Early Deadlines! The Tehachapi News office will be closed on Monday, May 27, in recognition of Memorial Day. We will have early deadlines for the editions of Tuesday, May 28 and Wednesday, May 29. Display ad deadline for these issues will be advanced 24 hours to Tuesday, May 21 at noon.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you might prefer moving forward at a steady pace, it might be a good idea to stop and reassess your plans. You could find a good reason to make a change at this time.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Taking time out of your busy schedule might be the best way to handle that sensitive private matter. It will help reassure everyone involved about your priorities.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Just when you thought you had everything planned to the smallest detail, you get some news that could unsettle things. But a timely explanation helps put it all back on track.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Insist on full disclosure by all parties before agreeing to be part of a "great deal." What you learn should help you decide whether to go with it or not.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Home and work continue to compete for your attention. But you handle it well by giving each its proper due. Someone you trust offers valuable advice. Listen to it.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your decision to protect the secret that was entrusted to you might irk some people. But it also wins you the admiration of those who value trust and loyalty.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Unsettling news creates a difficult but not impossible situation. Continue to follow your planned routine, but keep your mind open to a possible change down the line.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Creative activities take on a practical approach as you realize you might be able to market your work. Ask for advice from someone experienced in this area.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Lick your wounded pride if you like, but it's a better idea to find out why your suggestions were rejected. What you learn could help you deal with an upcoming situation.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) If you're suddenly a bit unsure about your decision, ask trusted colleagues and/or friends or family members for suggestions that could help resolve your doubts.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Feeling a bit listless? No wonder. You might be pushing too hard to finish everything on your to-do list. Cutting it down could help get your energy levels up.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A workplace situation could get stormy. But stay on course until there's a solution that meets with everyone's approval, and things can finally calm down.

Born This Week: You keep an open mind on most matters, making you the confidante of choice for people who need your honest counsel. Š2012 King Features Synd., Inc., provided as entertainment.

On the Cover

Memorial Day began after Civil War, was called ‘Decoration Day’

PHOTO BY MATTHEW MARTZ/TEHACHAPI NEWS

A Memorial Day service will be held at the Bakersfield National Cemetery, 30338 Bear Mountain Blvd., in Arvin, at 9 a.m., on May 26. Photo on the cover: Memorial Day ceremony that took place in 2012, at Philip Marx Central Park in downtown Tehahcapi.

Memorial Day will be observed in Tehachapi and at National Cemetery Tehachapi traditionally observes Memorial Day with a special ceremony in Philip Marx Central Park at Mojave and "E" Street near Downtown. Although there is sometimes a parade, one is not planned for this year. Everyone is invited to attend the ceremony in the park. Some chairs will be provided, but you may bring your own. This year’s event will have an honor guard, posting of

the color, tribute to all warriors and departed comrades, placement of a memorial wreath, rifle salute and more. Free refreshments will be offered after the ceremony, which is sponsored by the VFW, the American Legion and the Daughters of the American Revolution (TomoKahni Chapter.)

National Cemetery Bakersfield National

Cemetery will hold a Memorial Day Service at 9 a.m. on Sunday, May 26. The cemetery is located at 30338 E. Bear Mountain Blvd., Arvin. In recognition of Memorial Day, national cemeteries across the country place flags on gravesides. Youth groups or individuals who want to participate are invited to meet at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 25. For more information call 661-867-2250.

Memorial Day — a national holiday originally called "Decoration Day" — will be observed on Monday, May 27. According to the Veterans Administration, the holiday was first observed three years after the end of the Civil War. On that day, May 5, 1868, the Grand Army of the Republic established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. By the end of the 19th century, Memorial Day ceremonies were being held on May 30 throughout the nation. State legislatures passed proclamations designating the day, and the Army and Navy adopted regulations for proper observance at their facilities. It was not until after World War I, however, that the day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars. In 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday by an act of Congress, though it is still often called Decoration Day. It was then also placed on the last Monday in May, as were some other federal holidays. To ensure the sacrifices of America ’s fallen heroes are never forgotten, in December 2000, the U.S. Congress passed and the president signed into law “The National Moment of Remembrance Act,” P.L. 106-579, creating the White House Commission on the National Moment of Remembrance. The commission’s charter is to “encourage the people of the United States to give something back to their country, which provides them so much freedom and opportunity” by encouraging and coordinating commemorations in the United States of Memorial Day and the National Moment of Remembrance. The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. As Moment of Remembrance founder Carmella LaSpada states: “It’s a way we can all help put the memorial back in Memorial Day.”

