Menagerie threatens Santa’s flight plan

MEGHANN GARCIA MANAGING EDITOR.
Santa might do well to take the next few days to work out a peace agreement among members of the animal kingdom, because packing up the wish lists compiled by area children could otherwise prove to be problematic. Some of the requests are simple enough – puppies and kittens would probably make the trip from the North Pole to Uvalde County peaceably, but throw in the crocodile, tiger, snake, turkeys, pig, pony, turtle, giant bull, monkey, rabbits, fish, octps (octopus?), birds, bear and hamsters requested and it’s a sleigh-wreck waiting to happen.

Health care queries asked, answered

KIM EAGLE STAFF WRITER.
“If I have Medicare do I need to sign up for the Affordable Care Act?” and “Can I get insurance if I have diabetes?” were just two of the questions answered during a special forum held Wednesday and hosted by Community Health Development Inc. and Uvalde Memorial Hospital. Entitled the “Health Insurance Information and Enrollment Forum,” the event aimed to answer questions posed during several one-hour sessions at the Willie De Leon Civic Center. The event was organized so members of the community could gather the information they need to sign up for an insurance plan, as mandated by the Affordable Care Act.
