The country town of Henry Adams, Kansas, has been spruced up and spit-shined…but the townspeople are as lovably quirky as ever! Town benefactor Bernadine Brown is determined to stop a big-box chain store from buying up the local farmland—much to the dismay of the farmers, who stand to clean up. Meanwhile, brilliant young Preston Miles may find out that his quest to find his birth parents isn’t so smart. Father-and-son romantic woes are getting Jack and Eli down, but they’re hanging in there, convinced they can win their respective sweeties’ hearts. And to add to the craziness, the local teenagers are going hog-wild, while Mayor Curry tries to defend his own hog, Cletus, from a murder charge! Just a typical week in Henry Adams….