Health & Fitness Ask the doctor

Rapid stroke treatment saves brain cells BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: While having dinner with my father, he suddenly had a blank look and stopped eating. He couldn't speak clearly. My brothers and I got him onto a couch, and he stayed there for about 15 minutes. Finally, someone suggested he might be having a stroke, and we called 911. In the emergency room, the doctor had a CT scan done and then gave him a clot-busting drug. It worked unbelievably. He regained his speech and could move. Is this common? I thought strokes came from bleeding in the brain. What's going on? -T.M. ANSWER: Strokes come in two varieties. The less-common kind is bleeding from a broken brain artery, often one that has an innate weakness in its wall. That's an aneurysm. It has an explosive onset and produces a "worst headache ever." This

is a hemorrhagic stroke, accounting for 15 percent of strokes. The more-common kind of stroke is an ischemic (is-KEYmick) stroke, one that results from a blockage of blood flow through an artery serving the brain. It's similar to what happens in a heart attack when a heart artery is plugged up. Your dad had this kind of stroke. The CT scan your dad had is one way of differentiating a hemorrhagic stroke from an ischemic one. Signs of both kinds of stroke are a sudden inability to speak, an inability to understand the spoken word, loss of sensations from parts of the body, weakness of a leg or arm and vision changes. Deprived of blood, brain

cells and tissues die fairly quickly. As in your father's case, clot-dissolving drugs can establish circulation to the brain area deprived of blood. If such treatment is given within three to four hours from the onset of symptoms, people can make a complete or near-complete recovery of function. The booklet on strokes provides information on this common and often tragic malady. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 902W, 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: My son is 33. During his last visit, he happened to mention that he had floaters in his eyes, and they drove him crazy. He didn't go into detail about this, but I would like to know about floaters and their

implications. I never had them. -- L.H. ANSWER: Floaters are dark, small spots that dart across a person's field of vision when the person moves his eyes. They're deposits of debris in the vitreous, a gellike substance that fills the entire back twothirds of the eye. Nearsighted people are prone to devel-

oping them. I bet your son is nearsighted. There is no treatment for floaters. People learn to deal with them. A sudden onset of a large number of floaters indicates that the retina is tearing away from its attachment to the back of the eye. Detachment of the vitreous can do the same. If such an event

takes place, an immediate examination by an ophthalmologist is mandatory. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

On Friday, June 21, the Alzheimer’s Association invites the community to honor those facing Alzheimer’s disease by participating in The Longest Day®. From sunrise to sunset, the Association urges people to gather their friends, family or coworkers as a team to make a difference in the lives of families living with Alzheimer’s. Each team member is asked to raise $100 for each hour they do what they love to do — from sunup to sundown. The challenge is to have the team participate for the whole day, either simultaneously or one after the other, relay-style. Run.

Walk. Hike. Paddle. Swim. Dance. Make music. Play bridge. The challenge is up to each team. For 16 consecutive hours June 21, teams will complete their chosen activities to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. For people facing Alzheimer’s disease, the challenge is every day. For you, it’s just this one day. Start a team to show you’re in it until Alzheimer’s is finished. Alzheimer’s disease is global epidemic. Worldwide, more than 35 million people are living with the disease. • Alzheimer’s disease

is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. It kills more Americans than diabetes, and more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. • More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. • More than 15 million Americans are Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers, fulfilling a financially, emotionally and physically draining role. • Alzheimer’s disease is the ultimate thief — of memories, of independence, of control, and ultimately, of life.

Register online at alz.org/thelongestday or call 800-272-3900. The tools you need to be successful are provided for you. Now is the time to show those facing Alzheimer’s disease that they are not alone. Now is the time to say: I will never give up. I will never back down. I will defeat Alzheimer’s. The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research and has provided reliable information and care consultation; created supportive services for families; increased funding for dementia research; and influenced public policy changes. For information visit alz.org/cacentral or call 800-272-3900.

health insurance; to get accurate information on different plans; and to make apples-to apples comparisons of private insurance plans. You'll get comprehensive information about benefits and quality, side by side with factors about price, in order for you to make the best coverage decisions. No matter where you live, you'll be able to buy quality insurance from qualified private health plans that must cover a

comprehensive set of benefits, including doctor visits, preventive care, hospital visits and prescriptions. At the Marketplace, you'll also be able to learn, with a single application, if you or a family member qualifies for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program, or a new kind of tax credit that will lower your monthly health insurance premiums right away.

