Spring Schedule Filling Fast

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A little woolgathering is OK. But don't let that dreamy state linger beyond midweek, when you'll want to be ready to take on new workplace responsibilities.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Expect to be called on once again to act as peacemaker in a long-simmering dispute that suddenly flares up. Offer advice, but be careful to stay out of the fray.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Love rules the week for single Bovines seeking romance. Attached pairs also find new joy in their relationships. Friday should bring news about a business opportunity.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your organizational skills help you line up your priorities so that you get things done without added pressure. The weekend could hold a special surprise.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Home becomes the center of a new social whirl, as you show your talent for hosting great parties. You can expect to impress a lot of people who've never seen this side of you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) New ventures are favored. But don't launch yours before rechecking all facts and sources. Also, be sure you can rely on support from certain people.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Moon Child might have to raise those powers of persuasion a notch to get a still-wary colleague to agree to go along. Finding more facts to back up your position helps.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Don't be pushed into renegotiating an agreement, even though it might help avoid a potential impasse. Get legal advice before you sign or agree to anything.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Hold off trying to fix the blame for an apparent mishandling of a work situation. A full investigation could reveal surprising facts on how and why it really happened.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Helping others is what Aquarians do so well. But this time, someone wants to help you. Expect to hear some news that will both surprise and delight you.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your ability to find details others might overlook gives you an advantage in assessing a possibly toogood-to-be-true offer. A trusted colleague has advice.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Things go so swimmingly that you're tempted to take on more tasks. Best advice: Finish what you have now, then enjoy a well-earned relaxing weekend.

Fifth Annual ACS Bark For Life planned for downtown on April 27 DUANA PERA CONTRIBUTING WRITER

For Barb Villasenor and Jill Greene, the American Cancer Society Bark For Life event is a testament to our commitment to our four legged friends. This dynamic duo has planned a barktastic event and wants to welcome everyone to come down and join in the canine companion celebration on April 27th starting at 9 AM in Railroad Park. “Animals get cancer just like humans,” Barb will always say to anyone interested in talking about her favorite Relay For Life event. “My dog Keesha died of stomach cancer seven years ago and it was so hard to go through, so I decided to start BFL here in Tehachapi in honor of my beloved dog.” In 2009 she did exactly what her heart told her to do; she organized and held the 1 st Annual Bark For Life in Tehachapi, and hasn’t missed a year since. “My dog Pudge also passed away from cancer,” said Jill as she reminisced about her best friend. “She loved me unconditionally, she was my walking partner, and my sounding board; I miss her every day.”

COVER AND PHOTO ABOVE BY JILL GREENE

Participating pups proudly paraded along the sidewalks of downtown Teachapi, helping to raise awareness and funds, during last year’s “Bark for Life” event. The cost is $15 per participant and it all goes to the ACS Relay For Life event which will be held July 13-14 at Jacobsen Junior High School, Coy Burnett Field. The first 100 registered participants will receive a Doggie Bag of doglicious treats! There will also be prizes for Best Dressed Dog and Owner, and raffle prizes. They will also be collecting canned food for the Luminara Ceremony at Relay, and everyone who donates cans of food, will also receive another ticket for

the raffle. “We have watering stops at Dahlias’ Boutique, Petra’s, and the Apple Shed,” said Jill, “and this year we have some awesome booths featuring our Bark For Life sponsor Canine Creek, and many others from Mrs. Beards Cookies to origami jewelry!” “So this is the perfect event to start your Mother’ Day shopping,” said Jill, who has gathered together an eclectic group of vendors, “so be sure to grab your leash and come

on down and walk your dog and then do some shopping for the perfect day!” Bark For Life is an American Cancer Society event for our Canine Caregivers or Canine Companions. Both humans and animals come together for a couple of hours to celebrate cancer survivors, to honor those lost to cancer, and to fundraise in support the American Cancer Society’s mission of eliminating cancer through research, education, advocacy and service. “I truly believe that all this research is necessary to help both humans and animals, so I Relay for my dog and my Dad who also passed away from cancer in 2009,” said Barb. “And I want people to know each time we walk at Bark For Life we are getting that much closer to finding a cure for cancer through research and development,” said Jill about her passion for this event. “We invite everyone to come down and be part of this fun and irresistible event,” said Barb. “We have a great route starting at Railroad Park making a circle through downtown Tehachapi, and we get to spend time with our best friends – our dogs!”

