Constructions gangs arrive in Dipperville to work on the tramlines and the new stadium. Ms Aamodt arrives from Williston, ND with her travelling Turkish Massage and Senior Well-Drillers' Wrestling Boutique. (maybe Ranting Alice purchases this from Ms. Aamodt and runs it from the drugstore parking lot.)
The Chief's space ship kit arrives on three huge 18-wheelers. The Chief releases the Russians every night so they can help Tony (Tony's TV) work on the ship electronics. A special concrete launch pad has been constructed in the town park opposite the Dog Eat Dog so the Russians and Tony don't have far to walk. Problem is they can never find a seat with all the construction workers in there. They complain to City Hall.
