JACOBS MAKES BOATER’S SAFETY GUIDE AVAILABLE AT CLERK'S OFFICE

Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs announced that the New York State Boater’s Guide is now available through his office. The guidebook is made possible by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation. The guide provides a summary of the more important laws, registration and training requirements, as well as suggested safety information governing recreational boating within New York State.

“Just like there are ‘rules of the road’ for vehicles, there are ‘rules of the waterway’ that govern the safe maneuvering of watercrafts”, said County Clerk Jacobs. “I encourage all recreational boaters and jet skiers to know the risks, learn the rules and be prepared before taking the helm this boating season.”

With increased competition comes a higher risk of injury, especially seen with young baseball pitchers. Common ailments include tearing of the ulnar collateral ligament of the elbow or medial epicondyle apopysitis (Little League elbow) in the throwing arm. These injuries often result in surgery and require physical therapy prior to returning to play. Studies have shown that college pitchers were much more prone to injury if they experienced a prior injury during youth play.
