Figuring of SSI Payments Changed Starting this month, the way supplemental security income (SSI) payments are figured is changed, a Social Security spokesperson said recently. Under the old law, the amount of the SSI payment due a person was figured on the basis of calendar quar- ters, 3-month periods start- ing January, April, July, and September. The person's total income for the quarter was totaled and averaged and the SSI payment deter- mined accordingly. Sometimes, the represen- tative said, this caused an unfair burden for a person whose income changed late in a calendar quarter. The changed income counted for all 3 months of the quarter and as a result, the person had an overpayment which had to be repaid or deducted from future payments. Starting this month under the new law, SS! payments will be figured on a person's past month's income and resources. That month will be 2 months before the pay- ment month, For example, the income a person had in February will be used to figure how much he or she is due for April. March income will count for May's pay- ment, and so on. Thin will help reduce the number of overpayments that have occurred in the past. But, the spokesperson said, it is even more impor- tant that people receiving SSI payments make prompt reports of any change in their income, resources, liv- ing arrangements, or dis- ability status. People should also remember that any change in income will result in their SS! payment being affected 2 months later and budget their funds accor- dingly. SSI is a Federal program that provides a basic cash in- come for people in need who are 65 or older or blind or disabled. Although SSI is ad- ministered by Social Security, funds for the pay- ments come from Federal general revenues, not Social Security taxes. More information about SSI reporting and payments can be obtained at any Social Security office. The address and telephone number of the nearest Social Security office can be found in the telephone directory. Q. I have been collecting Social Security disability benefits for 9 years. In a few months, i'11 be 65. Should I file an application for retirement benefits? A. No. If you are receiving checks as a disabled worker, your disability benefits will automatically be changed to retirement benefits when you reach 65. If you are get- ting checks as a disabled worker, disabled widow or widower, you will get in- structions when you reach 65 because your rights and responsibilities will be some- what different than they are now. Paradise Lake Adds Santa Claus Paradise Lake Family Ent- ertainment Park has added a 24-foot Santa Claus to its sel- ection of new rides and att- ractions for the 1982 season The mammoth reinforced fib- erglass structure will be er- ected near the entrance to Santa's Village, a Christmas themed area of the large Cam- bridge, Ohio amusement park. Paradise Lake Owner Phil- lip S. Fry said he purchased the Santa Claus from Joe Kohler, owner of Kohler's Florist and Greenhouse in the Whitehall section of Pittsburgh, PA. Ko- hler had used the Santa as a promotional tool for the past 11 Christmas seasons, but had to put old St. Nick on the market due to lack of storage space. The Santa's Village section of Paradise Lake contains seven small buildings: a Tavern, Ba-, ke Shop, Ornament Shop, Tack Shop, Beauty Shop, Antique Shop and Carpenter Shop, each with a custom-made animated display of elves at vork. Santa Claus will become the third large popu- late Paradise Lake. He joins a 23- foot cowboy which stands at the entrance to the themed area Western Paradise, and a 23- foot Mother Goose located near the entrance to Children's Par- adise. Mother Goose is equi- pped with an intercom system that allows her to speak to children individually. Fry said' Santa Claus will have the same' capability sometime during the 1982 season. Santa, however, is only one of the new attractions slated for the 1982 season. In addition to improvements made to the ex- isting three themed areas, Par- adise Lake will open a new 25-acre area called Internat- ional Paradise which, will fea- ture an 82-foot giant ferris wheel, a log flume, and many other rides, games and attra- ctions. As a special incentive for the park's second season, Parad- ise Lake will present a special" Slide Into Summer" promotion scheduled for the first two weekends of operation ( May 15 - 16 and May 22 - 23). Dur- ing the " Slide Into Summer " promotion, all Paradise Lake guests will be dmitted to the park for $4.50 -- half the reg- ular pay-one-price admission. Outstanding entertainment and special events will compliment the over 35 rides and attrac- tions at Paradise Lake during the " Slide Into Summer" weekends. Paradise Lake's summer schedule of all Thursdays, Fri- days, Saturdays, Sundays and Monday holidays begins May 28 and extends through Labor Day The park, locatedat exit 193 of Interstate 70, 15 miles east of Cambridge, will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. during each day of operation.

Bears Increasing West Virginia's bear hunters were extremely successful du- ring 1981, according to the Wildlife Resources Division. The recorded harvest of 80 bears was the fourth highest yearly total since the division began compiling records in 1951. Gun hunters bagged 75 bears during the 3-week gun season, and bow hunters killed an additional five bears during the 1981 bow season. Last year's kill was surpassed otily by a, total of 83 in 1965, 87 in 1976, and 98 in 1978. , The addition of 22 reported nonseasonal bear kills brought .the total known mortality of J bears for 1981 to 102. This total i mortality figure has only been exceeded in two other years: lO8 in 1976 and 131 in 1978. Wildlife biologists believe that West Virginia's bear population is growing and that the legal harvest will exceed the 1978 record for total bear mortality within three years. They also estimate that it will be large enough to support a legal annual kill of 150 bears within the next five years. .......... i -i i ;.z 00.1People Places .....

Baber Extension Agent - .GARDEN DISEASES -- All vegetables are subject to dis- eases. Home vegetable garden- ers may have only one or two different diseases to contend with during the growing seas- on, or they may encounter several dozen different diseas- es. A number of practices are required to keep diseases in check. The careful selection of seeds and plants is extremely important. Select only varieties )f plants recommended for West Virginia. Many varieties are now bred [or resistance to disease; oh- )use these whenever possible. When purchasing plants, look for vigorous seedlings free of diseases and insects. If space permits', plan and follow a crop rotation program. To avoid diseases that may persist in the ground or in crop wastes, you should avoid pl- anting the same or closely related crops in the same area of the garden for three years or more. Weed and insect control are essential parts of good garden - keeping. Weeds may harbor, insects pests and disease - causing organisms. Insects and mites often transmit disease. Strict sanitation is another factor in disease prevention, says Dr. John F. Baniecki, WVU Extension plant patholog- i est. All diseased plants or parts I of plants should be collected I and burned as soon as the disease symptoms are noticed. This is particularly important with virus - infected plants. In  autumn, plow under or remove to the compost heap all clean plant debris. For clean, disease - free plants, it is usually necessary to apply fungicides regularly. Most fungicides are protect- ants, not cures. They must be applied to the plant before the disease - producing organisms appear. Regular fungicide treat- ments are necessary when con- ditions such as prolonged ra- iny spells or hot, humid weath- er favor development of dis- ease. Most fungicides break down rapidly and are ineffec- tive after one or two weeks. It is best to repeat fungicides at 7 - to 14 - day intervals for opt- imum control of many disea- ses.
