A big July 4th welcome
Michael Batelaan Kern River Courier Publisher Welcome to the Valley’s independence holiday week. We are glad you have joined us for our midsummer red, white and blue celebration. The Kern River Batelaan Courier would like to welcome our out-of-town friends, and wish you the best during your July 4th celebration. Fireworks are set to rocket over Isabella Lake on Saturday, July 6 at about 9 p.m. At press time, donations for this year’s show were still needed. Be sure to give generously at one of the fireworks donation canisters located at businesses around the lake to show the Kern River Valley Chamber of Commerce just how much you appreciate their efforts to produce each year’s fireworks show On Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon, there are three Farmers Markets you can attend. The weather forecast is hot and sunny, so be sure to use your sunscreen! Our local merchants have fishing licenses and boat permits and all the rules. Don’t forget free fishing on Saturday, July 6, the first of two free fishing days set aside for everyone’s enjoyment. The Forest Service offices at the
Lake and in Kernville can supply you with the required fire permit and fire restrictions that may be in effect if you are camping. Camping passes and extra vehicle passes can be obtained at Golden State Surplus and Crossroads Shell in Lake Isabella, Riverside One Stop in Kernville and the Forest Service offices as well as the Kernville Chamber of Commerce office. Be safe! Don’t forget to use caution when around the river and lake. Remember to wear a personal flotation device (PFD) when you are in or near the water. The life you save may be your own or that of a family member. If you drink, do so responsibly and leave all the driving -- be it a vehicle or a boat -- to someone who has not been drinking. You can start your Sunday morning with breakfast at the VFW in Lake Isabella. Check our Calendar section for all the details. And please don’t litter. Be sure to pick up and desposit of all your trash properly before you leave. Leave our area clean for for the next visitor. But above all, have some fun! We wish you many happy returns to our beautiful Kern River Valley! Michael Batelaan is publisher of the Kern River Courier. He can be reached at email@example.com
Rod Middleworth Kern River Courier Columnist Guess what? I noticed that it’s time for the 4th of July holiday. It’s a time when we celebrate the birth of our country. But when I was a kid it was the time for fireworks. All kinds, firecrack- Middleworth ers, sparklers and all the things that you light and flash into the air. They thrilled young kids like me. As a child, I, of course, was interested mostly in firecrackers. There were all kinds of firecrackers! For you youngsters (anyone under 50) you might not know that we could buy any kind of fireworks in the ’30s and ’40s). All you needed was money and an older kid to front for you. Although firecrackers could be sold everywhere, you had to be at least tall enough to look over the counter. We could always get some tall guy to buy for us if we gave them some of the product. The crackers we liked best were the Black Panthers, a black thin firecracker that exploded with a huge bang. The most common firecrackers came in a bunch. All tied together you could light one and it would explode and set off 20 or 30 others in the string. I remember once when we sneaked over to our friend Billy’s
who was asleep and we lit off one of those string crackers and laid it on his bedroom window sill. It went off like a machine gun and unfortunately it broke one of his window panes. We got into big trouble for that and of course Billy ratted on us and our mom got told of our evil deed. The best firecracker was the cherry bomb. It was big and looked dangerous, which it was. It was also very powerful. Properly done, it could blow a mailbox right off its 4x4 post. Or if you dropped it in one of those mini -mailboxes that fastened to the wall of a house, you’d have a hard time finding all the pieces. We all had tootsie toy cars and delighted in blowing them apart with the Black Panthers. All-in-all, it’s a wonder that nobody got hurt or maimed, but we didn’t. We did learn that if you held a firecracker (the lady fingers, which were small firecrackers) in the palm of your hand, they would explode with a bang but wouldn’t hurt you. We never tried that with cherry bombs or black panthers. We were rowdy, but not stupid. Then one day the powers that be decided that firecrackers were too dangerous, which they were, and banned them, leaving only the dull, safe and sane fireworks. Gone were the unsafe and insane crackers, and it was the end of an era. Bang! Wofford Heights resident Rod Middleworth, a retired security manager for Pacific Bell, is an instructor for the local AARP Driver Safety Program.