Journey

Morro Bay State Park, a cool summer getaway BY MATTHEW MARTZ TEHACHAPI NEWS

Looking out over the water to windsculpted sand dunes, Morro Bay State Park offers a cool retreat from the summertime heat. The park’s lagoon and natural bay habitat provides a multitude of opportunities for sailing, fishing, hiking and bird watching, and makes a great day or weekend journey for the entire family. Surrounded by eucalyptus and cypress trees the 2,700-acre park also boasts one of the state park’s best campgrounds, with nearly 100 sites for tents and RVs up to 30-feet long, for those that are interested in an extended stay. It is one of the most affordable spots along the California coast, with campsites starting at around $35 per night. Besides an extensive trail system that meanders throughout the park and a nearby pristine saltwater marsh estuary that supports a thriving bird population, there is also a vibrant marina with boat and kayak rentals, a horse camping site, an 18-hole public golf course, a restaurant and a museum. Within minutes of the nearby Heron Rookery, the Museum of Natural History houses a variety of exhibits that illustrate Morro Bay’s geology and oceanography, as well as its cultural

history and early Native American life. The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and entry fees are $3 for adults and free to children 16 and under. Inside the museum guests are invited to experience the past and the present through lectures, puppet shows, videos and docent led tours. While just outside visitors can stroll through the Chumash garden to get a view of how the region’s indigenous Indian tribe used the area’s natural resources in their daily lives, including nearby Morro Rock. Sometimes called the “Gibraltar of the Pacific,” the Chumash tribe considered Morro Rock to be a sacred site, which in ancient times was used in their annual solstice ceremony. Today, the massive 50-acre volcanic plug is the last in a chain of extinct volcanoes formed about 23 million years ago, and in 1968 became State Landmark #801. Since then, the area around it has been designated a bird sanctuary for the flocks of Peregrine falcons, egrets and blue herons. Besides bird watching, the estuary is also a popular spot for water sports of all types, and perhaps the best way to see the wonders of Morro Bay is by kayak or canoe, getting a up close and personal view of the bay’s seals, sea

A favorite local tradition is to paddle from Morro Bay State Park to the massive four-mile sand spit that protects the bay from the open ocean for a picnic. So, if you’re thinking about an affordable and fun day trip or even an overnight experience, what better way to enjoy southern California, than play-

ing and staying on the water at Morro Bay State Park. Located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the park is a perfect summer destination just threehours drive from downtown Tehachapi. However, before packing up the family and heading out, it is advised to call the park for hours of operation and reservations at 805-772-2560.

Fish & Wildlife

Can I practice my archery by shooting down a dirt road? Q&As from the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife BY CARRIE WILSON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Question: My neighbor who lives a few houses down from me has a 15year-old son who shoots his BB gun in his backyard. I used to shoot my bow in my backyard until my dad found out it’s illegal. I am 13 and live in the mountains of Southern California (close to San Bernardino) and am hoping it might be legal to practice my archery by shooting down a dirt road? Can you please let me know ASAP? Thanks. (Ashmanger) Answer: Generally, Fish and Game Code laws only regulate the use of archery equipment or firearms while hunting. However, the same rules for firearms apply to archery equipment in this situation – you may not shoot over or across a road or within 150 yards

PHOTO COURTESY OF MICHIGAN DNR

Is it legal to shoot your bow in your backyard. of a neighbor’s home, barns or outbuildings, even if just archery target shooting (Fish and Game Code, section 3004). If you are on a private road on private property (off the public roadway), no Fish and Game Code law prohibits target practice with your bow and arrow. Beyond this, different counties and communities may have more restrictive ordinances that they enforce so you should check with your local law enforcement office for this information. The most important factor to always keep in mind is public safety.

