Twice its been damaged.

And.....once again....it's going to be repaired.

The Gateway Memorial is at Fox Park in LaPorte.

It stands at the entrance to the park at Truesdell Ave.

and McClung Road.

A year ago...the cobblestone memorial was repaired after a car crashed

into it.

Several weeks ago.....it was damaged by a fallen tree limb.

Parks superintendent Mark Schreiber says the memorial has been there since

Fox Park was dedicated in 1913.

Schreiber says it cost about 26 thousand dollars to fix it the first time.

The bill will be more than 30 thousand to repair it the second time.

The work will occur sometime next year.
