Vegter, the purpose of the activity was to accomplish a Supplemental Type Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration for float
operations. This helicopter is privately owned by someone out of the Orange County Airport. It was serial number 4. They have built 475 of this model. nature
The Robinson R66 Turbine features a twobladed rotor system, Tbar cyclic, and an open interior cabin configuration. Notable differences from other Robinson designs are the R66's increased reserve power, improved altitude performance, fifth seat, and large baggage compartment. Popular upgrades including HID landing lights, leather seats, and a stereo audio control panel are standard in the R66. The R66 received both type and production certificates from the Federal Aviation Administration on October 25, 2010.

For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers. - Duitsman 1Timothy 4:10 At first glance, the terms "labor and strive" would appear antithetical to our Christian experience. Namely, grace. This most precious commodity assures the Father's favor, and works eternal salvation has nothing whatsoever to do with our capacities. What a curious balance we are asked to strike as believers in Jesus where on the one hand our souls are to enjoy a most perfect repose as we allow salvation to be worked in us by grace alone. Yet on the other hand, it is clear that there is something of a different response from us who understand even in small measure this grace that has been applied to us and the relationship with the Father
we have gained. Then this is where the "laboring and striving" commences and life is consumed by what can only be described as effort and toil as the nature of God is laboriously carved back into our souls. When eternity has been decided through faith in the gracious work of Jesus Christ, all the stuff of life can go into bringing that grace to bear upon our lives if we will let it. "All things work together for good . . . " means the effort of life's existence, the sweat of our brow that moves us from one end of life to another has application in Godliness if we will allow it. Not working for heaven, but working through life, with the result that the Father's heart is better seen by us and better worked in us through the path that is laid out before us. Embrace life as it comes, believe there are eternal deposits put in place by simply trusting Jesus for grace to move through each day, and continue the journey with knowledge that the journey itself can work a glory that only heaven will tell.

Dan Schlensker, Courier Columnist It happened very quietly. In its apparent annual migration North and South, on about the 21st of September the sun passed directly over the Schlensker Equator making the daytime and nighttime hours equal. Hence, the Autumnal Equinox and the beginning of Fall. In the so-called high-sun-season (summer) the days were longer than the nights. Now, in the commencing low-sun-season (winter) the nights will be longer than the days until about March 21. That phenomenon parallels the brighter, happier times in our lives, which alternate with the darker, less joy-filled periods. The psalmist understood that cycle when he wrote, "Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning" (Psalm 30:5). And that's even more certain than the sun continuing its annual journey in the coming year! This time of year brings about the most rapid change in day length. During the Equinoxes, we experience the biggest loss or gain of daylight or nighttime minutes from one day to the next, losing several minutes of daylight every 24 hours! Change is one of the most challenging issues in our lives. It's been said that change is the only thing you can really count on. But we humans
like security. We need to be able to trust in something. We need stability in our lives. Some would argue that the laws of nature are the changeless thing in the world. Even beyond that stability, though, is the God of Nature, the Creator of Nature. God said of himself, "I the LORD do not change" (Malachi 3:6). The writer to the Hebrews asserts, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever" (Hebrews 13:8). God is the only entity, Who is totally and completely dependable! And He has even suspended or superseded the Laws of Nature from time to time! Therefore, His promises are sure! That's an important fact, because it was after another Fall - the one in the Garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve rebelled against, and disobeyed their Creator - that God made His promise that He, Himself, would solve mankind's problem with sin, and He would restore their broken relationship with Him. He did that about 4000 years later when He enfleshed Himself in the person of Jesus, the Christ, and, through His suffering and death on the cross, paid - on mankind's behalf - the penalty price for all their rebelliousness. So even as Fall will eventually give way to the return of the sun, the Fall has given way to the coming of the Son (of God), Who has brought to all who believe eternal spring. Dan Schlensker is pastor of Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Lake Isabella.

