This is the week to finish your project and then bask in your wellearned approval. (And if you like, you also can say "bah" to all those detractors.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The bold Bovine could find a new opportunity too intriguing to be ignored. But don't charge into it. Go slowly so you see how things develop as you get more involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might try to soften your stand on that important issue. A little more flexibility actually could get you what you're looking for. A new friend enters the picture midweek. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your inner voice is on the mark when it advises you to tackle that family problem now! The sooner you're able to come to terms with it, the better it will be for everyone. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Someone reveals important news about a longtime associate. But before you decide how to deal with this information, make sure it's reliable, and not simply self-serving. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Some intensive soulsearching early in the week can help you reach a decision by week's end that should please both you and the other person involved. Good luck. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) The possibility of a career change is intriguing. Learn more about what it can offer and what it cannot. Weigh everything carefully. And ask questions. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Work is your priority this week as you try to make up for lost time. Expect help from someone who cares about you. Things take a welcome turn by the weekend. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A health problem causes some anxiety early in the week. But prompt medical attention soon eases everyone's concerns. Enjoy an arts-filled weekend. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) As much as you might resent it, a changing situation could require you to adjust your plans accordingly. The good news: An associate agrees to cooperate. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) That old problem is finally resolved, just in time for you to take on a new workrelated project. This one could be the super door-opener you've been looking for. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The early part of the week presents some difficult hurdles. But once you get over them, you can start to focus on matters that are more important to you.

Tehachapi Valley Recreation Parks District is hosting The Great Egg Hunt and Chick Race Championship on Saturday, March 30, starting at 9 a.m. at West Park in downtown Tehachapi. “The Easter egg hunt has become more and more popular over the years,” said Sandy Chavez, Tehachapi Parks & Rec recreation coordinator. “We hide more than 2,000 eggs all over West Park and it’s organized chaos when we begin each hunt.” Several hundred children participated in last year’s event, said Chavez. “It’s a blast to see kids scurrying in every direction all over the lawns at West Park. It’s one of my favorite TVRPD events.” Chavez notes that children need to bring their own basket to gather eggs. Shasta Villalvazo’s son Ezekiel was two years old last year when he participated in the event for the first time. “He’s already excited to do it again this year,” says Villalvazo. Ezekiel found a golden ticket in one of his eggs that he was able to redeem for a gift basket. “It’s definitely a great family event,” said Villalvazo. “Everyone is very nice and it’s a positive atmosphere. It represents Tehachapi well.” Mary Moreno, a teacher with Farmworker’s Institute of Education and Leadership Development (F.I.E.L.D.), a charter program for 18 to 25 years olds to get their high school diploma, is bringing several F.I.E.L.D. students to assist at the event. Bryce Leishman will serve as the event MC and Brianne Hafer will help little ones collect their eggs. Moreno herself has been collecting donations for the event. Farmer John Eggs in Bakersfield has donated 50 chicks for the Chick Race Championships, which opens at 9 a.m.; the race starts at 10 a.m. Chicks can be purchased onsite for $20 to race side-by-side down an eight-foot track for the bragging rights of “The Fastest Chick in Tehachapi” and the winner’s purse. Lots of other activities are being offered: Children will be able decorate a picture frame with Kathy Hinkle from Picture Perfect.

He will be at the Treasure Trove with his portable forge and will do a live presentation of the process he uses for his creations. Schmidt is a remarkable artist who specializes in painting flowers and rocks but also does a number of other fun southwest and animal images. A developmen- tally delayed individual, Chelsea has found her vocation with her painting. Her work is fun and whimsical. Chelsea grows in skill and diversity with each new project. The Tehachapi Museum has three special displays ready for First Friday. One showcase features part of the collection of Dr. Terry Brady’s wooden boxes created by artists in his native Australia, from New Zealand and many from the US and Canada. Some are carved, others machined and turned. A new display in the family case will focus on the Beauford family, one of Tehachapi’s early families. Harry Beauford was a barber as early as 1909, a member of the orchestra and a Grand Master of the Masonic Lodge in 1916. His son Harry, Jr. was a pilot and the projectionist at the Beekay Theatre. Harry, Jr. is featured in a mural at the Hitching Post Theater that shows him preparing for takeoff for the first Air Mail sent from Tehachapi in 1938. In the Community Case will be a display of toys from days gone by.

