ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Taking advice isn't always easy for self-assured Rams and Ewes who think they know what's best. But it wouldn't hurt to listen to what close colleagues have to say.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your decision to be upfront with colleagues on a touchy matter causes some consternation at first. But in the end, your honesty wins their trust and admiration.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You know how to balance life's practical aspects with the poetic. This gives you a special edge this week in both your professional endeavors and your personal life.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) As in the past, someone again wants to share a secret with you, knowing it will be safe. But do you really want to be this person's confidante? Think about it.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Focus on keeping a balance between your home-related activities and your workplace responsibilities. Be mindful of both without obsessing over one or the other.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) As one of nature's straight shooters, you seek to correct misconceptions about a project. Do so, of course, but without giving away too much too soon.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change in plans is likely as you discover more facts about a possible commitment. Continue to ask questions and, if you're not sure about the answers, demand proof.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Creative pursuits continue to be strong in the gifted Goat's aspect. New friendships can come from sharing these experiences with like-minded art aficionados.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Be careful not to let that Leonine pride keep you from seeking wise, experienced counsel before making an important decision. A family member once again seeks your help.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Resolve lingering grumblings over your way of doing things by keeping your mind open to suggestions while continuing to show how your plans will work.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) That surge of Virgo energy drives you to take on more work assignments. Be careful you don't overdo it, or you might find yourself overdone: i.e., burned out.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The perceptive Piscean might find that changing course in midstream isn't as workable as it would seem. Explore this option carefully before making a decision.

Tehachapi Heritage League celebrates 40 years Forty years ago the newly-formed Tehachapi Heritage League was busy getting ready to open its first museum. This year the organization has a number of activities planned to help celebrate its 40th anniversary. The Tehachapi Museum opened on July 4, 1973, in a tiny building on Tehachapi Boulevard and moved to its present building — the former library building — on South Green Street in downtown Tehachapi in 1982. Across the street is the Errea House Museum, a restored home showing the rural lifestyle of Tehachapi, circa 1900 to 1930. Tehachapi Heritage League President Charles White said it has taken many people many years to create the opportunities for residents and visitors to have places to connect with local history. The current board recognizes that the work we've done was made possible by all the work in the past and we thank everyone who has helped build the organization and our museums over the years, he said. Both museums are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., and additionally on the first Friday of each month from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. as part of “First Friday Downtown” festivities. Additionally, special events at the

private residence near the museum for an evening of wine pairings with appetizers. Reservations are highly recommended as this much anticipated event is expected to sell out. • Saturday, July 27: A Step Back in Time to Old Tehachapi 11 a.m.-4 p.m. • Saturday, Aug. 17 & Sunday, Aug. 18: Mountain Festival Celebrations at the Museum, Sat. 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-4 p.m. • Monday, Sept. 2: Tehachapi Museum Garden Party, for museum docents and volunteers. • Sunday, Sept. 8: A Look at Climate Change with Meteorologist Miles Muzio, 4-6 p.m., $15, Beekay Theatre.


Tehachapi Heritage League board members, from left, Judy Reynolds, Charles White, Harold Cox and Del Troy, at the Tehachapi Museum. Other current board members are Ken Mazie, Debi Haynes and Rich Erdman. On May 18, visit a Tehachapi Museum in recognition of National Museum Day. Extra docents will be available to tell you about the Kawaiisu Exhibit, the Tehachapi Museum and the Errea House Museum. Open from noon to 4 p.m. museum during 2013 include: • Saturday, June 1: Yard Sale at the Errea House, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. • Saturday, June 15: Downtown Mystery Walk, 7 p.m., $20, limited to 50 people, 12 years of age and older.

• Thursday, July 4: Happy Birthday, Tehachapi Museum, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Help celebrate the 40th birthday of the Tehachapi Museum! • Saturday, July 13: An Evening of Wine Pairings 5-7 p.m., $25. Join us at a

Health & Fitness Ask the Doctor

When skin patches lose all color BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have vitiligo, and it keeps spreading over my body. My father had it on his legs. I'm an older lady of brown complexion. This vitiligo is so embarrassing. I wear slacks every day, except to church. Do you know of any cover-ups for it? --C. ANSWER: Vitiligo is the loss of special skin cells called melanocytes, cells that produce the pigment melanin, which gives skin its color. The loss comes about because of an immune attack on those pigment cells. Genes are one of the ingredients that lead to vitiligo. Your father is an example of the genetic influence. The skin patches devoid of melanocytes and melanin become chalky white and are most noticeable on people with dark skin. The patches appear on the face, in circles around the mouth and eyes, on the neck, trunk, arms and legs. Stronger varieties of cortisone in creams, lotions and