The Princess and the Pea opens April 19 BY MONICA NADON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

One of Hans Christian Andersen’s most popular fairy tales, “The Princess and the Pea,” will be brought to life onstage at the beautiful Beekay Theatre on April 19. Originally published in 1835, “The Princess and the Pea” has become a favorite of children the world over. With a script written by Michele L. Vacca and directed by Monica Nadon, this performance tells the fable of a prince in search of a real princess to make his bride. In his journey to find a true princess, the prince encounters many princesses, but alas, none of which seem to fit the bill. Upon returning to the

castle he comes across a princess who seeks shelter from a storm. Could she be the one he seeks? Only the old Queen knows the secret to discovering if she is a true princess. The cast features the talents of Jared Anderson, Lucy Asatryan, Kaitlyn Barcelona, Annica Bennette, Fallon Bock, Lily Bonham, Mia Bonham, Sophia Bonham, Kasey Brockelsby, Ava Daniels, Madisyn Davenport, Megan Fisher, Annette Hertz, Sean LaMonte, Emily Marin, Diana Partridge, Ricky Peregrina, Lanie Ringle, Kristen Roghair, Anika Valentino, Chase Welch and Taylor Welch.

Health & Fitness Ask the Doctor

When the heart has become a weak pump BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 79 and have congestive heart failure with some high blood pressure. Please give the information you have on my illness. -- F.W. ANSWER: Congestive heart failure is a common illness in older people. Up to 10 percent of those older than 65 have it or have had it. The meaning is that the heart has become so weak that it can't pump enough blood to support all body organs and tissues. You can call it just heart failure. The "congestive" word confuses people. The signs of a weakened heart are breathlessness when trying to do even relatively easy physical tasks, along with a feeling that all energy has left the body. A third sign is swelling, most often of the feet and ankles. The lungs also fill with fluid from backed-up blood, and that adds to the breathing

difficulty. The lungs are congested with fluid. Clogged heart arteries, heart-valve problems, a previous heart attack, a former viral heart infection and uncontrolled high blood pressure are some of the causes of heart failure. Aging is a major cause. The heart is beginning to wear out. This sounds hopeless; it isn't. Plenty can be done. For one, reduce the amount of salt and salty foods that you eat. Salt causes fluid retention in the body. Water pills (diuretics) remove excess body fluid, and they're a constant part of treatment. Drugs called ACE inhibitors not only regulate blood pressure, but they also ease heart failure. This is only a sample of the drugs that are useful for the treatment of this condition. Once under treatment, you ought to be breathing with ease and feel a return of pep. An exercise program is

then possible and an essential for treatment. The program is one that should be devised by your doctor. Walking is an excellent way to strengthen both body and heart muscles. The booklet on congestive heart failure provides detailed information on the condition and its treatment. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 103W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DR. DONUOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. © 2013 North America Synd., Inc. All Rights Reserved

Heart attack risks higher in women with PAD (NewsUSA) - Women with peripheral artery disease (PAD) are in danger of a heart attack and becoming one of the 500,000 women who die from them each year. "Women who have PAD can have significant coronary disease," said Katherine Gallagher, MD, a member of the Society for Vascular Surgery's Women's Leadership Committee. "Most women with PAD have a higher risk of a heart attack than from the complications they have from PAD. As women age, a common complaint is difficultly with walking; so the PAD diagnosis can be missed. Proper treatment will limit complications from PAD and the future risk of cardiac events." Dr. Gallagher added that campaigns about heart disease have increased awareness from 30 percent to 54

percent during a 12-year period. "Vascular surgeons are working on programs to educate the public and to make women more aware about the symptoms, dangers and treatments of PAD and other vascular diseases," said Dr. Gallagher. "Chest pain and/or discomfort are the main symptoms of heart attacks in men and women," said Dr. Gallagher. "Women may not feel the excessive chest pressure that many men have. Women can have more common symptoms like shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain." Other women's symptoms can include: • Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of the chest. It lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back.

