When you’re fit with a Starkey, you can rest assured you’re getting today’s best hearing science and latest microelectronic technology inside a precision instrument engineered to fit better, sound better and perform longer.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Lots of possibilities begin to open up by midweek. Some seem more appealing than others. But wait for more facts to emerge later on before you consider which to choose.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Expect to hear good news about a loved one. Also, be prepared for some changes in several family relationships that could develop from this lucky turn of events.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bravo to the determined Bovine. While others might give up, you continue to search for answers. Expect your Taurean tenacity to begin paying off by week's end.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Some surprises are expected to accompany a number of changes that will continue through part of next week. At least one could involve a romantic situation.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might want to consider stepping back from the task at hand for a while. This could help you get a better perspective on what you've done and what still needs to be done.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You might be upset by some of your critics. But most of your associates continue to have faith in your ability to get the job done, and done well.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your keen Cancerian insight should help you determine whether a new offer is solid or just more fluff 'n' stuff. The clues are all there waiting for you to find them.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A workplace goal that suddenly seems out of reach is no problem for the surefooted Goat, who moves steadily forward despite any obstacles placed in his or her way.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) Being ignored is difficult for any proud Leo or Leona. But pushing yourself back into the spotlight might be unwise. Instead, let things work themselves out at their own pace.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Uncertainty about who is right and who isn't might keep you from making a clear-cut decision. Wait until you know more about what you're being asked to decide.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Trying to uncover a colleague's secret under the pretext of showing concern is ill-advised. Control your curiosity to avoid raising resentment in the workplace.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be careful to keep your emotions in check when dealing with a demanding personal situation. You need to set an example of strength for others to follow.

Sesame Street Live taking over Rabobank stage June 4, 5 Generations of children have watched Big Bird and his friends on the PBS hit show “Sesame Street.” On June 4 and 5, children and families can see the characters come alive on stage as the Rabobank Theater presents Sesame Street Live “Can’t Stop Singing.” When Elmo gets his furry fingers on Abby Cadabby’s magic wand, there’s something in the air - and Sesame Street becomes a nonstop, allsinging, all-dancing musical montage. Grover and Baby Bear sing their highs and lows, Cookie Monster sings fast and slow, Bert and Ernie converse in song and Murray makes mouth music for all to sing along. Learn why it

The Sesame Street Live production of “Can’t Stop Singing” will be performed in Bakersfield on June 4 at 7 p.m., and June 5 at 10:30 am and 7 p.m., at the Rabobank Theater, 1001 Truxtun Ave., 661-852-7300. feels good to sing a song, but why it feels good to stop, too. Before the show, Play

Zone will be open for audience members to sing and dance with Sesame Street friends,

sit in Big Bird's nest, twirl in Zoe's dance studio, sit on the steps of 123 Sesame Street and

much more. Play Zone will open one hour before showtime. Access is free with a ticket to the show. Rabobank Theater is offering an ultimate fan experience with Sunny Seats. The Sunny Seats package includes a VIP seat and a pre-show meet and greet photo opportunity with two Sesame Street Live friends. Sunny Seat orders will include a special admittance ticket for entry into the meet and greet. You will receive the special admittance ticket with the rest of your show tickets. All meet and greets start 90 minutes prior to the performance. Ticket holders will meet at the Sunny Seats sign and must bring

their own camera. Sesame Street Live “Can’t Stop Singing” offers a fun-filled learning experience packed with the razzle-dazzle of interactive live performance, including up-close and personal interactions on the audience floor. Like television’s “Sesame Street,” each Sesame Street Live production features timeless lessons for all ages. Adults will appreciate the high-tech stagecraft, cleverly written script, and music they’ll recognize and enjoy sharing with children, such as fun new parodies of “Shout” and “You Can’t Stop the Music.” The universal appeal of each Broadway-quality musical production continues long after preschool.

Every Saturday night in June, starting at 6 p.m. a farm-themed family movie will be shown. The schedule is as follows: June 1: The Princess Bride A classic fairy tale, with swordplay, giants, an evil prince, a beautiful princess, and yes, some kissing (as read by a kindly grandfather). June 8: Chicken Run Chicken Run is a comedy escape drama with a touch of passion set on a sinister Yorkshire chicken farm in 1950's England. June 15: Fantastic Mr. Fox An urbane fox cannot resist returning to his farm raiding ways and then must help his community survive the farmers' retaliation.

