Hope fades and winks out

by Jody Hopper
    â€œWe’ll keep the yellow ribbon around the quaking aspen, but it don’t look like they’re coming home,” Shu Arlington, son of Susannah and Albert Arlington, said as he stood outside the Sheriff’s office early this morning. He thanked Sheriff Sweet for all he has done in keeping the family notified of the progress of the search.
    The search has ended. Agent Todd and his team have been called to Alabama to join a manhunt to find three bank robbers who escaped from the state penitentiary in that state. We have been told there is little hope if any that the Arlingtons are still alive. “We haven’t closed the case,” Agent Todd said in his last phone call to Sheriff Sweet. “We’re just not expecting to find them. The time comes when you have to move on.”
