Lake Shore Hospital to Remain Open


IRVING, NY- A Chautauqua County Hospital that was in danger of closing after its parent company declared bankruptcy will remain open.

Congressman Tom Reed (R-NY 23) says TLC Health Network is also cancelling planned layoffs

"Lake Shore plays a significant role in the quality of life in our area – from giving patients the critical health care they need to the hundreds of jobs the hospital supports," Congressman Reed said in a statement.

"That's why news that the hospital will stay open and cancel layoffs is so important for Chautauqua County jobs will stay in the area and families won't have to travel long distances to access they care they need."

The hospital filed for bankruptcy last December.

Learn about Bird Research at Audubon

Jamestown, NY – Hundreds of area residents as well as out-of-towners have been fascinated by the bird banding they have observed at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary.

At the next First Friday Lunch Bunch on September 5, you can learn about some of the bird-related research happening at Audubon when Terry LeBaron and Jennifer Schlick present “A Bird in the Hand.”  

At the 11 a.m. event you can see pictures and hear stories about the group of ornithologists doing research at the Riverside Road sanctuary. Starting the last Saturday in April, these bird scientists do a spring migration demonstration of bird banding. Throughout the summer, they continue banding to collect data about the birds that breed there.

Audubon also has many nest boxes on the property that are monitored by volunteers and student interns. All of these projects enable many people to see birds “up close and personal.”