Well-traveled roads and highways, or even those occasionally traveled, are not appropriate places to shoot. If you were to injure another person or livestock, or damage property, you could be subject to civil and possibly criminal prosecution. While shooting even just off a road may be legal, it may not be safe.

Hooks for salmon in San Francisco Bay Question: When fishing for salmon from the bank in the San Francisco Bay with spinning lures, is a single barbless hook ok or does it have to be a bar-

bless circle hook attached to the spinning lure? (Terry D.) Answer: Barbless circle hooks are only required when fishing with bait and angling by any means other than trolling. Since you're not using bait, no circle hooks are required, even though you are not trolling. You must be doing both things - using bait, and fishing in a manner that is not trolling - to be required to use barbless circle hooks. In addition, you should be using no more than two singlepoint, single-shank barbless hooks with your spinning lure (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 27.80.)

water is hazardous to marine life. (Ray I.) Answer: It is not legal to spray WD-40 on your fishing lures as an attractant. The same goes for any substance that may be harmful to fish (e.g. sunscreen).WD-40 contains petroleum and is specifically prohibited by law to be deposited or introduced into the waters of the state (Fish and Game Code, section 5650). When it comes to sunscreen, I would just try to use discretion as any foreign substance, even sunscreen, may carry chemicals that may be harmful to fish and other aquatic life if introduced in large enough quantities.

Fishing attractant or pollutant?

How to determine private vs public property?

Question: I have heard that using WD-40 as a fish attractant works well. Is it legal to use? There seems to be much confusion as to what is actually in WD-40. I would also like to know if the sunscreen I put on before entering the

Question: How do I find if a body of water is legal to fish out of? I am wondering about a local lake with a public road that leads up to it. There are no private property signs

posted anywhere. However, from a boat you can see signs are posted in some of the yards. (Anonymous) Answer: Even though private property perimeters are required to be either fenced, under cultivation, or posted with no trespassing signs at 1/3 of a mile intervals (Penal Code Section 602.8) so the public knows or can determine correctly if the property is private, it’s best to stay on the safe side. If you can’t find signs specifically prohibiting access, trespassing and fishing, you may want to contact your local sheriff’s office, which should be able to define which waters and properties are public, which are private and where the boundaries are.

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

Guiltless summer entertaining (Family Features) Counting carbs for swimsuit season doesn't mean you have to miss out on the sun and fun. Savor every moment with these tips for summer entertaining on a diet. Ambiance - Lighting and dÈcor are an essential part of any festive gathering. Keep ambient lighting simple with scentless candles, paper lanterns or luminaires. Another easy way to set the mood is with a party playlist. Invite guests to RSVP with their favorite songs and include them on your soirÈe soundtrack. Light and Simple One of the benefits of summer entertaining is being able to take advantage of gorgeous weather during the day and evening. When dining al fresco, it is important to keep meals light and simple, especially when watching your figure. A low-carb diet, such as the Atkins Diet, inspires great meal options that are diverse and flavorful for summer months. Beverages - Summer means sunshine and longer days, so it's important to hydrate. Drink at least 64 ounces of water a day, especially when outside. Add a festive twist by infusing water with different flavors like mint, lemon and orange. If you're looking for something a little more exciting, try white wine sangria, which is a light, low-carb drink option. Seasonal - When entertaining, consider using plenty of seasonal vegetables and flowers, such as avocados, cucumbers and hydrangeas. Sticking to seasonal ingredients and dÈcor will help keep your budget down and play up the natural tastes and smells of summer. These delicious, Atkins-friendly Summer Rolls are a great recipe to serve during summer soirÈes as the traditional rice paper wrapping is replaced with lettuce leaves and incorporates fresh seafood and vegetables.