All materials and workbooks have been updated and include the latest driving information. To learn more, or to enroll, call instructor Gene Verbeet at 760-417-0579.

We Honor Veterans program Optimal Hospice is a proud partner in the We Honor Veterans program sponsored by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Program. The Bakersfield and Lake Isabella offices are currently Level 2 partners, but are eager to achieve the next level so they can better serve Kern County Veterans. Each level requires Optimal to implement more and more programs geared to assisting Veterans’ with their end of life issues. One of our Level 3 program requirements is to establish a veteran-to-veteran volunteer program, with the idea that having volunteers with past military experience would have that special bond and way to communicate with patients who have similar experiences. We are now actively recruiting veterans to volunteer for this program, so if you are a veteran or you have friends or family who are veterans who might be interested in becoming a part of this program, contact the volunteer department at Optimal Hospice Care. Call 661-716-4000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
July ‘Artist of the Month’ Each month there is new art showing in the Museum’s Art Room from talented artists from the Kern River Valley. This month’s art exhibit consists of oil paintings by Donna Louise Fitch. She was interested in art at an early age, but didn’t begin to paint in earnest until she was well into adulthood. In addition to creating works of art, she teaches art as well. She enjoys her work and hopes that we all can enjoy it too. So come by the museum to see her work. Museum hours are Thursday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Janet Kutzner, Lay Eucharistic Minister St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Kernville This is a continuation of the Seven Godly Virtues series. Previously covered were Humility and Patience. Today I would like to lift up the virtue of Kindness. Kutzner David wrote: “Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor.” (Psalm 21:21). Kindness, like Love, is one of those things that is difficult to adequately define, but you surely recognize it when you receive it. When I (Bishop Menees) think of receiving kindness many experiences come to mind, but the most powerful occasion happened in August of 1983. While working on a moving truck and at a truck stop in Lake Manawa, Iowa I learned that my father had died unexpectedly from a heart attack. I asked my driver to take me back the 40+ miles to Omaha, Nebraska so I could catch a flight back to California. He refused, saying he was heading east, not west, and would drop me off in Des Moines where I could take a cab to the airport. In a moment of grief, anger and immaturity, I said a few choice words to the driver, stomped out to the truck, grabbed my duffel bag, and started walking towards the westbound highway. I got about a quarter of a mile when a car pulled over with
a little old man driving with his wife by his side. They asked where I was going and offered to give me a ride to the airport in Omaha because, “We’re going right by there anyway.” I threw my stuff in the trunk and off we went. We traveled in silence for about 10 minutes before the wife shared that they had overheard me in the truck stop and were very sorry for my loss. I thanked them and they said that it was no problem as they were heading west xc to Omaha anyway. They promised to pray for me and my family. In a short time I was dropped off and watched that lovely couple drive off, getting on the freeway heading east. I said a silent prayer of thanks for their kindness and walked into the airport with a heavy heart, but also knowing that I had been blessed by those two lovely people. The virtue of Kindness counters the vice of Envy. Rather than desiring what another has the virtue of kindness seeks to give of oneself fully in compassion and empathy. St. Paul tells us that Kindness is not a natural product, but a super natural spiritual abundance given by God the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:2). We discover that the closer we come to the Lord and the more we invite the Holy Spirit into our lives the less we think of ourselves and more we think of others. My prayer for you and me is that the virtue of Kindness will be a natural outpouring of our relationship with God the Holy Spirit. Reprinted in part, from Bishop Eric Menees, of the San Joaquin Diocese.

