ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You easily handle your tasks this week, thanks to those high energy levels that never seem to run down. But pace yourself, Lamb, for the demanding week ahead.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) There could be another tough challenge to face before the month is over. But all that hard work is winning you lots of important recognition from your peers.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) With the arts dominant this week, you might want to pick up any of those creative projects you've neglected. A workplace situation benefits from some fresh insight.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Keeping to your work schedule could prove difficult with all those personal distractions. Best advice: Stay with it. There'll be time later for socializing.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Music helps replenish your energy levels. Play your CDs if you must. But a live concert could prove more rewarding, especially if you go with that very special someone.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Jumping hurdles this week might be vexing for most, but not for the sage Sagittarian, who recognizes that meeting a challenge can open up opportunities.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Close friends reach out to help perk up your lagging social life. That workplace situation also eases, leaving you time to do more fun things by week's end.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) More obstacles might be thrown in your path as you try to finalize a new agreement. But the sure-footed Goat ignores the stumbling blocks and stays the course.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) A revelation clears up that perplexing job-related problem. Some changes will have to be made, which, no doubt, will meet with the Big Cat's roaring approval. Good luck.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) We know the Water Bearer takes pleasure in giving to others. But why not let someone else enjoy the experience too by accepting that offer of help?

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Reaching out to someone in need is the noble thing to do. But try to restrain the temptation to add a lecture -no matter how well-intended - to your good deed.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might find you need to ease up on your hectic schedule this week. Don't fret about it. It could be helpful to take a break and replenish your energy supply.

Born This Week: You have a way of finding practical solutions to complex problems, and you do it with grace. ©2012 King Features Synd., Inc., provided as entertainment.

Do you have your tickets? The Summit Singers are ready to present their Spring concert on Saturday, May 4, at First Baptist Church, 1049 South Curry St., at 7 p.m. They’re shown practicing their program at a recent rehearsal. Also pictured is “4 Goodness Sake,” a local women’s barbershop quartet, which has been “adopted” to sing at almost all of the Summit Singers concerts. Tickets may be purchased from a chorus member, or from the Apple Shed, Books and Crannies, Mountain Music, or Tehachapi Furniture. The Summit Singers were “born” in Tehachapi fourteen years ago, and continue to be Tehachapi’s own home-grown community chorus. Many of the singers have been with the group since its inception, but have been joined over the years by many newcomers. Together they have developed a unique and professional sound, which continues to entertain local audiences year after year. Under the direction of local choral director, Chick Gamble, for over ten years, the Summit Singers became the “go to” group to musically kick off the Christmas season every year, as well as to entertain audiences at one or

Members of the Summit Singers practice in preparation for their last show of the season, on May 4th, at First Baptist Church, 1049 South Curry St., at 7 p.m. two Spring concerts. With the illness of their beloved director, the last two seasons have seen the group working with new leadership. Fortunately, that new leadership came with expertise and dedication from within the Summit Singers group itself. Last year saw Ken Williams, a former bass with the group, directing the Summit Singers and doing a marvelous job. And this year Lon Salzman, formerly a tenor with the group, directs the singers with his own brand of expertise. Accompanying the Summit Singers on the piano is former alto, Julie Searfoss, who stepped up when circumstances required former accompanist Nancy Grecian to take a hiatus from the piano.

The Summit Singers have developed warm ties within their ranks, and they are hoping to add to their close-knit “family” next season. Practice for next season will begin in September. With the help of a grant awarded by the Arts Council of Kern, they will be able to make membership more affordable next year, and hope to attract many more singers from the community. They have discussed ideas to bring younger singers into the group, and may even be able to offer a scholarship in the near future. The Summit Singers believe that music offers a way to share the joy of life, and to communicate with people of all ages and backgrounds. Will you join in that joy? Call 822-3836 with any questions you may have.

Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea,” continues its performances onstage at the historic Beekay Theatre.