Are the 70 percent of the developing world's adult population with no formal bank account doomed to a life of economic uncertainty and financial illiteracy? If a woman's culture dictates that she should always put her family's financial needs ahead of her own, can she learn to set aside money for her own retirement without feeling guilty? These are just some of the complex issues raised at the seventh annual Financial Literacy and Education Summit hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and Visa Inc. Renowned U.S. and international financial experts and journalists led a lively discussion – and fielded Twitter questions from roughly 2,000 participants – around the theme, "Improving Women's Financial Literacy & Capabilities Globally." Fascinating details revealed include: Richard Cordray, Director of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, noted that "a large majority of K-12 teachers say that personal finance should be taught in school, yet less than a third say they've taught lessons about money, and more than half feel unqualified to teach their state's financial literacy standards." Linah Mohohlo, Governor, Bank of Botswana, emphasized that it's not only important to teach women about money management, but also to teach them activities to avoid – such as Ponzi schemes or lending money to people without setting repayment and interest terms. Bernie Ripoll, Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer, Australia, added that women should feel empowered to ask questions or say no if they're asked to invest in something they don't understand. According to South African Financial Journalist Maya Fischer-French, among the biggest financial hurdles an overwhelming number of women in her country face is their status as single mothers – around 56 percent. Of those, only about 21 percent can rely on financial help from their children's fathers. On the question of whether finan-

cial literacy hinges on access to traditional bank accounts, Egyptian Journalist Amira Salah-Ahmend said roughly 90 percent of the Egyptian population is unbanked, meaning most of their transactions are unregulated and therefore more risky. Mexican Journalist Adina Chelminsky added that many third-world people have much easier access to credit through informal lending channels than to bank products. "The idea is not to formalize all this informal lending, but rather for banks and governments to think outside the box and develop new products that cater to women who have minimal savings," she said. The panelists shared some alternative financing methods that are already in place and thriving: Microfinance, where organizations like Kiva make small loans to people who can't get credit from traditional banks, is helping women achieve financial stability in many underdeveloped nations. For example, a young woman in Pakistan or Mexico can now take out a microloan to buy a sewing machine, thereby creating her own thriving business. Also in Pakistan, a large telecommunications company has partnered with a microfinancer to provide "branchless banking" via mobile phone technology to people far removed from banks. "We've got 45,000 agents transacting this kind of business now compared to only 13,000 in the branch network," explained Yaseen Anwar, Governor, State Bank of Pakistan. Bottom line: Women throughout the world face unique economic and financial literacy challenges. The key is for governments, financial institutions, educators and entrepreneurs to work together to devise financial tools and educational materials that can reach the female half of the world's population – the younger, the better.

Plant a tree and watch your landscape change for the better Selection of trees for planting in a home landscape depends on the desired effect and the purpose the trees will satisfy in the landscape, explains Tchukki Andersen, BCMA, CTSP* and staff arborist with the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA). "Will they attract birds to the area?" she asks. "Shade a patio? Screen an unsightly view? Enhance the appearance of the home? Identify an entrance or exit? Trees can provide contrast and relief from surrounding buildings and create seasonal interest in areas near the home," says Andersen. TCIA advises homeowners to consider the following factors when selecting a tree: • hardiness (ability of the plant to survive extremes of winter cold and summer heat) • mature height and spread • growth rate • cleanliness • type of root system • moisture requirements • space available above ground and below ground • maintenance require-

ments • available at local nursery • ornamental effects, such as branching habit, texture, and color of bark, flower, fruit and foliage; and whether the tree is evergreen or deciduous A professional tree care company can help you determine which tree species both perform well in your local area and are suited to your desired planting site. Arborists often do a close analysis of the specific planting site to determine the susceptibility or resistance to environmental conditions, such as: • disease and insect problems that may limit your selections • the prior use of the planting site • soil conditions, such as poor drainage, high or low pH, and soil nutrition • the presence or absence of channelized winds • the location of utilities, both above and below ground, because they are site conditions that dictate plant choice and location • the relationship of the plant to roads, walkways and security lighting

tenance costs. Do not plant trees that will grow 25 feet or taller under or near overhead power lines. Do not forget the underground utilities. Out-of-sight does not mean that they would not have to be serviced at some point. Call 811 for the national "Call before you dig" hotline before selecting a planting site. Permanent plantings such as trees should be spaced to allow utility service. Ground-level utility structures such as transformers and individual service connections require space to be serviced. A minimum of 10 feet clearance after the tree has grown to maturity will help avoid any possible electrical hazards.

Where to plant?

TRees make long-lasting, positive contributions to your landscape.

Is there enough space to plant a tree? The space available at the specific site and mature

tree size are important considerations and addressing these limits will go a long way toward reducing main-

Community ordinances may restrict planting of trees near power lines, parking strips, street lights, sewers, traffic control signs and signals, sidewalks and property lines. Municipalities may require planting permits for trees planted on city property. City codes often require that trees on city property be maintained by the city, so citizens

planting an improper selection can cause problems for themselves and the municipality.

