You should do the following to prepare for a thunderstorm and flooding events. ■ Get inside A home, building, or hard top automobile. You are much safer inside a vehicle than outside. Stay away from windows and doors, and stay off porches. Take shelter in a sturdy building. ■ Have a plan Always have a emergency kit and make a family communications plan. ■ Electrical devices Use your batteryoperated radio for updates from local officials. Avoid contact with corded phones and devices including those recharging. Cordless and wireless phones are OK to use. Unplug appliances power surges from lightning can cause serious damage. ■ Avoid plumbing contact Do not wash your hands, shower, or wash dishes. Plumbing and bathroom fixtures can conduct electricity. ■ Power lines Stay away from downed power lines and report them immediately. ■ Flood watch When flooding is possible. Tune in to NOAA Weather, commercial radio or television for information. ■ Flood Warning Flooding is occurring or will occur soon; if advised to evacuate, do so immediately. Be prepared to move to higher ground ■ Driving If you are driving, try to safely exit the roadway and park. Stay in the vehicle until the heavy rain ends. Remember that six inches of water will reach the bottom of most passenger cars causing loss of control, possible stalling.

Focus on ecology
Local youth get work experience Jaimie Olle, U.S.F.S. Summer Volunteer Courier Special Each summer since 1970 the U.S. Forest Service has provided America's youth with an opportunity for work experience coupled with environmental education through its program recognized as the Youth Conservation Corps. The focus of the YCC is to foster respect and responsibility for the earth's natural resources via increased ecological knowledge while completing work projects on public lands. The Kern Valley is home to its very own YCC crew, organized by John Gomez of the Sequoia National Forest. This particular sector of YCC will be focusing on clean up and restoration projects throughout the forest during the 2013 summer. While the YCC is a nationwide opportunity, the Kern River Ranger District had not hosted a crew for over a decade up until last year. The

reinstallation of the program was the result of a grant submitted to the regional office by Gomez. This year's YCC crew is composed of Angel Anderson, Shasta Christensen, Ariel Simms, Paige Tidwell, Breanna Walker, and Dustin Yunt. After a recommendation process, members of the crew are chosen through random selection. Leading the 2013 YCC crew in the field is Forest Service employee Jackie Williams, who directs
participants through eight 40-hour workweeks, during which time crew members earn state minimum wage. Project assignments for the YCC crew cover a wide variety of tasks and locations. Around the Kern River Valley, the YCC has been hard at work cleaning up trash and debris, as well as filling in exposed standing pipes, which pose an entrapment threat to cavity-nesting birds. The crew has also nature
spent time on the Kern Plateau working on campground clearance projects that include ash removal from campfire pits, as well as, ensuring that there is sufficient defensible space around each campsite. Their upcoming projects include the revitalization of signage within a number of the forest's Penny Pines plantations and a restoration project in French Meadow that seeks to combat serious erosion. Along with group projects, each YCC member spends a week in one of the forest's ranger stations gaining valuable experience in multiple facets of the agency. The YCC program is not only dedicated to teaching a strong work ethic, but also seeks to provide an opportunity for educational growth in understanding natural resources, and the role of ecology in society today.

Kern River Valley Cemetery District The Kern River Valley Cemetery District would like to thank the community for their continued support. The Solar Pledge drive has risen $8,400 to date, but there is a long way to go to raise the $58,000 needed. The Cemetery District believes that the generosity of the community will provide. For the past several years the Kern River Valley Public Cemetery District has been actively engaged in research regarding the use of alternative energy. The primary reason for installing an alternative energy system, solar paneling, is to reduce the cost of electricity needed for the District structures and to run the water delivery system for the irrigation of the cemetery. With the use of alternative energy the District will be able to redirect the monies spent for the energy needs of the District to the operations of the cemetery, such as hiring a part-time groundskeeper, general improvements, and beautification of the cemetery grounds. Manager Randy Kyt invites anyone with questions to call him at 760-376-2189.