Fire restrictions changed due to cooler weather In response to the decreasing fire danger, the Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument announced a change in fire restrictions effective Thursday September 26th. This includes forestlands in Tulare and Kern counties. Campfires and charcoal barbecues are now allowed in designated sites less vulnerable to wildfire, including most developed campgrounds. These locations are posted at Forest offices and listed on the Forest Servive website fs.usda.gov/sequoia/. Stoves and lanterns with shut-off valves that use gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel are allowed anywhere. In all cases, the visitor must possess a valid California Campfire Permit. Free campfire permits are available online and at Forest Service offices. Fire officials expect these restrictions to remain in place until measurable precipitation falls in the area.
Kern River Ranger District fall update Forest Service and CLM will begin reducing the sites available for camping as demand drops in the fall. Both the Kernville and the Lake Isabella Offices will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to check for current conditions. Black Gulch South and Hobo, Hungry Gulch and Boulder Gulch, Camp 3, Hospital Flat, and Goldledge Campgrounds are closed for the season as are Upper and, Lower Richbar, Live Oak, and Miracle day use sites. Camp 9 will remain open. Its family campsites are first come, first served; and its group campsites can be reservations through recreation.gov. Auxiliary Dam, Old Isabella, and South Fork Recreation will stay open through the winter with the purchase of an interagency pass or a Southern Sierra Pass. Tillie Creek Campground, day use, and group campsites will remain open for the winter, along with French Gulch group campsite, Democrat, Delonegha day use, and Sandy Flat Campground and Paradise Cove Campground. Limestone will close at the end of October, and Fairview will close at the end of November with Headquarters open throughout the year.

PICKS OF THE WEEK “The Colony” (NR) — In an icy post-apocalyptic future where Earth is in a new ice age, the few surviving humans live in underground colonies scattered across the wasteland. Briggs (Laurence Fishburne) leads Colony 7, and tries to keep some compassion in his rule. Mason (Bill Paxton) is a survival-of-the-fittest type of guy. A distress signal from another colony blows open the conflict between the two. Turns out that the neighboring colony is full of cannibals waiting to chase and eat the characters the audience doesn't care about. Too bad the rest of the movie plays out like a dispassionate zombie movie. “The Heat” (R) — A wisemouth FBI agent (Sandra Bullock) and a bull-in-china-shop Boston police officer (Melissa McCarthy) are stuck together to take down some crime. They annoy and offend everyone within hearing range, but they get the job done. The familiar landscape of R-rated buddy cop movies gets a slight update from director Paul Feig ("Bridesmaids"), who sticks to genre conventions on everything except gender. The jokes hit hard on the loudand-inappropriate button. While the script hands them stale material, McCarthy and Bullock almost make up for it with comedy chem-

