Tehachapi Blvd. • 822-0626 M-F 10-6, Sat 10-5 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You've set a fast pace for yourself. But as you approach your goal, you might want to slow down a bit in order to take time to reassess your situation and make changes while you can. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A family matter might again require your reassuring touch. Handle it, as always, with kindness and fairness, even if some of your kin prove to be especially difficult. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Patience continues to be a virtue for the Divine Bovine. So as eager as you might be to get things moving, remember that time is on your side. Make good use of it. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your ability to tackle even the most intricate details of a project is likely to impress some very important people. A relative shares news later this week. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) There's a wee bit of uncertainty in the early part of the week. But things clear up as more facts come to light. Spend quality time this weekend with family and friends. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) The Archer's aim might be focused on the big picture this week, but don't overlook checking for those details you might have missed. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An old friend's return could open new possibilities for both of you. But don't let yourself be rushed into anything. There could be some factors you haven't yet explored. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might feel awkward asking for assistance, but who would refuse the charming Goat's request? Do it, then go ahead and enjoy a musical weekend. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This week offers a challenge you're raring to take on. And while eager to get started, do so slowly so that you can focus those sharp Cat's Eyes on every detail. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Pour some cold water on that simmering misunderstanding before it boils over. The sooner things settle, the sooner you can move ahead with your plans. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Put your skepticism aside and listen to advice from colleagues who've been where you are now. What they say could be helpful as you get closer to a decision. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You're in a highly productive period, which you feel can go on forever. But you could be courting exhaustion. Take time out to relax and restore your energies.

A high school senior, Anna has been homeschooled her entire life. She has participated in many ensembles, but is currently a member of the Calvary Bible Church orchestra and the Bakersfield Youth Symphony. “I consider music one of God's most glorious creations,” McCoy said. “And I marvel that God has enabled me to serve and honor Him through it.” "[Anna is] a really good cellist," concertmaster Gayel Pitchford PHOTO BY DAVID SCHOENBERG This May 19 concert, to be performed by the Tehachapi Symphony Orchestra, at Country Oaks Baptist Church, 20915 Schout Rd., will again be conducted by David Newby.

Together, the chorus and orchestra will perform Verdi’s “Va, Pensiero,” and “Libiamo,” as well as Wagner’s “Pilgrims’ Chorus.” “The year 2013 commemorates the 200th anniversary of Verdi’s death and Wagner’s birth,” Kelly said. “In their honor, the Tehachapi Symphonic Chorus will combine with the Antelope Valley Master Chorale and Concert Choir to perform three opera choruses. After the intermission will be a drawing for the yearly fundraiser. Tickets may be purchased from any Tehachapi Symphony member, board member or Tehachapi Symphonic Chorus member.

Admission is always free to the community.

He also spoke highly of his male lead, Sgt. Paprika, played by 11thgrader Alexzander Chappell, describing him as “able to [portray] a large range of emotions.” The play follows Sgt. Paprika, the owner of the Penny Lane Hotel, who despises the Beatles and tries to keep anyone from knowing that the Fab Four slept there. However, some pesky teenagers leak his secret and the next thing he knows, a fan club descends upon the hotel. When precious memorabilia are stolen, Johnny B. Goode arrives at the hotel to deduce who has made off with the valuables. Tickets cost $5 for general admission and $3 with an ASB card. All proceeds go to assist drama students with producing future performances. “The students have worked very hard on the play,” THS Theater Arts Instructor Lara Crowe said. “They are eager to demonstrate all they ...when you bring her out for food and drinks that are so tasty she will know you've hit it out of the park!

Take advantage of our SPECIAL OFFER visit us at: www.TehachapiWellness.com “When I first came to Sequoia Wellness I had numbness in my right arm, migraines, tension headaches, neck and back pain. I thought that I would have to have surgery on my neck to relieve the pain. I’m happy to say I rarely have any headaches, I have no more right arm numbness, and I have an overall better feeling in my body. I can do more activities, this has truly been a wonderful experience! I can’t thank Dr. Seeley enough.” - Teresa Stadig Tehachapi, CA Health & Fitness May is Stroke Awareness Month Independent Living Center of Kern County’s System Change Department invites the public to attend a Team Advocacy meeting on Wednesday, May 15 from 2 to 3 p.m., at the Center, 5251 Office Park Drive 200, in Bakersfield. Special guest Sandra Hegland, CEO of HealthSouth, will present information about the many symptoms of stroke which may appear as much as three or six months or a year after an initial incident. Systems Change Advocate Olivia Kent says “ILC has many consumers who have faced the challenges of strokes and utilize the services of the center to live independently.” Some indicators of having suffered a stroke are dizziness, problems with swallowing, sleeping at night, or pain and spasms in the arms or legs. Equip- ping one’s self with information can be lifesaving when folks recognize the warning signs. Kent added “True to our legacy, we want to help keep people informed, educated, and equipped.” ILCKC is located in the Westpark Plaza with Kern Around the Clock.

