Over the last couple of weeks I have received phone calls, emails, and had conversations with individuals about the Bipartisan Budget Deal of 2013 passed by Congress earlier this month.  Several have commented to me that there is a provision within this bill that affects our Military and Veteran Community.  Others have questioned how this will affect their VA education benefits.


In the interest of informing the OSU Community and outside community members who support our Student Veterans, I have researched several websites looking for the language of the bill.  Please understand my reporting on this information does not constitute my office agreeing or disagreeing with any or all of the provision of the bill.  In addition, please be advised the bill has not been signed by President Obama.  Additionally, other bills are in process that could change the outcome of this bill.  In my research, I was not able to find a full text of the bill.  However, I was able to find this information.


According to each of the websites listed below the following language is in the bill.


–        American troops who have retired and are under the age of 62 would have cost-of-living(COLA) adjustments cut by 1% each year under the new deal.


In addition, according to the websites this cut is one of many intended to reduce the overall deficient by 23 Billion over the next 10 years.


Based upon this language many have asked me how this could affect their VA Education Benefits.  At this point, it appears there is not language that will change or stop VA education benefits.  However, if that changes I will be glad to report out on those changes as they are made public.


I hope this help answers some of the questions some of you may had surrounding the Bi-Partisan Budget Deal of 2013 and VA education benefits.


Thank you and have a great day.

The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests will soon be filling a permanent position for a Procurement Technician at the Supervisor’s Office with a duty station of Springerville, Arizona. This position offers a challenging career opportunity for an individual seeking experience on a busy and complex forest.

The Apache and the Sitgreaves National Forests were administratively combined in 1974 and are now managed as one unit from the Forest Supervisor’s Office. The forest is 2,110,000 acres in size and is located in east-central Arizona along the Mogollon Rim and the White Mountains. The forest covers portions of Coconino, Navajo, Apache, and Greenlee counties; borders the Coconino, Tonto, and Gila National Forests; and borders the White Mountain Apache and San Carlos Indian Reservations.

The Apache-Sitgreaves has 34 lakes and reservoirs and more than 1080 miles of perennial rivers and streams – more than can be found in any other Arizona National Forest. The White Mountains contain the headwaters of several Arizona Rivers including the Black, the Little Colorado, and the San Francisco. The forest ranges in elevation from 3500 feet near Clifton to nearly 11,500 feet on Mount Baldy. The congressionally proclaimed Mount Baldy, Escudilla, and Bear Wallow wilderness areas and the Blue Range Primitive Area make the forest one of America’s premier backcountry Forests.

The management concerns on the Apache-Sitgreaves include the health and restoration of the forest, watersheds, and ecosystems, and providing a sustainable recreation program.  Over one-quarter of the forest (538,000 acres) was burned by the 2011 Wallow Fire. The highest priority work is associated with rehabilitation of the burned area, reducing the dangers associated with wildfire in the urban interface, forest restoration, and Forest Plan Revision implementation (Forest Plan scheduled to be completed in mid-2014). There will be continued opportunities to work with forest leadership as they incorporate restoration and recovery into the forest-wide program of work.

There are a total of 96 active allotments covering the majority of the forest. Fish and wildlife habitats in and around allotments for federally-listed species include Mexican spotted owl, Mexican wolf, Southwestern willow flycatcher, Chiricahua leopard frog, and numerous fish species including the Apache trout, Gila trout and loach minnow.


Springerville is located in East-Central Arizona on U.S. 60 and State Highways 180-191, approximately 220 miles Northeast of Phoenix and sits at an elevation of 7,000 feet. It was originally established in 1879. Combined with a mild climate and proximity to a wealth of outdoor recreation year round, ranging from hunting and fishing to winter skiing, Springerville is a haven for recreational enthusiasts in Arizona and New Mexico.  The towns of Springerville and Eagar are contiguous and make up the area referred to as Round Valley. A variety of industries shape the economic profile. In the early days, cattle and sheep ranching were principal economic activities, but these have gradually been augmented by tourism, agriculture, construction, forestry, and retail sales in support of the 6,000 local residents.

Springerville and Eagar offer a range of facilities to their residents, including a library, hospital, museum, and numerous athletic facilities as well as a campus for Northland Pioneer College. Sunrise Ski area, located on the White Mountain Apache Reservation, is 30 minutes away. Springerville is also home to Casa Malpais, a nationally recognized archeological ruin.  There are several local restaurants offering a variety of food and drink.  Recently opened is the XA Saloon and Dance Hall, a traditional country western saloon frequented by John Wayne in older times.

There are two supermarkets and a variety of convenience stores located in the Round Valley.  There is also one drug store, one Alco (mini Wal-Mart style) store, automotive parts stores and several specialty stores located in the Round Valley area. Shopping in Pinetop-Lakeside and Show Low 45 miles away includes Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Home Depot, larger grocery stores, clothing and shoe stores, and many other specialty stores.  There are two banks located in Eagar and one bank in Springerville.  There are seven motels ranging from Best Western to local owned.
