Greater Tuna returns to Orange for one performance only at the Lutcher Theater on Tuesday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m.

Greater Tuna is a hilarious and irreverent comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of Tuna citizens – men, women, children and animals alike – is portrayed by only three performers, making this satire on life in rural America both crazy and delightful.

Tickets are $35-$45 and can be purchased online at lutcher.org or by calling (409) 886-5535.

Q. Is it true that medical bills or accounts are not allowed to remain on your credit report for more than four years in the state of Texas?

A. It is not true. Medical bills are basically the same as any other debt. They stay on your credit report for seven years. There is a four-year statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit for a debt; however, the fact that you cannot be sued does not mean you no longer owe the debt, and it will not become “obsolete” and removed from your credit report for seven years.
