The U.S. Department of Agriculture is requiring acreage reductions of zero percent for wheat, oats, barley and field corn. Farmers who meet acreage reduc- tion and other program require- ments will be eligible for price support loans and deficiency pay- ments. "Producers may request 50 percent of the estimated total defic- iency payments when they sign up for the 1994 programs," Loop said. The payments will be issued in cash and will be limited to the farmer's intended program acreage. The total estimated rates are 85 cents per bushel for wheat, 40 cents for corn, 52 cents for barley, with no projected payment for oats. Loop also said that the 1994 programs have flexible planting features, the same as in 1993. Up to 25 percent of the crop acreage base or flex acres may be planted to any program crop, any oilseed, industrial or experi- mental crop designated by USDA.

The medical term for ringing in the ears is "tinnitus." The ringing is thought to occur as a result of damage to the microscopic hair- like cells in the inner ear. The brain interprets this damage as one of several different sounds. The sound often is described as hissing, buzz- ing, clicking, blowing, or chirp- ing. Causes of ringing in the ears include exposure to very loud noises; physical damage such as a concussion or whiplash; teeth grinding; hyperthyroidism; ane- mia; and Meniere's disease. Medi- cines that can cause or worsen tinnitus include aspirin, quinine, and certain antibiotics. The ring- ing may be worse when one has lost sleep, is tired, smokes, drinks alcohol excessively, drinks caf- feinated beverages, or is under a lot of stress. Tinnitus can occur at any age but is more common among older people. Connie Rumley recently attended ~r~ all-day seminar in Salem. It was given by Dermic Wheeler, a from Coos Bay. The subjects were the new Federal and of Oregon changes. Rumiey is an employee of Gratia Robertson, CPA in Sheridan. =rin receives promotion I Anthony J.

Unfortunately, by the time most people recognize the con- tinual ringing of tinnitus, damage to ear hair cells may be permanent. If damage has occurred already, there are a few things you can do. These include relaxing and getting plenty of rest, reducing alcohol consumption, quitting smoking, and drinking caffeine-free bever- ages. Some persons get relief fror~ masking devices. If, for example, the ringing is worse at bedtime, music or low-level radio static may cover the sound. HOME TOWN DRUGS 103 E.