Congress will soon review the BRAIN Initiative -- likened to the Human Genome Project -and House Majority leader Eric Cantor has already showed early support. To help connect athletes and soldiers suffering from TBIs with the physicians and business leaders who can help, the Coalition for Concussion Treatment (#C4CT) was created.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report more than 1 million sports-related traumatic brain injuries in the U.S. every year, striking middle-schoolers and professional football players alike.

The Wounded Warrior Project has awarded a $3.5 million matching challenge grant to the Gemini Program.

DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My 73-year-old husband has, in the past year, been jerking during his sleep. His movements are quite wild at times. He has fallen out of bed three times during his "fighting" dreams. He dreams he is in a fight at work, playing football or shooting things. Just last night, it was killing mice. He jerks with his arms and legs. I don't attempt to wake him, as one time he was on the verge of striking me. I did yell his name three times, and he finally woke up. He has had two sleep tests and was told he has "half sleep apnea." What does that mean? He takes no sleeping aids. I have never heard that such movements are a sign of sleep apnea. -- D.S. ANSWER: A good bet is that your husband has a condition called periodic limb movements of sleep. For many, such movements are bending of the big toe and ankle. For others, it's jerking of the legs and arms. Most often the person doesn't waken and has no recollection of what went on during the night. The bed partner and the condition of the blankets give testimony to what occurred during LOCATIONS sleep. If the person doesn't have daytime fatigue, then this disorder isn't considered a sleep problem for him or her. It is for the one who shares the bed. Sometimes periodic limb movements of sleep occur with another problem, restless leg syndrome. That's a creepycrawly sensation in the legs that comes on in the evening when sitting or in bed. The person is compelled to get up and move around to quell the feeling. A warm bath before going to bed might calm your husband's movements. Decreasing the amount of caffeine he drinks and doing the same for all forms of tobacco could bring nocturnal peace for you and him. If the situation doesn't clear, then Mirapex or Requip, two Parkinson's disease medicines, can put an end to the nighttime martial arts. Do tell his doctor about this. Periodic limb movements of sleep are, at times, associated with iron deficiency. I have no idea what "half sleep apnea" means. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Every now and then, my eyelid twitches. I don't think it's due to me being tired, because it can happen when I am wide awake in the morning. And I don't think it's due to stress -- I love my work. Furthermore, I don't drink any caffeinated beverages. What do you think is the significance of this? -- H.R. ANSWER: Nearly everyone has had a twitchy eyelid at some time in life. It's not a sign of illness. It's not something that lasts for any length of time. Fatigue, stress and caffeinated beverages all have been implicated as causes. But most people with a twitchy lid are like you; they have and do none of these things. A washcloth soaked in warm water and placed on the involved, closed lid for a few minutes generally can stop the twitching. Or gentle massage of the involved, closed lid also can end it. If it continues and lasts for longer periods, then a doctor has to be consulted. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Constructed by NASA physicist George Van Tassel, who said aliens supplied him with instructions to build it, Integratron is the only all-wood, acoustically perfect sound chamber in the United States. Rising 38-feet from a powerful vortex in the middle of the Mojave Desert just outside the town of Joshua Tree and resembling a small observatory, the one-of-a-kind building is a blended design of Moses' Tabernacle and the science of Nikola Tesla. Fifty-five feet in diameter, the dome took 18 years to construct, and according to its creator sits atop an intersection of influential geomagnetic force that, when focused by the unique geometry of the building, concentrates and amplifies the energy required for the rejuvenation and healing of living cell tissues. Today, Intergratron still lives up to its architect’s claim, offering visitors the experience for physical and spiritual healing. For around $80, a person can take a sound bath — a 60- PHOTOS COURTESY WWW.GLADIS.IS Above: Built on a powerful vortex in the middle of the Mojave Desert in Landers, the Integratron is a one-of-a-kind building said to possess powers required for the rejuvenation and healing of living cell tissues. At right: The interior of the Integratron provides the perfect setting for a sonic healing session within its highly resonant, multi-wave sound chamber. minute sonic healing session with a series of quartz crystal bowls played live in the Integratron's highly resonant, multiwave sound chamber. An experience that is said to leave those who try it, refreshed and “buzzed.” Private group and individual sound baths are offered Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and require reservations. However, "no reservations" sound baths are offered two weekends per month, April through June. The cost is $20 per person. An associated attraction, but not visible from the Integratron is “Giant Rock,” a seven-story high, freestanding boulder where Van Tassel lived for many years, ran a small restaurant and airport and held UFO conventions for two