Update: ‘Kate’ Will Ride Again

“Kate” will ride again. The popular bronze statue stolen from a Coeur d’Alene park in January – and assumed sold for scrap – has been found, dirty and dinged but still in one piece. David Clemons, the Coeur d’Alene artist behind the nostalgic depiction of a woman pedaling a bicycle, didn’t think he’d see her again. “It sounds like a situation which somebody decided it was too hot to try to get rid of it and they just dumped it someplace,” Clemons said Monday. A man looking for antler sheds Saturday on vacant property southeast of Coeur d’Alene stumbled upon the muddy statue, a rope tied around Kate’s neck. He called authorities, who determined it was the missing piece/Scott Maben, SR. More here. (Courtesy photo: City of Coeur d'Alene)
