Cracks below the folded arms of the Black Hawk Statue appear to be widening as the winter cold takes its toll. A final round of testing on the landmark, located at Lowden State Park near Oregon, has been delayed by snow and cold weather. Repairs to the 103-year-old concrete statue are set to begin in the spring.
