ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You could have some problems with doubters who don't share your enthusiasm for that new project you're supporting. But use the facts to win them over to your side.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A family situation takes an unwelcome turn. While others might be looking around for answers, you'll soon sort it all out logically, and the matter will be resolved.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Someone is impressed by how you managed to get your case to the right people, despite attempts to keep you on the outside looking in. Expect to hear more about this.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Someone might try to create doubt about your reliability for his or her own agenda. But your reputation and your colleagues' longstanding faith in you saves the day.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Good for you -- your gift for seeing both sides of a dispute helps cool down a potentially explosive workplace situation. Some family-related tensions also begin to ease.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An unexpected change of plans forces you to come up with an alternative by the end of the week. Look for colleagues to offer valuable suggestions.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your determination to prove yourself is put to the test by midweek. Counting all the positive factors you have going for you will help you get over your self-doubt. Good luck.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Nothing upsets the Goat as much as broken promises. But before you vent your anger, consider that this could ultimately prove to be a blessing in disguise.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Several co-workers are still determined to resist coming over to your side. But don't let that stop you from presenting your proposal to the people who count. Stay the course.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An old workplace problem you thought you had solved for good resurfaces. But this time, co-workers will take a more active role in helping you deal with it.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might prefer to be taken on faith and not have to prove yourself. But the truth is, you need to offer more facts if you hope to persuade people to accept what you say.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be careful not to be misled by a negative reaction to one of your more important projects. If you believe in it, then it has worth and is, therefore, worth staying with.

Tehachapi celebrates St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day at the library Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with incredible live music at the Tehachapi branch of the Kern County Library on Saturday, March 16 at 2 p.m. There is no charge for the event.
We’ll All Be Irish at Fiddlers Crossing What would St. Patrick’s Day be without Irish music? On Sunday, March 17, at 3:00 p.m., Fiddlers Crossing will party like it’s A.D. 386 – well, actually, maybe some centuries later than the year of St. Paddy’s birth. There will be no snakes. Instead, there will be plenty of Irish tunes and songs played on fiddle, cello,
harp, guitar and other instruments by local musicians. Some of the members of Paint a Rose and Will James, two popular bands that used to play Celtic music locally, will join together in what they are calling for this occasion, “Wilted Rose,” to play tunes and songs from the gig books of both bands. The players will include Jim O’Davis, “Wee Davy” O’Gamble, Gobnit Ni Flaithimhin (aka Debby Hand), Dave O’Brown and Rick O’Morgan. They will be joined on some tunes by fiddler Arnon O’Hurwitz. Russell and Lindsay O’Carlson will also be on hand for some Irish harp tunes, and Susie O’Hastings will open the program with Irish tunes on her hammered dulcimer. Wear your green, bring your voices and come join the party! Tickets are $10, available at Mountain Music, next to the venue, and at the Apple Shed. Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 East F Street, in Downtown Tehachapi at Robinson Street. As always, coffee and goodies are included in the ticket price. A $1 fee is
added to each ticket paid by credit card, which can be used at Mountain Music or over the phone by calling 661-822-1753.
Community Congregational Church The Tehachapi Community Congregational Church will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday, March 17, at noon, immediately following worship service that begins at 10:30 a.m. The community is invited to join this event, which will be held in the Friendship Hall and consists of entertainment with bagpipes, Irish songs and stories, and a lunch of corned beef with all the trimmings, all for a small donation. The Tehachapi Community Congregational Church is located at the corner of Green and “E” Streets. All are welcome to attend and volunteers for entertainment are accpeted. Please call Jim or Linda at 821-0493 or the church office at 8224443 to make reservations for the meal or for more information.

