Astronomy Club sharing sky-wonder at Brite Lake BY EMILY BRUNETT TEHACHAPI NEWS

For centuries, the night sky has captured wonder and awe from gazers. Although many things have changed over time, stargazing remains a favorite pasttime and science. The Antelope Valley Astronomy Club is dedicated to bringing the beauty of the night sky to families in the Antelope Valley, as described on the club’s website, avastronomyclub.org. The members are bringing that dedication to Brite Lake Aquatic Recreation Area on Aug. 3 for a public “Star Party” to be preceded by a members-only picnic. Since the picnic is private, the club is asking the public to wait until after 7:30 p.m. to arrive, unless guests need to set up their own telescope, for which they can arrive at 7 p.m. Once there, party-goers can mingle with the members until dawn. At a Star Party, club members and visitors view celestial objects such as planets, galaxies, star clusters, nebulae and sometimes even comets through telescopes of various types, designs and sizes. To preserve nightadapted vision, only red lighting will be allowed and visitors are asked not to use white light flashlights. Even the moon will not get in the way of the celestial gazers; the first weekend in August is that of a new moon, making the sky the darkest possible for astronomical observing. “This will be the third year we’ve had our club picnic, or ‘Star-B-Que,’ and a public outreach event at Brite Lake in Tehachapi,” said the club’s vice president Frank Moore. “My wife Rose and I had wanted to hold it here for years and finally got the rest of the board to agree after a picnic at one of our regular sites, Saddleback Butte

State Park, was incinerated by 112 degree temperatures. “That did it for them,” Moore said, continuing. “They said, ‘Let’s move it to Tehachapi where it’s cooler and the skies are darker.’” Moore said he knew the parking lot at Brite Lake would work for the event since his daughter’s Brownie troop held a star party there many years ago, for which the parking lot lights were turned off. Since Brite Lake is operated by the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks District, Moore said he works with them to ensure darkness for the party. “The TVRPD has been wonderful in supporting this event by turning

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With new facts to work with, you should feel more confident in moving ahead. But continue to do so at an unhurried pace so you can spot details you might otherwise miss. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Taking on that new workplace project could be one of your smarter career moves. Expect a surprising show of support from someone who had always been a critic. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might feel you're too busy to undertake a new responsibility. But check it out before making any decisions. What you learn could persuade you

to change your mind. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You feel quite content enjoying all the comforts of home right now. But the urge to travel grows stronger, and by week's end, you could begin packing your bags. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) A hectic period begins to ease up, but that doesn't mean the Fine Feline can do much catnapping these days. You need to finish those old tasks and prepare for new ones. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Expect to get some good news about your financial situation by week's end. But it could still be too early to rush out

out nearby lights in the Brite Lake Recreational Area and the TehachapiCummings County Water District came on board by turning their lights out last year,” Moore said. “I got a response from the TCCWD... and they will be doing the same for us again this year.” Brite Lake is located at 22902 Banducci Road, off of Highline Road. Because the main parking lot will be used as the telescope field, visitors should park along the dirt road or in the field immediately to the east of the parking lot. For more information about the club or the upcoming “Star Party,” call the Moores at 822-4580 or 9724775.

with a long shopping list of things to buy. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Your management skills make an impression on some workplace VIPs who might be looking for someone like you to take on an upcoming project. Good luck. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Meeting a former adversary might be unsettling at first. But time has softened hard feelings, and you could be on the brink of starting a new relationship. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A troubling situation close to home might cause you to change your travel plans. But getting all the facts before you act might cause you to reconsider. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be quite alone right now in deciding

to support a major workplace shift. But others will join you as new information supports your bold move. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A former co-worker returns with news that could persuade you to reassess recently made plans. Be sure to consult with a trusted colleague before you act. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Your motives behind a recent decision could be called into question by a rival. But once you present the facts, all doubts will be resolved. Enjoy an arts-rich weekend.