• Pressure, pain or discomfort in the lower chest, upper back or upper abdomen, neck or in one or both arms • Being dizzy or lightheaded, faint or breaking into a cold sweat • Fatigue • Feeling like you have the flu Women who have a higher risk for heart disease include African Americans, Baby Boomers, diabetics and those who are 65 and older, post-menopausal or in early menopause. Younger women are at risk if they smoke or have high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, or a family history of young people with cardiovascular disease.

Stone Mountain Well Represented at THS Basketball Banquet By Moe Cramer Jr., PTA I would first like to congratulate and thank Coach Chris Olofsen and his assistant Larry Scaggs for a very exciting basketball season. The Warriors competed in the toughest league Tehachapi has ever been in and were predicted to come in fifth. It is commendable that the team proved the prognosticators wrong and came in third, but it is even more impressive that they did it with such a young team, three sophomores and three freshmen. The seasons to come are bound to be even more exciting. I have always loved and been involved with sports in one way or another and am blessed to have a job that keeps me close. Working at Stone Mountain Physical Therapy gave me the opportunity to personally train some of these young athletes and to help heal them from injury and get them back on the court. The icing on the cake is having the privilege of assisting Coach Louie Saavedra and his brother, Marc with the freshman team. After our games we hurry over to the varsity games like a bunch of kids, excited to watch our varsity Warriors. I have a great seat, I get to stay close to the bench to help keep an eye on our wounded. This allows me to be close enough to hear what’s going on inside the huddle and hang out in the locker room to hear Coach’s wisdom. What a great time I had this year! I was especially grateful to sit with the coaches at this year’s banquet and watch all of the proud families listen as the head coaches shared their thoughts on this past season, ending each presentation with the awards for the most outstanding athletes. At the freshman level Jacob Burt was named Most Valuable Player. Junior Varsity player Nick Madden was named Most Valuable Player and Phil Baquerizo named athlete of the month. Coach Oli named Dalton Scaggs Co-Most Valuable player and Andrew Bacquerizo Most Improved Player. While driving home and reflecting on the night I realized that all of the above named award winners are clients of Stone Mountain Physical Therapy. What a joy it is to see our clients have such success. I’m proud of each and every one of these young men as well as some of the others we have seen; Anthony Curiel, Ryan Kelly, Andrew Borst, Micah Fjeld, Chris Llamas, Lars Olofsen, Preston Terle, Brian Cotta, and Sage Voda. Of all these young men, there are two that I will never forget. These are jewels in theStone Mountain crown. First, Andrew Baquerizo; this young man showed dedication and persistence worthy of the name Warrior. Andrew trained every week, in season and out, sometimes before school at six in the morning. Coach said his hard work and dedication should inspire all athletes to follow suit. Last, but not least, one of the most amazing athletic feats I have ever witnessed. Dalton Scaggs tore his ACL near the end of last football season. He was told he needed surgery. He was told by several orthopedic surgeons that he was crazy to try and play basketball in the upcoming season, he’d never be able to do it. Dalton did not want to sit out his senior year and could not let his team down, he committed himself to do the impossible, play with a torn ACL. Dalton asked my opinion, I gave him the pros and cons and told him no matter what his decision I would give him all of my support. Well, he chose to play and came in at 6 am, faithfully, three days a week for training; and many rolls of tape later he receives Most Valuable Player and 1st Team All League, how remarkable! Thanks again guys, what a year!

Journey

Mentryville, one of California’s first oil boomtowns BY MATTHEW MARTZ TEHACHAPI NEWS

Aptly named after oil tycoon Charles Mentry and located within Santa Clarita Woodlands Park at the bottom of the Santa Susana Mountains of Pico Canyon in Santa Clarita, Mentryville was one of the first oil boomtowns in the state. Once home to over 100 families in the early 1930s, the entire settlement was built around the first commercially successful oil well in California — Pico No. 4, which produced millions in oil from 1878 until it was shut down in 1990. Donated to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy in 1995 by then-owner Chevron, today the Mentryville site and the 800 acres surrounding it, outdoor enthusiasts a unique opportunity to explore the beautiful Santa Clarita Valley backcountry, while providing visitors a glimpse of early turn-ofthe century California