Nesting instinct Mike Mencarini Kern River Courier Columnist I’ve been following the pair of Osprey that lives and raises its young on Isabella for several years now. In the past three years this bonded pair of fish eaters has built their nest on Mencarini a power pole in the area of the beginning of the flume. The place I call Free-Air or Wofford Heights Park. Even though Edison removes the nest from the transformer pole each year and for good reason the nest is a mish-mash of whatever is convenient or available and mostly flammable material, this pair of Osprey returned and rebuilt the nest. This year is different. The area where these magnificent birds breed and feed has no water this year. Here is where nature is so cool. The lady of the house has found a new set of digs. Fortun-
ately, she found her perfect spot on a main mast of a sailboat moored at French Gulch Marina (see picture). I’m not quite sure where the old man is gonna sleep but mom seems comfy and obviously not afraid of dock dwellers like myself. This just goes to show all of us that no matter how life goes, a small adjustment is sometimes all we need to keep the boat afloat.
If you havent been on the lake bass fishing, you have been missing a great time. The bass fishing has been on-the- hook so far this summer/late spring. The bass are off the nest and are hungry. With minimal effort, these ole bucket-mouths can be had. Dry lines catch no fish.

Performances support the weight By Sam Struckhoff PICKS OF THE WEEK “42” (PG-13) — The most powerful sports movies often are the ones that show the connection between the game and the nation that loves it. In the story of Jackie Robinson, the actions of a few people make a profound impact on the society at large. This biopic focuses on his entrance into the major leagues, and his first two years there. The gravity of the story is the real of draw of the film, and the lead performances support the weight. Chadwick Boseman plays Robinson as a guarded and solid man, capable of taking so much abuse without fighting back. Harrison Ford plays Branch Rickey, the manager who picked Robinson. This biopic takes the straightforward approach, leaving out anything that would distract from the significance of the true story. “Bullet to the Head” (R) — Sylvester Stallone stars as a grumbly anti-hero in a buddy-action flick full of violence! While you could have deduced all this from looking at a poster, one thing you also should consider is that this movie does it well -- enough. Stallone is sharper and cooler than he's been in the "Expendables" movies, the fights are tougher and the movie just looks better than
most of the action-nostalgia movies flying around. It's not a masterpiece, but it's got those ridiculous, wellexecuted, memorable parts that make fun actionmovies stand out Chadwick -- like when Boseman in Stallone and "42" Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo from "Game of Thrones") fight with firemen's axes. “Wild Bill” (R) — A good movie, with all of the markings of a good Guy Ritchie movie: working-class Brits spouting pithy lines through gravelly accents, high crimes for low rewards, and a fair bit of roughhousing. Bill (Charlie Creed-Mills) gets out of prison to find that his exwife has left their two sons all alone. Bill wants to stay out of trouble, but crime has a way of pulling people back in. The title promises some Western influences, and indeed they come up. The big standoffs have that old spaghetti-Western feel to them. Ultimately, the strongest part of the film is that old bit called the "heart." You can see the complicated nature of the father-son relationship. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Show Saturday July 6
Caring for your flag To prevent undue wear, mount the flag in a location where it can fly freely. Do not display in inclement weather. Fly ends: Watch for the first signs of fraying. Flags can be trimmed or re-hemmed, greatly prolonging the life of the flag. ■ Windy days: high winds are extremely tough on flags. If at all possible, take down the flag when winds exceed 30 mph. ■ Rain or snow: for best results, do not expose your flag to these elements. If exposed, after a heavy rain or snow storm, take down the flag and spread out to dry. Do not fold or roll up a wet flag. ■ Cleaning the flag: Nylon flags can be hand-washed in mild detergent, then spread out to dry. ■ Expected life of a flag: The U.S. Government generally expects an outdoor flag to last approximately 90 to 120 days when flown from dawn to dusk in good weather. ■ Flag disposal: The U.S. Flag Code states that when a flag is in such a condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, it should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning. Many Veteran and civic organizations will properly dispose of a flag at no cost.