Ranchers For Peace at Fiddlers Crossing Aug. 9 BY DEBORAH HAND-CUTLER CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Throughout history, music has been an important form of communication. Early bards traveled from place to place, singing the news of the times and keeping tales of heroism and adventure alive. In U.S. history, songs sung on the plantations would let African slaves know when and how to run for freedom. In more modern times, songs have been used to raise social consciousness to the issues of the day. “We Shall Overcome” became the anthem of the Civil Rights Movement. Pete Seeger’s “Where Have all the Flowers Gone” and Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind” were sung by a generation in reaction to an unpopular war. Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is your Land” was a response to the fencing off of the West. The intent was not “political” in the sense of one party or the

Ranchers for Peace will perform at Fiddlers Crossing Friday, Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 E. “F” St. at Robinson in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets to the concert are $20. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. other, but a deeper yearning for justice and “right” in a world gone astray. This is the tradition followed by Ranchers For Peace. The father-daughter duo from Cambria, Charles and Ray Duncan,

will be appearing at Fiddlers Crossing Friday, August 9, at 7 p.m. Everywhere they have played, including a recent concert in Bakersfield, they have garnered rave reviews for their songs and their entwined vocal and

instrumental harmonies that use melodica, harmonica and guitar. Despite their name, they are not actually involved in the livestock business. In their words, their kind of ranching is done “where worldly concerns combine with empathy and, on a good day, become audible.” The “peace” they are “for” is not something that can be directly invoked, they say, but is a byproduct that only arises in the presence of other favorable conditions and qualities, such as justice. “Our mission,” say these Ranchers For Peace, “is to advocate for such conditions, and to join our noise with the long tradition of folksingers, bards, and troubadours who have done the same.” They sing of the great issues facing us today, of immigration, racial tensions, pollution and the excesses of the corporate culture. But their overall message is simply that it’s cool to care.

Charles, a former TV writer, grew up in the 1960s when “music was part of the conversation” about civil rights, the Vietnam War and other social issues of the day. Seventeen-year-old Ray doesn't think it's cool to be detached -- too "chill," in her words -- and she welcomes a chance to demonstrate that a little catharsis is good for the soul, and good for society. “We think and we feel, and often both at the same time. And plenty of people seem to be inclined to join us for the ride.” Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 E. “F” St. at Robinson in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased next door at Mountain Music, at The Apple Shed, or with a credit card by calling 661-8239994. Tickets to the concert are $20, and as always, coffee and goodies are included.

Health & Fitness Ask the Doctor

Maintaining diabetic diet can be daunting BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What should I eat with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol? All the advice I get tells me what I cannot eat - no potatoes, no bread, no crackers, no cereal, no fruit. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I don't know what to eat. — C.L. ANSWER: The diet for type 1 and type 2 diabetes is not as restrictive as it once was. You can eat all the foods you mentioned. Sugar also can be eaten, something that was strictly prohibited in the past. You have to use it in moderation, and it's best to save sugar calories for other carbohydrates by using artificial sweeteners. Weight reduction, if applicable to you, is the best way for you to control blood sugar. A 5 percent to 10 percent weight loss is a sure way to keep blood sugar where it should be. For high blood pressure, limit salt. You ought not to eat more than 1,500 mg a day of sodium. Read the sodium content of foods on their nutrition labels. For cholesterol control, cut back on fatty meats and whole-fat dairy products. You can use low-fat dairy. Carbohydrates are an issue with diabetes. Carbohydrates are sugars and starches. They should con-

stitute 50 percent to 55 percent of your total daily calories. Fruits (yes, you can eat them), vegetables, cereals, breads, crackers, pastas and similar foods are carbohydrates. You have to get a book that lists the calorie content of foods and their protein, fat and carbohydrate makeup. These guides are in all bookstores, and they're cheap. Breakfast shouldn't be a problem. You can drink orange juice if you like it, have cereal, have toast and drink coffee or whatever. You need a coach in the form of a dietitian. The dietitian can help you navigate through the difficulties of understanding a diabetic diet. Your doctor or the local hospital can put you in touch with one. You also need to contact the American Diabetes Association, whose website is www.diabetes.org. Or call 1-800-342-2383. The association will provide you with tons of information on diet and on diabetes in general. The booklet on diabetes presents this illness and its treatments in detail. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No.

