Signs, bags may be installed at parks to combat animal waste

 
 
 
 
Animal excrement in city-owned parks, particularly at the Memorial and De Leon parks, was a topic of discussion Sept. 27 when Uvalde City Council members met for a regularly scheduled meeting at city hall.
 
Councilman Steve Balke said he has received multiple complaints from city residents regarding animal excrement at the East Main and Silvestre Street parks.
 
As a solution, Susan Anderson, director of community planning, suggested placing signage at the parks reminding owners to clean up after their animals.
 
Council members also suggested placing plastic bags and waste buckets near the signage.
 
The signs were priced at $170 a sign and plastic bags would run .20 cents each.

‘We had to move mountains’: Family, grateful for community support, still has journey ahead

 
 
 
by Kimberly Rubio, staff writer
When 2-year-old Jaxson Martinez was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2014, doctors gave him a 30-percent chance of survival. Two years later, he is a happy 4-year-old boy in remission.
 
Jaxson is the son of Judy and Juan Martinez. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma in September of 2014 after doctors discovered a tumor in his head. A second tumor was later discovered in his abdomen.
 
“Jaxson presented with a bump on the left temple,” Juan Martinez said. “After visiting seven doctors in seven days we were finally given the opportunity for an MRI, [Magnetic Resonance Imaging] although our physician’s office thought we weren’t going to find anything.”
 
Martinez said Jaxson’s physician believed the toddler had simply bumped his head, but Martinez said his son’s symptoms were not conducive with a minor head injury.
