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.

‘Civil Sundays’ not always civil

KIMBERLY RUBIO STAFF WRITER.
In between calls for assaults, burglaries and vehicle crashes, the Uvalde Police Department responds to about 25 civil complaints each month. These cases range from neighbors disputing property lines to separating couples bickering over belongings or children. “We get about 25 calls a month and about half of those are regarding child custody,” Martinez said. “That is probably what we deal with the most.”
