Adams Memorial Hospital officials have announced that information provided to hundreds of area senior citizens from United Healthcare concerning physicians covered in their Medicare Advantage Plan was partially incorrect.

Decatur resident Kenny Roop has had his fill of snow — enough to last the entire winter season. Shoveling the sidewalk in front of his 11th Street home in Decatur Tuesday morning, Roop said simply, “I’m tired of it.” Area residents may be able to put their snow shovels away for awhile, with unseasonably warm temperatures and even a little rain in the forecast for later this week.