Michael Batelaan Kern River Courier Pyrotechnic History China is generally recognized as the birthplace of fireworks with the first explosive mixture found being black powder, during the Sung dynasty (960-1279). It is said that a cook in ancient China found the explosive powered mixture was very flammable and would explode if enclosed in a small space. As Emeril Lagasse would say, “Bam!” The first application of this technology was for entertainment and the Chinese are still the leader in the production of fireworks. Once the recipe for black powder was perfected, they found that it was easily used as rocket fuel. These rockets shot rocket-powered arrows against the Mongol invaders of 1279. The principle behind these rockets is still used in rocket-powered fireworks today. Through adventurous explorers, the knowledge of making fireworks spread west, through Arabia in the seventh century. The Arabs called the rockets Chinese arrows. The Mongols are credited with taking Chinese rockets and gunpowder to Europe around 1241. The first record of their use in Europe is around 1258. Until the 19th century, fireworks remained less than colorful. Pyrotechnicians began to use a combination of potassium chlorate and various metallic salts to make brilliant colors. The salts of these metals produce the different colors: strontium burns red, copper makes blue, barium glows green and sodium, yellow. Magnesium, aluminum, and titanium were found to give off white sparkles or a flash. Even though China invented the fireworks, Europe surpassed them in pyrotechnic development in the 14th century, which coincides with the time the gun was invented. Shot and gunpowder for military use was made by skilled tradesmen, later called firemakers, who also made fireworks for peace or victo-

ry celebrations. During the Renaissance, two European schools of pyrotechnic thought emerged: one in Italy and the other at Nuremberg, Germany. The Italian school of pyrotechnics emphasized elaborate fireworks, and the German school stressed scientific advancement. Both schools added significantly to further development of pyrotechnics and by the mid-17th century, fireworks were used for entertainment on an unprecedented scale in Europe and by the mid-19th century, fireworks became popular in the United States. The physics of Fireworks 2XC1O3 > 2XC1 + 302 = ‘Ka-Boom!’ What most don’t realize is that physics are used and take place during every fireworks show. The science of pyrotechnics involves many physics applications that must be considered to produce entertaining displays. Pyrotechnicians must take into account the relationships between vectors, velocities, projectiles and their trajectories, the explosion and forces behind the fireworks burst patterns. The velocities and the distances traveled by the shells can be understood and manipulated by using the following formulas and mathematical methods: ■ Y=VyT+0.5GT^2 Y=vertical height, Vy=initial vertical velocity, T=hang time, G=acceleration due to gravity. ■ X=VxT - X=horizontal distance, Vx=initial horizontal velocity, T=hang time. ■ The Pythagorean Theorem - a^2 + b^2 = c^2, a or b = vertical or horizontal velocity, c=resultant initial velocity. ■ Trigonometric Functions - Sine, cosine and tangent. In a right triangle sine=opposite side/hypotenuse, cosine=adjacent side/hypotenuse, tangent=opposite

side/adjacent side. Enough of that! Formulas you see are primarily what are used to chart trajectories. They are very useful tools allowing pyrotechnicians to visualize how high and how far their shells will travel during a show. The Pythagorean Theorem is used to find a certain initial velocity value when the other two factors are known. The Trigonometric Functions are also used to find initial velocity values, but are used to find vertical heights, horizontal distances and firing angles as well. Pyrotechnicians use these mathematical methods along with charts, graphs and computer programs derived from them to plan their

Continued from page 8 impressive displays. They must also consider shell burst sizes when planning shows. The bigger the shell size the larger the effect so they must know how big certain bursts are when compared to others when choreographing a show. Shell burst sizes are usually about 45 feet in diameter for every inch in shell size. A two-inch shell produces a burst of 90 feet but an eightinch shell produces a burst about 360 feet across. Fireworks Chemistry Fireworks are usually made out of the following items: an oxidizing agent, a reducing agent, a coloring agent, binders and regulators. These mixed together are what make up the basic fireworks. ■ Oxidizers - The first thing in a firework is the oxidizing agent. These produce the oxygen to burn the mixture. Oxidizers are usually nitrates, chlorates or perchlorates. ■ Reducing Agents - The second element of fireworks are reducing agents. The reducing agents burn the oxygen produced by the oxidizers to produce hot gasses. Two examples of reducing agents are Sulfur and Charcoal (carbon). The agents are used to control the speeding or slowing of the reaction, with metals often added to speed the reaction. The finer the powder, the faster the reaction. ■ Binders - The fourth element of fireworks are the binders. Binders hold the mixture in a lump. This lump is a star. In order to form a star, two main elements are used. These are dextrine dampened by water, or a shellac compound dampened by alcohol. Fireworks Construction The first job a pyrotechnician has after planning the show is selecting and/or building the actual aerial shells that will be used. This is a very involved and time-consuming process, but it is crucial to the end result that the spectators will take in. Firework shells are not what you typically see illustrated as rockets. There are two types of shells that are constructed today. One is the old- fashioned Oriental style spheri-