gels often can coax melanocytes back into the depigmented skin. Many users have enjoyed success with skin applications of pimecrolimus (Elidel cream) or tacrolimus (Protopic ointment). Ultraviolet light, along with the oral psoralen drugs, is another way of repigmenting vitiliginous skin. Quite a few people with vitiligo find it more convenient to apply cosmetic agents to cover the white patches and make them blend with adjacent skin. Covermark (800524-1120), Dermablend (800662-8011) and Cover Fx (416-665-7444) are three popular products. I've included the phone numbers of the manufacturers in case you cannot find the products in your area. The National Vitiligo Foundation, Inc., will provide you with information on the many

ways that vitiligo is treated. The website is, and the phone number (not toll-free) is 513-541-3903. You'll find the foundation to be a friend that can help you cope with vitiligo. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Our friend, age 86, has Alzheimer's disease. She sees a neurologist every four months. Some days, she is lucid; other days, she's out in left field. She lives alone and drives a car. She recently got lost, but recovered and came home safely. Her children live out of town. We, her friends, think the time has come for our friend to give up independent living. What criteria are used to make this decision? -- C.F. ANSWER: Your friend's lapses fill the criteria that indicate a need for assisted living. Although 50 percent of people with a degree of dementia make this decision for themselves, that leaves 50 percent who do not. Giving up one's home and one's car has unpleasant ramifications for

that half who want to continue living independently. Close relatives can convince these people that they need help. A doctor can step in and strongly advise such moves. You and your friends would do this woman a service by contacting her children and telling them exactly what you have told me. The booklet on Alzheimer's diseases discusses it and its treatments.

No sugar A bowl of frosted marshmallow flakes or a scoop of ice cream can be very tempting as nighttime snack. Sugary foods will cause a sudden spike in blood sugar levels, followed by a crash one to two hours later. This may lead to restlessness and nighttime wakening. Avoiding sugar will help relax the body before bed and enhance both depth of sleep and sleep quality.

Positivity We all know the feeling: grouchiness, drowsiness, lack of concentration. The National Sleep Foundation reports that sleep deprivation has been associated with over 100,000 car accidents a year, poor school

or job performance and behavioral problems. Getting a good night’s sleep sets you up for success and a more positive outlook to the day. DR.

Explore nature at Descanso Gardens BY MATTHEW MARTZ TEHACHAPI NEWS

Just over 100 miles from downtown Tehachapi is a 150acre gem that highlights the beauty of nature through an internationally renowned botanical collection and a variety of seasonal horticultural displays. Once owned by newspaper magnate E. Manchester Boddy, Descanso Gardens in the La Canada neighborhood of Los Angeles County stands as a symbol of one man’s love for botanical plants. Wanting to preserve the site, Boddy donated his gardens to the county in 1953 and since then it has been magnificently maintained for thousands of visitors to experience each year. But the gardens just aren’t for botanists; ornithologists (bird watchers) also enjoy the serene surroundings. And just past the five-acre rose garden with its collection of the All-America Rose Selections winners since 1940, is the bird observation station and lake, which provides a shelter and nesting area for a wide variety of birds, waterfowl and other animals.

Like a natural playground for winged and legged critters alike, each section of Descanso Gardens is unique, especially to southern California. Like the dryraked garden, modeled after a Shen garden in Kyoto. The Shen garden brings the spirit of the Fareast to the foothills of Los Angeles, providing spectacular fall foliage changes, which cloak the beautiful blue tile roofing of the full moon teahouse nestled in the midst of flowering branches and vines. There is also a Shinto bridge and a Japanese farmhouse that sit beside a meandering path, which leads directly to the Boddy house — a 12,000square-foot, 22-room mansion that served as the family’s residence during their time of ownership. Tucked into a hillside, today the house offers a rare glimpse of glamour from a bygone era and is open for tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. Other areas of the gardens include, nature’s table, an eightacre garden planted with fruit trees and seasonal vegetables

along with herbs and edible flowers, the harvest garden, lilac garden and the oak forest. While self-guided walks are the way most visitors enjoy the gardens, guided tram tours are available for a small fee. Another way to get a unique perspective is via the Enchanted Railroad, a 1/8 replica of a diesel train that travels a section of the gardens near the promenade. The railroad operates from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesdays and Fridays and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets for the railroad and the tram can be purchased at the visitor center where there is also a gift shop and the Descanso Café. Descanso Gardens is located at 1418 Descanso Dr., La Canada Flintridge and is open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General is $8, $6 for seniors, $3 for children 5 to 12 years and under 5 are free. Parking is also free. Because the gardens are an outside experience, all schedules are subject to weather and availability. It is advised to call ahead before visiting, 818-949-4200.

