Law firm's ice sculpture destroyed

Traverse City artist Steven Berkshire spent a lot of time creating nice-looking ice sculpture, which was commissioned by the local law office of Grand Rapids-based Smith, Haughey, Rice & Rogge.

Meant to be enjoyed by the Traverse City community, the artwork was installed last Friday in front of the firm's downtown office. It was supposed to last as long as there was freezing weather, but by Sunday afternoon, thanks to a thoughtless vandal, it was turned into a forlorn pile of chunks.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle quotes firm partner Robert Tubbs as saying, "[W]e tried to do something nice for the holidays ... obviously it was disappointing someone decided to do that."

A cold-hearted someone, at that.