402W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 59-year-old man. About five years ago, I had my spleen removed due to a traumatic injury. I was vaccinated with the pneumococcus vaccine. I was told that it would last a lifetime. Does that apply to a person without a spleen? — J.K. ANSWER: The spleen is an integral part of the immune system. People who don't have one are more susceptible to infections and, in particular, to pneumococcal infections. The pneumococcus (NEWmoe-KOK-us) causes pneumonia and potentially lethal blood infections. People without a spleen need a second dose of the vaccine five years after the first dose. The pneumococcal vaccine is popularly called the pneumonia vaccine. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. © 2013 North America Synd., Inc., all rights reserved.

Home & Garden

(Family Features) Summer entertaining is easy with simple, crowd-pleasing recipes from light bites to sweet delights that require almost no time in the kitchen. Invite over a few of your closest friends, heat up the grill and set out your favorite wines for a truly memorable outdoor dinner party. Select simple recipes that can be prepared ahead of time and quickly seared on the grill once your guests have arrived. Everyone will enjoy the food and you'll love that you're not trapped in the kitchen. Prep, chop and marinate everything then store it all in containers. Continue the trend of simplicity by serving food-friendly wines, such as those from Las Rocas. Las Rocas, which literally means "the rocks" because of the rocky soil where the grapes are grown, produces an incredibly vibrant Garnacha and refreshing RosÈ that pair wonderfully with these dishes. Make the occasion truly special by beginning the festivities at sundown to take advantage of the cool breezes and beautiful sunset. Line the tables with a row of small candles, hang sparkling white lights from the trees and put on your favorite music. Your guests may never want to leave. For more information, visit www.lasrocaswine.com.

Pan Seared Rib Eye with Balsamic Glaze and Crispy Salted Potato Wedges Serve with Las Rocas Garnacha, a vibrant and versatile red wine with rich dark berry flavors and aromas. Yield: 4 to 6 servings

For Crispy Fingerling Potatoes • 1 pound small Yukon gold potatoes cut into wedges • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil • 1 teaspoon roughly chopped fresh rosemary leaves, plus a couple of sprigs

For Steaks Kosher or coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper • 4 3/4-pound bone in rib-eye steaks, about 1 inch thick • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced • 1/2 cup aged balsamic vinegar • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter For potatoes: Place the potatoes in saucepan and cover with cold, salted water. Set over high heat and bring to boil. Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 10 minutes depending on size of potatoes. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Pat potatoes dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set potatoes aside and begin steak. For steak: Sprinkle large cast-iron skillet with kosher or coarse salt; heat skillet over high heat for about 8 minutes, then add steaks. Sear until steaks are crusted brown, about 4 minutes; turn steaks. Sear to desired doneness or about 6 more minutes for medium rare. Transfer to cutting board and let rest while you make sauce. Wipe out pan and add shallot; cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Slowly add vinegar and 1 tablespoon of water and bring to a boil. Stir continuously until reduces and thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat, swirl in butter, and season with pepper to taste. Drizzle sauce over steaks just before serving. To finish potatoes: Heat olive oil in large skillet over high heat. When hot, add seasoned potatoes, cut side down, and rosemary. Cook until golden and crispy, about 2 minutes per side. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper to taste.

Red Wine and Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta Yield: 6 servings

• 1 orange • 1 cup blackberries and or raspberries • 1 vanilla bean, cut in half • 3 cups Las Rocas Garnacha wine • 2/3 cup sugar • 1 cup whole milk • 1 1/4-ounce packet unflavored powdered gelatin • 2 cups whole Greek style yogurt • Fresh mint sprigs for garnish Remove a wide, 2-inch-long strip of zest from orange with sharp paring knife. Peel and segment orange and toss with blackberries, cover and refrigerate.