Dave Stamey to perform at Fiddlers Crossing
PHOTO COURTESY OF DAVE STAMEY
Cowboy entertainer Dave Stamey will perform two concerts, 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., on March 24, at Fiddlers Crossing, 206 East “F” St. Cowboys and Indians Magazine has called Dave Stamey “the Charley Russell of Western Music.” Western Horseman Magazine has declared his “Vaquero Song” to be one of the greatest Western songs of all time. In 2010 True West Magazine named him Best Living Western Solo Musician. Cowboy entertainer Dave Stamey has made several trips to
Tehachapi. He played to a sold-out crowd in Fiddler's Crossing last year, and with ticket sales again brisk this year, he will play two concerts on Sunday, March 24. A matinee will begin and 3 p.m., and an evening show at 7:30 p.m. Doors open one-half hour before each show. Stamey is one of the most popular singersongwriters on the cowboy circuit today. Before
becoming a full-time musician, he has been a cowboy, a mule packer, and a dude wrangler. As a singer, he has been voted three times the Entertainer of the Year and Male Performer of the Year by the Western Music Association received the Will Roger Award from the Academy of Western Artists. He has delighted audiences in 20 states, and finds that he prefers this to being stomped by angry horses. Tickets $20 and are available at Mountain Music, next to the venue, and at the Apple Shed. A $1 fee is added to each ticket paid by credit card, which can be used at Mountain Music or over the phone by calling 661-822-1753.

’Tenants’ opens March 15 Tom Misuraca's "Tenants" opens Friday night at the Beekay Theatre with performances every weekend through March 31. According to Ruthanne Jennings of the Tehachapi Community Theatre, the show is ready to go with a set that has a welcoming, warm feel to it, as that of a home. Van Roberts once again has given the Tehachapi Community Theatre another great set for the actors to blend their characters on with ease, she said. Director Tom Misuraca and Shanan Harrell, along with the entire cast will be available after the opening night performance on March 15 to share their backstage secrets and talk about whatever audience members may wonder about. Michael Gruett plays Arlo Cuthbirt, the apartment manager, and Monica Nadon plays Desdemona Christmas, a long lost soap opera star who chronically confuses her past character with the reality of today. The cast also includes Ashley Rasmussen, Garret Lawrence, Heather Ringle, Rick Gould and Spencer James.

