I have to miss a lot of work to take care of my elderly mother and it's finan- cially stressing me Stretched Thin Dear Stretched, Caring for an elder parent can be challenging in many ways, but it can be especially difficult financially if you have to miss work or quit your job to provide care. Fortunately, there are a number of government pro- grams, tax breaks, and other tips that may be able to help you monetarily while you care for your mother. Here are some options to explore. State assistance: Most states have' programs that help low-income sen- iors pay for in-home care services, including paying family members for care. These programs - which go by various names like "cash and coun- seling" or "consumer-directed"- vary greatly depending on where you live and in some states, on wh,+th,~r ,~,r morn is on Medicaid. To find out what's available in your state, contact your local Medicaid office. Veterans benefits: Veterans who need assistance with daily living ac- tivities can enroll in the Veteran-Di- rected Care program. This program, available through VA Medical Cen- ters in 40 states, as well as in Wash- ington, D.C and Puerto Rico, provides as much as $2,000 a month, which can be used to pay family members for home care. Visit the "Home and Community Based Serv- ices" section at for information. Also available to wartime veter- ans and their surviving spouses is a benefit called Aid and Attendance, which helps pay for in-home care, as well as assisted living and nursing home care. This benefit can also be used to pay family caregivers. To be eligible your mother must need as- sistance with daily living activities Ill.* b~,thing, dressins or goins to tho bathroom.

Schwartzenberger asks commissioners to pay legal fees By Neal A. Shipman Farmer Editor WATFORD CITY Gary Schwartzenberger, McKenzie, County sheriff, asked the McKenz:iell County commissioners last month to. pay the $3,050 in legal fees that he incurred as part of his defense before the North Dakota Supreme Court against charges brought against him "There is no mention in this rule of attor- ney fees unless the appeal is deemed frivo- lous." Chas Neff, McKenzie County State's Attorney Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem. Stenehjem's recommendation was based upon then-McKenzie County by the county.

Ac- cording to court documents, in April of 2015, the county requested Schwartzenberger to reimburse the county for those expenditures which he did in June of 2015. But still, according to Schwartzenberger, the county con- tinued to push for the removal of him from office through a methodical and slanderous attack. "They were proven wrong," states Schwartzenberger, which is why he believes that he is owed his legal ex- penses. In November of 2016, then-North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple, sus- berger from the office of sheriff of McKenzie County based on the evi- dence presented at the removal hear- ing. It was also Klein's recommendation that all allegations of the complaint for removal against him be dismissed, that his suspension be terminated and that he be returned to perform the duties of the office to which he was elected. On Aug. 30, 2017, the North Dakota Supreme Court overturned a ruling by Northwest District Judge David Reich which denied a writ of prohibition against the McKenzie County Board of County Commis- sioners. In a unanimous 5-0 decision by the Supreme Court, Justice Lisa McEvers wrote, "We conclude the district court misapplied our law in determining the authority of the Golden Valley News P.O.

Central Ave Beach. The public is invited! Board and Sheriff Schwartzenberger. We therefore conclude the court abused its discretion in denying the writ of prohibition." Chas Neff, McKenzie County State's Attorney, told the commis- sioners on Tuesday that according to the judgement, because the decision was reversed, Schwartzenberger is entitled to specific costs under Rule 39 of the North Dakota Rules of Ap- pellate Procedure. Those eligible costs include the preparation and transmission of the record; the tram script, if necessary, to determi~~ the appeal; premiums paid for bond to preserve rights in the appdh~,~ ~nd the fees for filing a notice of an appeal. "There is no mention in this rule of attorney fees unless the appeal is deemed frivolous," stated Neff. "That is consistent with North Dakota law that says parties bear their own attorney fees." According to Neff, the fees that were submitted for the beginning preparation for the Supreme Court on June 21, a telephone conference and attending a hearing to prepare for the Supreme Court hearing, and a previ- ous balance of $1,265. "Legally those four items under the rule is what this board is required to pay," stated Neff. "Policywise, if the board wants to pay more than that, they are certainly entitled to do so it's a policy decision." Following last week's request by the county commission, Schwartzen- berger indicated that he may be pur- suing civil action against the commissioners to collect his legal fees. "My only recourse is to take civil action,against them individually," stated Schwwtzenberger. "It is not right for the taxpayers to pay these costs. I intend to seek legal advise on a civil action."