June 22: Babe Babe, a pig raised by sheepdogs, learns to herd sheep with a little help from Farmer Hoggett. June 29: Charlotte's Web Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table.

Admission includes the movie in the Pole Barn, hayride, jumping pillow, duck races, petting zoo, bonfire and four mazes. Movie snacks will be available.

Laurence Juber plays at Fiddlers Crossing June 9 BY DEBORAH HAND-CUTLER CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Two-time Grammywinning guitarist Laurence Juber will make his third appearance in Tehachapi on June 9, for a Sunday matinee concert at Fiddlers Crossing. Juber is a world-renowned guitar virtuoso, composer and arranger, who won his first Grammy as lead guitarist for Paul McCartney’s Wings. Since then, he has become particularly noted for his finger style interpretations of Beatles songs, including two CDs from the Beatle songbook. One of them, “LJ Plays The Beatles,� was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s Top Ten albums of all time. In all, Juber has 20 solo albums and counting to his credit, ranging from folk and jazz to pop and rock.

Juber is also in demand as a studio musician and composer. He is featured on numerous recordings by major artists, as well as on TV and movie soundtracks. His playing can be heard on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager� on the ABC Family channel, and films such as “Good Will Hunting� and the “Muppet Movie.� As a composer, Juber has contributed to video games, including Diablo III, as well as documentary films. His music is featured on Ken Burns’ “The Tenth Inning,� and NBC Datelines’ “Children of the Harvest.� With his wife, Hope Juber, he has

composed the scores to several musical comedies. Juber’s last performance in Tehachapi was a sold-out show in the Beekay Theatre a few years ago. This one will undoubtedly bring in a full house, as well. Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 East F Street at Robinson Street, in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased next door at Mountain Music, at The Apple Shed, or with a credit card by calling 661-823-9994. Tickets to the concert are $20, and as always, coffee and goodies are included. The concert begins at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My doctor gave me some very unsettling news. He says I have cataracts in both eyes. I haven't been able to sleep since he told me. My aunt was blind later in life. I don't know the cause, but I do know that life was very tough for her. I haven't contacted the ophthalmologist my doctor referred me to. I'm too scared. How are cataracts treated? How long is recuperation? -S.M. ANSWER: If a doctor examined the eyes of most people over 60, the doctor would tell them they have the beginning of a cataract. Do you know what a cataract is? Right behind the pupil is the eye's lens, a small, oval-shaped, perfectly clear structure. The lens focuses light on the retina in the back of the eye, so we get a clear picture of what we see. A cataract is a smudge in the lens. Proteins in the lens have stuck to

each other to produce a stain in the lens like a thumbprint on the lens of glasses. Your cataract must not be large. You have no complaints of it interfering with your vision. Most cataracts result from aging. Smoking, alcohol excess, constant exposure to sunlight and long-term use of high doses of cortisone drugs also contribute to cataract formation. The evolution of your cataract to one that blurs vision is unpredictable. The process is painless. Difficulty seeing at night and difficulty reading fine print are early symptoms of cataracts affecting vision. Treatment is close to miraculous. When the lens smudge greatly affects vision, the eye doctor removes the lens and replaces it with a

lens made of plastic or silicone. Cataract removal is done as an outpatient. You can be up and about by the evening of surgery or the following day. You'll be astounded at the minimum inconvenience of the procedure and with the vision that results from it. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What's the best time to take a multivitamin? I take one in the morning. That way I don't forget to take it. -- L.M. ANSWER: I believe this is the most frequently asked question I get. Vitamins A, D, E and K are fat-soluble vitamins. They're better absorbed if they're taken after a meal that has some fat or oils in it. Vitamins B and C are water-soluble and can be taken at any time. I'm not convinced that the timing of vitamintaking is all that important. Take your multivitamin when it's most convenient.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I lift weights seven days a week. I see that I am making progress. My arms are much bigger than they were. I've been told I'm overdoing it by lifting every day. Am I? -R.S. ANSWER: It's not a good idea to perform the same weightlifting exercises on consecutive days. Muscles need a full 48 hours to recover, rebuild and grow after an intense exercise session. A day of lifting and then a day of rest is a good schedule. You can lift weights daily if you want to. Just don't work the same muscles on consecutive days. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Instead of a sports fan, become a sports participant (NewsUSA) - It's home run time. From spring training through the World Series in October, baseball fans are glued to their flat screens. Vascular surgeon David H. Stone, M.D., encourages arm chair enthusiasts to get into the game. "Find your favorite summertime sports pastime, and give your vascular system a great workout." As a member of the Society for Vascular Surgery, Dr. Stone encourages physical activity that can pump up blood while lowering blood pressure. "More than diet, exercise helps keep your weight down and provides positive health benefits," said Dr. Stone. After a one-hour workout, the Mayo Clinic states that a 200-pound person will have burned

