Tomorrow, we will celebrate the life and legacy of my dear friend, John Chase. A dedicated public servant, beloved family member and good friend to many--his was a life well-lived but one that ended far too soon. My deepest condolences to his family and all who loved him. He will be missed.

In this week’s adult #swim classes, Coach Mike and Coach Victor incorporated proper use of pool safety/rescue equipment. Many of our adult participants are now learning to swim because they want to take grandchildren to the pool or beach and don’t because they don’t know how to swim.

#aca Myth: Insurers are dropping out. . FALSE. In fact, the highest number of insurers are participating this year since 2015. There will be 23 more insurers participating in HealthCare.Gov states and 29 insurers are expanding their coverage to additional counties in 2019 compared to 2018. Overall 58 percent of enrollees in all 39 states using HealthCare.Gov will have three or more insurers to choose from. That means more choices and competitive prices for consumers. . #getcovered at HealthCare.Gov or CuidadodeSalud.Gov