Vacca adapts the story to tell 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 comes across numerous princesses. From a bookish princess to a “valley girl” princess, even a princess from another galaxy.

The Weekender — Friday, April 26, 2013

Brian Finnegan and William Coulter at Fiddlers Crossing BY DEBORAH HAND CONTRIBUTING WRITER

First Friday is usually an Open House night at Fiddlers Crossing. But Friday, May 3, the venue will be presenting a concert by two of the finest virtuosos in Irish music today, Brian Finnegan and William Coulter. The two will also give workshops at 10 a.m. the next morning. Finnegan, from Armagh, Northern Ireland, is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s most innovative and exciting flute and tin whistle players. He has toured the world as the creative and driving force for the Anglo-Irish band, Flook

for over 13 years, and is considered a “maverick” for his innovative approach to the Irish flute and whistle. Finnegan said that his music is forged from both his native tradition and from his love of a wider musical tapestry. His traveling and touring in India and Eastern Europe, he said, had a particularly deep and profound effect on his music. Coulter, from Santa Cruz, is a Grammy winning guitarist who has been performing and recording Irish traditional music for the past 20 years. He is no stranger to Tehachapi andwill also be returning to Camp

Kiya (in Mountain Park) for the third time this summer, July 21-25, teaching both classical and traditional guitar playing. Coulter received his BA in music from UC Santa Cruz and Master’s Degree from the San Francisco Conservatory. Along with his studies in classical guitar, he was always drawn to traditional Irish and American folk music. This interest led to his second Master’s degree from UCSC in 1994 in ethnomusicology, with an emphasis on traditional Irish music, language and song. Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 E. “F” St. at Robin-

Health & Fitness Ask the Doctor

Age no barrier to heart valve repair BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I had an echocardiogram. The findings are consistent with "moderate to severe aortic stenosis with trace mitral and tricuspid regurgitation and mild pulmonic insufficiency, with left atrial enlargement and left ventricular diastolic dysfunction. The ejection fraction is greater than 65 percent." My doctor referred me to a cardiologist, who told me I need surgery. I am 86 years old and do not feel it would be safe. Will you explain in plain English what I have, and if surgery would lengthen my life span? -- M.I. ANSWER: Forget about the mitral, tricuspid and pulmonic heart valves. These three valves have an insignificant leak. Your aortic valve, however, is your main problem. The aortic valve closes after the heart pumps blood out to the rest of the body. Your valve is so narrow (stenosis) that it creates an obstacle to emptying

the heart of blood. That has given rise to "diastolic dysfunction." Your heart can't fill with blood normally, as it should between heartbeats (diastole). It is less stretchable. The aortic valve trouble has caused it to thicken. Early on in aortic stenosis, all goes well. When the valve narrows to a critical size, about 1 square centimeter, symptoms arise, and heart damage progresses more rapidly. The three most important symptoms and signs of aortic stenosis are shortness of breath when up and about, chest pain with activity and fainting spells. Once these symptoms appear, a downhill course in heart health is to be expected. Even though you're 86, age is not a contraindication to surgery. If your health is otherwise good, you could be a candidate

for it. Discuss with the doctor the surgery he has in mind. Ask if you might be able to receive a new valve inserted into the heart through a surface blood vessel by way of a catheter. No extensive incisions are made. It's a less-traumatic procedure. Replacement of your heart valve will increase your life span and will do away with the severe symptoms that come from a narrowed aortic valve. The booklet on heartvalve disorders describes the more common causes of heartvalve problems and how they are treated. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -No. 105W, 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. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What elevates a person's white blood cell count? What can a person do about it? Mine has been

