Hurd’s constituents have personal, national economic concerns

 
 
by Meghann Garcia, managing editor
“If you’ve got a veterans guy, he needs to get on that because I’m broke right now.”
 
That was the message a Purple Heart recipient imparted to U.S. Congressman Will Hurd on Aug. 9 during the legislator’s DC2DQ event held at the Dairy Queen in Uvalde.
 
It came during the question-and-answer session of Hurd’s meeting, with the veteran saying his Veterans Benefits check was lost and a replacement reportedly won’t arrive for six weeks.
 
“I asked what I’m supposed to do to pay bills,” he said, adding that the faceless U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs representative on the phone didn’t have an answer.
 
“A lot of people don’t understand,” continued the veteran, his voice breaking before he finished his thought. “That money is Purple Heart... it’s blood money.”

by Kimberly Rubio, staff writer
A Uvalde woman was hospitalized Aug. 7 after she was attacked by a pair of stray dogs. Two witnesses used a shirt and a belt as a makeshift tourniquet in an attempt to slow the victim’s profuse bleeding.
 
Uvalde Police and EMS were dispatched to the 400 block of Fort Clark Road at approximately 9:13 p.m.
 
According to the police report, Rebecca Cruz said she was walking around Sacred Heart Catholic Church when two dogs lunged at her. Cruz identified one of the dogs as a white labrador and the other as a brown mixed breed.
 
Dionicio Granado Jr. and Roy Moreno were on their way home when they observed the attack. The two men rushed to Cruz’s assistance and utilized a shirt and a belt as a make-shift tourniquet.
 
Cruz was taken to Uvalde Memorial Hospital.