Why do turtles sold as pets have a size limit? Q&As from the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife BY CARRIE WILSON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Question: Is there a size limit on the sale of turtles that are sold as pets? (Robert Bruce, Antioch) Answer: Yes, federal and state laws require that turtles must have a carapace length of at least 4 inches to be imported, sold or distributed (California Code of Regulations Title 17, section 2612.1). This restric-


This is a Red-Eared Slider,a common turtle in the pet trade. They compete in the wild with our native Western Pond Turtle, so they should never be released.

tion was brought into effect under the Public Health Services Act by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1975 to address the problem of Salmonella infections in children. I have heard this size was determined to help prevent children from putting these small reptiles into their mouths. Prior to the ban there were an estimated 250,000 cases of turtle Salmonellosis in children and infants that were associated with pet turtles in the United States. For more information, please go to: http://exoticpets.about.c om/od/reptilesturtles/a/t urtlesales.htm.

How to legally exchange bear skulls and claws? Question: Are there any regulations prohibiting someone from giving me a bear skull or claws if legally taken either in Cali-

fornia or out of state? No money or goods would be exchanged. Would I need to have proof to show where the parts came from or who gave them to me? (Tom H.) Answer: No. If the skull or claws were taken from a bear in California, and as long as no money or goods were exchanged for the acquisition, you may legally receive and possess these bear parts. If the bear parts are from a bear taken in another state, then you will need to follow the regulations for sale or gifting of bear parts from that state and submit a “Declaration for Entry” form, available online at

Sabiki rig Question: I frequently fish at the Point Arena pier but am not clear on a specific rule. I know you may only have two hooks on one fishing line, but is it legal to use a Sabiki rig with multiple small hooks to catch bait

fish? (Steve Lum) Answer: When fishing from Point Arena pier, you can use a fishing rod with multiple hooks as long as you don't have rockfish, cabezon, greenling or lingcod in your possession. If you happen to catch one of these species while using more than two hooks on your line, you must release the fish. You are limited to no more than one line and two hooks when fishing for rockfish, cabezon, greenling and lingcod, or if these species are in possession. On a public pier, you can use up to two fishing appliances (rod and reel, hoop net, crab trap, etc.) with no restrictions on the number of hooks (unless you are targeting the species mentioned above or have them in your possession).

Why early stop shooting times for turkeys? Question: I have been turkey hunting in California for several years and always wondered why the

shooting times are limited until only 4 pm. I have heard it protects them so they can return to roost in the evening, but this makes no sense since there is an over-abundance of turkeys in California, more than a lot of other states. Many other states allow turkey hunting until sundown, similar to big game. What’s the reason for this early shooting stop time? (Dave Johannes, Modesto) Answer: Shooting hours for the spring wild turkey season is always one-half hour before sunrise to 4 p.m. The reason for the early stop time in the spring (versus the stop time of sunset in the fall) is because the spring season occurs during turkey breeding season. Only the toms (and bearded hens) may be taken in the spring to allow the hens to nest successfully. The goal is to maximize the opportunities for hunters to take turkeys while protecting nesting hens. Setting this

early shooting stop time gives the birds a break from hunting pressure, allows the toms to return to the roost and the hens to get back to their nests. Historically, the stop time was 1 p.m., but as wild turkey numbers have flourished, the stop hunting time was moved to 4 p.m. Turkeys typically roost communally and may have only one or no more than a few trees where they roost at night. They become more vulnerable toward the end of the day as they return to their preferred roost. If the turkeys are disturbed along the way by gun shots, they may select unfamiliar roosting areas, thus making themselves more vulnerable to predation.

While she cannot personally answer everyone’s questions, she will select a few to answer each week in this column. Please contact her at

This Pinot Noir-based red blend features fresh, dark fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry with notes of caramel and brown sugar. The wine's deep red color reflects shades of a bright California sunset and provides a perfect sipping experience as the day winds down and your happy hour begins.

bowl. Shape into 8 very flat patties. Grill, broil or pan fry for 3 minutes. Turn and top with cheese; cook for 2 minutes more. Serve on lightly toasted rolls with tomato, bacon and arugula. Recipe Tip: Dress arugula with a bit of olive oil and balsamic for extra flavor.

pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. To prepare fries, peel potatoes and cut into long 1/4 to 1/2-inch-thick strips; place in a large bowl of ice water to keep from browning. Remove a handful at a time and pat very dry between paper towels. Drop into 1 inch of hot oil (oil is hot enough when a few drops of water added start to pop) and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Drain well on paper towels and repeat with remaining potatoes. (Keep warm in a 300F oven.) Place in a large bowl and toss with remaining sea salt and spice mixture. Serve immediately with aioli.

