and worked out a deal for a van.   so Charley and Jim and bobby were ready to go home Jim ask Loins to come and stay with them Just for a while and he would drive him up to see his dad in Seattle and if his Dad was better he would bring them back here,. Linos said I don't want to be a bother .Bobby said you won't I will take you fishing and their are plenty chores to do, and then whispered Halina just lives a few towns away. I will work and stay in your barn, Well we will see about that, Bobby's mother Sara loves kids and can she cook apple pie, Matthew and Nephi got on the phone and called a government friend that they could trust, his name was Torry. He told Matthew he would drive down and get him and Nephi and Clark that what happened down their was just the tip of the ice berg, They also told him that they had a glass cylinder  from the lab. Tom had locked up Ralph in the jail house and was standing guard, a sleep on Bob favorite chair feet on the table and a twelve gage double barreled scatter gun, Rusty was right next to him, wide alert, They called rusty their 4 legged deputy. would put a hat and badge on him during the towns parade during rodeo days in July. Bob was out at his place  to get a little shut eye before reliving tom and the jail, when woke up to a loud knock, He grabbed his 45 and open the door all of a sudden a light shown bright in to his eyes Drop your weapon said the voice This is the us military .Their must have been 4 jeeps and a truck with ma be 12 fully armed marines, what do you want ,Drop your weapon No I'm the sheriff, then he heard a sound he was familiar with being an x Marine himself, it  was the sound of an M 16 slamming a round in to the chamber,. All right he laid the gun down . two marines grabbed him and loaded him in to the truck. Where is Ralph Hamilton ,Who Don't mess with me ! The man you brought down from the mountains. He is at the  Jail They drove to the jail, Rusty jumped up and started barking Tom flew to his feet and glared out the window, could not believe his eyes , Open the door commanded the Captain. Bob Yelled Barricade your self in, Don't give him the prisoner, one of the marines smashed him in the gut with his rifle barrel and he bent over I will kill your sheriff right now grabbing the sheriff and pointing a fire arm at his head ,then we will blow up this town , We mean business. The sheriff yelled let the prisoner go  so tom got Ralph out and un hand cuffed him  Ralph walk out the door Put him in my jeep Now where is that glass cylinder? What Cylinder said Bob as a marine smacked him in the head with his gun barrel I will kill him ,where is the cylinder  It,' in the back storage room  Two marines burst by him and into the storage room they came out with the cooler a Load up and the Marines left. Tom rushed over to bob yelling get the doctor, Fredrick was coming down the street get him to the hospital hurry for bob was bleeding pretty bad from the gash on the right side of his head. As dock was fixing his wounds, Nephi Charley and Clark came in the the room. Bob said they got Ralph Was it a captain  real big gye? Yes they must of have wanted him and that cylinder, Matthew said  I only talked to Torry about Ralph and the cylinder. They have most likely have had our lines bugged for a long time I remember their were new lines put in by the phone company  last spring We never thought any thing about it. they said it was just an up grade of service,  they did run new lines past Casper pound. Now what? We wait for Torry to get here he has a high official  that he trust with his life Senator Patrick. Ok we will wait. Later  in the afternoon I got a call from the airport and they said a military helicopter was landing it must be my friends, Bob grab the truck and we went down to see, Yes sir it was Torry  Come on and we headed back to the hotel and went in to the dinning room Marge had a private room in the back. We order lunch and started to tell Torry all the things that were happening. Lets take a fly over and look at that road and slide ma be I can get a military road crew to open it up. Ok so we headed back to the airport, The chopper had been refueled and was set to go. as they flew over the slide Torry could see the huge gophers and ants He flew real close to them. and turned to Matthew . This is where they developed these but they now have them in the war zone .Just no way to get close enough to their operation to learn exactly what they have Pretty scary. No said Nephi  That not scary It was the wolverine and Grizzly that they mixed DNA together a fighting machine  a real killer critter soldier. That's what Ralph was doing and they also have some thing in that glass case .Did you see in it. No it was sealed and that marine captain got it .That's not good, Ralph must be working with them I think so. Their is the old lab Wow You blew that in to smithereens yea and the other lab too.
