Angry Citizens Demand Change

Recent events have area residents up in arms over Old Doc Farner's refusal to go outside the city limits of neighboring community of Wedlock, Colorado.

It seems Doc Farner who is described by his friends as "just plain crotchety" on one of his "better" days, refuses to leave the city.


The trouble started last week when area rancher Don Eisan's wife was about to deliver their 13th child.  Don sent a ranch hand to fetch the Doctor but Doc Farner refused to go to the Eisan Ranch which is only 2 miles west of town.  

When asked by this reporter why he refused this request Doc Farner said, "I refuse to have any involvement in a child being born outside of Wedlock!"
