Chess vandalism

[Peter Helzer's] most famous work in this region is perhaps the bronze Chess Player that until recently was seated at a granite table in Vogel Plaza. That work was damaged last fall when two men from Klamath Falls tried to steal it. "The men were arrested and convicted, but the Chess Player sustained about $3,000 worth of damage," said Bev Power, park and recreation department spokesperson. "Peter Helzer is repairing that for us and as soon as he is finished we will put it back in Vogel Plaza."