The Weekender — Friday, March 29, 2013 7 Dana Hubbard brings another shade of blues to Fiddlers Crossing BY DEBORAH HAND CONTRIBUTING WRITER So Many Hard Water Problems So many Reasons For Culligan The Blues comes in numerous shades, and Fiddlers Crossing is presenting many of them this year. Dana Hubbard occupies one shade all by himself. He will be in concert at Fiddlers Crossing April 6, at 7 p.m. This will be his first appearance in Tehachapi. Hubbard is a master of the blues guitar. Using a slide on his little finger, he gets more sounds out of one guitar and two hands than seems humanly possible. Hubbard has won award after award in the blues genre. He has performed with or opened with some of the greats of blues, jazz and folk, including, Sam Bush, David Wilcox, Greg Allman, Etta James, David Lindley and Little Feat. Hubbard is a native Californian, born and raised on the Central Coast. He attended UC Santa Cruz only long enough to finish an elective course on country blues. Then, he hit the road and never looked back. He started the way many acoustic musicians start, by busking on the streets, in his case Berkeley and San Francisco.

DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have had heartburn for many years. I take Prilosec for it, and it works fine for me. My doctor scheduled me for a gastroscope exam. I haven't had one for quite a while. The doctor who did the scope called me and my family doctor to say that I had changes seen in the biopsy he took. He says I have Barrett's esophagus, which can turn into cancer. Naturally, this has me worried. Will you elaborate on Barrett's esophagus and what I have to look forward to? Neither of my doctors has suggested a change in medicines. Do you? -- T.M. ANSWER: Barrett's esophagus is a change in the kind of cells that line the lowermost part of the esophagus, the part that attaches to the stomach. That change brings with it a chance of further, cancer changes. The risk is quite small, about 0.5 percent per year. Barrett's esophagus happens to people who have GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, more popularly called heartburn. You take a medicine, Prilosec, that suppresses the production of stomach acid. Medicines that act similarly sometimes can retard the progression of these cell changes into cancer cells. They most definitely control heartburn. Barrett's also can happen to people who do not have GERD. The chance of cancer developing depends on a number of criteria. One is the kind of cells that have evolved. If they show low-grade changes, the likelihood of cancer is not as great as it would be if they show high-grade changes. The length of the area involved with these changes is another factor in determining the cancer risk. You must not have had signs that raise the risk for cancer, or the doctor would have recommended immediate treatment. About the only thing you need to do is comply with the suggested follow-up scope exams so the doctor can see if any procedures are needed to eradicate these new cells. You don't have to sit around and worry. You have not received a death sentence. The booklet on GERD (heartburn) explains this common disorder and its treatments.

Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada. with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: At a recent cocktail party, a nurse admonished me for chewing ice. She said that it indicates an iron deficiency. I get blood work done every six months. My doctor has never said anything about an iron deficiency or any other issue. I am 65 and in good health. -- C.H. ANSWER: The nurse was talking about pica. It's a craving for materials not considered foods, like ice, clay, starch and dirt, to mention a few. Sometimes it is an indication of iron deficiency, but far from always. In someone like you, who has lab tests done twice a year, you're not anemic and don't have pica. You do, however, have a habit that will ruin your teeth if you don't stop. Chewing on ice can cause microscopic fractures in tooth enamel, which can become larger fractures. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: As someone preparing for a liver biopsy, please discuss the procedure, recovery and possible side effects. -- R.J. ANSWER: Doctors perform a liver biopsy with a needle attached to a suction device that can capture a thin piece of the organ for microscopic examination. The needle is inserted through the skin over the liver. First the doctor cleans the skin with an antiseptic and often numbs it. The procedure takes less than a minute. You return home shortly thereafter. Side effects are rare. Bleeding is possible. So is infection. Neither happens frequently. You don't have to prepare yourself in any special way. DR.