cal (or ball) shell, and the Americanstyle cylindrical shell. They both contain a lift charge for propulsion of the shell into the air, a time fuse leading to the burst charge that explodes the shell, and the actual burst stars that are packed into the shell and produce the brilliant colors during the show. Each type of shell is available in the following sizes: 2-inch through 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, 12-inch, 16inch, 24-inch and 36-inch. Sizes from 16 inches and up are only used during very large scale shows, are extremely expensive and require a huge safe zone to fire from. At a cost of $500 each, a 10-inch shell is the largest that you will see displayed at the Isabella Lake fireworks show. The difference between cylinder and ball shell types is basically price and performance. Ball shells are easier to manufacture, but aren’t capable of carrying as many burst stars as cylinder style shells of the same dimensions. The abbreviated process of constructing a spherical aerial shell is to first make the form used to construct the shell around. Some pyrotechnicians use styrofoam balls fitted with a thin layer of plastic so that the shell paper won’t stick to it. This enables the forms to be used more than once. The next step is applying the actual shell material around the form. Most pyrotechnicians use recycled newspaper to do this. They basically cut the newspaper into thin strips and paste it around the form with either Elmer’s glue or wheat paste. It is a process much like working with paper mache. Once the form is covered with appropriate number of layers - and the larger the shell, the more layers - it is placed in an oven for three or four hours for drying. After the paper shells are dried, they’re cut in half for the loading of the star burst material. Once the sphere is cut in half it can be loaded with the burst stars and pasted back together and ready for firing. This should provide you the insight into what kind of work goes into constructing the shells fired at your Isabella Lake Fireworks Spectacular show. Enjoy!

Camp 9 Recreation Area offers several individual and group campsites for overnight and day-use camping. Camp 9 has potable water in spigots, a dump station and a fish cleaning station. This campground is located off Sierra Way along the northeast shoreline of Isabella Lake. Hanning Flat and Stine Cove are open for shoreline camping with no fees; these are dispersed campgrounds with no potable water. Lakeshore camping is permitted at Auxiliary Dam, Old Isabella Road and South Fork Recreation Area with the purchase of a Southern Sierra Pass. Visitors can obtain their pass at various locations around the Valley at a cost of $10 per vehicle for overnight and day-use or purchase a $50 annual pass. ■ Reservations The California Land Management managed campsites can be reserved at www.recreation.gov or by calling 877-444-6777.
The sites around Isabella Lake include Tillie Creek, Live Oak North and South, Boulder Gulch, Hungry Gulch, French Gulch, Pioneer Point and Paradise Cove and along the Upper Kern River include Headquarters, Camp 3, Hospital Flat, Goldledge and Fairview. Limestone is first-come, first served and has no potable water. And on the Lower River, Hobo Campground is first, come first served; while Sandy Flat can be reserved through CLM. ■ Undeveloped Camping Several “undeveloped” camping areas along the Upper Kern River are available free of charge. Campsites and cooking areas need to be back at least 25 feet from the river’s edge. Again due to extreme fire conditions, camp stoves are permitted only! Visitors need to keep the area free of litter and are encouraged to use existing sanitation facilities. ■ Water Safety The Kern River is can be especially dangerous this time of year. Although river flows appear to be low, strong currents may still exist and we do not encourage visitors to go into the river. Visitors are encouraged to wear a personal floatation device at all times when on or around the lake and river. Do not leave children unattended by the edge of the water.