Practical Money Matters

Trim your wedding costs


Weddings have always been big business, but I was shocked to see how expensive they've become in the 17 years since my wife and I got married. According to the annual Real Weddings Study, the average wedding in the U.S. now costs $28,427, and that doesn't even count the honeymoon. Wait, it gets worse. Among the more than 17,500 surveyed brides who got married in 2012, the average amount paid for a wedding dress was $1,211. On average they also spent $204 per wedding guest and dropped $12,905 for the reception venue. There are many ways to rein in wedding-related costs while still having a memorable event. Here are a few suggestions: • Create a budget. Unless you're a professional wedding planner, you'll probably be floored by how many expenses weddings can amass, including: wedding and engagement rings, invitations, postage, marriage license, clergy and location fees, flowers, bridal gown and groom's tuxedo, rehearsal dinner and reception, photography, catering, DJ or band, limousine, parking attendants, tips, gifts for wedding participants and honeymoon expenses. • Shop around. Bridal expos are a good way to meet a lot of vendors and gather ideas. Just don't get caught up in the excitement and commit to anything before you've done follow-up research. Some tips: Bring along someone from the wedding party as well as a trustworthy friend who isn't emotionally and financially connected to the wedding. You may feel pressured by vendors to sign contracts or put down deposits, but it's probably wiser to take their contact information and research them first. Create a separate email account for wedding vendor communications. Once you sign up for one offer or contest, believe me, your inbox will be swamped. After you've settled on vendors, get signed contracts that specify dates,

products, prices, deposit and payment terms, cancellation policies, liability insurance and whether tax and gratuities are included.

Here are a few suggestions for trimming costs: • Date flexibility. You'll get more bang for your buck offseason – a June wedding might cost 20 to 30 percent more than one in April or October. • Have your florist use in-season flowers. • Daytime weddings are often cheaper than evening events. • Instead of a hotel, consider lesscostly alternative reception venues like community centers, museums, city park clubhouses or other public facilities looking to earn extra income. Ask whether they have their own tables, chairs, sound and lighting systems; if not, add equipment rental costs into the equation. • A buffet dinner reception could save you $15 or more per guest compared to a plated dinner, because you're not paying for table service. Save even more by hosting an afternoon reception and serving lunch or hors d'oeuvres. • If you're hosting a large reception, have a smaller display cake for the cutting ceremony, with a sheet cake stored in the kitchen. • Serve wine, beer and one signature cocktail, instead of offering a full bar. • Consider renting or buying a second-hand wedding dress from a consignment shop, or an online specialty site. The same goes for grooms wear. • Hiring a disc jockey instead of a live band will save hundreds of dollars; plus you get a broader selection of music and a built-in emcee to move things along. One last budgeting tip: Limit the number of guests to ensure you can have a meaningful interaction with each. Remember, spending just one minute apiece with 300 guests would take five hours.

Critter’s Corner

Teaching young pups and old dogs alike BY ELSA LARSEN CONTRIBUTING WRITER

It's Spring and now that the snow has melted (for most of us), many would-be dog owners are turning their attention to rescue lists, shelters and breeders. As I look at my own dog, a 10 year old Labrador Retriever named Lincoln curled up on the couch next to me, I cannot help but think about the time when she will no longer

be around. Who will come after her? I find myself vacillating back and forth between pup or older dog, pure bred or mixed breed. Though I may be unclear about which direction I would go in choosing a dog, I know for certain which skills that I would like to teach my new dog-any dog for that matter, be she young or old. Before I go into what I would consider my top

five skills for dogs, I think it's important to understand some of the things that may influence how you teach a particular skill. Factors such as age, confidence, physical limitations, and motivation will each play a part in how you train. Let's address each one of these factors individually. Age: Puppies are blank slates and have had less time to rehearse and commit to unwanted behaviors. You can have real influence on a puppy by insuring that he or she has the continued opportunity to interact with other puppies and dogs after they leave their litter and by purposefully introducing them to as many sights, sounds and smells as you can (in a non threatening way) to help to create a confident, social animal. By managing their environment, you can keep unwanted behaviors from happening in the first place. But a puppy can be tough. They have limited concentration, they chew and eliminate indiscriminately and they require lots and lots of attention. If you choose to adopt an older dog, you may have to spend some time resolving and managing problem behaviors first. Your ability to socialize a dog beyond its "critical period" (to 12 weeks) is

