Cobleskill Girls Softball Swept in Non-Conference Play

Written By Editor on 4/10/17 | 4/10/17


Troy, N.Y.: For the first time in exactly one month, due to the strange weather conditions that have affected the region; the SUNY Cobleskill women’s softball team was able to take the field dropping a pair of non-league contests to host Sage College at the Gators’ Robinson Field by scores of 5-1 and 17-3. With the losses the Fighting Tigers move to 1-5 overall on the season while the Gators improve to 8-10 overall.
In the first game the Fighting Tigers trailed 2-1 going into the bottom of the fifth inning when the home team rallied for three runs to put the contest out of reach.
Sophomore second baseman Briana Becker, Euless, Texas, Trinity High School, drove in her double play partner junior shortstop Jaimee Lord, Mechanicville, N.Y., Ballston Spa High School, with a single in the fifth inning as part of a 1-for-3 effort at the plate. Lord operating out of the lead-off spot was 1-for-1 with two walks and a pair of stolen bases in the game.
Freshman pitcher Katerina Weingarten, Carlise, N.Y., Cobleskill-Richmondville High School, took the loss going the distance allowing three earned runs over six innings; striking out three hitters while allowing two walks and six hits.
In the second game the Gators scored early and often as the Cobleskill pitching and defense struggled in the early going allowing Sage to build a 10-1 lead after three innings on their way to a 17-3 decision in five innings.
Jaimee Lord continued her hot hitting in the second game for the Orange & Black going 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored with sophomore designated hitter Gabrielle Danthine, Sloansville, N.Y., Schoharie, N.Y., going 1-for-2 in the game with a double and a pair of runs batted in.

Uninsured Drivers and Road Safety

By Michael Ehline

New York State is one of the majority of states to require drivers have insurance on their vehicles. There are multiple tiers of insurance available for drivers. You’re bombarded with the biggest companies offering their wares, whether it be State Farm, Geico, Liberty Mutual, or others. Each has their advantages and drawbacks. However, despite the requirements for insurance, one of the largest issues remains uninsured or underinsured motorists.

Underinsured motorists include drivers that do not carry the value replacement cost of their vehicles. In some cases they do not carry liability, or often referred to as casualty, insurance. Sometimes drivers do not purchase collision coverage on their vehicles, leaving them in the lurch in case of an accident.

In other cases, drivers refuse to buy car insurance at all. There are some instances where drivers do not realize they need to carry insurance. However, that is a minimum of cases. Many drivers who lost their license do not drive with insurance. Sometimes illegal immigrants do not carry insurance. All of these scenarios add to a real mess when someone is involved in a crash.

Without the proper insurance, many drivers simply flee. Uninsured motorists are a leading cause of hit and run style accidents. There are other cases where a family is severely injured due to the crash and the other driver has no policy. This leaves them personally liable for all physical and emotional injury and damage.

All of these cases provide a complicated landscape for drivers. A person getting behind the wheel or waving off their loved ones shouldn’t have to worry about whether one of the other drivers is carrying insurance. That is where responsible attorneys step in to protect the rights of vehicle operators.

The Perils of Liability

By Michael Ehline

Many companies go back and forth on the type of insurance to carry on their property. Parents want the best type of insurance for their kids before they get behind the wheel of a car. There are many varieties of insurance and more companies willing to sell it to you. However, many of these companies instead sell a bill of goods. In some cases, some of the largest insurance companies also rook their own policy holders. State Farm was slapped by multiple lawsuits recently for doing such that. Companies from large to small are not immune fromt he allure of greed or incompetence. A discerning consumer will be able to make the best of the situation.

Bad faith insurance actions are more common that you think. Not honoring the policy signed by both parties is a breach of contract and a violation of the consumer’s rights. Whether it be car, home, or business insurance, they’re taken out in case of an emergency. The policy holder depend on it when they need it the most. To pull out the rug on accident victims or a business owner being sued at that moment is often cruel and unexpected. We see such things happen every day.

To avoid such a situation, it is important to weigh the many factors of an insurance policy. Research that company’s record with consumers and watchdog groups. Have they been cited by local, state, or federal agencies for refusing to live up to their obligations? Are they frequently involved in litigation? All of these help you make up your mind and get the best possible policy for the worst possible moment.
