Lost AP Exams Located By UPS

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Wednesday that the more than 100 lost Advanced Placement exams from Starpoint High School in Lockport have been located by UPS and are now on their way to be scored. After receiving a letter from Starpoint High School students, Schumer called directly on UPS CEO, Carol B. Tome, last month to use all available resources. The senator also hosted a video call last month with students to assure them of his efforts to help locate their tests. “I loved working directly with the Starpoint High School students and administration to find the AP tests they studied long and hard for,” Schumer said. “I am proud to announce that the tests have been found and the Starpoint students are over the moon – and I join them in their excitement! UPS will get no demerits for handing in these exams late and relieving the anxiety of these students who will now get the results they worked so hard for.”

Hands On

Neighborhoods Set For Saturday

The volunteer-based program Hands On Neighborhoods continues Saturday with a bit of a twist to the 2021 schedule of Jamestown community cleanups. The cleanup will serve the neighborhoods between North Main Street to Lakeview Avenue and Eighth to Buffalo streets. Volunteers are strongly encouraged to preregister by visiting CHQLandbank.org/HandsOn. Registration the day of the event will be at 8 a.m. at 847 Spring St. The cleanup events to follow have an updated schedule. Unfortunately, it rained on July’s cleanup event day, so it was postponed. A makeup event will take place Thursday, Aug. 26, 6-8 p.m. Unique to this event, volunteers do not need to preregister and can meet at the Gazebo on 10th Street next to Temple Apostolic Church. September’s event has been pushed back one week from Sept. 18 to Sept. 25, with Oct. 16 being the last of seven community cleanups across the city of Jamestown. Additionally, the Hands On Neighborhoods volunteers are invited to a social event to celebrate the hours of work spent supporting local Jamestown neighborhoods. More details will follow. Follow Chautauqua County Land Bank on Facebook and Instagram at CHQLandbank or follow the program directly on Facebook by searching Hands On Neighborhoods. Hands On was developed by the Chautauqua County Land Bank in collaboration with the city of Jamestown, Jamestown Renaissance Corp. and Zion Covenant church.

Program sponsors include Lakeshore Savings Bank and Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency, in addition to event sponsors including Jamestown Tarp Skunks, ERA Real Estate and Jim Cama Family.
