"Oh for Heaven's sake, Sheriff!" McGinley flung his arms into the air in exasperation at what he perceived to be Sheriff Cole's stupidity. "They wouldn't sell. Refused outright, didn't want to move. Even though I offered them enough money to buy ten places out east, the old fools! The only way I could get the land is for them to die and I could make a compulsory purchase on their properties as Mayor of the town. I can do that, provided there aint no relatives to benefit from their property. And there were no relatives, I made sure of that."