Fireworks and pets
Protect pets during 4th Shakira Croce, PETA Courier Extra Fireworks are meant to represent “bombs bursting in air” - and to dogs and cats, that’s exactly what they sound like. When animals hear the cracks and booms in the sky on the 4th of July, many of them panic and jump over fences, break chains or even jump through glass windows in an effort to escape the terrifying sounds. Many animals who run in fear are never found. After fireworks displays, animal shelters nationwide report an increase in the number of lost cats and dogs, many of whom are found with bloody paws from running, torn skin from breaking through wooden fences, or other serious injuries. Some animals are hit by cars or killed in other ways as they flee. PETA encourages people to take the following precautions to ensure the comfort and safety of
their animal companions during fireworks: ■ Keep cats and dogs indoors during fireworks displays, and if possible, ■ Leave your animals at home during the celebrations - never take them with you to watch fireworks. ■ Never leave animals tethered or chained outside-they can hang themselves if they leap over a fence while trying to run from the noise. ■ Close your windows and curtains. Turn on a radio that’s tuned to a classical-music station, or turn on the TV to help drown out the sound of the fireworks. ■ Other ways to keep dogs and cats calm include specially formulated CDs from Through a Dog’s Ear and a natural supplement called melatonin that is available at your local health food store. ■ Make sure that your animal companion is wearing a collar or a harness with an up-to-date identification tag - just in case.
Special fireworks reporting: The Kern County Fire Department, along with local law enforcement agencies will be conducting strict enforcement of fireworks laws this 4th of July holiday. In 2012, the task force issued 54 citations and 24 by station personnel and the Fireworks Task Force hotline received 658 calls. There is a $1500 fine for the possession, sale, transport of legal/illegal fireworks and a $500 fine for improper use and sale. In addition to fines, criminal charges may be filed. The Fireworks Task Force Hotline is 661-868-6070, and runs from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., July 3rd and 4th. The nonemergency number outside that time frame is 661-324-6551.

ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Your persistence pays off as the information you demanded starts to come through. The pace is slow at first, but it begins to speed up as the week draws to a close. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unwelcome bit of news jolts the Bovine, who would prefer that things proceed smoothly. But it’s at most a momentary setback. A Leo brings more welcome tidings. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You need to pay close attention to the details before making a commitment. Don’t accept anything that seems questionable, unless you get an answer that can be backed up. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations on getting that project up and running. But as exciting as it is, don’t let it carry you away. Make sure you set aside time to spend with family and friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be sure you’re part of the discussion involving your suggestions. Your presence ensures that you can defend your work, if necessary. It also helps gain your colleagues’ support. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept.22) A misunderstanding needs to be dealt with, or it can grow and
cause more problems later on. Be the bigger person and take the first step to clear the air. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Set some strict guidelines for yourself so your heavier-than-usual work schedule doesn't overwhelm the time you need to spend relaxing with loved ones. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might feel a little uncomfortable being among people you hardly know. But remember that today’s strangers can become tomorrow’s valuable contacts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Reward yourself for all that you've accomplished despite some annoying situations that got in your way. Enjoy a well-earned getaway with someone special. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Realizing that someone else is taking credit for what you did is bound to get anyone’s goat, but especially yours. Be patient. The truth soon comes out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Forget about opposites attracting. What you need is to find someone who thinks like you and will support your ideas, even if others say they’re too radical. PISCES (Feb. 19 to Marc.20) Workplace problems can affect your financial plans. Be prudent and avoid running up bills or making commitments until things begin to ease up by the 26th. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

"Remembering Jerry" Independence Day is here again, this is the day that I lost you, my husband, my best friend. Today it has been a year, since I kissed you and waved you off in the boat that day. I never knew how drastically our lives would change, when you took the kids out on the water to play. You gave your life keeping all the babies safe, and we are all back here to honor you today in the same place. You are truly missed the world is not the same without you, but I am here lakeside keeping our traditions true, back here at the water celebrating birthdays and now the memorial of you. Forever you are missed by family and friends, all of us loving you, that will never end. Not a day goes by that your name doesn't cross someone's lips, and the memory of your smile will never escape the minds it has etched. Tonight we will raise our glasses high to the sky and our hearts will swell with tears and pride, and from now on you will be remembered every Fourth of July.