Peace like a river Dan Schlensker, Courier Columnist As we bask in the afterglow of Independence Day with all its festivities and remembrances, we are thankful for the peace we enjoy in Schlensker the U.S.A., and we enjoy it in a number of ways. There are no military conflicts anywhere near where we live. We even have regular demonstrations of the tools used by our military to preserve our peace. Thankfully, gang wars and drug wars have little effect on the Kern River Valley. Among the most severe conflicts in our neighborhood are probably the ones on the football field or the ones that have something to do with fishing spots. There’s a greater and more sublime peace, though, of which we have a wonderful reminder in our Valley; and that reminder is a river. The prophet Isaiah (66:12), proclaimed, “For this is what the LORD says: ‘I will extend peace to her like a river.’” If you check the context of ch. 66, you discover that “her” is Mt. Zion and the city, which sat atop it: Jerusalem. And Jerusalem was headquarters for the earthly realm of God’s chosen people. God was going to give His people “peace like a river.” What? Peace that’s wet? Peace on the rocks? Peace you can put your kayak into or your raft on? Well no, I don’t think so. It’s more like peace that’s never stagnant or stale, peace that pro-
vides life-giving water, peace that brings nourishment in fresh fish to catch and eat, peace that comes from having any and all pollution carried away. That’s the kind of river-like peace God was going to give to His people. But were those recipients just to be the Children of Israel, or the residents of Judea? No. That peace was meant for anyone who trusted the LORD and who believed in the One, Whom He was to send to establish the most all-encompassing river-like peace that could possibly be: it was none other than His Son, Jesus of Nazareth. It is He, Who brings to all, who trust in Him, peace like a river. For it was Jesus, Who brought a continuously flowing fresh supply of the Water of Life (John 4:14, Revelation 22). It is He, Who brings nourishment through His word (John 5:24, 6:53-55) and through His body and blood (Matthew 26:26). It is Jesus, Who has carried away all that pollutes the people of the world. Like Isaiah wrote in chapter 53, “Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, ... he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; ... and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” That’s the river-like peace that God has established for all who trust in His Son for the forgiveness of their sins, their daily sustenance, their new life in Him, and their eternal well-being in His glorious mansion. That’s peace like a river. Dan Schlensker is pastor of Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Lake Isabella.

Antler, Fin & Feather Report
Something for every angler Mike Mencarini Courier Columnist Part one of two parts about the Isabella Lake fishery. A brief reservior history: Prior to the construction of the Mencarini Isabella Dam, the lake bed was a wild town known as Whiskey Flats. In the late 1800s, gold was found and the town was on the map. In the early part of the 1900s, the town prospered and the name was changed to Kernville. The Kern River flowed along the outskirts of town, all the way to Bakersfield. As the city of Bakersfield grew as an agricultural community, the need for water increased. In the late 1940s, the Army Corp of Engineers developed plans to create an artificial lake. The area best suited was where the town of Kernville and Old Isabella then stood. The homes and businesses that were in good enough condition were moved to what is now Kernville, just a few miles up the road, and Lake Isabella, a couple of
miles below the new lake. Everything else was dynamited and razed. When the construction of the Main Dam and the Auxiliary Dam were finished in 1953, the Corp had built California’s largest man-made lake (568,075 acre-feet at full pool). It took the name of Isabella, a yesteryear Spanish queen and the community from which it grew. Reservior structure: Isabella Lake features many types of structures, with rock piles, huge boulders, some still-standing timber, old road beds, two channels and a unique structure - the flume - a man-made waterway built to direct the flow of water through the lake, through the auxiliary dam, to an Edison power plant down river. This structure remains mostly under water except for the driest of years. There are also remnants of an old bridge at the end of Engineer’s Point. The local Habitat Club has positioned metal cages at certain points in the lake to encourage the crappie and other panfish to take up homesteading. Mike Mencarini is a Wofford Heights resident and avid fisherman. For questions or comments you can reach him through the Kern River Couier.

