he Umpqua Valley and its surroundingsoffer unrivaled opportunities for get-ting outside and reveling in the openair.County residents can find plenty to do out-side throughout the year. But with springnearly a week old, our thoughts naturallyturn to leaving home and hearth and explor-ing the world beyond our doorsteps.We asked four semiregular contributors toThe News-Review’s Outdoors page to pro-vide their recommendations on outdoorexploration. The four are Jerry Chartier of Roseburg, 63; R.J. Guyer of Roseburg, 49;Carol Lovegren Miller of Oakland, 53; andRichard O’Neill of Winston, 55.Here are their responses, edited for spaceand clarity.
What’s your favorite way to explore the great outdoors?
CHARTIER
: My passion is hunting. I’ve hunt-ed the same areas for 40 years. I know it’s not theelk I seek, it’s the memories — the wind whisper-ing across the swaying branches, the memories of those who walked with me through the years andthose who walk with me now. Sometimes, whenI’m alone high on a ridge and I look across thebreathtaking vistas, I wonder:Is it the elk I’mseeking to find, or am I looking for myself?
GUYER
: My favorite is hiking. I also enjoycamping, biking and climbing.
MILLER
: You are most likely to find me hiking,although in the winter, when I have the opportu-nity, I cross-country ski. The highlight of our yearis the time we spend backpacking in the highcountry. We camp year-round, often using ourhorses to horse pack. When I need a quick out-door fix, I hop on my bicycle and ride back roadswith my husband.
O’NEILL
: Number-one favorite pastime is hik-ing. Mrs. O’Neill prefers cycling over hiking, so Ido the occasional bike ride with her. Part of thehiking package, or auxiliary activities, are back-packing, camping and snowshoeing.

Until recently, therewas no practicalway to identify deadregions of hear-ing cells in the ear.However, a newBritish-developed pro-cedure using standardtest equipment nowallows for identifica-tion of dead hearingcell regions. The studysuggests that thepresence or absenceof dead regions mayhave serious implica-tions in the fitting ofhearing aids.This research revealsthat amplifying deadcells is a mistakewhich will result inpoorer speech under-standing in noise. A new type of digi-tally programmablemicrocircuit is nowbeing released fromStarkey—the worldleader in nanoSci-encetechnology—thatcan be programmedto bypass the deadcells. As a result, thepatient’s usable hearingcells receive amplifica-tion, thereby improvingspeech understanding innoise.“We are employing a likemethod in our diagnos-tic sound booths usinga sound field speechin noise procedure,”said Linda Knisley of All American Hearing. “Thistest simulates hearing ina noisy crowd. We areable to determine maxi-mum speech understand-ing by frequency shapingthis new hearing aid.”The results have beenphenomenal. For the firsttime, a patient is able toactually realize the exactpercentage of speechunderstanding improve-ment in noisy listeningenvironments.These new productscome in all shell sizes,including the smallestdigital models. During itsrelease, Starkey is offer-ing this new frequencyshaping hearing instru-ment on a 30 day satis-faction trial.Call All American Hearingfor a no-obligationappointment.