Health & Fitness Ask the Doctor
Men can also get urinary tract infections BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Everything I read about urinary tract infections deals with women, including what you write. I am a 35-year-old man, and I just had a week of antibiotics for a urinary tract infection. Why is there this bias in dealing with female urinary infections over male infections? -- J.F. ANSWER: The urinary tract infection we're talking about is bladder infection, cystitis (sisTIE-tiss). Both men and women come down with bladder infections, but the number of women who develop such an infection is far, far larger than is the number of
men -- 30 times the number of men. The main reason for this is an anatomical one. The female urethra, the tube that empties the bladder, is much shorter than the male urethra. That allows bacteria to make their way into the female bladder with relative ease. Furthermore, sexual relations force bacteria into the female urethra, something that doesn't happen in men. People describe cystitis as a burning pain when passing urine. The infection makes a person
want to empty the bladder frequently, and it's a task that has to be taken care of quickly. At older ages, men develop almost as many bladder infections as do women. That's because of prostate enlargement. An enlarged prostate gland makes complete emptying of the bladder impossible. Urine stagnates there and sets up an environment that favors bacterial growth. Don't feel left out because you have had only one bladder infection. Recurrent bladder infections are truly unusual for men. If a man were to develop one bladder infection after another, then his doctor would have to look for
conditions that lead to repeated infections. Diabetes is one. So is Crohn's disease, an inflammation of the digestive tract. The inflammation fosters the development of a tunnel between the bladder and the inflamed area of the tract. Bacteria have free access to the bladder. These are only two examples of why cystitis recurs in few men. The booklet on urinary tract infections explains this common malady in detail and its treatment. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 1204W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6
Let’s Talk Mental Health
Juvenile injustice: a societal crisis BY OSCAR WRIGHT, PH.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER
The crisis is devastating and undeniable: An invisible population of youth lingering between the juvenile justice and mental health systems with unprecedented unmet needs. Current studies increasingly validate the fact that 65 percent to 70 percent of youth in the juvenile justice system meet criteria for a diagnosable mental health disorder. According to recent studies, the majority of these youth have multiple diagnoses. Many families and children who seek our help and guidance embrace the principles of the Coalition for Juvenile Justice: • Community-based and culturally-sensitive mental health services should be accessible to all youth and families in need. • Young offenders with mental health problems should receive appropriate and adequate services in the juvenile court system. • Families should never have to surrender innocent children to the juvenile court system just to get mental health treatment. As the mental health crisis escalates in communities across California, fundamental questions are being asked such as: • How many mentally ill children are in the juvenile justice system? • How many entered that system because they could not get
help earlier? • What kind of mental health care do they get once in the system? • How many of them would have ended up in juvenile justice despite receiving adequate attention from other agencies? As the answers to these questions begin to trickle in, we are informed by recent studies made available through the Coalition that: • 36 percent of respondents to a national survey said their children were in the juvenile court system because mental health services outside of the system were unavailable to them. • 23 percent of respondents to a national survey were told that they would have to relinquish custody of their children to get needed mental health services. • 20 percent of respondents to a national survey said that they relinquished custody of their children to get needed mental health services. • Among youth that receive structured, meaningful, and sensitive mental health treatment, recidivism rates are 25 percent lower than those among untreated control groups. • The most successful mental health programs—those that treat
young offenders in their families and communities—reduce recidivism up to 80 percent. • Roughly two-thirds of all dollars spent on the juvenile court system go to housing delinquent and mentally ill youth in costly lockups that provide little more than warehousing. While at different times, a single agency may have primary responsibility, these youths are the community’s responsibility and all responses developed for them should be collaborative in nature, reflecting the input and involvement of the mental health, juvenile justice and other systems. United Advocates for Children and Families was awarded funds by the Zellerbach Family Foundation to develop a training course specifically for families and youth to provide information allowing them to navigate the two systems. Best practices and greater collaboration between the two systems and the community-at-large must be established with a sense of urgency. To do anything less would be ‘juvenile injustice’ at its worse. I'd like to hear from readers. Send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. OSCAR WRIGHT, PH.D, is the CEO of United Advocates for Children and Families (UACF), a statewide nonprofit that provides support to parent, families, children and youth experiencing mental illness.
Canada with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I take Coumadin because of atrial fibrillation. I've taken it for 13 years. Never in all those years has anyone, doctor or nurse, told me not to eat lettuce or other salad greens. My cousin just did. She wasn't sure why, but she said those foods mess up Coumadin. I have regular blood tests. None has shown that my Coumadin level needs adjusting. What is this green vegetable taboo? -- M.O. ANSWER: Coumadin thins blood (prevents clots from forming) by decreasing the production of vitamin K. Green,
leafy vegetables -spinach, lettuce, Brussels sprouts -- are a rich source of vitamin K. If a person on Coumadin splurges on these vegetables, he or she could block the action of Coumadin. You have gone 13 years taking it. Your blood tests have shown that your diet is not affecting Coumadin's action. You can eat whatever you wish. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Diabetes and Eyes: Your vision is talking to you Diabetes is a serious disease that can affect many aspects of the body -- the heart and kidneys, blood circulation and even the eyes. In fact, diabetic eye disease increased in prevalence by 89 percent between 2000 and 2010 and is a leading cause of blindness among American adults. Despite this, vision care is often overlooked by people with diabetes as they work to manage the many other health problems the disease can cause. According to a survey by the American Optometric Association, 55 percent of people are unaware that diabetic eye disease often has no visual signs or symptoms. Additionally, 44 percent of Americans don't know that a person with diabetes should have a comprehensive eye exam once a year, including a retina (dilated) eye exam. Yet, these exams are the only way to diagnose serious eye diseases associated with diabetes at its early stage. Regular retina eye exams are critical for early detection and treatment of these progressive eye diseases that often begin without warning. The longer a person has diabetes, the higher their
risk for eye disease. Over time, diabetes may cause damage to the blood vessels in the back of the eye, known as diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to diabetic macular edema (DME). DME occurs when the damaged blood vessels leak fluid and cause swelling. Although symptoms are not always present, this swelling can cause blurred vision, double vision and patches in vision, which may appear as small black dots or lines "floating" across the front of the eye. Approximately 26 million Americans have diabetes and may be at risk for DME. More than 560,000 Americans have DME. Yet, approximately 55 percent are unaware that they have the disease. African Americans and Hispanics over the age of 40 are also at a higher risk for DME. Prevent Vision Loss • Getting an annual retina eye exam is the best way to help detect changes in vision • Don't wait -- make an appointment with a retina specialist today • For more information about DME and tips for healthy vision, visit www.DiabetesEyeCheck.org.