Dye Natatorium closed for repairs Tehachapi swimmers received some bad news at last week’s meeting of the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks board of directors. Several members from the audience groaned with disapproval, as District Manager Matt Young announced that the Dye Natatorium, which houses Tehachapi's only public swimming pool, would remained closed for the entire summer after being shut down earlier this month. “My daily swim is very important,” said Mary Moreno who has been lap swimming six days a week at the pool everyday for a year. “I cannot afford to swim in Bakersfield and I don’t live in Bear Valley or Stallion Springs, so swimming is just going to be out of the question.” Closed since May 8, after mold was discovered in two areas, the 55-year-old facility will undergo a major makeover, which began this past weekend with the installation of a new, more modern roof. After the completion of the roof, which is expected to be finished in one to three weeks, phase II will begin, first removing the mold and then demolish-

ing, reconstructing and improving most of the facility's interior, including ceilings, some electrical and restroom amenities. The second stage of the project is expected to take at least a month. Young said the decision to close the pool during the busiest time of the year was a difficult one. And although the mold condition does not necessarily pose a significant health risk, the danger of falling plaster from the ceiling helped Young make the decision to shut off the pool to public access until repairs can be made. "I realize this is a major impact to programs and the community," he said. "But I cannot keep it (the pool) open at the expense of public health and safety." While the closure of the pool is a big inconvenience to swimmers, the financial consequence is a wash for the district, as the revenue from the pool’s summer programs is offset by the cost of operating the facility. “What we’re more concerned with is how the closure impacts the district’s ability to provide the highest level of service to our community,” Young said.

Ask the Wildlife Officer

What are rules about stowing fishing gear? Q&A from the Calif. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife BY CARRIE WILSON CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Question: I would like a definition of “stowed” in regard to fishing gear while transiting a state marine reserve. The reason I ask is that a sport fisherman reported he was stopped by a patrol boat at the Channel Islands and told he could have been cited for having his rods in the rod holders. He was told he should have had them in his small cuddy. It does not seem reasonable to require my buddies and I “stow” all our rods and reels in my cabin every time we need to make a move across a state marine reserve. Or when we are at an island, we should not be required to drive

six miles out, then whatever distance across, and then back in another six miles — at $4 or more a gallon. All of this would be quite a hardship for those of us fishing from private sport boats just to stow our fishing gear when maneuvering around state marine reserves. (Fred H., Anaheim) Answer: There is no requirement for equipment to be stowed under the Marine Life Protection Act laws covered in section 632 of the California Code of Regulations Title 14. CCR Title 14, section 632(8) covers the law you are referring to as follows: Transit or Drifting. Vessels shall be allowed to transit through marine protected areas and marine managed areas with catch onboard. Fishing gear shall not be deployed in


There are rules for moving your boat through special marine protection areas, but you don’t have to put your fishing gear completely away. the water while transiting through a state marine reserve. Fishing gear, except legal fishing gear used to take species identified as allowed for take in subsection 632(b), shall not be deployed in the water while transiting through a state marine recreational management area, state marine park or state marine conser-

vation area.

Don’t eat those mussels! Question: Yesterday we collected a few mussels at low tide at Chicken Ranch Beach with the kids (past the Inverness Yacht Club). They are of a decent size, about 3 to 4 inches, and all black. Are they safe to eat? (Ben)

Answer: Don’t eat those mussels! There is currently an advisory out against consuming sport-taken shellfish in Marin County. The California Department of Public Health shellfish biotoxin information line is (510) 412-4643 or tollfree at (800) 553-4133 – you can check with them at any time to see whether there are advisories in effect for your area.

