( ! -800-843-3245) *" I [ " www. ! 8ootheeagle.(:ol FOR THE TROOPS -Walsh County Veterans Service Office Talking about disability compensation for veterans Disability Compensation is a monetary benefit that is paid to Veterans who are disabled by an injury or illness that was incurred or aggravated during active military service. These disabilities are considered to be service connected and will be treated by the Department of Veterans Affairs for the duration of the veterans life. Monthly disability compensation varies with the degree of disabil- ity and the number of eligible dependents. These benefits are not sub- ject to federal or state income tax. To be eligible for compensation the Veteran must have been separated from the military under conditions other than dishonorable. Payments of disability compensation are based on the percentage of the disability that is established by law. Percentages are from 0% - 100% with monetary payments starting at the 10% level. Once veterans reach the 30% level they may qualify for an increase in their monthly ben- efit if they currently have any dependents. Veterans who are at the 50% level qualify for treatment of any medical condition except dental con- ditions unless those dental conditions are service connected, then they would be covered. Those veterans that are at the 50% disability lev- el and are military retirees are eligible for what is called Concurrent Retirement and Disability pay (CRDP). This means that military re- tirees who are also at least 50% disabled can get both their disability compensation and retirement pay, all other retired veterans at less than the 50% level must choose between the two. There are a lot of disabilities that can be service connected and the Walsh county Veteran Service Office would love to talk to you about the benefits that you may be entitled to. Please feel free to give our office a call at 701-352-5030 or stop by for a visit at 638 Cooper Av- enue Suite 5 Grafton, ND. Thank you for your service.

What may work well for one county's valuation procedure may not work well for another county. For instance, coun- ties in the Red River Valley have topography and production factors very different from counties in the Badlands; counties in the Turtle Mountains have different issues from those in the Missouri Coteau region. Each county must make ferences in east and west such as the salinity and perpetual water is- sues out west. He said that they don't have much legal recourse.

Fhfih6 Union Zikmund awarded honor at Lake Region State College for 'Burning Memory' essay PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Lake Region State College has chosen Abby Zikmund, the daughter of Jacqui and Tim Zikmund, to receive the school's writing excellence award for her essay "Burning Mem- ory." To be eligible for the award, a student must be a part- or full-time student at LRSC; Abby, a senior at Park RiverArea Schools, is enrolled in college credit English 110 and 120 classes taught on the ITV net- work. Abby will be awarded a plaque at the LRSC graduation ceremony on May 16, and her name will be permanently displayed on a plaque in the Lake Region College Hall of Fame. Also, as the winner, Abby's biography and her essay will be fea- tured on the opening pages of the college's magazine of the arts, Shorelines, which is published an- nually each summer. Abby's essay was written as a memoir for English class and details the impact on her life and emotions when her childhood home was razed by fire in order to make room for a new home. With insight, her essay shows readers that buildings are perhaps not as important as the memories made inside them. "Abby is an exceptional English student, who is very insightful and motivated. One of the main reasons that her writing excels over others is that she strives to edit and improve her original work. She seeks con- stmctive criticism. It has been a joy to have had such a hard-working and polite student in my English class- es throughout the years and to see the continual maturity and growth of her writing skills," states her Eng- lish instructor, Edie Rygh. One of the main reasons that her writing excels over others is that she strives to edit and improve her original work. She seeks con- structive criticism."
