Kim Gore cries in Judge Robert Freehill’s courtroom at the Orange County Courthouse in Goshen, NY on Friday, July 16, 2010. Gore is the Cuddebackville woman who was convicted in March on aggravated vehicular homicide and second-degree manslaughter resulting from the crash which killed her 3-year-old daughter Sierra Gore in June 2009. She was sentenced by Judge Freehill to 8 1/3 to 25 years on the aggravated vehicular homicide conviction and 5 to 15 years on the manslaughter conviction, to be served concurrently. Gore was high on cocaine at the time of the crash. CHET GORDON/Times Herald-Record


The soaring temperatures and high humidity continues here in the Northeast and around the country the past two weeks or so. Here’s a look at some of my recent work since the Fourth, including a night of boxing following up on the earlier post of portraits of our local fighters, a court sentencing where 40-year old mother was sent to prison for killing her daughter in a cocaine induced motor vehicle accident last summer, a few hot weather, portrait and other features. You know it’s hot out when a little league coach hands out ice-chilled washcloths for his players during an early evening playoff game (above).
One good thing about the weather is it allows me the opportunity to occasionally wear shorts (an
d sandals) if I’m lucky… ~cg.