Lang’s Whim Wham exhibit continues through May 5 BY LINDA LOVENDAHL CONTRIBUTING WRITER
The Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery (now known as Lancaster Museum of Art and History or MOAH) is a great destination and what better time to visit than during a show of the work of internationally celebrated minimalist artist Gary Lang. Born in Los Angeles, Lang earned his MFA from Yale University in 1974 and has enjoyed a vibrant career with exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, United Nations Plaza in New York along with numerous gallery shows in Los Angeles, New York, Japan, Austria, France, The Netherlands and Spain, to name a few. His formal vocabulary of minimalist geometries, surface tension, color saturation, energetic rhythm, and the basic element of the line is strikingly sensuous while calmly meditative. The exhibition openthis week with a public reception on Saturday, March 16, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and continues through May 5. MOAH was officially dedicated on January 18, 1986, at the Sierra Highway location. The museum's metamorphosis continued as construction began on the new building with a historic groundbreaking on Feb. 23, 2010. Located on the corner of Lancaster BLVD and Ehrlich Avenue, the new Lan-
Minimalist Gary Lang’s artwork will be on display at the Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery (MOAH) now through May 5.

Fish and Wildlife
Can you clarify when fishing boat limits apply? Q&As from the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife BY CARRIE WILSON CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Question: I heard this question asked on the radio last season while fishing for salmon in Monterey. The answers from mostly experienced and knowledgeable anglers were mixed. No one seemed to be certain. So here's the situation: Two anglers, both legally licensed, one rod trolling per angler, barbless hooks, one lure per line. The anglers take turns hooking up and fighting the fish. Soon they have three legal salmon on the boat. One angler has a limit, and the other angler needs one more and wants to catch his own. The question: Can the two anglers continue trolling with the two rods out? My reading of the
ocean regs is yes, they can, because there is nothing in the regs saying the angler with a limit must stop fishing while the boat/ anglers are not over limit. If the next one to hook a fish was to fill the boat limit, then the angler with the limit would not be able to even touch the rod. However, since catch and release fishing is not prohibited, both can continue to fish until the last fish is netted. Do you agree? (Dave R.) Answer: Yes, boat limits apply. Boat limit: When two or more persons that are licensed or otherwise authorized to sport fish in ocean waters off California or in the San Francisco Bay District … are angling for finfish aboard a vessel in these waters, fishing by
all authorized persons aboard may continue until boat limits of finfish are taken and possessed aboard the vessel (California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 14, section 27.60 (c )). How to become a Hunter Ed Instructor (HEI)? Question: If I am fishing with both flat and rigid types of hoop nets in one set, do I need to fill out two lines on my lobster report card (e.g. one line with a gear code for flat and one line for the non folding type?) (Dixon C.) Answer: Yes. According to California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) Environmental Scientist Travis Buck, instruction 2 on the lobster report card says "make a separate entry for each location fished and each type of gear used." You'll see under gear codes that flat hoop nets are gear #1 and
rigid hoop nets are gear #2. So create separate lines for each type of net, and record the corresponding number of lobsters retained for each type of net. Thank you for paying attention to this detail! Also, hunters and anglers are now being offered the ability to report harvest data online at: www.dfg.ca.gov/licensing/harvestreporting/. This means you will be able to enter your 2012 lobster report card data online beginning Jan. 1, 2013. Remember that report card information is due by Jan. 31. Thanks and good luck lobster fishing. Importing USDA processed black bear meat? Question:How can I sign up to become a Hunter Education Instructor? Answer: Applicants must meet the following
requirements: • Be at least 18 years of age • Successfully complete the hunter education course prior to submitting an application • No felony convictions • Completed a course of study prior to taking a supervised examination covering the basic topics of hunter education The testing process to become a certified instructor takes about two hours and applicants must score a minimum of 80 percent. After passing the exam, the volunteer will take an oath and work with an experienced instructor before leading their own class. To retain current HEI certification, an instructor must teach one class per year and attend one conference. More information on the requirements can be found at www.dfg.ca.gov/huntere d, or speak with one of our wildlife officers at

