CANYON, Texas (AP) - A towering but tattered cowboy landmark in
the Texas Panhandle could be forced to mosey along.
The 47-foot-tall Tex Randall statue in Canyon might lose its
KVII-TV reports a potential out-of-state buyer wants the
property when the four-ton artwork stands -- but not Tex Randall.
Tex Randall was erected in 1959 to promote a Western store. It
features a broadly smiling, cowboy hat-wearing fellow with one arm
on his leg and the other on his hip.
The owner and the Canyon Chamber of Commerce are hoping some
nonprofit organization will save Tex Randall.
Canyon Chamber of Commerce executive director Cheryl Malcolm
says it's so sad to lose something that's so historically connected
to the city.
Canyon is about 20 miles south of Amarillo.
