Prison cook charged with rape


GOWANDA, NY – New York State Police arrested Jessica Fries, 29, a cook in the Gowanda Correctional Facility, and charged her with third-degree rape and official misconduct.

The arrest came on January 13 after a three-month joint investigation with the New York State State Department of Corrections Inspector General's Office, troopers said in a statement released Saturday.

The investigation was prompted in October by an anonymous letter alleging that Fries was having inappropriate sexual relationships with inmates.

Fries was arrested at her home in Dayton. She was processed at the State Police barracks in Collins and released, and is due in Collins Town Court.


National Trust enters Chautauqua amphitheater debate


Next week, preservationists will wade into the debate on whether to save a beloved performance venue at the Chautauqua Institution or allow a planned renovation to go forward.

This week, the Institution said it would delay its plans to demolish the existing amphitheater to make way for a replica.

Next week Tuesday, the National Trust for Historic Preservation will hold a meeting in Buffalo. While specifics of the meeting are not known, the trust says the time is now for an open, preservation-focused process befitting of this irreplaceable structure.