Lobster report card for two different types of traps Question: Can I bring USDA processed black bear meat into California from Colorado and Nevada from USDA plants to sell here locally? (Anshu P.) Answer: No, California Fish and Game law prohibits the sale of the pieces or parts of any bear in California, and it makes no difference if the item was a bear that was killed in California or in another state and imported into the state. (See Fish and Game Code, section 4758.) CARRIE WILSON is a marine environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

(Family Features) It takes a lot of energy to keep up with today's busy lifestyle. Between juggling work, family, friends and activities, people are often looking for something to help them keep going. Many are turning to nutritious, plant-based sources of protein, such as peanuts, to help provide long-lasting energy throughout the day. "By adding peanuts it is easy to make a proteinboosting smoothie, energy-rich waffles, better-foryou burgers, and crunchy kale chips without a lot of salt," says Jennifer Iserloh, chef and certified health coach. "This Peanut Teriyaki Turkey Burger has more ingredients than you would normally expect when building your burger, but the payoff is huge. This meal is a source of vitamins E and A, folate and plenty of heart-healthy compounds that you get from superfoods like peanuts." For more nutrition information and delicious ways to stay energized, visit www.nationalpeanutboard.org. With 7 grams per serving, peanuts have more energy-boosting protein than any nut. This, along with their more than 30 essential vitamins and nutrients, makes peanuts a superfood.

Practical Money Matters
Tax deadlines are real BY JASON ALDERMAN CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Congress could well debate the debt ceiling, tax reform and other important economic issues until the cows come home, but one thing's for sure: If you don't pay your income taxes – or at least file for an extension – by April 15, you could be in for a world of financial hurt. That's because the IRS probably won't give you a break on the penalties it levies on unpaid taxes unless you were the victim of a natural disaster, suffered death or serious illness in your immediate family, or experienced another catastrophic event. You must file your 2012 federal tax return (or request an extension) by midnight on April 15, 2013, otherwise the penalty on any taxes you owe will increase dramatically. You'll be charged an additional 5 percent of taxes owed for each full or partial month you're late, plus interest, up to a maximum penalty of 25 percent of the amount owed. (The interest rate currently charged is 3.22 percent.) If you file your return or extension request on time, however, the penalty drops tenfold to only 0.5 percent per month, plus interest. Here's how it adds up: Say you owe $2,500 in federal income tax. If you
haven't requested an extension, you would be charged an additional $125 (5 percent), plus interest, for each month you're late in paying off your bill. Had you filed for an extension, the penalty would drop to only $12.50 per month (0.5 percent). Be sure to contact the IRS early if you won't be able to pay on time so you keep as many payment options open as possible – either call 800-829-1040 or visit your local IRS office. Also check out the IRS' "Filing Late and/or Paying Late" webpage for helpful information (www.irs.gov). One way to avoid this penalty is to
pay by credit or debit card before the filing deadline. You'll pay a convenience fee, which is tax-deductible if you itemize. Fees vary depending on which payment processor you choose. (See "Pay Your Taxes by Debit or Credit Card" at www.irs.gov for details.) If you use a credit card, make sure you can pay off the balance within a few months; otherwise the accrued interest might exceed the penalty. Other payment options include: If you can pay the full amount within 120 days, you may qualify for a ShortTerm Extension. If granted, you'll still owe interest on your debt, but will