How to catch an octopus? Question: My Italian grandmother asked my brother and me to bring home some fresh octopus so that she can make her favorite pasta dish. The only problem is we don’t know how to catch them. Can you help us out? (Joe K.) Answer: You will have to be creative on this one. Fortunately, there

are no size limits on octopus and the bag limit for each of you is 35 (CCR Title 14, section 29.05(a)). California sport fishing regulations allow you to catch them only by hook and line or with the hands (CCR Title 14, section 29.10(a)). You cannot catch them with traps or spears. The most common way to successfully catch them in California is by hand while diving with snorkel or scuba equipment. It’s also unlawful to use any chemicals, such as bleach, to attempt to disturb octopi from their hiding locations.

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

Home & Garden

(Family Features) Nothing brings people together quite like a neighborhood picnic or family celebration. So, gather up neighbors, friends and family for a celebration of great food and fun. Keep the food simple. Ask everyone to bring a favorite side dish so you only need to grill up the hamburgers and hot dogs. Of course, you'll also want to whip up a few special treats. What could be better than a popcorn bar? Popcorn is both good and good for you. It's a whole grain food that is not only low in calories but also makes a great addition to many recipes. Because, sometimes, a sweet indulgence is just what you need. Set out large bowls of popcorn along with shakers of garlic salt, cumin, lemon pepper, dry taco seasoning mix and Parmesan cheese for extra flavor. Add dried fruit, nuts, pretzel sticks, grated cheese and chocolate chips for a make-your-own trail mix option. Complete the popcorn bar with a few sweet surprises like delicious desserts made with freshly popped corn. For more creative recipes, visit

Double Chocolate Popcorn Balls Yield: 18 balls • 1/2 cup sugar • 1/2 cup corn syrup • 1/4 cup butter or margarine • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder • 8 cups freshly popped popcorn • 1 cup milk chocolate candies Combine sugar, corn syrup, butter and cocoa in medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Add popcorn, stirring until evenly coated. Remove from heat. Stir in milk chocolate candies. Cool slightly. Shape into 2-inch balls.

Coconut Monkey Mix Yield: 7 cups • 1 cup flaked coconut (unsweetened or sweetened) • 6 cups popped popcorn • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted • 1 teaspoon sugar • 1/8 teaspoon salt • Dash of nutmeg • 1 cup dried banana chips Preheat oven to 325°F. Spread coconut in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan, breaking up any clumps as needed. Bake 10 minutes or until edges of coconut begin to brown.

Spread popcorn over coconut and sprinkle with melted butter; toss. Sprinkle popcorn mixture with sugar, salt and nutmeg; toss. Bake 5 minutes longer and toss with banana chips. Serve immediately or cool and store in an airtight container.

Grab and Go Pizza Popcorn Yield: 6 quarts • 6 quarts popped popcorn • Olive oil cooking spray • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese • 2 teaspoons garlic salt • 2 teaspoons paprika • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning Place popcorn in a large, sealable plastic container (or in a 2.5-gallon plastic sealable bag). Spray popcorn lightly with cooking spray. Sprinkle cheese, garlic salt, paprika and Italian seasoning over popcorn and shake to distribute evenly. To serve, scoop popcorn into reusable plastic cups.

Perfect Picnic Popcorn Squares Yield: 12 squares • 1 cup light corn syrup • 1/2 cup sugar • 1/2 cup brown sugar • 1 cup reduced fat peanut butter • 8 cups air-popped popcorn • 3/4 cup raisins • Cooking spray Combine corn syrup, sugar, brown sugar and peanut butter in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly; boil 2 to 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat.

Gardening Time

Outdoor home solutions

Avoiding hidden flight and hotel fees

(Family Features) In the warmer months, we find ourselves outside more often, enjoying nature while playing with the kids and maintaining our lawns. But this additional time spent outside means more home and garden tools and more opportunity for a mess. Here are some simple tips to keep your outdoor spaces cleaner and more organized: Storage Bench - Use a storage bench to keep your gardening gloves, tools and children's outdoor toys. Available in a wide variety of sizes and styles, you can find the bench that fits your dÈcor. Plus, they offer an extra seating area when you have company. Bundle Cords - No one likes the unsightly appearance or hazard of cords. Before your gatherings, bundle together stereo and electronic chords that are exposed, as well as any cords that run across the lawn. Helpful products, such as Velcro One-Wrap ties, keep your items bound tight and out of sight. Paver Pots - Use old pavers to create plant con-

