ELKHART — A local man has volunteered to help save Elkhart’s Wall of Heroes.

The memorial wall at 508 Oakland Ave. is for sale for $35,000. Current owner Don Fisher said he owes $500 back taxes on the property and cannot afford to keep it.

Jason Moreno said he is working with Fisher and has set up an account at First Source Bank to receive donations to save the memorial.

People wishing to donate to the effort can make a donation at any First Source Bank location.

Moreno said he will also ask the Elkhart City Council for a tax abatement on the property as long as it continues to be used as a memorial.

“It not only memorializes veterans but also firefighters and police,” Moreno said. “It’s only appropriate to have something to honor their sacrifice for the community.”

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