avoid the application fee for an installment agreement. If you need longer than 120 days, an Installment Agreement lets you pay off your bill in monthly installments. To apply for either, fill out an Online Payment Agreement Application at www.irs.gov or call an IRS representative at 800-829-1040. Under certain dire financial-hardship circumstances, the IRS will allow some taxpayers with annual incomes of up to $100,000 to negotiate a reduction in the amount owed through an Offer in Compromise. For step-by-step instructions, read the IRS Form 656 Booklet. If you're unable to make payments on your installment agreement or offer in compromise, call the IRS immediately for alternative payment options, which could include reducing the monthly payment to reflect your current financial condition. Also read the IRS's guide, "The What Ifs for Struggling Taxpayers," which contains helpful information on the tax impacts of different scenarios such as job loss, debt forgiveness or tapping a retirement fund.

Tips to start composting for your garden (StatePoint) It doesn’t matter if you’re a gardening novice trying to supplement your dinner table with some home-grown veggies or an entrepreneur that earns a living off the land, composting is a simple way to go green and help save the environment. You don’t have to be an environmentalist to compost, either. Compost, which is organic matter that has been decomposed and recycled and used for fertilizing soil, is great for your garden and will help reduce landfill waste. In addition, composting in your home garden will help you save money. “Using compost means your garden will be more cost-effective because you will have to spend less on fertilizers, insecticides, and fungicides for a given harvest of any crop,” says Brett L. Markham, author of “The Mini Farming Guide to Composting,” the latest in his Mini Farming book series. Across the country people are embracing the concept of self-sufficiency and preparedness, “mini farming” anywhere, from rooftop urban gardens to suburban backyards to larger land plots. Growing food is easier than ever and composting is a huge part of this movement. Markham, who also has written the bestselling “Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre” as well as mini
Composting can help improve the quality of your garden. farming guides to fermenting and vegetable gardening, offers these gardening tips to get started on composting: • Composting is a natural form of recycling, so use food waste, grass clippings, coffee grounds and even paper as compost. Just be sure to shred the paper first to speed up the process. • Start your compost pile in a convenient spot, and make sure it is semi-shaded and well-drained. • Add bulking agents such as wood chips to accelerate the breakdown of
organic materials, allowing the finished material to fully stabilize and mature through a curing process. Add leaves, straw, or hay along with grass clippings or green manures for plenty of bulk. Each layer should be no more than two inches so that the grass clippings or leaves don’t get matted down to form a layer impermeable to air. • Keep the compost moist. Either water it yourself or let rain take care of it. The compost should be moist, but not soaked. • Cover the compost pile to help retain moisture and heat. This will also help prevent the compost from being over-watered by the rain. • Turn the compost pile with a shovel or a fork to aerate the pile. It is important to water the pile as you turn it as well. Turning the pile adds oxygen to the compost which is necessary to get the most out of your pile. • Once you add the compost to your garden, you’ll be ready to start planting in two to five weeks! You can learn more about composting, mini farming, and self-sufficiency at www.MarkhamFarm.com/mainsite. Composting is the first easy step to helping the environment while growing your own food. So make the most out of your garden, and start digging!

Stop feline urinary tract problems with a clean litter box (NewsUSA) - Urinary tract problems are a common affliction among cats. Regular litter box cleaning is an important step in keeping this painful condition in check. "Cleanliness is one key to avoiding cat urinary tract problems," says veterinarian Melissa Brookshire. "Urinary tract obstructions, evidenced by straining without producing any urine, are emergency situations that require immediate veterinary
attention. Once diagnosed and treated, steps for prevention should become routine. Having a fresh, clean litter box can go a long way in preventing this affliction." Check out the following advice for hasslefree cat care and litter box help: 1. Keep the Box Clean. A big part of keeping the litter box clean is scooping clumps and solids frequently. This keeps the box fresh and increases the likelihood your cat will use it.
2. Clean Up Accidents. Clean up any "accidents" outside the litter box quickly using an enzymatic cleaner. These cleaners eliminate any scent that may encourage your cat to "use" that spot again. 3. Use Multiple Boxes.
Just say “Hey Culligan Man.”

