      Tax Increase Could Resurrect Monumental Project In Sand Springs


      On election day, Sand Springs voters could decide to bring a monument to their community.

      At 21 stories, "The American" would be taller than the Statue Of Liberty.

      And the price is gigantic as well, $36-million in private funds.

      An exact location has not been released.

      Next Tuesday, Sand Springs voters will decide whether to increase a hotel tax to help pay for its promotion.

      The tax increase would provide $90,000 in tourism money for Sand Springs.
