The city’s famous card players may be making a return sooner than expected.

After the unfortunate destruction of the former card player statue following a candlelight memorial for the late Show Low Police Officer Darrin Reed, the project of rebuilding the art piece is nearing completion.

What a waste of money...[ban]


Several years ago I donated my mother's pictures of her grandfather, Corydon E Cooley, to the Show Low Museum. It is so gratifying to see that those images are now being used to make a lasting tribute to the man and the card game that named the town of Show Low. I know my mother would be very proud.


I have to agree abut the money part of the unbudgeted expense. Some items at the a few of the cities public facilities need help, so will the city make the repairs or upgrades???
As far as a better replica of the card players I am all in with that.
