New bench honoring fallen Lockport soldier replaces destroyed one


In August, community members discovered a memorial bench, honoring a fallen soldier on Locust Street, had been vandalized.

Specialist Albert Jex's mother, Cathy MacFarlane, was devastated that someone would do this.

Jex was killed in Iraq in 2009 from an IED explosion.

A local company, Orleans Monument, said it would be too tough to put the heavy $2,100 granite bench back together, so they offered to build a new one honoring the Lockport native for free.

Tuesday morning, the new bench was installed at Children's Memorial Park on Transit and Lincoln. MacFarlane thinks it's a fitting location because it's very visible and will enjoy use in a better location than where it previously was.

There are still no leads regarding who vandalized the original bench in the first place.


Lockport Police Lieutenant Pleads Not Guilty to DWI


NEWFANE, NY - A Lockport police lieutenant left a Newfane courtroom Tuesday night, after answering charges that he was allegedly driving drunk this weekend and smashed into a parked car.

Lieutenant Adam Piedmont pleaded not guilty to those charges Tuesday.

"Just the whole back end of it was in the front seat, my back seat was in my front seat," said Christina Dorato, who says that Piedmont smashed into her car.

Around 4 a.m. Sunday, Dorato says she was home.

"He hit my car very hard, he was going very fast," Dorato said.
