HISTORIC COUNTY COURTHOUSE COULD BECOME HOME TO JANUARY 8TH MEMORIAL - The nonprofit January 8th Memorial Foundation is asking the Pima County Bond Advisory Committee for an unspecified amount of money to establish a permanent memorial, possibly inside the old Pima County Courthouse. The group is still researching possible sites and funding sources, said Stephen Brigham, president of the foundation. The board got in touch with the advisory group, he said, to have a "seat at the table" as decisions are made about the future of the courthouse. Much of the first floor will be empty once county offices are relocated in the coming months. From the Star.