high for a while. -- B.L. ANSWER: White blood cells are the body's warriors. They fight germs and perform other tasks to protect the body from infection. The normal white blood cell count is 5,000 to 10,000. Infections, inflammation, trauma, some noninfectious illnesses, leukemia and stress (including emotional stress) raise the count. So do dehydration and cortisone medicines. If no illnesses are found, it's not unusual to ignore the higher-thannormal count. If suspicions of hidden illness are high, then further testing has to be done -like a bone marrow test. A person can do nothing on his own to lower the count. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Pediatric Cancer landscape calls for global outreach (NewsUSA) Around the world, pediatric cancer survival rates are failing to keep pace with real-life treatment and diagnostic opportunities. Five-year survival rates for children with cancer went from 30 percent in the 1960s to 80 percent in the 2000s, but since then improvements have been sparse. Developing countries, those too often faced with few resources and treatment options, suffer the most. In Africa, an estimated four-fifths of childhood cancer patients do not survive. But the strict regulatory nature of pediatric drugs, including some-

what outmoded research methods, is just as problematic in Europe and the U.S. An associate director at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Office of Hematology and Oncology Products calls for global cooperation, insisting on the acknowledgement "that childhood cancer is a growing problem" that needs more international collaboration in clinical research. Collaboration like The National Children's Cancer Society Global Outreach Program, which helps facilitate donations of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to

countries in need. Since 1993, NCCS has distributed more than $292 million in medical help across 41 countries. That's more than 108,000 children who have been treated or helped by the joint efforts of NCCS and their pharmaceutical partners. With collaborative efforts such as this, pediatric cancer patients from impoverished regions have better access to effective treatment, much-needed pharmaceuticals and methods for early detection. But there's still a long way to go. Oncologists say inter-

national progress depends on increasing the quality and quantity of drug research, with an emphasis on modernizing regulations and cooperative outreach. Making headway in research, combined with a higher volume of global aid programs from resources like NCCS, means more information and treatment options will be available to lowincome countries.

Three misunderstood elements of sleep for children and teens BY NATALIE WILLES CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Here are three misunderstood elements of sleep for infants and children age 5-18: 1. Brain development - A study released recently by Dr. Gravin, M.D. and Dr. Brown, Ph.D. , demonstrated that proper sleep cycles are necessary for the development of neurosensory and motor systems in fetus, newborns, children and teenagers. This means that repeated cycling through all the stages of sleep is essential for the body's nervous system to develop properly. Furthermore, since babies develop so many motor skills throughout the first year of their life, sleep is essential in order to allow the body to reach it's optimum potential in terms of rolling, sitting, crawling and walking. Infant sleep cycles need to be longer than 45 minutes in order for a full, restorative cycle to be

completed. If one has a poor napper, that is all the more reason to address night sleep as soon as possible so that the infant or child is at least getting some chance to develop their nervous system and motor skills properly. 2. Muscle Development - Muscle development happens almost exclusively during sleep! And this doesn't just matter if you're trying to bulk up - children spend a lot of their time growing and lengthening, turning baby fat into muscles. If infants and children are not sleeping properly, their muscles are not developing properly! 3. Lack of Sleep Contributes to Hyperactivity and Problematic Behavioral Issues - The New England Center for Pediatric Psychology has coined the term Faux ADHD to describe children who have been diagnosed with ADHD, but whose behaviors are in fact directly linked to

two detrimental sleep behaviors: First children who did not sleep in their own bed display ADHD-like behaviors seven times more often than children who sleep on their own, and second, children who did not have a consistent bedtime were eight times more likely to display ADHD-like behaviors than children who have a consistent nightly bedtime. If one is struggling with a child who displays ADHD-like behaviors, make sure sleep is ruled out as an issue first, especially if the child is not responding well to medications.