Scrape seeds from vanilla bean. Place seeds and pod in small saucepan. Add wine, 1/3 cup sugar and orange zest strip. Simmer over medium-low heat until reduced to 1 1/4 cups, about 35 minutes. Discard vanilla bean pod and zest strip. Cool completely. Set aside 1/4 cup for serving. Combine milk with remaining 1/3 cup sugar in medium saucepan. Sprinkle in gelatin and let stand, undisturbed, until gelatin softens, about 4 minutes. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until gelatin and sugar are just dissolved (do not boil); let cool. Whisk in 1 cup of wine reduction and yogurt until smooth. Pour into six 6-ounce ramekins or jars, cover and refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours or overnight. If using ramekins, dip bottom of each ramekin in warm water to loosen. Invert each panna cotta onto a plate. If using jars, skip this step. Drizzle panna cottas with reserved wine reduction and garnish with oranges and berries and sprig of fresh mint.

Goat Cheese Crostini with Grilled Peaches, Serrano Ham and Marcona Almonds Serve with Las Rocas RosÈ, a fruit-forward seasonal wine with notes of raspberry and strawberry. Yield: 1 dozen crostini

• 12 slices French bread, sliced on the diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices • Extra virgin olive oil • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper • 12 thinly sliced pieces Serrano ham • 2 ripe peaches, halved, pitted and sliced onto 12 thin wedges • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup) • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped Marcona almonds Preheat grill. Brush each slice of bread on one side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Grill, oil-side down until lightly golden brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from grill and place a piece Serrano ham on each. Drizzle peaches with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Grill peaches until grill marks appear, turning once, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Place warm grilled peaches on top of each crostini and sprinkle each with crumbled goat cheese and Marcona almonds. Drizzle them lightly with additional olive oil. Serve. Source: Las Rocas

A Great Day in the Garden

How to replace important documents Spotted Spurge: BY JASON ALDERMAN CONTRIBUTING WRITER

If your wallet has ever been lost or stolen, you know what a pain it is to replace your driver's license. That goes double when other vital documents like your, passport, birth certificate or car registration are misplaced or destroyed in a natural disaster. Without the proper ID, you can't start a new job, buy a house, apply for insurance or a host of other common transactions. Here's a guide on how to get copies or replacements for many common documents: Birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates. These records come from the states where the events occurred. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a handy directory that provides links to the appropriate agencies in all U.S. states and territories, including costs and mailing instructions (cdc.gov/nchs/w2w.htm). Passport. Immediately report lost or stolen passports to the U.S. State Department by calling 877487-2778. If it happens overseas, contact the nearest

U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Visit travel.state.gov/passport/lost/lost_848.html for further instructions. Driver's license, car registration. To learn how to replace your driver's license, vehicle registration or car title (which you'll need to transfer ownership), or to access other motor vehicle services, contact the Department of Motor Vehicles. Go to www.usa.gov/Topics/Motor -Vehicles.shtml for links to each state's DMV. Social Security card. These days, you may not actually need to replace a misplaced Social Security card. If you know your Social Security number, you generally can still collect Social Security benefits, get a job and apply for government benefits and services. However, if you do want to replace the card, you'll need to gather documents proving your identity and citizenship and complete an application (www.ssa.gov/online/ss5.pdf); then mail or take the paperwork to your local Social Security office. Military service records. Veterans often need copies

Medicaid card, contact Medicaid (medicaid.gov). Tax returns. If you need exact copies of previously filed and processed tax returns (including attachments), you may order them from the IRS by submitting IRS Form 4506 (at irs.gov). There is a $57 fee for each year's return you request. Before ordering an exact copy, however, ask whether a "tax return transcript" or "tax account transcript" will suffice. These abbreviated printouts of returns are often acceptable substitutes for student loan and mortgage lenders and are free. To order transcripts, go to irs.gov/Individuals/Order-a-Transcript. School transcripts. If you need to order high school or college transcripts, it's best to contact the school's registrar or student services office directly for instructions.

