Rudolph the reindeer has returned to Sue Bridgman Florist on Warm Springs Road in Ketchum. And this time, he has a companion—Clarice. During the early morning of Dec. 7, vandals destroyed a previous version of Rudolph, as well as a 12-foot-tall metal palm tree that had been part of the store’s Christmas display. Store employee Meggi Corwin said the new inflatable reindeer, which together cost $850, were bought with the help of an anonymous donor. Corwin said there is no plan to replace the palm tree. A spokeswoman for the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office, which administers the Ketchum Police Department, said Tuesday that no arrests have been made in the case and it remains under investigation.
