The law now requires that VA obtain an annual income statement from veterans seeking reimbursement for travel to obtain treatment for nonservice - connected ailments. The VA has waived this requirement for claimants 65 years or older or those receiving disability compensation. Still eligible for full cost-of- travel reimbursement are veterans who have been awarded' compensation for service-connected disabilities. Those who do not have a service-connected disability may be reimbursed for no more than the actual cost of travel if VA determines that they are unable to afford the mode of transportation needed in their special circumstances. One whose medical condition would permit him to travel by public transportation, for example, might be expected to pay for his own travel, while a person with the same income might be reimbursed if special travel arrangements — such as an ambulance — were required. Ability to pay is judged on the basis of income in relation to the number of members in the family and the type of transportation needed. The current annual limits on income run from as low as Credit League meeting Feb. 9 Eunice Smith of the Feather River chapter, California Credit Union League, will speak for the "Employees Appreciation Night" of the Mendo-Lake chapter of the League Thursday at 7:30 p.m at the Broiler Steak House in Redwood Valley Additional information may be obtained from Ethel Hinds, 485-7028 $2800 for an individual with no dependents who could travel by public transportation, to as high as $11,999 for a veteran with more than six members in his family who requires transportation by ambulance. cellist, all have solid professional musical backgrounds. The need to expand the Tichman trio of clarinet, piano and cello to broaden the musical horizons of the performers and bring more delight to their audiences led to the formation of the Berkshire Chamber Players. As the name suggests the group was formed in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains, near the musical center of Tanglewood, and as a quartet has scored musical triumphs from Maine to California. Clarinetist Tichman is the founding and guiding force behind the formation of first the Tichman Trio and then the Berkshire Chamber Players . A native of Philadelphia, he received his musical education from the famed Peabody Conservatory and Julliard School of Music. While a student he met his wife, the former Ruth Budnevich, and they won Fullbright Fellowships and concertized together while doing research in Italy. They have three daughters: Nina, an award-winning concert pianist .now in Germany; Nadya, a promising violinist at the age of 16; and Homi, a 13-year-old cellist. Admission to Saturday's Ukiah Community Concert program is by membership and by guest card only. Guest tickets may be available at the door.