Oil tycoon Charles Mentry's beautifully restored 13-room Pennsylvania style mansion. history. With a few remaining structures, including Mentry's beautifully restored 13-room Pennsylvania style mansion, a one-room school house and a period barn, the California Historic Landmark stands as a silent reminder of a time when prospectors combed California's landscape in search of gold — both yellow and black. There are also remnants of various oil industry related and other artifacts that can be found around the site and along some of the

trailheads leading into and out of Mentryville, including the main trail that winds its way up a nearby hillside to a shady picnic area, which used to be the party area for the oil well workers. Along the way, hikers will discover the remains of an old bakery built by Anthony Cochems, a baker for Standard Oil Company in 1897. From the bakery, several other trails vein off into the chaparral shrub land, grasslands and oak savanna covered hillsides. More advanced hikers

Just 96 miles from downtown Tehachapi, getting to Pico Canyon,

Mentryville and all of the area's parks is easily accomplished in a day. From the Golden State Freeway (I-5) in Valencia, exit on Lyons-Pico Canyon Road and head west. Near the end of Pico Canyon Road, bear left at a Y and continue to the end. A large parking lot is opposite the historic Mentryville.

The park is open daily, sunrise to sunset and there is $5 parking fee. Please check for changes or for special events, including guided walking tours before heading out at www.lamountains.com or by calling the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy at 310-589-3200.

What are rules for collecting roadkill raptors? Q&As from the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife BY CARRIE WILSON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Question: What are the rules concerning the use of birds of prey, such as owls, which have been killed by vehicles? I have found several in the local area which seemed to be dead along the side of the road but without evidence of damage to the body. My guess based on where they fell is they are "indirect roadkills." If I wanted to save these animals for taxidermy or another use, would I need some kind of documentation? If so, what sort of permit would I need? It would be simple to document the finds I have made photographically at the

American Kestrel USFWS PHOTO site, but preserving them for inspection later by California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) would be harder. Thanks for your help with this. (Ken Z., Visalia) Answer: Under both state and federal law, it is not legal to collect or possess any species of bird that is protected under the U.S. Migratory Bird Treaty Act. This would include all raptors that have been killed by vehicles. There are permits available, under very specific circumstances that allow scientific or educational facilities to salvage these

birds. Organizations that believe they may qualify for these permits would be required to obtain both a federal Salvage Permit and state Scientific Collecting Permit. More information on these permits can be found at www.dfg.ca.gov/wildlife /nongame/research_per mit/ and www.fws.gov/forms/3200-10a.pdf.

Legal to collect moon jellyfish for personal use? Question: I am interested in collecting some moon jellyfish just for my personal use but want to be sure its legal. They would not be sold or traded. If legal, can I collect them under a basic fishing license or would I be required to have a marine collectors permit? (Tucker M.) Answer: Moon jellyfish occurring outside the tide pool zone (1,000

ft. seaward from mean high tide) may be legally taken with a fishing license and the bag limit is 35 (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 29.05 & 29.05(a)).

Fishing license and second rod stamp Question: I have a California sport fishing license but did not pay for the second rod stamp. When I am out ocean fishing on my boat, am I only allowed one rod? I thought since it was the ocean I can have two rods out, even if I did not pay for a second rod stamp. (Anonymous) Answer: The second rod stamp is only required when fishing in freshwater with two poles. In the ocean, any number of poles and lines generally can be used, with some exceptions. For example, fishing for lingcod, rockfish, greenlings or cabezon is

limited to one line with no more than two hooks. Also, when fishing in San Francisco Bay or when fishing for salmon north of Pt. Conception, only one rod/line may be used per person. Other exceptions exist, such as when pier fishing - only two methods may be used. There are only a few exceptions like these, but I'd recommend reviewing the Gear Restrictions section of the Ocean Sport Fishing Regulations booklet and any regulations for the species you're pursuing to ensure you're following the law.

Crab pot dimensions? Question: My son wants to build his own crab pot. I think it's a great project but I can't find any official size regulations. He already has line, buoys and bait containers. I found a web

page that described a circular pot as measuring 42 inches in diameter, 14 inches deep and weighing 90 pounds. Are those the required dimensions? Can they be bigger/smaller? Any help is appreciated. (Anonymous) Answer: As long as the trap has at least two rigid circular openings of not less than four and one-quarter inches inside diameter so constructed that the lowest portion of each opening is no lower than five inches from the top of the trap (CCR, Title 14, section 29.80 (c)), your son is free to construct a pot using any dimensions!

