Episode 3

Ole and Gil go to Loretta’s Café downtown for lunch with Board Chairman Bob Alsup and Board Member Eddie Lofgren. Eddie is a rough-spoken man who hints to Gil that maybe they could make some money speculating with coop funds, which would violate coop rules. Later, Gil helps his uncle Arthur with some planting on Arthur’s farm; the uncle explains he was suspicious of business dealings at Northern Star so stuck with his own coop instead of joining a new one. Another day, Gil visits Tom Hasselmeier, editor of the local weekly newspaper, and looks up old clips on the death of Marcus Grover.