Journey

Daytrippin’ in Antelope Valley; Lions, tigers, poppies and planes BY MATTHEW MARTZ TEHACHAPI NEWS

Situated at the most western tip of the Mojave Desert between the Tehachapi and the San Gabriel Mountain ranges, and aptly named after the pronghorn antelopes that once wandered its desert floor, Antelope Valley is a rare mix of isolated desert landscapes and space age technology. Known as the “aerospace capital of the world,” the cities in the area are Palmdale and Lancaster in northern Los Angeles County, and Rosamond in the southeastern portion of Kern County. The entire valley is all within an hour or less drive from Tehachapi, making it a fantastic way to spend a day exploring the regions unique attractions. And no trip to the Antelope Valley would be complete without first visiting the musical road in Lancaster. Initially constructed for a Honda car commercial, this “noteworthy” stretch of highway was removed after neighbors complained about the noise. But thanks to the City of Lancaster, once again music lovers can enjoy "The William Tell Overture" as they drive down a scenic, less-populated stretch of Avenue G between 30th and 40th Streets West. Continuing west on Avenue G approximately 12 miles, travelers will find themselves at the foot of the lazy, rolling foothills of the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, where beginning in March through May, are highlighted with the vibrant orange of California’s native flower. The reserve, located at 15101 Lancaster Road, is a great place to take a break with the entire family, stopping for an afternoon picnic before hiking one of

the eight miles of dirt trails that that all connect in a loop around the reserve. Entrance to the reserve is free, but there is an $10 parking fee. If looking for more bite to your journey, then a visit to the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound in nearby Rosamond is in order. Affectionately known as the “Cat House,” this conservation center located at 3718 60th Street West, offers feline fanatics a close personal experience of the world’s coolest endangered species of big cats. Admission is just $7 for adults, $5 for seniors and kids 312. Parking is free. The compound is located off Rosamond Boulevard and is open to the public 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily except Wednesdays. Finally, for aviation addicts and military enthusiasts, the Air Force Flight Test Center Museum at Edwards Air Force base provides an exciting opportunity to see nearly 40 historic aircraft as well as other various artifacts including, aircraft propulsion systems, missiles, technical drawings, personal memorabilia and rare photographs. The museum is located at 405 S. Rosamond Blvd., and is open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday for individuals with official business on base. For those that don’t have base access, there is a general public tour offered twice a month. The tours are free, but reservations are required. For more information visit www.edwards.af.mil, or call any of 2773517. Because of its desert climate, the best time to visit the Antelope Valley is in the fall or early spring, as summer temperatures can soar well into triple digits.

Fish & Wildlife

Would hatching and raising wild turkeys run afoul of the law? Q&As from the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife BY CARRIE WILSON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Question: If I want to raise a couple of turkeys from eggs that I believe came from partly or mostly wild stock, would I run afoul of California law? They would not be used for any business purposes and would remain on my property. I would prefer to let them roam around my place, which is quite large and full of native habitat, as opposed to keeping them penned up. There are currently no wild turkeys in my

PHOTO BY CARRIE WILSON

Wild spring turkeys

area. (Tucker) Answer: You cannot take eggs from the wild to raise. Nesting birds are given protection from “harassment” while sitting on and incubating their eggs. In addition, wild turkeys cannot be domestically reared and released for propagation or hunting purposes. Only wild trapped turkeys trapped from the wild by the Department may be released into the wild (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 671.6(b)).

Fishing for different species with separate rods? Question: I have a question about fishing for salmon and groundfish off the coast of San Francisco. I understand that only one rod can be used to fish each type. My question is over whether it’s ok to fish for both types of fish at the same time? By this I mean one rod

set up for salmon using the "mooching" style of fishing at around 10 feet of water with frozen bait. The other rod would be set up for groundfish using shrimp flies at the bottom of the ocean floor around 85 ft. Your help is much appreciated. (Jason) Answer: Nice try! But no, you may use only one rod when targeting salmon or groundfish. You may not use one rod for salmon and one rod for groundfish at the same time. You are also restricted to using only barbless hooks if you have a salmon on your boat, even if you are targeting rockfish at the time (see CCR Title 14, section 27.80.)

