Richard Comer’s name was inadvertently left off the letter to the editor which appeared in the Feb. 25, 2009, edition of The Itawamba County Times.
Additionally, the salary of Mantachie’s mayor was incorrectly reported as $3,500 instead of $3,000. We regret the errors.
Daniel Health now accepting Medicaid
Representatives with Daniel Assisted Living Home in Fulton announced this week they would begin accepting Medicaid immediately.
According to Stacy Seay of Daniel Health Care, the assisted living home is currently accepting applications from people who wish to supplement their monthly payments with Medicaid.
“I think this will be a big help to the people of Itawamba County,” Seay said, adding that many people who would benefit from the services provided by assisted living choose not to apply simply because of cost — costs that Medicaid will help offset.
For more information, contact Seay at 862-2165.
