Esbon Seniors have 'potluck dinner Military retirees eligible for pay The House recently passed legisla- tion to expand the number of military retirees eligible for both retirement and disability pay, known as concurrent receipt. This provision was included in the final bill for the Department of Defense authorization, according to the office of Congressman Jerry Moran, who supported the legislation. "With Veterans Day just around the comer, I am pleased that we have fi- nally made some pro g~ss with con- current receipt eligibility, Moran said. The provision will allow an addi- tional 250,000 military retirees to be eligible for both their retirement and disability pay. Under cunrent !aw, re- tired, disabled veteran' retirenient pay is deducted, dollar for dollar, from any compensation:received for a disabil- ity. The result is that many disabled military retirees essentially pay for their own disability benefits from their re- tirement checks. "We should not only recognize the contributions of service men and women, but remember our responsi- bility to fulfill our commitments to veterans and their families," Moran concluded. SBA loans available for disaster victims Businesses in some counties of Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska and Okla- homa can now apply for low interest Economic Injury Disaster Loans from the U.S. Small Business Administra- tion. These loans are available to help businesses meet normal operating ex- penses that cannot be met because of the effects of a disaster. Various weatherconditions caused many farm- ers and ranchers to experience reduced racemes which may have had an ad- verse economic effect on businesses depending on these producers. Farmers and ranchers are not eli- gible for this loan program, but may be el!gible for dis~ter assistance thrc~ugh omer reoeral agencies.: However, nurs- ery owners who are vietimsofdrought disaster can apply. "Businesses in these counties are eligible to apply: Cloud, Jewell, Mitch- County hospital bazaar is tomorrow The Annual Jewell County Hospi- tal Bazaar is tomorrow (Friday) from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the hospital lobby.
