Tuesday was a day mainly about City Manager Zane Graham-a going away reception was held in his honor at City Hall and was well attended. Zane was also interviewed by KTXS from Abilene about his reasons for resigning. That interview was broadcasted last night at 10:00pm. Then the City Council met last night and appointed Denna Dickard as Actign City Manager until an Interim City Manager can be found. Congratulations Denna! The audit was also presented last night at the meeting and CPA Cathy Wilks gave the City a clean bill of health.
Zane Graham cited the constant micro-managing of new Mayor Carol Sue Dankan and Mayor Pro-Tem Keith Hiser as his primary reason for his resignation. Ciy Manager Zane Graham gives his interview to KTXS. Carol Sue Dakan was also interviewed by KTXS. Congratulations to Denna Dickard on being named acting City Manager for Colorado City.

We sure needed the rain, but with that rain comes a likelihood of wrecks on the Interstate. Thanks to Shady and Debby Mitchell for sending us these pictures of 2 wrecks that occured yesterday afternoon. The above pictures show a wreck that involved an 18 wheeler and an SUV.
The following pictures are from a wreck that occured about 6:30 pm yesterday evening.
The pickup lost control spinning into the oncoming traffic and hit this vehicle containing 4 females. All 4 females were transported to the hospital. Again, special thanks to Shady and Debby Mitchell for sending us these pictures.
