A drive-thru at Fuller Foods?

There's a drive thru window today at Fullers, but it's only temporary!  Actually, it's not a new service, but the result of an accident yesterday afternoon.  Fortunately, no one was hurt, just shaken up a bit!

Thanks to Robert McCumsey and MirrorGlass Photography for this picture taken right after the accident.

One Year Prayer Vigil held for missing teen Hailey Dunn.

A Prayer vigil was held this past Saturday for missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn.  December 27th will mark one year since the CMS student was last seen and the Hope for Hailey organization has worked hard to help keep Hailey in the public eye.  A Christmas tree was placed at Hailey's Hope, in the 1800 block of Chestnut, and ornaments were placed on the tree in honor of Hailey.  As of today, no arrests have been made in connection with Hailey's case.

A crowd of about 50 people were on hand for the Vigil for Hailey Dunn.

A huge banner was placed on the front of Hailey's home for the event.

Hailey's mom, Billie Dunn, places an angel on top of the Christmas tree for her daughter.  Hailey's dad, Clint Dunn has moved to another city and was not on hand for the vigil.

Several of Hailey's classmates were at the event and gave interviews for NewsWest 9.

Shawn Adkins attended the vigil with Hailey's mom Billie Dunn.

An emotional time for Billie Dunn, whose daughter has been missing since December 27th 2010 from Colorado City.
