      CLEARFIELD, Pa. - Tourism officials have approved of a plan to build a giant
      deer statue along Interstate 80 to draw tourists to Clearfield.

      The 85-foot-high deer is part of engineer Richard Hughes' plans for a new
      travel and tourism center at an industrial park near the interstate.

      Hughes hasn't estimated the cost of the deer, let alone the new tourism
      center, but he told the Clearfield County Recreation and Tourism Authority
      that he believes most or all of the project could be funded by government
      grants or private donations.

      The tourism board voted Wednesday to approve the idea, which must also pass
      muster with the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and
      other state regulators before the group seeks money for the project.