decades to raise money for his Integratron project. In 1959, nearly 11,000 people attended one of his spacecraft conventions and Van Tassel continued to work on the Integratron while writing a number of books on time travel and rejuvenation. The Giant Rock area, including a spot called Crystal Hill and Van Tassel's airstrip are about 10 minutes by car from the dome. However, because all roads are sandy dirt, it is advised that adventures have their own fourwheel drive or climb into a comfortable Suburban for an air-conditioned ride and guided tour of the entire region. The Integratron is located at 2477 Belfield Blvd., Landers, about 160 miles from downtown Tehachapi. Please be sure to call ahead to check hours of operations or to book a sound bath, call 760-3643126 or visit www.integratron.com. To book a guided Giant Rock tour call 760-475-0383. Fish & Wildlife Are remote-controlled aircraft allowed in California Reserves? Q&As from the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife BY CARRIE WILSON CONTRIBUTING WRITER Question: I am a conservation advocate and an avid wildlife photographer. Over the last several years, I have been photographing birds and landscape views of Southern California's wildlife areas. I am interested in expanding this documentation with video, and in particular aerial video taken from a remote-controlled electric helicopter. While I am very aware of the need to not disturb or harass local wildlife, I am wondering if there are regulations that restrict or prohibit the use of RC-aircraft in or around the perimeter of ecological reserves and conservation areas? (Bill K.) Answer: There is no general prohibition against using radio-controlled “vehicles” in wildlife areas (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 550). However, in ecological reserves, prohibitions against: 1) disturbing any bird, mammal, etc.; 2) operating vehicles; and 3) operating any type of aircraft or hovercraft without permission may apply (CCR Title 14, sections 630(a)(1) & (a)(4) and (a)(17)). There is also a provision that prohibits the use of any motorized, hot-air, or unpowered aircraft or other device capable of flight or any earth orbiting imaging device to locate or assist in locating big game mammals beginning 48 hours before and continuing 48 hours after any big game hunting season in the same area (CCR Title 14, section 251(a)). In addition, a permit could be required if there are concerns your aircraft will “ … herd or drive… or disrupt animal’s normal behavior patterns, which includes, but is not limited to breeding, feeding or sheltering …” Under federal regulations, this may be illegal if you are using the video for any commercial purpose. Under current federal aviation rules, using unmanned aircraft — what commonly are referred to as drones — for commercial purposes is prohibited in the United States. Please contact the Regional Manager for the area you intend to visit for information on the application of these laws. For a list of contact numbers available, please go to www.dfg.ca.gov/regions/. Serving abalone at a fundraiser Question: My husband and I are residents of both Humboldt and Sutter counties. We occasionally dive for abalone in Humboldt where we live. If we don't consume them right away, we freeze them whole in the shell as the local game warden advised us years ago. I also work for a nonprofit hospice in Sutter County and they are having a fundraiser in May at a private house, where many of our staff will prepare appetizers for 100 guests. I want to prepare abalone appetizers from three abalone that we already have tagged and frozen from last season. The event is being professionally catered for the meal and dessert and so they are selling tickets, but no one is paying for or making money from the abalone I want to cook. The abalone is such a minuscule part of the meal. I just want to make sure I am allowed to bring it to an event like this and I was not able to find anything specific about that in the regulations. Please advise. Thank you. (Amy M., RN) Answer: Sport-taken abalone may not be bought, sold, bartered or traded (Fish and Game Code, section 7121.) If sport-taken abalone are used for a non-profit fundraising dinner, then the cost of attending the dinner must be advertised as a requested donation to the organization putting on the dinner. In your situation, if you are just providing a few abalone for an appetizer, and as long as the dinner is not advertised to contain abalone in order to sell more tickets to the fund-raising dinner, then I think that would be ok. However, you should contact your local game warden where you will be having the dinner to confirm they are in agreement. Poke poling – need a license? Question: Do I need a fishing license to poke pole for monkey-faced eels? (Anonymous) Answer: Yes, the only exceptions are if you are 15 years old or younger or if you are fishing from a public pier or the most seaward jetty of a public harbor. Otherwise a fishing license is required and all regular fishing regulations apply. CARRIE WILSON is a marine environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Whether pasta salads, potato salads or even those leafy greens, this side favorite is a perfect accompaniment to juicy grilled burgers, brats and steaks. Because this savory barbeque fare can bring out anyone's sweet tooth, don't forget to dish out the desserts. Adding your favorite nuts, fruit and candy toppings to a rich, gooey brownie can melt the hearts of guests as easily as the hot summer sun.

This gives you more time to focus on the important things, like grilling your next culinary masterpiece and hanging out with your family.

