Storyline

Mayberry's new mayor, Roy Stoner, is a no nonsense kind of guy and he takes Andy to task for the way he does his job. From the way Andy dresses - he doesn't wear a tie - to the fact that he doesn't carry a gun, Mayor Stoner just doesn't like the way he runs the Sheriff's office. He's not impressed with the fact that Otis seems top treat the jail like a hotel or the fact that they even do a bit of babysitting from time to time. The last straw is when Andy decides to let decides to let Jess Morgan out of jail for a few days to let him take in his crops. The mayor tells Andy that if Morgan doesn't return as promised, it'll cost Andy his job. Written by garykmcd
