Canyon, TX - Efforts to save Tex Randall are gaining strength thanks to a former Canyon man.
Stan Ely, has started a "Save Tex Randall" Facebook page and set up accounts at Happy State Bank so you can donate to the cause.
The historic statue is in danger because he is to big to move and the current owner wants to sell the property, but no one wants to buy with Tex standing there.
For quite a bit less than what a realtor might pay for him, he wants $55,000 but he will take $25,000 down and will carry the note.
The Facebook page has more than 4,000 members and is growing.
Mr. Ely's idea is to make Tex a roadside park and gift it to the city of Canyon.
