IRS District Director Carolyn Leonard explained that individuals who doubt the validity of a tele- phone call should contact the IRS Inspection Office at (503) 326- 2787. Leonard said that occasionally persons posing as IRS employees attempt to harass taxpayers or col- lect money for what the imposter claims are unpaid taxes. She offered the following tips to avoid being taken in by a bogus IRS agent: Normally, your first IRS contact for an audit or tax collection is by mail. If you fail to respond to the letter, an agent may call or visit you. Normally the IRS prefers pay- ment by check or money order made payable to the "Internal Revenue Service." (Note: do not abbreviate - I-R-S, spell out the words.) If the IRS needs to audit you, you will be asked to discuss your tax situation at an office.

At last week's Yamhill County Grey Panthers mee- ting, nine seniors received some disheartening news that could dras- tically effect programs for seniors and the disabled. Randy Poppen, assistant director of the Mid-Willamette Valley Senior Services Agency, who spoke at the meeting said, "It's kind of gloomy news." "Not only seniors will be affected, but an even all across-the- board cut for all services is inevita- ble," Poppen predicted. The list of major proposed cuts in services for seniors and the disabled includes the following: In addition to the proposed reductions in SDSD (Senior and Disabled Services Division), the "medically needy" program has been proposed for elimination. This program provides a "safety net" for clients that lack sufficient income to pay the full costs of their medical care. The OPI (Oregon Project Inde- pendence) Program: the state pro- poses to begin a program of recover- ing OPI costs from the estates of recipients. According to Poppen, this could result in a cut of half its clients. The program has already been cut by 43 percent, about 1,600 cases. SDSD has developed a "survi- vability index" that is intended to determine what clients are least likely to survive without their ser- vices. This individual budget faces a $17.8 million dollar reduction. If this occurs, despite the demand for services increasing due to more seniors living today and requiring those services, the number of people served will decrease. It has been proposed that many of the "least impaired seniors" (requiring minimum amount of care), are the least costly to main- tain and, therefore, the most likely to be cut. SDSD services include "in home help" that is given to seniors who require assistance at home to main- tain an independent living. In addi- tion to cuts in services, there will most likely be cuts in SDSD staff. SDSD proposes to add one "risk intervention worker" for every 100 seniors that were terminated from this state-funded program. These case workers will assist seniors, who no longer qualify for state- funded services, in locating local community resources and services to help out with seniors' needs. Oregon is proposing a reduction of financial assistance for people in nursing homes. The state is propos- ing to change the requirements of f'mancial eligibility. The new requirements entail providing no financial assistance to seniors that make more than $850 per month. Currently, if seniors in nursing homes can't financially afford the full cost of a nursing home stay, the state will assist the individual, so long as the individual's income doesn't exce $1221 per month. ,/ t l, ,[, [ ! ,:, "'!q,i!

This could effect 1,600 seniors statewide. Six mental health projects, including the one currently operated by SSA (Senior Services Adminis- tration) for seniors, will be termi- nated as of June 30. This will save the state approximately $200,000. The nursing home ombudsman program, which coordinates citizen- trained volunteers going out into the community and nursing homes to ensure that seniors are getting proper care and assisting with their needs, will be cut by 50 percent and the program's activities will be concentrated only in the Willamette Valley corridor between Portland and Eugene. Because Yamhill County is considered out of this region, this service will be entirely cut. i Lilly Miller Rapid Green Weed and Feed 20-2-5 20 lb.; kills dandelions and other broadleafed weeds Greens up lawns. #170272 Reg.: $10.99 Sale ... s6- Lilly Miller Superior Type Spray Oil Control over-wintering insects on fruit trees and deciduous ornamentals. 1 qt; #170136 Reg.: $6.49 Sale ... s4- Sale ends March 5, 1991 WEST VALLEY FARMERS 342 S.
