May 13, the waterfront statue "Wendy Rose" is vandalized The large, metal statue, which normally stands about 10 feet tall on the Columbia Waterfront Trail, stands a little shorter now."The head, somehow, was stolen," city of Vancouver spokeswoman Barb Ayers said. "I can't fathom how this happened, frankly."... We'll fix it with Bender! The beheaded "Wendy Rose" sculpture was given a temporary, futuristic replacement Wednesday afternoon by high school students.Students in David Richards' welding class at Fort Vancouver High School created a solid metal head resembling Bender, a robot character from the animated television series "Futurama," and secured it at the top of the sculpture. The solid metal head is not permanently attached, said Kris Sork, spokeswoman for Vancouver Public Schools. That's right: Bender. Take that Portland!
