The Elks are selling mini bronze statues to raise money for a full-size memorial.

The Chino Valley Elks Lodge #2842 is raising money for a bronze monument to honor the 19 fallen Granite Mountain Hot Shots. The lodge already has a limited number of bronze 10-inch high miniature statues available for purchase at $1,250, of which $750 goes to the foundry and $500 to the monument fund, Hot Shot Monument Committee Chair Klaus Nietzschmann said. The miniature version is on display at the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce.

The Elks have applied to the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors for permission to erect the 76-inch tall statue on an 18-inch concrete base at the courthouse square in Prescott.

"We don't know where it will be yet, but it will be," Nietzschmann said.

To donate to the project or purchase a mini statue, call Nietzschmann at 928-636-3947.

We all know what happened...please don't make us relive this nightmare every time we go downtown.... What's with Prescott? They have to build a memorial, name a crosswalk or name some obscure donkey path after someone every time ANYONE does ANYTHING. I am so tired of people being singled out....as if the rest of the rest of the people are of no value. Honor our firefighters...agreed. Honor their memories...agreed...hold their families dear...agreed. But there is no need to push people to painful memories upon coming to the square.

Do we have to be reminded when we go to the square.