of their military service records to apply for government programs, including health care, retirement or education benefits. You can apply to the National Archives (www.archives.gov/veterans) for a copy of your records (or an immediate family member's if deceased). The site also has information on replacing lost military medals and awards. Green card. If your U.S. Permanent Resident (Green) Card is lost, stolen or damaged, or if your name or other important information has legally changed since it was issued, you may request a new card from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) by filing Form I-90 (available at http://www.uscis.gov). If you're outside the U.S. and lose your green card, contact the nearest U.S. consulate or USCIS office before applying online for a new card. Medicare card.

a garden devil in disguise BY LUCIA SANDY CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Last summer my sister-in-law visited from Massachusetts. She spotted a little leafed plant with beautiful leaf markings and tiny pinkish flowers. The plant grew in a dense mat in drier areas of the garden and very spindly where it received lots of water. She had never seen anything like it in her garden and had to know what it was. I told her that’s a weed that seems to grow everywhere here in Tehachapi. She couldn’t believe that the obnoxious Spotted Spurge (Euphorbia maculata) was on the unwanted plant list of gardeners. In California, it is the most common species of the spurge family, and is a weed which invades many home gardens and commercial crops, lawns ornamental beds and container plants. Spotted spurge, with its tiny, dark green leaves, often have a reddish spot midway down the center leaf vein. The leaves grow in pairs opposites of each other and are approximately one-eighth to onehalf-inch long and about one-eighth inch wide. The plant has a central tap root that is can reach more than a 22 inches long straight down in the soil. The abundant tiny pink flowers produce seed capsules early and once they burst open can start the cycle of a very invasive weed problem. A single plant can produce several thousand seeds, which can remain dormant in the soil until conditions are suitable for sprouting. When the stem is cut or damaged, it will ooze a poisonous milky sap that can irritate the skin and eyes. See A MOST UNWELCOMED GARDEN GUEST/Page 12

A most unwelcomed garden guest Continued from page 11 According to the University of California, Agriculture and Natural Resources, Spotted Spurge can establish itself in horticultural, agricultural, and non-crop sites. It overgrows sparse turf areas and lowgrowing ground covers, invades open areas in gardens and landscapes, and can grow in sidewalk cracks. In addition to reducing the growth of desirable plants, spotted spurge reduces uniformity and quality of turf, provides a habitat for undesirable insects in citrus groves, serves as an intermediate host for fungal diseases of cultivated crops and attracts ants with its seed. Spotted spurge is poisonous and can kill sheep grazing in pastures where it is the

predominant weed. Sheep that consumed as little as 0.62 percent of their body weight of this plant have died within a few hours. Pre-emergent herbicides can help prevent spotted spurge outbreaks if you apply them in late winter before weed seeds germinate. Apply before the soil temperature exceeds 55° to 60°F at a depth of one inch. Use gloves to dig out the plants to avoid skin contact. Dig up Spotted Spurge with a dandelion digger to get as much of the root as possible. This tiny pretty leafed plant can be a devil weed in disguise. Have a great day in the garden! LUCIA SANDY is editor of “4 Seasons Rose Clippings,” newsletter of the Tehachapi Rose and Garden Society.

On the surface, Spotted Spurge appears to be a pretty little plant, but it can wreak havoc in the garden and is poisonous.

My name is Angie. I’m 7 months young and a mastiff/pit mix. I’m the runt of the litter so I don’t think I’m going to get really big. Right now I am about 55 to 60 pounds. I am shy, but very affectionate and playful. When you pet me, I love to fall to the ground for a tummy rub. I’m still learning how to walk on a leash, and I’m getting better at it. I use the doggy door whenever I need to potty so there are no accidents in the house. My mother and I are the only ones left now and I need a forever loving home.