istry. McCarthy has established herself as a boisterous screen presence, and Bullock has a way of contributing without trying to match her partner's explosiveness. “Pacific Rim” (PG-13) — Giant monsters from a rift in the ocean are terrorizing the human world. The only (certainly the coolest) way to stop them is to deploy a fleet of giant fighting robots -- equipped with missiles, mega-swords and giant blenders for hands. Of course, the robots need human pilots who have to mind-meld in order to steer them properly. If you can sit through "Transformers," then you can at least give this one a shot. Guillermo Del Toro directed the film, and he's a director who can handle giant robot monster battles with care. While the director supplies an extra sense of wonder to the visuals, don't look for big meaning in the script. The only deep part of this movie is the ocean that spawns the giant monsters, and that's OK. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Health Insurance Matters
Talking About Real Estate
ObamaCare for Kern County
Latest local market conditions
Harry P. Thal Courier Columnist The Benefits Part 5 of 5 parts. Employer Mandate Small (2 to 50 employees) business owners provide benThal efits such as health insurance to their employees for one reason. The employer plus at least one w-2 employee qualifies as a "group". Husband and wife teams will no longer be recognized as a "group as they are currently, but will be able to purchase individual or family plans that are "guaranteed issue". It makes good business sense. By offering high-quality insurance, employers have a competitive advantage in the recruiting and retention of healthier, happier employees. There are plans that have been developed to serve employers with two to 50 eligible employees. There is no requirement for the small employer to offer health insurance in 2014. Beginning in 2015 business with more than 50 full time equivalent employees may pay a penalty for employees who are full time (work over 30 hours a week). I am cautioning businesses with greater than 35 full time employees now who have part time or seasonal employees as well, to check with your health insurance professional agent, as there may be pitfalls you need to be aware of. For those for profit employers who have 25 or fewer full time equivalent
(FTE) employees and provide a qualified health insurance plan purchased though a certified broker or directly through the SHOP Exchange, they may qualify in 2014 for a tax credit paying up to 50% of the business's cost of health insurance. The business will have control of the level of coverage to be offered. The employee will have the ability to select from various plans within that employer chosen category. The business owner will also be able to make the decision if they want to offer dependent coverage through the "group" or they can elect to have the employee seek coverage for his/her dependents through the individual market. Depending on income level, family members may qualify for subsidized coverage through the Covered California marketplace or perhaps qualify for subsidized or no-cost coverage through Medi-Cal. All the rules are not yet known. Most insurance agents are not health insurance specialists, and fewer are certified to offer plans through the Covered California Health Insurance Exchange or SHOP. Assistance is available for Covered California on the telephone or through their website or from a Certified Covered California insurance agent. Harry P. Thal, MA, is a licensed insurance broker in California (0621106) He is a member of the Society of Certified Senior Advisors and Past-President of the Kern Association of Health Underwriters. Harry is on the National Assoc. of Health Underwriters Medicare Advisory Board. He may be reached at 760-376-2100, firstname.lastname@example.org or www.harrythal.com.
Matt Freeman Courier Columnist With the cool weather finally upon us, people are out and about again and buying homes! It has been a pretty good year overall for both Freeman our brokerage and others locally, much better than it was in the "dark days" as we call them of 2009-2011. Sales overall are up for the year compared to last year especially for stick built homes which is our largest local market segment. So far this year approx 38 million dollars worth of real estate has been sold in the Valley. Compared with 32 million last year, that is a good thing! However the Valley has not seen much in the way of value appreciation just increased price stability and local demand. We have a long way to go before we can call this market normal. There is still a whole bunch of inventory out there that has been listed for a long time in the manufactured home, mobile home and vacant land segments. Vacant land in particular just has not been moving too well this year although there have been some large individual sales concerning larger parcels. This is because we have not seen a resumption of building. Until new homes start going in up here locally again, look for lot and land listings to take a long time to sell. The manufactured home market has seen sales gains this year locally but
not as much as the stick built home segment of the market. This is due to both a glut of listing inventory and the fact that it is a bit harder to get a loan on a manufactured home than it is a regular home. Despite this fact, manufactured homes are typically a great deal because you get a lot for your money and often more land for less money as well than with a conventional house. Statewide, there is one sobering statistic to remember. The volume of sales has increased for the year, and the value of homes statewide have gone up approx ten percent. However when a survey was done of all of the purchase activity for the last twelve months, approximately 40 percent of all residential home purchases were bought with cash, meaning investors are driving the market at this point. We need that figure to drop in order for this market to stay healthy, because the single biggest market segment by far is residential primary residence buyers and that segment has stayed flat both because of still tight lending guidelines and an economy that is still barely recovering. Don't let the news fool you; the unemployment rate is still high, and for folks under 30 years old, it is extremely high, approaching twenty percent in California. So are we seeing market improvement? Yes we are. Is it gonna stay with us? Well, we need this economy to get healthy. Only time will tell.