Fish & Wildlife Can firearms be used to land halibut? Q&As from the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife BY CARRIE WILSON CONTRIBUTING WRITER Question: I have a question about safely bringing large halibut onboard. Because the Pacific halibut caught in Alaska are often over 100 pounds, deckhands use pistols or small shotguns to kill the fish before bringing them on board. This is to prevent the fish from causing damage or hurting anyone once on the deck. Would this method be legal to use in California ocean waters with large fish? Of course, the fish would already be "landed" by first being gaffed. Is it even legal to carry a pistol while fishing on a private boat near shore? (Timothy B., Morro Bay) Answer: Sport fisher- men may take halibut by hand, hook and line, spear fishing, spear, harpoon or bow and arrow (California Code of Regulations Title 14, sections 28.65, 28.90 and 28.95.) Firearms are not a legal method of take for halibut, so a gun may not be used to assist in taking or landing the fish. In some areas it may be legal to carry a pistol on a private boat but there are closures that prohibit the possession of any firearm on a boat along portions of the Monterey and San Luis Obispo county coastlines within the California Sea Otter Game Refuge. If considering carrying a pistol on your boat, you need to research local laws and ordinances within the jurisdictions you will be transiting on your fishing trip. Distance from hoop nets allowed? Question: How far can a fisherman be from his nets once the traps are in the water? 100 yards? 500 yards? (Dixon C.) Answer: There is no legal limit to the distance you can travel from hoop nets you have set in a recreational pursuit of lobster or crab. However, they must be checked - lifted to the surface - at least every two hours. PHOTO BY E. VILLAREAL Transporting a whitetailed doe deer mount into California Question: I am looking to add a mounted whitetail doe head to the family cabin but want to be sure Francisco J. Rivera set a new state and world record for California halibut on July 1, 2011 with this 67 lb 5 oz. fish. before buying it. It was legally taken and mounted in another state. From what I hear, its really old. I dont believe they are native to California but I want to be sure its legal to do before purchasing and transporting it here. (Kristi D.) Answer: Yes, it is legal in California for you to purchase the taxidermied head of either sex of a white tail deer. California Fish and Game law (Fish and Game Code, section 3039) only prohibits buying or selling any species of bird or mammal that occurs in the wild in California. We have only mule deer and black tail deer here. One thing you must do before importing it into California is to complete and submit the Declaration for Entry form available online at www.dfg.ca.gov/enforc ement/entrydeclaration.aspx. In addition, when shipping wildlife into Califor- nia, there are certain requirements regarding how to properly mark containers containing wildlife. Any package in which birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, or amphibians, or parts thereof, are offered for transportation to, or are transported or received for transportation by, a common carrier or his or her agent shall bear the name and address of the shipper and of the consignee and an accurate description of the numbers and kinds of birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, or amphibians contained therein clearly and conspicuously marked on the outside thereof. (FGC, section 2348) Whats required to catch and breed tarantulas? Question: I'm interested in catching some local tarantulas to try breeding them. I cant find anything obviously referring to either tarantulas or prohibitions on such things. Are there any licenses required? Are there any definite prohibitions against it or any issues pertaining to the different public lands (e.g. city, county, state, federal)? (S. Godfrey) Answer: The Fish and Game Code and its implementing regulations currently do not prohibit the take of spiders, but federal laws may apply to the take or breeding of tarantulas. You may want to consult the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regarding federal prohibitions, and be aware that some public lands (e.g. state and national parks, scientific reserves, etc.) have laws that prohibit the taking of any live animals. You need to check with the jurisdiction of the land on which you want to hunt tarantulas. CARRIE WILSON is a marine environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The Weekender — Friday, March 29, 2013 11 Home & Garden (Family Features) One of the best ways to get kids to eat healthier food is to let them make it themselves. And these snack recipes using Florida blueberries and strawberries are so good - and so easy - you may have a hard time getting the kids out of the kitchen. Strawberry-Yogurt Freezer Pops Yield: 10 servings • 1 pound Florida strawberries, hulled and chopped • 1/4 cup sugar • 1 lemon, juiced • 2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt • 10 freezer pop molds and sticks In blender or food processor add half of the strawberries, sugar and lemon juice. Puree ingredients until sugar is dissolved. Pour mixture into a small pitcher or container and add the rest of the chopped strawberries. Fill each freezer pop mold by alternating layers of strawberry mixture and yogurt. Insert handle or stick into each freezer pop and freeze at least 5 hours. To serve, run warm water over outside of molds until pops come out easily. If you don't have freezer pop molds, use small paper cups. Cover tops of cups with plastic wrap and poke the sticks through the plastic to keep them standing upright while in the freezer. Berry Snack Bars Yield: 20 bars Grown-Up Alert: Supervise younger children when chopping nuts and using the oven. "You can get really creative with strawberries and blueberries," said Justin Timineri, executive chef and culinary ambassador, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. "They can be tossed into salads or yogurt, marinated in teriyaki sauce and served with grilled meats, or turned into delicious snacks like these." Not only do they taste good, they're good for you. Blueberries are good for your eyes and memory, and they have antioxidants, which may prevent some types of cancer. Strawberries have vitamin C and fiber, which is good for your digestive system and helps you feel full. To get more berry-licious recipes like these, visit http://bit.ly/floridaberries.