Find a Professional A professional arborist can assess your landscape and work with you to determine the best trees and shrubs to plant for your existing landscape. Contact the Tree Care Industry Association, a public and professional resource on trees and arboriculture since 1938. Celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, TCIA has more than 2,000 member companies who recognize stringent safety and performance standards and who are required to carry liability insurance. TCIA also has the nation's only Accreditation program that helps consumers find tree care companies that have been inspected and accredited based on: adherence to industry standards for quality and safety; maintenance of trained, professional staff; and dedication to ethics and quality in business practices.

Safety tips for traveling with your furry friends Memorial Day symbolizes the start of summer for you and your pet. Before you start planning trips to the beach and summer getaways, keep in mind that it's important to plan ahead for pet travel and always keep the best interests of your furry, four-legged friend in mind. Traveling with your pet can be a wonderful and bonding experience or a not so pleasant one. It's all a matter of proper planning and preparation. Here are the top tips to ensure your Memorial Day getaway with your pet is a safe one. No Heads Out the Window: Although many pets find that sticking their head out the window is the best part of the road trip, it's not safe. Your pet can easily be injured by flying debris. This should go without saying, but never travel with a pet in the back of a pickup truck. Some states have laws restricting such transport and it is always dangerous. Frequent Pit Stops:

Always provide frequent bathroom and exercise breaks. Most travel service areas have designated areas for walking your pet. Be sure to stay in this area particularly when you pet needs a potty break, and of course, bring along a bag to pick up after your pet. When outside your vehicle, make sure that your pet is always on a leash and wearing a collar with a permanent and temporary travel identification tag. Proper Hydration: During your pit stops be sure to provide your pet with some fresh water to wet their whistle. Occasionally traveling can upset your pet's stomach. Take along ice cubes, which are easier on your pet than large amounts of water. Watch the Food Intake: It is recommended that you keep feeding to a minimum during travel. Be sure to feed them their regular pet food and resist the temptation to give them some of your

fast food burger or fries (that never has a good ending!). Don't Leave Them Alone: Never leave your pet unattended in a parked vehicle. On warm days, the temperature in your vehicle can rise to 120 degrees in minutes, even with the windows slightly open. In addition, an animal left alone in a

vehicle is an open invitation to pet thieves. Practice Restraint: Be sure that your pet is safely restrained in your vehicle. Utilizing a pet safety harness, travel kennel, vehicle pet barrier, or pet car seat are the best ways to keep your pet safe. They not only protect your pet from injury, but they help by keeping them from dis-

Pet & Rescue

tracting you as you drive. A safety harness functions like a seatbelt. While most pets will not have a problem adjusting to it, you may want to let them wear the harness by itself a few times before using it in the vehicle. If your pet prefers a travel kennel, be sure it is well ventilated and stabilized. Many pet owners prefer vehicle barriers, particularly for larger pets. Vehicle barriers are best suited for SUVs. Smaller pets are best suited for pet car seats. The car seat is secured in the back seat using a seat belt and your pet is secured in the car seat with a safety harness. In addition to it's safety features, a pet car seat will prop up your smaller pet, allowing them to better look out the window. No matter what method you choose, back seat travel is always safer for your pet.

Topper

Tiny Topper My name is Topper, I’m a young seven pound pure-bred male Chihuahua that Save Tehachapi’s Orphaned Pets saved from a highkill shelter. All I need for my second chance at life and is wonderful for you to welcome me in to your heart and home (I have good manners, ride well in the car, play well with others, and I am housetrained). To adopt tiny Topper, please call Janis at 661-599-6400 or Save Tehachapi’s Orphaned Pets, 661-823-4100, menu #2.