Where can bluegill be used for bait? Question: Many times I have seen people on the docks in the Delta catching bluegill for striper bait. Is this permitted for black bass bait in Lake Don Pedro if the bluegill are caught there and not transported from another place? (John and Diane H.) Answer: Bluegill may not

be used as bait at Lake Don Pedro. California sportfishing regulations for freshwater generally prohibit using live or dead finfish for bait. Although certain species of finfish may be used in the waters where taken, bluegill may only be used in the Colorado River District (see CCR, Title 14, section 4.15(a)) and portions of the Valley and South Central Districts (see CCR, Title 14, section 4.20(d)). While Lake Don Pedro is inside the Valley District (see CCR, Title 14, section 6.36), it is not included as a location where bluegill may be used as bait.

Orange hunter vests Question: I recently completed my hunter safety education course, got my license and went hunting with a small group on private land. None of us wore hunter safety orange vests as we were all together at all times and in each other’s line of sights. I see hunting shows where they sometimes don't wear the orange hunter vests either. When do you wear the vests? Is it accept-

able to not wear them while on private land when you’re with a small group and know where everyone is? Or, do you have to wear orange all the time while hunting? (Joseph L., OIF Vet) Answer: Though some states require hunters (especially when hunting upland game) to wear blaze orange all the time while in the field for safety reasons, in California we do not require it. It is a good idea to wear this distinctive color whenever possible for your safety as it does help you to stand out, but there is no law requiring it. You’ll find that orange is being incorporated more and more into hunting camouflage patterns to provide greater safety. One thing to note for deer hunting, deer cannot detect the color orange. To deer, orange looks gray. CARRIE WILSON is a marine environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

(Family Features) Starting the day right with a good breakfast helps set the tone for your day. In fact, studies show that kids who eat breakfast have better scores on math, reading and standardized tests; are better able to pay attention; and have fewer absences and incidences of tardiness, compared to breakfast skippers. But is your breakfast the best it can be? Experts recommend 20 to 30 grams of protein at each meal, and while breakfast is typically lower in protein than other meals, it's a particularly important time to include protein in your diet - to help you get the right start to your day. In fact, when you have your protein can be just as important as how much you have, and research suggests that spreading protein intake throughout the day - rather than just at lunch or dinner - can optimize how your body uses it, and that means making sure you include enough protein at breakfast. A protein-packed breakfast can also help you feel "healthy full" so you stave off mid-morning cravings and can stick to healthier eating throughout the day. Help your whole family start the day right and include protein in your nutritious breakfast. Try these tips to maximize protein in the morning: • Make your morning oatmeal with milk instead of water. Top with almonds for extra protein, too. • Include a glass of milk with your morning meal. An 8-ounce glass of milk has 8 grams of quality protein. • Make your own smoothie and choose your favorite frozen fruit. • Grab a latte, instead of black coffee, and pair it with peanut butter toast and some fruit for a balanced meal. • Whip up a bowl of cottage cheese topped with fruit and honey. • Create a breakfast BLT with a whole grain muffin, lean turkey bacon and lettuce and tomato. Find more ways to give your morning a boost with recipes at www.thebreakfastproject.com.

Refreshing communities through outdoor gardens

Critter Corner

(NewsUSA) - Whether you live in an urban or rural area, enjoying the outdoors is something many Americans have in common, and we experience it in different ways - both big and small -from growing herbs on the back porch to perusing the community farmer's market in town. But why not take it a step further and take action to make your community a little greener? Creating an outdoor oasis helps preserve green space, beautifies neighborhoods, and can also bring together the community through a shared cause. One way to do this is through The Pepsi Refresh Project, which through the input of people across the country, awards grants to projects, for both individuals and organizations, that do good for the community. This month Pepsi is challenging America, asking "How can you upgrade your hometown with a new community garden?" Go to www.refresheverything.c

