Veteran Service News By Dan Meyer Big Stone Co. Veteran Service Officer The office hours for the Big Stone County Veterans I Service Office are 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. My office phone number is (320) 839-6398. I want to thank all the veterans and civilians who attended Amy Klobuchar's visit to our County on Nov. 12, at the Ortonville VFW. Senator Klobuchar is a true veteran's advocate and is committed to making sure that our veterans are recognized for their military service to this great Nation. Senator Klobuchar presented the Flag of the United States of America that was flown over the United States Capitol. A Certificate for the Flag was also presented to the Big Stone County Veterans on behalf of their service to the United States of America. I will be purchasing (with outreach grant dollars) a shadow box for the U.S. Flag and the accompanying Certificate for display. This shadow box will be displayed at the County Courthouse for all county residence to enjoy, and be present for display at future veteran's Outreach events. All Big Stone County residents should be very proud of our veterans. Freedom is not free, it comes with a price)!!! In other news. Veterans Affairs (VA) to Fast Track to claims for Agent Orange exposure. VA has announced an aggressive new initiative to solicit private-sector input on a proposed "fast track" veterans' claims process for service- connected presumptive illnesses due to Agent Orange exposure during the Vietnam War. They affect veterans with Parkinson's disease, ischemic heart disease, and B-cell leukemias. In practical terms, veterans covered by the "presumptive of service- connection" don't have to prove an association between their medical problems and military service.

LETTERS POLICY Letters to the editor discussing com- munity issues are encouraged. Letter writers should be aware that The Independent reserves the right to edit and/or condense letters for print. The paper also reserves the right not to pub- lish letters that are unsuitable or for which it might be held legally liable. Letters should contain the writer's rinted or typed name, signature, address and telephone number. Addresses and telephone numbers will not be published. Letter writers are asked to limit them- selves to one letter per month. Please keep letter brief, perferably not over 350 words, and to the point. AD vs. NEWS The Ortonville Independent policy in determining what is advertising and what is news is based on one simple test: If an individual business or organi- zation charges for admission to an event for an item or for a service, it will be con- sidered advertising. In other words, "If you charge, we charge." Advertising is the life-blood of a news- paper. Without it a newspaper would cease to exist. The money a paper receives for subscriptions and single paper sales is used to pay for the ink and paper used in producing the product. It no longer does so because of paper cost increases. It still covers the cost of ink and a small portion of the paper used. Advertising to a newspaper is like crops and livestock to farmers; meat and products to the grocer; dresses and coats to the soft-line merchant; and plows and tractors to the implement dealer. Without any of those items, the particular busi- ness WOLIId not be in business. ADS: We reserve the right to refuse any advertising without obligation to justify our decision. POLICIES: A News: Our goal is to report the news as fully and accurately as possible. The staff's opinions will appear only on the opinion page. A Editorials: Opinions published on this i page whether locally written or reprinted from other sources is intended to stimu- late thinking and discussion among our readers.