tainers. Simply stack the pavers together making a square shape. The heavy weight of the pavers keeps the dirt and plant contained together. Deck Space - Use the space under your deck for additional, out-of-sight storage. Tuck plastic lidded storage containers underneath for easy access to children's sporting goods and toys. Mesh Bags - Pool toys, rafts and inner tubes need a space to dry off. Use mesh bags so these summer toys properly are properly dried, preventing mildew or molding. Proper Plant Care - Stock up on essentials for a healthy garden, including the tools to make plant seedlings thrive, such as Velcro Peel Away seed pots. These pots make it easy to remove the pots without disturbing the roots, making transitions from pot to flower bed flawless. Repurpose Furniture Turn old furniture pieces, such as old filing cabinets, into instant garage storage solutions. Take out the

drawers of the cabinet and turn it on its side. Each empty drawer area provides a spot for large items like brooms, shovels and rakes. Fence Storage - Turn old coffee or paint cans into storage bins for smaller gardening tools like hand shovels and pruning shears. For easy access while in the garden, cut holes and use rope to hang around a closeby fence post. Tires - Stack old tires on top of each other for an outdoor toy container that kids can easily access. Paint the outside to match the color of your house or whatever color you fancy. End of Season Storage Keep your garage area tidy by organizing similar tools together. Use One-Wrap ties to keep gardening tools grouped together, or to keep hoses tightly coiled and out of the way. This product also comes in a variety of colors and sizes so that you can keep everything neat and organized. For more helpful home dÈcor, DIY and organization solutions, visit


The last few years have been tough economically for many people. Unemployment fears combined with plunging home, stock and retirement account values caused many to forgo big vacations – even though stressful times are when we most need to recharge our batteries. But with the economy turning around, many families are cautiously dipping their toes in the travel pool once again. Hotel occupancy rates have risen in many areas and airports are as crowded as ever. Airlines and hotels are notorious for tacking extra charges onto their bills. Here are a few to watch out for: A few airlines allow one free checked bag (Southwest still allows two), but most

charge up to $25 for the first checked bag each way, and even more for additional pieces. Plus, most now tack on hefty fees for overweight and over-sized checked and carry-on luggage, so measure and weigh your luggage carefully. Expect to pay extra for things like changing flights, extra leg room, priority boarding, unaccompanied minors, pets, Wi-Fi access and food. Some airlines even charge extra to speak to a live person or to buy your ticket at the airport counter or by phone. Airfarewatchdog.c om, and Kayak offer great

fee comparison charts for various airlines; but always double-check the airline's own posted rules before booking your flight. Some hotels charge extra if you check in before a certain time. Ask whether they'll store your luggage for free until check-in so you can begin sightseeing unencumbered. Many hotels charge a hefty penalty if you don't cancel a reservation 24 to 72 hours beforehand and some also charge an earlydeparture fee – sometimes the equivalent of one night's lodging.

Dogs can be trained to avoid snakes : Each year approximately 150,000 dogs die from venomous snake bites in the United States. Although dogs do not naturally recognize and avoid snakes, they can be trained to do so. A leader in snake aversion training, Natural Solutions will provide rattlesnake aversion training on Saturday, June 8, at Thunder Paws Dog Training in Tehachapi. The training takes about fifteen minutes per dog. Natural Solutions’ handlers take the dog through sight, scent and sound recognition stations with live rattlesnakes to familiarize the dog with the snakes. The final station is designed to test what the dog has learned during the session. The cost is $75.00 for the first dog. For multi-dog households, the fee is reduced to $65.00 for each additional dog. To schedule your appointment for the training, contact Rosemary Evans at either 661-8672295 or The training will take place at 20609 Santa Lucia, Unit C. Refreshments for dogs and their owners will be available.

hotels offering parking promotions. Sometimes using public transportation and taxis is cheaper overall than paying for parking. Some hotels and resorts automatically add housekeeping or spa gratuities to your bill, so ask first before leaving your own tip – unless of course the service was

terrific. Most hotels charge exorbitant amounts for local and long-distance calls made from room phones, so use your cellphone. Resorts often charge extra for services they offer – such as gym access or daily newspaper delivery – even if you don't use them. Find out the policy ahead of time and scrutinize your bill for unused services.