Maki named District Recreation Officer Al Watson, district ranger for the Kern River Ranger District of the Sequoia National Forest announced the selection of Tricia Maki as the District’s Recreation Officer. “Tricia’s skills and experience will be a great addition to our District and we look forward to her arrival,” Watson said. Maki comes to the Kern River Valley from the Mendocino National Forest, where she served as the forest recreation officer. She began her career with the Forest Service 23 years ago. Her first 17 years were spent on the Plumas National Forest, Feather River Ranger District in recreation, lands and minerals management. For the past six years as the Forest Recreation Officer, she managed the offhighway vehicle program and developed recreation, wilderness, trails and recreation special uses programs. She also served as the youth, volunteer and hosted programs coordinator. Maki reports for duty on Monday, July 29 to the Kernville office.
Benson selected as Hume Lake District Ranger Sequoia National Forest supervisor, Kevin Elliott, has announced Teresa Benson has been selected as the new Hume Lake District Ranger. “Teresa will bring valuable experience to the Sequoia National Forest team and the expertise needed to manage a complex district,” Elliott said. Benson recently served as the District Ranger in Cordova, Alaska on the Chugach National Forest, overseeing a 2.4-million-acre ranger district. She also served as the District liaison for Forest Plan Revision, making her a valuable asset as the Sequoia continues in that same process. Benson joined the Forest Service in 1990 on the old Cannell Meadow and Greenhorn Ranger Districts (now the Kern River Ranger District). She served as a Wildlife Biologist and Resource Officer. After spending 15 years on the Sequoia, Benson ventured north to Alaska and worked in a number of capacities until becoming the District Ranger in Cordova in March of 2009. She will take the reigns as District Ranger starting Aug. 5.

‘Mud’ delivers adventure By Sam Struckhoff PICKS OF THE WEEK “Mud” (PG-13) — Two teen boys find a dirty stranger living on wooded island in the Mississippi river. The stranger (Matthew McConaughey) calls himself “Mud,” and he's got some crazy stories to tell -- he’s killed a man, he did it to protect his beautiful girlfriend, Juniper, and he’s only living in a washed-up river boat because he’s hiding from bounty hunters. Well gosh-darn if it don’t all come true. Juniper (Reese Witherspoon), the bounty hunters and the law all have an eye out for Mud. This movie has been making a mess all over the film festivals -- it’s sophisticated, understandable, literary, thrilling and sensitive all at once. McConaughey really delivers as the title character, though the film is really a coming-of-age story about the boys who find him. This movie succeeds because it gives audiences that sense of adventure people get from reading Huckleberry Finn. “Oblivion” (PG-13) — Tom Cruise stars as a futuristic repairman on an abandoned Earth. After alien attackers messed up the environment, most of humanity evacuated the planet. Cruise zips around Earth in a little starship, fixing robots and keeping leftover aliens from attacking important equipment. He’s plagued by mysterious dreams about Earth before the
Matthew McConaughey in “Mud”
attack -- but the attack was before he was born, so its probably nothing. This movie suffers from too much inspiration and not enough originality. There are plenty of parts that will remind you of great science-fiction films, but nothing about “Oblivion” compares with the classics. The visual effects are sophisticated, but just like the plot, many of the visual flourishes draw comparisons to better movies.. “The Place Beyond the Pines” (R) — This intriguing and serious flick has two A-list actors at the top of their games. The story comes in three parts. The first follows, Luke (Ryan Gosling), a motorcycle stuntdriver with the traveling circus, who finds out that he has an infant son with a small-town girl. Luke takes up bank robbery to support his child. The movie then becomes about Avery (Bradley Cooper), a calculating young cop whose life hits a turning point when he encounters Luke. Finally, the movie skips ahead 15 years and focuses on two teenagers in that same small town. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Talking About Real Estate
Even in the market we are in right now, flipping a piece of real estate is a good option for a lot of folks who are tired of the stock market or getting a Freeman 1% return on their CD's. However, as with any investment, you have to be smart about it. Here are five ways to help ensure that you make a good decision. ■ Do your inspections. Many people purchasing something for speculation don't want to spend the money on inspections, wanting to get the property as cheap as possible and put as little work into it as they can before they sell it. Well, not a good idea. Spend the money on at least a termite, septic and home inspection. Knowing what is right and wrong with a property is the only way to be able to budget accordingly for repairs. ■ Be patient. Don't jump on the first property you see, look the market over and talk to professionals in the area. Figure out what locations are better than others. A great deal on a great house in a horrible area is a lot worse than an ok deal on a house in a great area. Do your research. Find a real estate agent that is honest, trustworthy and works hard, who has been working in the area for a few years and makes a lot of sales. ■ Do the repairs right. On a flip, you want a property to be ready to
move into, where a buyer just has to bring their clothes and a tooth brush. If there is something wrong with the house, fix it and put it in writing that you fixed it with proof, pictures even. Buyers want to see what has been done to a home, it helps them take ownership and makes them feel good about the purchase. Plus, the most important factor, you are doing right. Honesty is not the best policy it is the only policy, and when that is the case everyone wins. ■ Use good materials. Buyers are fewer in number and they have more buying power and lenders are also pickier about the condition of a home. Don't go overboard, but use quality stuff that makes sense. Stick with calm paint colors and floors, put cheaper appliances that look good, and make sure the home is clean and tidy on the inside and out. ■ Don't get greedy! Many people lost their shirts when the market collapsed because of greed. Look for fair profit. If a home is worth say 100K at market value, try to get it for 65K, and sell it for 95K. Price things to move so your money turns quick and you can take advantage of other opportunities. Making a bit less but selling relatively quickly is much better than shooting for the moon and letting your money sit while you are at the whim of the market. Don't take anything personal, this is a business decision. Make sure that decision makes sense for all.

ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) A longtime situation starts to move into a new phase. The question for you right now is whether to move with it. Facts emerge by midmonth to help you decide. TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) A talent for organizing your priorities allows you to enjoy a busy social life and not miss a beat in meeting all workplace and/or family commitments. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) What began as a dubious undertaking has now become one of your favorite projects. Your enthusiasm for it rallies support from other doubters-turned-believers. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Accept the help of friends to get you through an unexpectedly difficult situation. There will be time enough later to investigate how all this could have happened so fast. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Change is a major factor for you through midmonth. Be prepared to deal with it on a number of levels, including travel plans and workplace situations. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might not like all the changes that have begun to take place around you. But try to find something positive in at least some of them that you can put to good
use. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) A family member’s unsettling experience could create more problems if it’s not handled with care and love. And who’s the best one to offer all that? You, of course. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) It might not be the right time for you to start a new venture. But it’s a good time to start gathering facts and figures so you’ll be set when the GO! sign lights up. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) The sagacious Sagittarius should have no trouble deciding between those who can and those who cannot be trusted to carry out a workplace commitment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Surprise, surprise. It looks as if that one person you once thought you could never hope to win over to your side suddenly just might choose to join you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might have to set aside your pride for now and accept a change that isn’t to your advantage. Cheer up. There’ll be time later to turn this around in your favor. PISCES (Feb. 19 to Mar. 20) Your creative self emerges as dominant through midmonth. This should help you restart that writing or arts project you’ve left on the shelf for far too long. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

No. 0210040510 of Official Records in the office of the County Recorder of Kern County, State of California, Executed by Charles Hugh Maddin, an unmarried man, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH (payable at time of sale in lawful money of the United States) at: Outside the main entrance to the Wanda Kirk Library, 3611 Rosamond Blvd., Rosamond, CA 93560.

Advanced Reconveyance, Inc., As Trustee, 43545 17th Street W., Ste 503, Lancaster, CA 93534, 661-945-5525, Vickie Durham, Trustee Sale Officer NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on the notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgages, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable,
the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 661-945-5525 using the file number 13-2261. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the internet web site. The best way to verify the postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
