Carolyn Shifflett (C) is filling in at the crosswalk in front of Harrison Middle School on South 16th Street, where her late husband, Ronnie Shifflett, spent much of the past 11 years. "I feel comfortable filling in for my husband," she said. He was killed in a pedestrian-automobile accident in July. "We're happy to have her out here helping us," said Chico Rodriguez (R), Sunnyside school resource officer.
