Lease Signin! The good news for veterans is that if you served in the active military and were separated under any condition other than dishonorable you may qualify for VA healthcare benefits. This includes former members of the National Guard or Reserves that were called to active duty by a federal order and completed the term of service for which they were called. For guardsman and reservists this was most likely a deployment. (Initial en- try n'aining does not count as active duty time) It is quite simple to enroll there are only a couple of fonns to fill out at your local veterans service office and then it-'s up to flae VA to decide if you quali~. Once your qualification is verified you will be placed into a priority group based on several factors including income and whether or not the veteran has a service connected disability. There is unfortunately an income requirement for eligibility: -A Veteran with no dependents needs to make less than $35,705 per year -A Veteran with one dependent needs to make less than $40.850 per year -The numbers go up from there based on the number of dependents and may vary depending on your state and county of residence. Don't think that just because your income is over these amounts that you do not quali~, one thing to keep in mind is that your medical expenses do offset your income when VA considers your eligibility. Copay Rates for non service connected veterans: -Outpatient Primary care $15 -Outpatient Specialty care $50 -Medication Copays of $8 or $9 depending on income (30 day supply) Contact the Walsh county Veterans Service office at 638 Cooper Av- enue Suite 5 in Grafton or call 701-352-5030 for more information.

This past February in Park River Beryl White had her 90th birthday party. One person who was not in atten- dance was a woman with the same birthday just five minutes apart her twin sister. Evelyn Young. Evelyn. who lives in Las Vegas, spent the last week .in Park River with her sister, catching up with old friends. Born Evelyn and Beryl Walters on Feb. 17, 1923, Beryl said she didn't know if her mother knew she was having twins, but she thinks the doctor had an idea because rather than delivering in his home office in Walhalla, N.D., he sent their mother to Grafton to deliver at the hospital there. 'q say I kicked her out to t~el the cold air first," Beryl laughed. The two were named by their sister, who was 14 at the time, and that is why they say they didn't end up with "twin Call Katie @701-331-9515 Professionally Managed by Prairie Homes Management 1-888-893-9501 -- toll free TTY: 1-800-366-6888 EHO names".

They moved around, but the girls eventually made their way to Park River to attend Walsh Coun- ty Agricultural School. They stayed with families in Park River while completing their educations. Evelyn stayed with the Bert Hardy family and Beryl stayed with the Art Meagher family doing chores to earn their room and board. They ended up in different places after both marrying marines. Eve- lyn's husband was a survivor of Pearl Harbor and Beryl's was on Iwo Jima. Evelyn ended up in Las Vegas working as a school cafeteria area manager in charge of kitchen pro- duction and Befyl-ifi Park River working tbr the government, but they still got together now and then, finding that they had quite a few similarities even though they were apart. They laughed remembering hav- ing similar senses of tastes once with similar coats m a maroon col- or and again with same style of flooring in their homes. They talked about making a stop in Walhalla, but they said life has changed since they lived there. They were quite content in Park Riv- er visiting, laughing and sharing a lifetime of memories with good friends. Your Professional Prescription Service We offer... Mail-Out Prescriptions.
