Pokémon characters trespass

The Uvalde Police Department supports Pokémon Go app users in their quests to “Catch ‘em all,” but the law enforcement officers don’t want to find the gamers on private property.
 
Pokémon Go is a location-based augmented reality mobile game that allows players to capture, battle and train virtual Pokémon that appear throughout the real world.
 
The game, which is based on the 1990s Pokémon video game and trading cards, has quickly gained popularity since its July 6 release.
 
However, while it is being praised for getting video game users out of the house and exploring the world, police say it has the potential to become a public nuisance and safety hazard.
 
“When you enter somebody’s yard without be invited you are trespassing on private property,” said Leo Flores, UPD Detective.

La Pryor boy diagnosed with often-fatal disease

Instead of registering their 7-year-old son as a second-grade student with La Pryor Independent School District, Amy and Marcus Galindo Sr. signed registration forms at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania, to identify the severity of the young boy’s Krabbe disease diagnosis.
 
According to the family, Marcus Jr. was initially diagnosed two years ago with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disorder. But, after genetic testing, Marcus was re-diagnosed with Krabbe disease, a rare and often-fatal degenerative disorder that affects the myelin sheath of the nervous system.
 
In infants, the disease is generally fatal before age 2; however, juvenile- and adult-onset cases tend to have a slower progression of the disease.
