Beheaded Vancouver statue restored

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A statue that was beheaded by vandals two months ago in Vancouver is whole again.

Workers placed a new head Tuesday on the 10-foot tall Wendy Rose statue overlooking the Columbia River.

The Columbian reports ( http://bit.ly/13E3N8v) the original head and the vandals who took it in May have not been found.

The Wendy Rose name is a reference to Rosie the Riveter, symbol of women who worked in shipyards in Vancouver and elsewhere during World War II.

The statue stands along Vancouver's Waterfront Renaissance Trail.