from pages 8 & 9
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) A bid for you to step in and take over an incomplete project could prove to be an excellent learning experience that you can take with you when a new opportunity opens up. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It's a good time for socializing, both with family and with friends. Your aspects also favor developing new relationships, any or all of which might become especially meaningful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your success in handling a recent difficult situation prompts a request to handle another workplace problem. But this is one you should accept only if you get all of the relevant facts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) New information about a past decision raises some unsettling questions from an old friend. Be prepared to explain your actions fully and, if necessary, to make adjustments. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is not a good time to share personal secrets, even with someone you've known for a long while. What you don't reveal now won't come back to haunt you later. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Pushing yourself to meet a project deadline is admirable. But be careful not to leave out important details in your rush to complete your work and send it off. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch that
you don't take on more than you can handle when offering to help someone with a personal problem. There might be hidden factors you weren't told about. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) That major move you've been considering could come sooner than you expected. Make sure you'll be ready with the facts you need when decision time arrives. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Languishing relationships can benefit from a break in routine. Get out of the rut and do something new and maybe more than a little unpredictable this weekend. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Although you don't think of yourself as a role model, your ability to make a tough decision at this time sets an example for others, who admire your courage. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You need to move any remaining obstacles out of your way before you can take on a new challenge. Seek advice from close, trusted friends and associates. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A career change appears increasingly likely to happen during the next several weeks. It's a good idea to start now to prepare, so you can be ready to make the move when the time comes. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said Sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust.

Advanced Reconveyance, Inc., As Trustee, 43545 17th Street W., Ste 503, Lancaster, CA 93534, 661-9455525, 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 13-2269. 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.

Through the Universe
My favorite meteor shower Casey James Courier Columnist This month on October 21st, we are going to get to see one of my favorite meteor showers of the year, the Orionids, one of James the most prolific showers of the year. At peak activity it will produce about 25 meteors per hour and may produce up to 70. The Orionids come from the celestial debris of the well-known, Halley's Comet; though Halley's won't be seen again until sometime in the year 2061. On October 18th, we will get to see a Penumbral Eclipse which occurs when the Moon passes through the Earth's partial shadow, or penumbra. During this type of eclipse the Moon will darken slightly but not completely. The eclipse for us will occur roughly at 4:50 p.m., if you would like a better view of Earth's shadow on our nearest neighbor you can use a pair of binoculars or even a small telescope. I wouldn't miss this because the next eclipse isn't until April 2014. Also this month on October 1st NASA turned 55 years old but is experiencing a near total closure due to the Government shutdown. Mission control will remain open so NASA Astronauts Karen Nyberg and Mike Hopkins currently aboard the International Space Station will not be affected. All satellites and spacecraft currently in space will be maintained though the amazing photos and other data will have to be safeguarded for the duration of the shutdown, while
future launches will be canceled and postponed as work on these projects will come to a stop. Of the 18,000 NASA employees only 600 will continue working as NASA has a fleet of spacecraft and rovers exploring the solar system and interstellar space. Many satellites are in orbit around the Earth to study our home planet, while other probes are orbiting the Moon, Mercury, Mars and Saturn. The Mars rovers, Curiosity and Opportunity are driving across the surface of Mars while Hubble and the Spitzer Space Telescope are looking deep into the universe. Observatories, such as the Solar Dynamics Observatory are studying the surface of the sun. Other spacecraft's are simply in transit, the gap between the planets. NASA's New Horizons spacecraft which launched in 2006 is streaking across the outer solar system for a 2015 flyby of Pluto. Then there is Voyager 1, the farthest manmade spacecraft has ever traveled in history. It entered interstellar space in August 2013 and is now 11.7 billion miles from Earth, far away from the political disputes surrounding the government shutdown on Tuesday. Also for the month of October I will be the featured artist in the Kern River Valley Museum. I will be showing my Astrophotographer and you will be able to see the universe through my eyes. You can come into the museum for the entire month of October and see my photos of the stars and space. I hope to meet and hear from all of you while I'm there. So as always this is your dark skies, through the universe.
