For years, Bryant firefighters have said no to Black Friday shopping and yes to the Fill the Boot Campaign through the Muscular Dystrophy Association. They raise money to help kids like Katy Sue Haynie, the fire department’s inspiration this year. “She’s kind of their champion, she gets them pumped up,” said Lindsey Haynie, Katy Sue’s mom. "She comes by the station and visits us and she's just become a part of our family,” said Cpt. David Slack, Bryant firefighter. Katy Sue has muscle disease. "Her right leg is turning in drastically and that will have to be intervened at some point in time,” said Haynie. While the little girl has been the firefighters' biggest cheerleader, they are hers now. Bryant firefighters lined the streets with a boot on Friday and collected change from drivers.