Noteworthy ‘Insights’ lecture series begins in Bear Valley Bear Valley Springs Cultural Arts will present a series of four lectures entitled” Insights.” These presentations are designed to provide unique perspectives on topics both familiar and new. Most of the presen-
tations will be held in private homes, and all are scheduled for Sunday afternoons. The first of the series will take place on April 14, at 4 p.m. at 28741 Ridgeview Court, Bear Valley Springs. Local resi-

career that included story analyst, story editor, writer and producer. He will share observations about his change in perspective from naive professor, who believed that film was art, to his discovery that, as one of
his Hollywood mentors put it, “Movies is money.” Light refreshments will be served. Gate passes are available by calling Nancy at 821-3534. “Insights” are presented free of charge. Donations are gladly accepted.

Tehachapi Police Department reviewed by Grand Jury The Kern County Grand Jury recently released a report of the review of its Law and Justice Committee. The committee visited the Tehachapi Police Department on Dec. 4, 2012, meeting with the Chief of Police. The committee toured the facility. The Tehachapi Police Department is located at 129 E. “F” St. The department services eight square miles and a population of approximately 8,000. The department has 14 sworn officers and four reserver officers. In addition, the department employs an administrative assistant,
a records clerk and a half-time code enforcement officer. The Grand Jury committee found that the police department facility is approximately 4,400 square feet, with bids for a new 10,000 square foot facility will go out in January. The facility will be ready for occupancy by the fall of 2013. The department also currently has 12 civilian volunteer staff. The department uses the Bear Valley Springs Police dispatch service at a cost of $320,000 per year. During 2011, 15,375 service calls were received resulting in
5,849 dispatched incidents. The Tehachapi Police Department works closesly with the Stallion Springs Police, Bear Val-
On the vast grounds of the Naval Air Weapons Station, China Lake, near the Mojave Desert town of Ridgecrest, lies the largest known concentration of Native American rock art — petroglyphs — in the western hemisphere. Up in Little Petroglyph Canyon (also known as Renegade Canyon), in the Coso Mountains, are thousands of fascinating images carved into basalt, ranging from Paleo-Indian (from as early as the end of the last Ice Age) times to the late 19th century. The location of Little Petroglyph Canyon on a Navy base both presents challenges to access, and protection from vandals or looters. Access is currently limited to U.S. citizens, escorted on tours with Navyapproved guides. Tours are only allowed on a limited number of weekends in the spring and fall months and fill up quickly. The Sun Runner Magazine, a regional desert publication from Joshua Tree, is hosting its third tour to Little Petroglyph Canyon this spring, on Saturday and Sunday,
April 6 and 7. The Sun Runner's tour itinerary includes a Saturday afternoon in the northern Mojave Desert, an overnight stay in Ridgecrest, and the Little Petroglyph Canyon tour on Sunday. Tour attendees on the self-driving tour (tour attendees come from across southern California), will meet in Randsburg, just off of Highway 395. Randsburg is a historic mining town, a living ghost town in the heart of The Rand mining district. Lunch will be available at the historic Randsburg General Store. Rates for double occupancy/couples have remained the same since the last trip – $199 per person, and single occupancy rates at $249. Rates include the Little Petroglyph Tour, hotel accommodations for Saturday night, breakfast Sunday morning, Sunday boxed lunch, our Saturday itinerary, luggage storage while in the canyon, paperwork processing, and more. To book space on the tour, please visit www.thesunrunner.com.
The 15 Explorers participate in competitions throughout the state and in Washington D.C. The Tehachapi Police also have a K9 unit.
The Grand Jury committee recomended that the Tehachapi Police Department to assume dispatch services as soon as fiscally possible.
