Even if you are within driving distance of neighbors, your home may be too “remote” for traditional insurance.Bill Stewart, of Stewart Insurance Company, helps people with this issue in his nearby community of La Cañada, which is full of high-risk homes. He explains that it can be difficult to get insurance in brush fire zones or other areas. Stewart says that homeowners now have limited options because many companies re getting out of the ire insurance business.So how do homeowners find companies that cover fire? “Not everybody will do it. For example, State Farm and Allstate, Farmers may not do it in the same area but we have markets that we go to that will write the homeowner insurance in those areas”, Stewart said.Unfortunately, the big insurance companies know where there is likely to be a flood and hurricane and can plan accordingly. “That’s why they’re under no obligation to offer coverage on certain areas. So they get to choose what and where they want to insure”, Stewart said. This may leave you wondering what you need to do next and it’s helpful to have a trusted insurance agent to help you muddle through this slew of requirements. Stewart is qualified and willing to help you sort through these issues.Luckily there are other options out there. Although you will still need a supplement, homeowners can choose a California FAIR plan. “Part of that is because your…..home is situated in an area like high brush risk, high fire risk. So it’s being rated…..in accordance with the risk in the area.”“There’s certainly a risk factor where an insurance company either chooses to insure, not insure or adjust the rates accordingly. So we have an advantage in that Farmers Insurance will do what’s called a Wrap Around Policy or a supplemental policy to the FAIR plan policy,” Stewart explained.Homeowners insurance is not the only policy you need, review your automobile, life and homeowners insurance with trusted agents and reevaluate your coverage needs after major life changes.

Champions crowned on the final day of the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s, pictured with IMCA President Brett Root at left and Boone Speedway’s Coty Mallicoat at right, were Donavon Smith, Stock Car; Ricky Thornton Jr., Modified; Nathan Ballard, Hobby Stock; and Johnathon Logue, Northern SportMod. (Photo by Bruce Badgley, Motorsports Photography) Thornton earned $3,000 when he repeated as Late Model champion on Labor Day, qualified for the Stock Car feature, won the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational on Friday and then became the first driver to win two championships at the same Super Nationals by running away from the rest of the field after midway of the $7,000 to win Modified main event. Also the 2014 and 2019 Northern SportMod champion, Logue scored a rare double by winning the BSB Manufacturing Race of Champions. Last-chance qualifier, Smith raced from 25th starting and took the lead with two laps left in winning his third Stock Car crown in his record 14th straight main event appearance. Smith, who took home a career-best $5,000 paycheck, had reigned at Boone in 2009 and 2012. Another two-division star, Kelly Shryock took home $1,175 for his Sunoco Race Fuels Race of Champions Stock Car win. BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 13) – Ricky Thornton Jr. raced to wins at the beginning and the end of a history-making week, Donavon Smith and Johnathon Logue became three-time champions while Nathan Ballard motored to his first title at the 2020 IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. And Cody Nielsen led the last 10 times around the track in winning the Stephenville Starter Race of Champions for Hobby Stocks. He led the last eight laps in topping the caution-free ROC, calling the eagle trophy that went with the checkers the addition to his race shop collection he’s always wanted, then led the last 27 circuits in the 30-lap main event to collect $3,000. Ballard outran defending race winner Dylan Nelson in leading start to finish of the Hobby Stock main, following the fast high line to the $2,000 victory. The Sunday conclusion for what is always the biggest event on the IMCA schedule was the first for the Modifieds since 1996 and first-ever for the Stock Cars, Northern SportMods and Hobby Stocks. Twenty-three states were represented at Super Nationals, where a purse of $300,000-plus was complemented by bonuses from IMCA.TV and more than $60,000 in contingencies were awarded. In all, 834 cars – including 245 Modifieds and an event record 207 Stock Cars – saw action during a socially distanced week at Boone Speedway that also saw more than its share of rain and rescheduled race programs. Jesse Sobbing traded the lead with Troy Cordes in one of the most competitive events of the entire week, winning the Harris Auto Racing Modified Race of Champions and $1,700 following a dash to the finish line. Tuesday’s scheduled Sport Compact main event was lost to rain.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists his players have to step up in the absence of captain Steven Gerrard after a frustrating goalless draw at home to Sunderland. Press Association “That is a decision I make as a manager,” said Rodgers when asked about the forward’s absence. Black Cats manager Gus Poyet admits he would leap at the chance to take Borini back to the Stadium of Light. “I would love to,” he said before attempting to address the collapse of the transfer. “It is difficult to explain. It was a long summer and the things everyone knows, we agreed a price and we flew to America (for Liverpool’s pre-season tour) and he didn’t come. “The bottom line is he is not with us. I am trying to concentrate on what we have got.” What they had was good enough to keep their hosts at bay, having been beaten 4-1 by Manchester City in midweek. “First half we were much better with the ball than in the last three or four games,” Poyet added. “We are just missing that cutting edge but in the rest of the game we were quite good.” “We can’t always rely on Stevie. His talent is world-class but that contribution has to come around the team,” he said. “It can’t be up to him every single game to be the catalyst. “It is very hard to replace that quality but going forward that is something of course we will need. “He was excellent when he came on and of course he plays on Tuesday. “He still has that talent, he has world-class ability and it is me looking to manage that. “We have a big month. Until the new year there are big games and the management of Steven is fine, there is no problem with that.” Only Aston Villa and Burnley have scored fewer goals at home than Liverpool’s seven and Rodgers’ decision to leave Fabio Borini out of the squad – meaning he had no striker on the bench – was questioned. The Italian enjoyed a good loan spell at Sunderland last season and almost joined them in the summer after Liverpool agreed a deal to sell him. With a must-win match at home to Basle in the Champions League on Tuesday, followed by a trip to Old Trafford, the 34-year-old midfielder was left on the bench until 23 minutes from the end. He could not inspire his side to victory but Rodgers admits it should not always be up to him.