Ask to see your bill the night before you check out, so you can review it carefully for overcharges. If you're traveling abroad, be aware that using your cellphone can be mighty expensive. Research your carrier's international calling plan and ask whether your phone is compatible with foreign networks. You may need to rent an international cellphone,

or buy or rent an unlocked phone and international SIM card. If your budget's in good shape and you're getting wanderlust, maybe it's time to venture out into the world again. Just be cautious about how hidden expenses can add up. JASON ALDERMAN directs Visa's financial education programs. To Follow Jason Alderman on Twitter:

Pet & Rescue News


Super Skippy My name is Skippy, I’m a 2 ½ year young, 11 pound male Border Terrier mix Save Tehachapi’s Orphaned Pets (STOP) rescued from high-kill shelter. I’m a kind, gentle old soul, not a barker, play well with others, like car rides, leash-trained and I am housetrained (via doggie door). If you want to be the special one to welcome super Skippy in to your heart and home, please call Marsha at 661823-7868. Why not adopt this mellow fellow, your new best friend, the one who will never disappoint you, ever?


L’oreal girl Loreal is a six month old spayed female gray tabby kitty who was abandoned by a callous owner when they moved and decided that Loreal and her sisters could fend for themselves. She has beautiful white "eyeliner" around her eyes, and is the sweetest of all possible sweet cats in the world. She lives to be with her person, loves to talk in her unusual half-meow voice, and is probably the

most affectionate kitty we have ever had in our foster. She has never been outside and is adoptable as an indoor kitty only. She faithfully uses the kitty box and scratch tower, but she does like to get up on the kitchen counter, a habit quickly remedied by the use of a water squirt bottle. She is ready to be a forever kitty for someone special! Call Have a Heart Humane Society at 661750-2261 for more info.

Noteworthy Wildlife officials remind residents to be rattlesnake safe As warm weather returns, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is reminding the public to be rattlesnake safe. All of California is snake country. Much like bats, rattlesnakes are often misunderstood. They play an important role in the ecosystem by keeping rodent populations under control. California has six venomous snakes, all of which are various species of rattlesnake. They are heavy-bodied, blunttailed with triangularshaped heads. A rattle

may not always be present, as they are often lost through breakage and not developed on the young. Additional species information can be found here: ews/issues/snake.html. Rattlesnakes are generally not aggressive and usually strike when threatened or provoked. Given room, they will retreat and want to be left alone. They are not confined to rural areas and have been found in urban environments, lakeside parks and golf courses. The best protection against unwelcome rat-

tlesnakes in the yard is to have a “rattlesnakeproof” fence. The fence should either be solid or with mesh no larger than one-quarter inch. It should be at least 3 feet high with the bottom buried a few inches in the ground. Keep the fence clear of vegetation and debris. Encourage and protect kingsnakes, which prey on rattlesnakes, and other natural competitors like gopher snakes and racers. On rare occasions, rattlesnakes can cause serious injury to humans. Most bites occur between

the months of April and October when humans are most active outdoors. CDFW recommends the following outdoor safety precautions: • Wear hiking boots and loose-fitting long pants. • Never go barefoot or wear sandals when walking through wild areas. • When hiking, stick to well-used trails. • Avoid tall grass, weeds and heavy underbrush where snakes may hide during the day. • Do not step or put your hands where you cannot see, and avoid wandering around in the dark.


• Step ON logs and rocks, never over them, and be especially careful when climbing rocks or gathering firewood. • Remember, rattlesnakes can swim so never grab “sticks” or “branches” while swimming in lakes and rivers. • Teach children to respect snakes and to leave them alone. What to do in the event of a snake bite: • Stay calm and wash the bite area gently with soap and water. • Remove watches, rings, etc, which may constrict swelling.

• Immobilize the affected area and go to the nearest medical facility. What you should NOT do after a rattlesnake bite: • DON’T apply a tourniquet. • DON’T pack the bite area in ice. • DON’T cut the wound with a knife or razor. • DON’T use your mouth to suck out the venom. • DON’T let the victim drink alcohol.

ness,” according to a news release from the company. Established in 1992, the Visa Service Quality Awards recognize exceptional card operations

performance by issuers, acquirers, and processors. These awards reinforce Visa’s commitment to best-in-class operations, acknowledging consistent, superior