limited, so while you may be able to influence somewhat your dog's confidence, pretty much what you see is what you get. But unlike puppies an older dog may already have progressed through their super destructive chew period and with proper supervision should have the capacity to be easily housetrained. Training an adolescent dog comes with its own set of challenges. Dogs hit adolescence around five months and adolescence can last until the

dog is two or three depending on the breed and individual animal. Adolescence is characterized by more independent thinking; dogs will become less interested in you and more interested in the environment. Dogs go through their final phase of teething during this time. There is also a fear period associated with this phase - confident dogs may suddenly turn shy and fearful. Acquiring an adolescent dog will require that you be consistent in your management and training. Doing so will insure that you both make it through this time happy and whole. Confidence or the lack thereof: Learning is stressful. Keep an eye on your dog while training and watch for signs of stress - yawning, bows, scratching in the middle of a training session, shake-offs (like the dog is trying to shake off water). These behaviors don't necessarily indicate that your dog is unduly traumatized by learning, in fact, there is a good type of stress (called eustress) that actually enhances learning. Distress, the bad kind of stress, is what you are trying to avoid. You can do that by keep-

ing your training sessions short (three to five minutes for newbies.) Raise your criteria gradually, for example, if you are working on a downstay with the dog alone in the kitchen and you are asking for a 30 second stay, if you bring the dog outdoors to work on a stay understand this context will be much more difficult for the dog to perform in. Perhaps you work on a five second stay to begin with. Don't make things so difficult for your dog that he gives up. Set your dog up to be successful. The mores successes your dog has under his doggy belt, the more confident he will become. You will see an animal that loves learning and will therefore be more inclined to work for you even in the most difficult kind of situations. Avoiding stress will keep your dog engaged in the training process. Physical limitations: A dog's capacity to perform certain tasks can be limited by physical impairments. Limitations such as deafness and blindness would be obvious impediments (but not insurmountable, by the way) but something like advanced age or lameness or injury See MOTIVATION • Page 18

Host a deliciously fresh brunch (Family Features) Meals just taste better when you make them with fresh ingredients. So when you're hosting a brunch, look for recipes that make the most of fresh, seasonal flavors, and ingredients that come from close to home. • In-season fruits and vegetables tend to be better quality, have better flavor, and be less expensive. Whether you grow them yourself or get them at a farmers market or grocery store, take advantage of vitaminrich produce at its peak. Use them in recipes or serve as part of a fruit and cheese plate. • Turn fresh produce into a beautiful centerpiece. Fill a bowl with colorful whole fruits and fresh flowers; or add citrus slices and small fruits to a bowl of water with floating candles. • Plan a variety of easy-to-make brunch dishes to satisfy guests. Quiches with fresh vegetables, make-ahead savory casseroles, and fresh fruit medleys or leafy green salads all make great brunch choices. This delightful brunch recipe for Strawberry Ricotta Stuffed Whole Grain French Toast pairs ripe, juicy strawberries with Roman Meal whole grain bread and a decadent creamy filling. A good source of vitamin D and fiber, and an excellent source of calcium, Roman Meal Original (Sandwich and Round Top) bread has 21 grams of whole grains per serving. And because it's baked in regional bakeries across the United States, it's never frozen or shipped long distances, giving you another way to add freshness to your table. You can find more deliciously fresh brunch ideas at

Strawberry Ricotta Stuffed Whole Grain French Toast Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 8 minutes Servings: 4 • 1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar • 4 large eggs, beaten • 1/2 cup milk • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided • 8 slices Roman Meal bread • 2 cups fresh, sliced strawberries, divided • Nonstick cooking spray • Powdered sugar • Maple syrup (optional) Combine ricotta cheese, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla in small bowl; mix well. Combine eggs, milk and remaining vanilla in shallow bowl; mix well. Spread ricotta-sugar mixture evenly over 4 bread slices. Top each slice with 1/4 cup sliced strawberries and remaining bread slices to form 4 sandwiches. Spray large skillet with nonstick cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Carefully dip sandwiches in egg mixture, coating both sides. Cook on each side for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and top with remaining strawberries. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.

may also inhibit certain behaviors or the capacity to process information. With an older dog you may need to modify your expectations. Does advanced age prohibit your elderly dog from being able to sit? Perhaps you teach her a solid down stay instead. Take your time, allow the old girl enough time to process information. Contrary to popular belief, you can teach an old dog new tricks. Motivation: To teach a new skill, your dog needs to be motivated to learn.