Home & Garden Potatoes make healthy meals in minutes (Family Features) Few things in life are

Roasted Red Potatoes with Pesto

harder to resist than the delicious aroma of a backyard barbecue. There is just something about the sizzle and smells of grilled fare that brings folks together. The farm families who grow Wisconsin potatoes know how to please the palates of hungry crowds. The natural flavors found in the many varieties of Wisconsin potatoes are easy to enhance with the addition of a few fresh ingredients and a little bit of smoke. The Wisconsin russet potato makes for a great tasting baked potato, but its light and fluffy interior also holds up well when seared on the grill. Also great on the grill are Wisconsin yellow flesh potatoes, which have a just-buttered appearance. The appearance of the trendy new blue and purple potatoes will certainly get guests talking. They add color and a subtle nutty flavor to your favorite dish. Everyone's favorite dish at an outdoor

barbecue is often the potato salad. Wisconsin round red or white potatoes are both well-suited for salads as well as roasting, boiling, and steaming. Potatoes are an extremely versatile and hearty vegetable. But the one thing all potatoes have in common is nutrition. Just what can Wisconsin potatoes do for you? Well, potatoes are: • Nutritional powerhouses. In addition to being fat-free, cholesterol-free, sodium free and gluten-free, a medium potato has just 110 calories. • Rich in potassium. According to the USDA, diets rich in potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure. The potato is second only to the banana in the amount of potassium it contains. • Packed with Vitamin C. A medium potato contains 45 percent of the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C. • Great source of fiber. The USDA reports that fiber helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower your risk of heart disease. Potatoes can also

help make you feel fuller with fewer calories. Grilled, fried, baked, roasted or boiled, few ingredients get every guest asking for second helpings like the versatile potato. Find more health information, as well as recipes and purchasing tips, at www.EatWisconsinPotatoes.com.

Turn to coat; marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes or up to 2 hours, turning occasionally. Meanwhile, in microwave-safe dish, combine potatoes and water. Cover and microwave on high 9 to 10 minutes or until just tender; cool. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, alternately thread with bell pepper and zucchini onto eight 10 to 12-inch skewers; brush with remaining marinade. Remove chicken from plastic bag; discard marinade from chicken. Grill chicken over medium to medium-low coals 30 to 40 minutes or until juices run clear, turning occasionally. About 10 minutes before chicken is done, add vegetables to grid; reserve marinade. Grill until tender and lightly browned, turning and basting occasionally with reserved vegetable marinade. Serve chicken and vegetables with tortillas and salsa, if desired.

Note: If using plastic wrap, make sure plastic wrap is not touching any ingredients and poke one small hole in cover to vent. Microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes or until potatoes are tender (cooking time may vary depending on microwave). Use oven mitts to carefully remove from microwave. When cool enough to handle, cut potatoes in half or quarters and spray liberally with olive oil spray. Grill over high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, turning occasionally, until grill lines are apparent. Remove from grill and let cool. Cut into bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl. Whisk together vinegar, oil, salt and garlic; pour over potatoes and toss lightly to coat. Season with pepper, then cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Just before serving, toss with Parmesan cheese and basil, then sprinkle with pine nuts.

Practical Money Matters

How financially literate are you? BY JASON ALDERMAN CONTRIBUTING WRITER

I'm not sure whether it was intentional or merely a coincidence that several years ago Congress proclaimed April to be Financial Literacy Month. April is also the month when millions of Americans grimly write a check to the IRS and resolve to do a better job managing their money; and when millions of others squander their tax refund without realizing why receiving overly large refunds isn't sound financial management. In recognition of 2013's Financial Literacy Month, the National Foundation of Credit Counseling just released the results of its seventh annual Consumer Financial Literacy Survey, which tracks Americans' attitudes and behaviors related to personal finance. NFCC spokesperson Gail Cunningham said, "On a positive note, by certain measures a large percentage of Americans do feel they're getting a better handle on controlling their finances," she said. "On the downside, however, many people give themselves poor grades on their knowledge of personal finance, and worry that they're not saving enough for a rainy day – or for retirement."