Myers recommends these five strategies to create a low maintenance eco-friendly landscape this season: • Be Waterwise Save money on the water bill, time spent watering and this precious resource, water. Start by growing drought tolerant plants suited to your growing environment. Once established they will only need watering during extended dry spells. Mulch with shredded leaves, evergreen needles, woodchips, or other organic matter to conserve mois- ture, reduce weeds, and improve the soil as they decompose. Fertilize with a low nitrogen fertilizer, like Milorganite, that promotes slow steady growth instead of excessive greenery that requires more water. Plus, it won’t burn even during drought. Leaf mulch is a vital ingredient for a transformed garden. ing, and disposing of yard debris. And better yet, implementing this strategy will save money and time spent buying and transporting soil amendments, since it will be created right in the backyard. Start by leaving grass clippings on the lawn. The short clippings break down quickly, adding organic matter, nutrients and moisture to the soil. Grow trees suited to the growing conditions and available space. That means less pruning and fewer trimmings that will need to be managed. weeds like quack grass, annual weeds gone to seed, or invasive plants. Most compost piles are not hot enough to kill these pests. And do not add meat, dairy, or bones that can attract rodents. • Put rainwater to work all season long by using rain barrels to capture rainwater off your roof or directly from the sky. •Recycle Yard Waste in the Landscape Minimize the amount of yard waste produced, reuse what can be in other areas of the landscape and recycle the rest as compost. These are just a few strategies that will save time bagging, haul- •Make Compost at Home Recycle yard waste into compost. Put plant waste into a heap and let it rot. Yes, it really is that simple.

So it's not surprising that many of these parents haven't had time to hatch a long-term financial plan in case their kids need care after they're not around. Fortunately, many government programs and community resources are available to help relieve the financial burden of parenting special needs children. But eligibility criteria are complicated and the application process time-consuming. Plus, if you're not careful, you or well-meaning relatives could inadvertently disqualify your kids for future benefits by not structuring their inheritances correctly. Here's a brief overview of key government assistance programs: The Social Security Administration provides two types of disability coverage: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Income (SSDI). Rules and eligibility requirements differ between the two programs – and benefits differ for children and adults. In a nutshell, SSI is a needs-based, cash-assistance program for disabled people of any age in lowincome families with limited resources. Children qualify for SSI benefits if they meet certain strict criteria outlined in SSA Publication 05-11000 (www.ssa.gov/pubs/11000 .html). SSDI is a separate program funded by payroll deductions (part of FICA). Although children sometimes receive SSDI payments if their parents are disabled, their eligibility is based on their parents' disability status, not on their own. However, after turning 22, already disabled children may qualify for SSDI on their own if at least one parent qualifies for Social Security benefits. Eligibility rules and definitions for SSI and SSDI are complex. To see if your child qualifies, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213, or search the Disability and SSI tabs at www.ssa.gov. One particularly helpful resource is "Benefits for Children with Disabilities," SSA Publication No. 0510026. Many families inadvertently jeopardize their disabled child's eligibility for government-provided benefits by opening accounts in the child's name or designating them as beneficiaries. Unfortunately, federal law dictates that recipients of SSI, Medicaid and many state assistance programs will be disqualified if they have resources worth over $2,000. So, if Uncle Jerry leaves your daughter $10,000 in his will, she could lose her benefits. One good alternative is to create a special needs trust, whose assets can be used by its trustee to manage the finances and personal effects of a disabled person. Trusts are governed by state laws and should only be drafted by an attorney familiar with this area of law. Some parents name the trust as beneficiary of life insurance policies to ensure a source of funding if they die before their child. (Stay current on your premiums.) Other possible funding sources include cash, stocks and other investments, retirement plan death benefits, home sale proceeds and inheritances from other relatives and friends. Just make sure that the trust –not the child – is named beneficiary. Preparing a special needs trust can be expensive – possibly several thousand dollars, depending on your situation. But weigh that against the prospect of your child losing out on a lifetime of government-provided benefits because of an accidental inheritance – speaking of which, be sure to let any well-meaning relatives or friends know about the trust.

Check plants regularly throughout the growing season. It is easier to control a few insects than the hundreds that can develop in a week or two. And when problems arise, look for the most eco-friendly control. Start by removing small infestations by hand. Consider traps, barriers, and natural products if further control is needed. And as always be sure to read and follow label directions carefully. •Energy Wise Landscape Design Use landscape plantings to keep homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Homes will have a more comfortable temperature throughout the seasons and energy costs will be reduced. Plant trees on the east and west side of a house to shade windows in the summer and let the sun shine in and warm it up through the south-facing windows in winter. Shade air conditioners, so they run more efficiently and be sure to collect and use any water they produce for container gardens. Incorporate these changes into gardening routines and habits over time. Soon these and many more strategies that help save time and money while being kind to the environment will seem to occur automatically.