Our little Breezy was abandoned in the desert out by Edwards Air Force Base. Considering the size of her ears, she probably flew across the desert in no time. Breezy is still a pup, probably born in June 2012. She plays hard, sleeps hard and eats like there is no tomorrow, and for her, she probably thought there would not be a tomorrow. Breezy gets along well with the Chihuahua pack that she lives with. She has a sweet nature and loves to be held, petted and cuddled. She sleeps in a kennel or crate at night and really likes going outside to do her business or she uses a potty patch indoors. Breezy probably has some Chihuahua in her but maybe a little Doxie as well. She has yet to be leash trained. Breezy is spayed, up to date on

Fluffy

Cute Fluffy My name is Fluffy and I am around a year old. A nice elderly lady rescued me when I was a teenager and got me fixed. She has a little old dog and old cat that I do ok with but she wants me to get a home where I can live out my life since I have a lot of years left in me. Since I was rescued I have been an indoor only cat. For more information on me and others, contact the the Tehachapi Humane Society at 661-823-0699 or visit www.tehachapihumane.org.

Safe and Comfortable: Whatever method you choose to properly restrain your pet in your vehicle, be sure to make their comfort a priority. Just as it's important for your "seat" to be comfortable for your long road trip, your pet's seat should be comfortable too. Typically their favorite blanket or travel bed will do the trick. There are also some safe and very cozy pet car seats available that your pet may find quite comfy. Careful preparation is the key to ensuring that you and your pet have a happy and safe trip.

It features a directory of pet friendly hotels and accommodations, airline and car rental pet policies, dog friendly beaches, search by route, pet travel tips, pet travel supplies, along with other pet travel resources.

The Weekender — Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Noteworthy May is ‘Be Bear Aware’ month in California May is “Be Bear Aware” Month and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) reminds the public to act responsibly when in bear country. Spring is the time of year when California’s black bears emerge from their winter dens in search of food. Because bears are attracted to anything edible or smelly, their search often leads them into campsites and residential neighborhoods, where trash and food is readily available. There are an estimat-

ed 30,000 bears in California. Throughout spring and summer, CDFW receives many calls when bears break into homes, rummage through trash bins and raid campsites. These bears are often labeled “nuisance” bears, but in reality they are just doing what comes naturally to them, foraging for food. “Our bear problems are human-caused. It is people’s behavior that needs to change,” said Marc Kenyon, CDFW’s Bear Program Manager.

“By taking just a few precautions to secure food and trash, campers and residents can save themselves thousands of dollars in property damage, help protect their families from injury and save the lives of bears. Bears that become habituated to humans or conditioned to eating our food and trash often have to be killed.”

Tips for Bear-proofing your Home, Rental or Timeshare: Bears have keen noses and can smell an easy

meal from miles away. They can easily tear a front door off its hinges if they smell food left out on the kitchen counter. To protect your family and property from bear break-ins follow these simple tips: • Purchase and properly use a bear-proof garbage container. • Wait to put trash out until the morning of collection day. • Don’t leave trash, groceries, or animal feed in your car. • Keep garbage cans clean and deodorize

WORSHIP

them with bleach or ammonia. • Keep barbecue grills clean and stored in a garage or shed when not in use. • Only provide bird feeders during November through March and make them inaccessible to bears. • Don’t leave any scented products outside, even non-food items such as suntan lotion, insect repellent, soap or candles. • Keep doors and windows closed and locked. • Consider installing

motion-detector alarms, electric fencing or motion-activated sprinklers. • Harvest fruit off trees as soon as it is ripe, and promptly collect fruit that falls. • Securely block access to potential hibernation sites such as crawl spaces under decks and buildings. For more information including bear-proof containers and where to buy them, please visit: www.dfg.ca.gov/keepmewild/bear.html.

Bakersfield CHP issued 710 cell phone and texting citations The Bakersfield Area California Highway Patrol (CHP) conducted a month long enforcement and education campaign focusing on distracted driving. The month of April was designated as

National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Within the month of April, local CHP officers issued 673 citations for using a hand-held cell phone. Another 37 citations were handed out for texting

while driving. That’s a total of 710 citations! Unfortunately, there are still a lot of motorists that don’t get the message about talking and texting while driving and just how danger-

ous it really is. There are those people that have changed their habits about driving distracted and there are those that believe the hazards don’t apply to them. The CHP will continue to

combat distracted driving to make our roadways a safer place to drive. In addition to the enforcement efforts, the local CHP area conducted 20 educational programs at various

schools and business with our Adult Distracted Driving and Impact Teen Driver programs. We encourage everyone to minimize distractions and focus on the road ahead, “It’s Not Worth It.”
