Loading the Model In Controller
I'm kind of unclear as to how to do this with FUEL. I decided to use the regular CodeIgniter controller/view process of displaying information. So referencing the model from the controller should be as simple as $this->load->model('foo'). But for some reason it isn't working. I'm calling this from within the index() method of the CI_Controller (or the class that extends it).
