fanners and ranchers for the month

The decision has been made by
the State Food and Agriculture Coun
cil to co-locate our present offices in
Madras and Prineville to Redmond.
Our office will keep you posted of
the opening date for our new Service
Center location in Redmond. Until
then, the Prineville and Madras of
fices will remain open for service.
Report Farm Changes
Farm operators and owners are
reminded to report any farm changes
to this office as soon as possible.
This includes all land changes such
as buying, selling, leasing or share
cropping. Producers must submit
proof of purchases or lease agree
ments for newly acquired land.
Accessibility to Disable Persons

modations are necessary, please con

nation" and "actively engaged" de
terminations have been made by the
county committee. For this purpose,
all producers are required to submit a
farm operating plan on form CCC
502 prior to receiving payments.
Statutory provisions require that en
tities earning payment provide the
names, addresses and ID numbers of
their members. These forms are sub
ject to spot-check, which would re
quire documentation to be submitted
to justify all certifications made.
Loans for Farms
FSA lends money and provides
credit counseling and supervision to
eligible applicants who operate fam
ily sized farms. Several types of loan
programs are available. Under the
Guaranteed Loan Program, FSA
guarantees loans made by conven
tional agricultural lenders for up to
95 percent of the principal. Farmers
interested in Guaranteed Loans ap
ply directly with a conventional
lender, who then arranges for the
FSA Guarantee. Direct Loans, which
are made and serviced by FSA are
available to those unable to qualify
for either a conventional loan or an
FSA guaranteed loan. Additional in
formation on loan eligibility, fund
ing or application processes may be
obtained by contacting this office.
Direct Deposit
The debt collection act of 1996

after January 1, 1999 shall be made
by electronic transfer (Direct De
posit). Currently, any producer or
vendor who first becomes eligible
for a federal payment after July 25,
1996 is required to receive that pay
ment by means of direct deposit. Pro
ducers will be required to complete
form SF-1 199A or furnish a voided
check to authorize the direct deposit.
Producers are reminded that if you
have a change in your financial insti
tution or account number to notify
this office as soon as possible.

To the editor,
Just a few short words for those of
you Agency District voters. In the
event you were not in attendance at
the Tribal Council elections, you still
have the advantage to do a write in
candidate ballot. The number was
few, and it is understandable why the
tribal members do not wish to par
ticipate in this affair, the issue was
rather obvious and the control of the
meeting was lapsed. It would seem
that a nominee can not close the floor
to nominee to nominee elections, but
it was approved. Note-no one from
Vital Statistics caught this. Also,
because there is lack of copies avail
able. Can an individual who is
adopted into the tribe run for tribal
council? A copy of this in the bylaws
available to anyone?
! When voting, do a thorough over
view of what the candidates have
demonstrated over the years, out
burst of anger, impartial, not enforc
ing codes, nepotism. ...is there a need
to continue? Not what is demon
strated these past couple of weeks.
Educated individuals, it has been
demonstrated what an educated per
son has done for our tribe.. .filled
theirown bank account. A traditional
individual, those who hide or use
their religion when the issue at hand
is avoided.
Perhaps not so bleak, was indi
viduals in our past tribal council,
Christine Tom, Harold Culpus, Chief
Simtustus, Chief Kalama. Individu
als who truly worked for the better of
the tribe, not just words to make
noise.
Please do your tribal membership
duty and vote. Most of all if the
candidate don't seem like they can
do the job, write in you best choice.
Sincerely,
Lucy Suppah
Tribal Member

Residential Treatment Program
(RTP)
This is a 28 day inpatient
The Outpatient Treatment
Program is a continuing care
component of treatment. Veterans
enter this program following
completion of CARS Residential
Treatment Program or another
residential treatmentprogram. Each
veteran has an assigned counselor
who meets individually to plan and
coordinate recovery plans. In
addition to attending weekly
outpatient group sessions for a year,
specialty educational groups in
Assertiveness, Stress Management
and Relapse Prevention are also an
integral part of this component of
treatment.
Veterans involved in the
Outpatient Program are expected to
attend weekly Alcoholic
Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous
or other approved abstinence
oriented support groups during the
initial phase of the program in order
to establish a peer group of
recovering individuals.
The Family Program welcomes
significant people in the veteran's
life to obtain guidance and support
concurrent with their veteran's
recovery.
Antabuse, and alcohol
antagonist, may be prescribed as an
adjunct to treatment at the veteran's
request while(s)he is actively
involved in treatment.
Halfway Houses
Veterans who complete the
Residential Treatment Program and
who have demonstrated a clinical
need foran extended abstinent living
situation while participating in
outpatient care may enter a
community-based halfway house
with VA support up to 60 days; or
may enter a VA.

program include support for continued

ways to address the special needs of
this population.

impact of chemical dependency on
those in contact with the dependent
person as well as the family's role in
the recovery process. Therefore an

families and friends of veterans who
participate in our programs.
Such services include:

Apology given
To the tribe:
I would like to apologize to the
community of W'arm Springs and the
Culture and Heritage Language Pro
gram staff for the damage I caused
during last summer of 1997. 1 never
realized all the work that was in
volved preserving our Indian Lan
guage. I feel really bad because my
grandma Nina Rowe started the In
dian and Culture Language program.
She told me how important saving
our Indian Language is so we can
continue learning our language.
All of our customs are in Indian,
our Indian Language. If we do not
learn our Indian Language it will be
hard to learn our customs and tradi
tions and our Indian Life.
Tins will never happen again, I
learned my lesson.

Please return photo
To the editor,
I submitted two photos of my sis
ter (Lana) and daughter (Reina) to
Spilyay Tymoo for publication in the
last issue. I recently returned to re
trieve these photos only to learn that
one photo was stolen (almost imme
diately). This was a special one-of-a-kind
photo, taken by a professional
photographer at the Pendleton
Roundup years ago.
This is not the first time our fam
ily had photos stolen from the Spilyay
Tymoo office, which prompted me
to write. Thief, I'm trying not to
think of you as sick or twisted-just
please, please, PLEASE return my
photo....anonymously if you wish,
or, I can make you a copy....just
please return my (original) photo. I
know the Spilyay Tymoo staff feels
badly about this loss, I just wish I
would have been notified when they
knew this incident occurred.