(NewsUSA) - Pets, like humans, have been anxiously waiting for warm weather to play outdoors and enjoy nature. However, pet owners should prepare for a pest battle unlike in previous years as hungry ticks, fleas and mosquitoes await their prey, of the two, or four-legged kind. "Pet owners should take special care to protect their pets from ticks, fleas and mosquitoes this season," says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). "Always inspect animals' coats thoroughly after they spend time outdoors." Due to several factors, such as the low acorn crop in 2011, the biting trio are out in full force this year, and they may bring their not-so friendly diseases with them. Cats and dogs are susceptible to heartworm transmitted by mosquitoes, which can lead to lung and heart disease. Most pet owners know See PREVENTING • Page 14

Practical Money Matters

Before you rent, do your homework BY JASON ALDERMAN CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Maybe you're a college student looking to rent your first apartment; or a downsizing homeowner reentering the rental market for the first time in decades. Whatever your situation, there are many precautions you should take before renting any property. The last thing you want is to be saddled with a 12-month lease you can't afford or to be stuck in a neighborhood you've come to detest. As one who's been there, let me share a few tips for renting a home: Before you even start looking, know how much you can afford to spend. Housing is the biggest monthly expense for most people so if you miscalculate what rent is affordable, your budget will suffer from the get-go. Besides rent, don't forget such additional expenses as a security deposit, utilities, cable/satellite, Internet access, renters insurance, parking and laundry facilities and one-time movein expenses like window treatments, appliances or rugs. Scope out the neighborhood. Determine how safe you feel walking around, especially if you'll be parking on the street. Come back to see if the neighborhood's character changes at night or on the weekend. Also note the proximity to parks, schools, grocery stores, public transportation and busy commuter routes. Thoroughly inspect each potential rental: • Consider total useable space – sometimes a smaller unit with a welldesigned floor plan is more desirable than a larger space with a poor layout. • Use a tape measure to measure each room to determine whether your furniture will fit. Ensure there's sufficient closet, cupboard and storage space. • Look for safety features like deadbolts and peepholes on exterior doors, well-lit corridors, stairwells and parking structures, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and bars or other security features on first-floor windows. • In multi-unit buildings, note the condition of common areas – that's a clue how attentive the owner/manag-

er is regarding upkeep. • Note the condition of appliances, plumbing fixtures, floors/carpeting, electrical outlets and switches, light fixtures, walls and windows. If you spot damaged or worn items, ask whether they'll be replaced. If not, make sure they're noted in the rental agreement. • Check the water pressure and hot water quality. • Check seals around doors, windows and vents; if leaky, they can boost utility bills. • Look for evidence of previous water leaks and mold. • Check for soundproofing, especially if there are adjoining apartments. Once you find a suitable place, read the rental agreement carefully. Don't hesitate to ask a lawyer or more experienced friend to review it. If not spelled out in the lease you may want to ask the landlord: • How much is the security deposit and what are the requirements for getting a full refund? • How are rent increases determined? • What happens after the lease term ends? Often, it'll convert to a month-to-month rental agreement where you can leave anytime with proper notice (usually 30 days). • How many tenants are allowed? • What are building policies for things like houseguests, noise curfews, maintenance and repairs, pest control, smoking, lost keys and pets? • Can you sublet the unit before your lease expires? And finally, be aware that many landlords check credit reports of potential tenants. Before you start looking, check your own credit report so there are no surprises. You can order one free report per year from each of the three major credit bureaus – Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. (Order through www.annualcreditreport.com; otherwise you'll pay a small fee.)

ticks are carriers of Lyme disease, but pet owners must also familiarize themselves with Rocky Mountain spotted fever and tick paralysis. The latter usually occurs when a tick attaches too closely to a dog's spine, causing respiratory problems and, in severe cases, death. Fleas aren't any safer as their saliva can transfer anemia, dermatitis and tapeworms. "Fleas are known for their quick breeding capabilities, and a handful on your pet can quickly turn into hundreds in your home if left unchecked," explains Henriksen. "Their small size and mobility make it impossible to detect them on surfaces such as carpets and linens." Protect the health of your beloved pets and your family by trusting some key pest prevention tips from the NPMA: • Avoid walking through tall grass or

