COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho. - Authorities in North Idaho say the economy has stalled fundraising efforts for a $240,000 park to commemorate fire fighters and police officers that died in the line of duty across the state.

Park construction started in Cherry Hill Park next to a September 11 Memorial, but stalled when fundraising slowed.

Parks Director Doug Eastwood says the City has raised about $130,000 and received approximately $40,000 more in in-kind donations, however they are still nearly $70,000 short.

Part of that money will be loaned from the Parks Department Capital Improvement Fund but Eastwood hopes most of it will come from people wanting to sponsor part of the park.

Bricks are being sold to people who wish to engrave the name of friends of family members.  2,000 bricks are being sold in the plaza, according to Eastwood.

The cost of an engraved brick was recently lowered to $50 after selling only a few bricks at the original cost of $100.

Eastwood estimates they have sold approximately 200.

To purchase a brick, call the Coeur d'Alene Parks Department at (208) 769-2252. You can also e-mail questions to parks@cdaid.org

The City hopes to finish construction by September 11, 2009.

    KHQ.COM - Most mothers can only hope by the time their children grow up and move out of the house, they've learned all the necessary things to be a successful adult, including the basic knowledge that a turkey must be cooked in an oven, or perhaps in a smoker... NOT in a microwave. For this reason a new prank-challenge going around on Facebook is resulting in some hilarious text conversations between mothers and their grown children.
