Sheriff's Dept. warns of resurfaced scam in Chautauqua County...

The Chautauqua County Sheriff's Department is urging residents to be aware of a scam that's resurfaced in which the caller says you've won one-million dollars... but, adds you have to pay a large amount to get the winnings.  Deputies say the caller will sound "very convincing" about you winning... but, they ask people not to fall for the scam.  They say a person in the town of Chautauqua received such a call Monday... and, alerted the Sheriff's Office.  Deputies say the people involved are usually from overseas... and, have been doing these types of scams for many years.  If anyone receives these types of calls, officers encourage you to tell them not to call you again, and hang up.  They say it's not a good idea to carry on a conversation with these people... and, never give out your personnel information.  If the person keeps calling make sure you contact your local police and report it.

Jammers set to begin NY-P League baseball season this Friday...

The Jamestown Jammers season opens this Friday night at Russell E. Diethrick Jr. Park.  Jammer's General Manager Matt Drayer says he doesn't know exactly who Pittsburgh will send to play here this year... but, adds he's anxious to get started.  Drayer says it's been a long Winter... the snow is finally gone... and, the weather is nice and early Summer-like.  He says all they need now is a team on the field, and a packed house.  The Jamestown Jammers play in the NY-P League, and is part of the Short Season 'A' level of professional baseball.  There are 38 home games beginning with a four-game home stand against Mahoning Valley, Ohio.  One of the new promotions this season will be this Saturday beginning at 4:30 p.m., and Drayer says, it should be very appealing to children.  He says they've teamed up with the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce to sponsor a "Touch at Truck" event.  They'll be getting a large variety of trucks and vehicles for the program... along with a kids carnival and dunk tank.  Saturday's 'Touch a Truck' event will go right up to game time at 7:05 p.m.  Most all Jammers games start at that time... but, Sunday home games will begin at 4:05.  Ticket prices have not increased.  For more information... go on-line to the Jammers website... or, call them at 664-0915.
