Storyline

A man by the name of Norbert E. Thompson checks into the hotel. Everyone soon learns that he is with the Highway Commission, which is planning on constructing a new road through the valley. He is there to determine its route. Steve gets Joe on the idea that there might be some land speculation based on figuring out that new route. As such, Joe, wanting in on the action, decides to try and convince all the residents of the valley to allow him to act on their behalf to get the best deal. That way, Joe will get a commission no matter where the road goes. Joe's idea doesn't quite catch the imagination of most residents. What seems to be a certainty is that the road will go through Steve and Betty Jo's property, which means that they will finally be able to unload the property and move on with their lives. But Betty Jo comes to the realization that that also means their honeymoon cottage will be torn down. Uncle Joe, who is "helping" them with the land deal, may also have something to say ...