Here are some of the survey's key findings: 40 percent of adults have a budget and closely track their spending. In other words, 60 percent don't use a budget. Only 32 percent of those polled spend less on living expenses now than they did last year – a steady decline since 2009's 59 percent level. At the same time, 27 percent said they now spend more than they did a year ago. About 71 percent pay all bills on time and have no debts in collection – a 7 percent improvement from 2012. Similarly, the percentage of adults who do not pay all bills on time has decreased, from 33 percent in 2012 to 26 percent in 2013. 37 percent carry credit card debt from month to month – a 7 percent decrease since the question was first asked in 2009.

Insufficient savings tops the list of financial worries, with 43 percent most worried that they don't have enough emergency savings, and 38 percent worried they'll retire with inadequate savings. In fact, a whopping 31 percent say they currently save nothing for retirement. When asked where they learned the most about personal finance, the largest number (33 percent) said from their parents; yet 78 percent agree that they could benefit from advice and answers to everyday financial questions from a professional. To me, perhaps the most telling statistic is that 40 percent of adults give themselves only a grade of C, D or F on their knowledge of personal finance. Should we be worried because that many people with a poor-to-middling understanding of money management are likely to be the major influence on their children's financial habits? I think so. "Fortunately, many financial education tools are available for people of all ages," noted Cunningham. "The challenge is making people aware of them and encouraging them to seek help when they need it."

Noteworthy California announces statewide crackdown on texting and handheld cell use In an effort to eliminate dangerous behind-thewheel cell phone use and texting, the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), California Highway Patrol (CHP), and more than 200 law enforcement agencies across the state today announced high visibility enforcement operations during April’s National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The overall goal of increased enforcement is to convince drivers of

the dangers of distracted driving and reduce the number of people impacted by this risky behavior. The “It’s Not Worthy It!” theme emphasizes that a phone call or text isn’t worth a hefty fine or a collision. “In a few short years, distracted driving has grown to be a nationwide traffic safety concern, and we all need to put forth the effort necessary to put an end to it,” said OTS Director Christopher

J. Murphy. “Law enforcement agencies will be stepping up their efforts to help remind drivers to stay alert when behind the wheel and to not endanger their lives or the lives of others with distractions from mobile devices.” In recent years, hundreds have been killed and thousands seriously injured in California as a result of collisions that involved at least one driver who was distracted.

Nationally, an estimated 3,331 people died in 2011. Any activity that diverts the driver’s attention away from the primary task of driving is distracting, but the recent dramatic rise in cell phone talking and texting has greatly increased the number of collisions. “No text message or phone call is worth the risk of serious injury-or much worse,” said Brian Kelly, Acting Secretary of Business, Transportation

To avoid falling victim to “zombie-like” distracted driving behaviors OTS is providing drivers with the following tips that can be implemented by any motorist: • Turn off your phone and/or put it out of reach while driving. • Include in your outgoing message that you can’t answer while you are driving. • Don’t call or text

Dangers of texting and distracted driving Continued from Page 15

aanyone at a time when you think they may be driving. • Adjust controls and set your song playlist before you set out on the road. • Stay alert and keep your mind on the task of drivingoften after a long day at work or a not-so-restful night’s sleep, people’s minds can wander when behind the wheel. If you find yourself daydreaming- clear your head and focus on the road.

In 2012, the California Department of Motor Vehicles reported nearly 450,000 handheld cell phone and texting convictions, with more than 57,000 tickets issued in April alone. The CHP and statewide law enforcement agencies are committed to ensuring our streets are safe by ticketing anyone found driving while distracted. The fine for a first time texting or hand-held cell phone violation is $159, with a subse-

quent tickets costing $279. “Enforcement is just one part of this campaigh,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “The larger goal is educating motorists about the dangers of distracted driving and encouraging them to change their behavior behind the wheel. This effort is not about how many citations law enforcement officers can issue, but how many lives are ultimately saved because motorists made the right

choice to focus their attention on the road, free of distraction.” Drivers and passengers alike are invited to check out all the District Driving Zombies and add comments on the OTS Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CaliforniaOTS, and follow OTS on Twitter @OTS_CA.