But with so many options available, how do you know which lawn mower is right for you? Know Your Yard Spend a few minutes assessing your yard. How big is it? Is it flat and smooth, or does it slope? Do you have trees and garden beds to mow around? All of these will factor into the kind of lawn mower you choose. • Size - If your yard is smaller than half an acre, a walk-behind mower will work just fine for you. For yards larger than that, you may want to consider a riding mower. • Topography - If your yard has uneven terrain, a self-propelled mower will make cutting up hill much quicker and easier. • Obstacles - For mowing around trees and landscape beds, pay attention to the mower's maneuverability and ease-of-use when making tight turns. For example, John Deere X310 Select Series riding mowers have power steering, which makes trimming around tight areas much easier. • Turf - The thickness and coarseness of your grass will play a part in how much power you need to ensure a clean cut. Lawns with thicker, tougher grass will need a mower with higher horsepower and larger wheels. • Additional yard tasks - If your list of seasonal chores includes collecting fall leaves, fertilizing your lawn or removing snow, look for a lawn tractor with attachment options that can help keep your yard in good shape year round. Safety Features Operating any piece of power equipment requires taking safety precautions. Before you buy a mower, make sure you know what safety features come standard. For example, the blades on John Deere riding lawn mowers will automatically shut off if the operator leaves the seat while the blades are in motion. And, be sure to familiarize yourself with the operator's manual so you understand all of the features on your equipment. After-Sale Service For long-term savings, look for a mower brand that provides reliable after-sale support and maintenance. Local equipment dealers not only help you make the right purchase, but can offer on-site maintenance and even at-home service like John Deere's Mobile Maintenance program, that brings a factory-trained technician to your home.

If you can check all those boxes, consider these options: • Avoid the gift tax. You can give cash or property worth up to $14,000 per year, per individual, before you'll trigger the federal gift tax. (Married couples filing jointly can give $28,000 per recipient.) You'll probably never have to pay a gift tax, however, since you're allowed to bestow up to $5.25 million in gifts during your lifetime above and beyond the annual $14,000 excluded amounts before the gift tax kicks in – which for most of us means never. Read IRS Publication 950 (at www.irs.gov) for details. CONTRIBUTING WRITER Now that the long-debated estate tax rules have finally been settled, let's get real: Despite all the hoopla raised, most people probably would never be impacted whether the lifetime estate tax threshold had stayed at $5.12 million or reverted to $1 million. In the end, it actually went up a bit to $5.25 million for 2013. Even if your estate will only be a fraction of that amount, it still pays to have a plan for distributing your assets. If your finances are in good shape, there's no reason not to start sharing the wealth while you're still around to enjoy helping others. It also doesn't hurt that you can reap significant tax advantages by distributing a portion of your assets now. Before you start doling out cash, however, make sure you are on track to fund your own retirement, have adequate health insurance, can pay off your mortgage and are otherwise debt-free. You wouldn't want to deplete your • Pay for education. If college is still far off for your children, grandchildren or others, consider funding a 529 State Qualified Tuition Plan for them. Any interest the account earns is not subject to federal (and in most cases, state) income tax; plus, many states offer tax deductions for contributions made to their own 529 Plans. And don't worry: If one child decides not to attend college, you can always transfer the account balance to another without penalty. • Roth IRAs for kids. If your minor children or grandchildren earn income (allowances and gifts don't count), you may fund a Roth IRA on their behalf. You can contribute up to $5,500 or the amount of their taxable earnings for the year, whichever is less. Your contributions are made on an after-tax basis but the earnings grow, tax-free, until the account is tapped at retirement. • Fund someone's benefits. Many people cannot afford health or other insurance and so forego coverage, putting themselves just one serious illness or accident away from financial disaster. Many also can't fund their 401(k) plan or IRA. Consider applying your tax-exempt gifts to help loved ones pay for these critical benefits. You'll not help protect them from catastrophe, but also greatly increase their long-term financial self-sufficiency. • Charitable contributions. If you're planning to leave money or property to charities in your will, consider beginning to share those assets now, if you can afford to. You'll be able to enjoy watching your contributions at work – and be able to deduct them from your income taxes. Read IRS Publication 526 for details. Before taking any of these actions, consult your financial advisor to make sure your own bases are covered. If you don't have an advisor, visit www.fpaforfinancialplanning.org for help locating one.

She has been raised around cats and other dogs, but she will chase the cats any chance she gets much to their dismay. Since Artemis is still just a puppy, albeit a very large puppy, we would like to find her a dog savvy owner who would consider taking her to puppy obedience class, as without proper training, a dog this size could be quite a handful. shots, tags, microchipped. (In-Door only please). Sweet, loves to be cuddled, likes toy mice, watches birds out window in her cat tree. A real jewel! Never been around children, has shared a house with other cats and a small dog. Can go with her friend Breezie or separately. We have many great adult cats looking for new homes.