thick, low-growing vegetation with your pets. • Bathe pets regularly to detect pests and get rid of them. If you have a longhaired animal, brush their fur to keep track of any pest activity. • Vacuum and wash pet bedding and toys often, especially if you notice or suspect fleas. • Pay attention to excessive scratching, licking or nibbling behavior in your pets. • Talk to your veterinarian about options to protect your animals, like heartworm or anti-flea and -tick medicines. • If you discover a pest problem, contact a local pest professional immediately to determine if the pest problem has occurred as a result of an infestation in and around your home.

The Weekender — Friday, April 26, 2013

Noteworthy Grand Jury’s Administration and Audit Committee meets with Kern County Roads Department The Kern County Grand Jury recently released a report of its Administration and Audit Committee. The committee visited the Kern County Roads Department on Dec. 6, 2012, which offices are located at 2700 M St., Suite 400 in Bakersfield. The committee has investigated and reported on various departments throughout Kern

County. The committe reviewed past records and determined that the Kern County Roads Department had not been visited by the Grand Jury in over four years. The committee researched via internet prior to visiting with the Kern County Roads Department. The committee met with the director and staff and was provided with a

presentation followed by a tour of the facilities. The stated mission of the Kern County Roads Department is to “Plan, design, construct and maintain the safest, most cost-effective public roadways for the movement of people and goods.” The Road Fund was established April 2, 1866. The Collier-Burns Act, adopted by the state leg-

islature on Jan. 1, 1948, provides for the construction and maintenance of roads and bridges based on the areas of greatest need within the Commissioner by the Board of Supervisors (Board.) On March 26,1979, the board directed the merger of the Road Fund with the Public Works Department. On July 1, 1992, upon board order, the Public Works Department was reorganized. The staff and responsibilities for Roads and Transit were placed under direction of the Resource Management Agency. The current director was appointed Road Commissioner oby the Board of Supervisors on Oct. 11, 1994. Following the reorganization in July 2011, the

The Kern County Roads Department is subdivided into six departments • Administrative/ Special projects • Design • Maintenance • Construction • Office Engineering • Development Review The Kern County Roads Department continues to maintain a high level of efficiency despite buget cutbacks. As funding becomes available pending projects should continue to get the proper funding to completion. The Administration and Audit Committee commended the department and had no recommendations at that time.

Caltrans installing new signs statewide to remind motorists to ‘Move Over’ Caltrans workers and the California Highway Patrol will be out in force today on highways throughout the state, installing “Move Over” signs intended to help save lives and increase safety for motorists, highway workers, CHP officers, and other law enforcement. “Every day, highway workers put their lives in danger just by going to work,” said Caltrans Director Malcolm

Dougherty. “We’re asking motorists to slow down, watch out for highway workers and CHP, and safely move over a lane when they see flashing amber lights on Caltrans or other emergency vehicles.” The new signs will display the messages, “Move Over or Slow for Stopped Emergency and Maintenance Vehicles” and “Move Over or Slow When Amber Lights Flashing.” In addition, more than 700

existing electronic highway message signs statewide will display, “Move Over or Slow for Workers, It’s the Law.” “Every year, a growing number of law enforcement, emergency personnel, and highway workers are killed or injured along California’s roadways,” said California Highway Patrol Commissioner Joe Farrow. “One way to help minimize the risk for these workers is for the motor-

ing public to do their part by paying attention and exercising caution on the road. If you see emergency lights on the shoulder ahead, the law requires you to move over or slow down.” The Move Over law, which took effect in 2007, was amended in 2009 to add Caltrans vehicles displaying flashing amber warning lights to the list of vehicles for which motorists must move over if safe to do

so, or slow down. Highway construction and maintenance work is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. Since the 1920s, 178 Caltrans

employees have died while on the job. For more information about Move Over, please visit http://www.dot.ca.gov/ moveover/.
