ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Count to 10 if you must, but don't lose your temper, despite that person's (you know who!) efforts to goad you into reacting. Your restraint will pay off in a big way.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your practical side dominates the week as you reassess your finances to make some sensible adjustments in what you plan to spend and what you expect to save.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This week finds you in a sociable mood, ready and eager to enjoy the company of family and friends. It's also a good time to seek out and renew old friendships.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An unexpected meeting with a former colleague opens some interesting possibilities. But you need to press for full disclosure before making a decision.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Patience is called for as you await a decision about that project you're eager to launch. Meanwhile, try to set aside more time to share with that special person in your life.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A recent flurry of activity eases by midweek, giving you time to readjust your disrupted schedule and make new plans for a weekend getaway.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid becoming involved in a workplace dispute early in the week by insisting both sides submit their stands to a neutral arbitrator. Things begin to cool off by Thursday.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You're usually the one who gives advice. But now it's time to open yourself up to counsel from friends who have your best interests at heart.

LEO (July 23 to August 22) It promises to be a busy but productive week for the Big Cat. The pace slows by Friday, allowing you to catch up on matters you put aside but that now need your attention.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might find resistance to your call for a full inquiry into a workplace problem. But by week's end even the most rigid naysayers begin to come around.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A suddenly disruptive family situation is best handled with a cool, calm and collected response. Wait until things settle to let off all that pent-up emotional steam.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A recurring problem surfaces once again. Maybe it's time you used your creative talents to help you find a new approach to resolving it once and for all.

John Zipperer and Friends will grace the stage at Fiddlers Crossing, 206 E. “F” St., on Saturday, June 29 at 7 p.m., playing cover songs with a distincly Americana feel. Americana music is defined by as “contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw.” The musician’s “Friends” include bass player Jime Van Booven, harmony singer Tara Sitser and guitarist Barrett Tagliarino. The band is a member of the Americana Music Association, which boasts other members like the Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons and the Punch Brothers. Zipperer writes on his Facebook page that he was born in Florida and grew up in Jacksonville on the banks of the St. Johns River. A veteran of many bands on the east coast, Zipperer moved to Los Angeles to attend the Musicians Institute in Hollywood. After graduating from the Guitar and Vocal programs, John was hired to teach

He has played with such greats as Tim Bogert, Dave Sutton, Doan Perry and Jimmy Scott. "John Zipperer seems to me to be a cross between Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, while being a true original at the same time," Gary Austin, founder of The Groundlings Theater in Hollywood, wrote on Zipperer’s website, Although John Zipperer and Friends are based in Southern

California, the group travels to various venues in the California area. Fiddlers Crossing is the space at Mountain Music used as a gathering place locals can count on for ecclectic musical sharing and entertainment. Entrance to the venue for the Zipperer show costs $15, but once inside, coffee, tea, snacks and other beverages are free. For tickets, visit Mountain Music or call at 823-9994; The Apple Shed, 333 E.

Veterans Memorial to be unveiled, eternally honored BY TEHACHAPI NEWS

As one navigates the multitude of uses attached to parks, it is common to think of peaceful activities such as a family picnic, a friendly game of flag football or a neighbor tossing a Frisbee disc to their dog. Indeed, parks are platforms for peaceful activities; however, in many instances, parks are also foundations for peace and honor. Such is the case with Arlington National Cemetery, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., and Tehachapi’s own Veterans Memorial at Central Park. Designed, constructed and dedicated by local veterans and members of the community on Memorial Day, 1980, the Veterans Memorial stands as a testament to the city’s dedication and deepest appreciation to local men and women in uniform who died in time of war. Pat Gracey and her now deceased husband, Doyle, were among the original dedicators in 1980. Doyle was a driving force behind the institution of the memorial.

“My husband gave a speech that day,” she said. “He said that those who died did so serving their country willingly. They only asked that they not be forgotten. My husband was very adamant about that.” Doyle served in the Marines for 30 years and was on active duty during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Constructed of ancient volcanic stone, concrete and brass, the memorial is structurally sound. However, its ability to remain a symbol of peace and community pride will always depend on personal knowledge and level of appreciation to those enshrined upon it. Pat said that in 2000, the plaque on the monument was damaged to the extent that it needed to be replaced. Thirteen years later, thanks to many donations from community members and organizations, the repair is becoming reality. The plaque was rededicated on Memorial Day this year, but on the Fourth of July it will be officially unveiled. Matt Young, district manager of

the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks District, said the monument is an important representation of the value of armed servicemembers to the community. “It is of the utmost importance [to TVRPD] to maintain the monument and keep it in excellent condition as it should be,” Young said. As city representatives prepare for the July 4 unveiling of the refurbished Veterans Memorial, preparations must also be made for a new era of honoring local veterans, present and not present, by ensuring peace and honor. Young said he hopes that the next time community members see a playful child climbing on the monument, a rambunctious teenager hanging on the flag pole or a quiet park patron sitting at the base of the monument, to take a moment to inquire as to their knowledge of the monument’s purpose. He asked that the community of Tehachapi remember the homage it pays to the greatest heroes, all who paid the ultimate price to ensure the land (and park) in which they seek peace is forever protected and honored.

Tehachapi Museum celebrating 40th birthday This year on the Fourth of July, the Tehachapi Museum turns 40 years old. To celebrate, there will be birthday cake and lemonade on the porch of the Errea House. Cake will be cut and served at 1 p.m. In addition, the annual Ice Cream Social, with Baskins Robbins ice cream for sale, starts at 11 a.m. and continues to 4 p.m. Adding to the festivities will be music on the front porch by Ron Kelbaugh, who is returning to Tehachapi for a visit and to play for the birthday party. Chairs and tables will be set up so that you can sit and enjoy. A special display of old photos show-

ing Tehachapi’s past will be set up in the museum. See all that has been accomplished during the past 40 years in the scrapbooks that will be on display for you to look through. Stop by and see the Tehachapi Museum and the Errea House Museum at 310 S. Green St. The museums and displays have been improved over the past 40 years by many dedicated volunteers, some of whom are no longer with us but to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude for their hard work. Others are now retired and we hope you will all come by to see us on July 4 or whenever possible.

A cool summer drive along OC’s last country back road

Wood Family Funeral Service, Inc.

A Family Tradition • Simplify your life • Gain peace of mind • Plan Ahead with Wood Family • Affordable monthly payments


Nothing rivals a relaxing cool summer ride along an unspoiled strip of California highway. And a weekend drive along winding Santiago Canyon Road, which meanders its way through Silverado Canyon in southeast Orange County, provides the perfect spot for man and machine to enjoy a day out. The area’s last back country road, Santiago Canyon Road, also known as County Highway 18, extends for about 12 miles between the City of Lake Forest and the City of Orange. To make the most of the drive, travelers will want to start their excursion at the north end, just where the city disappears at the mouth of the Santa Margarita Mountains at the base of the Cleveland National Forest. The mountains here are sharp and rugged and for the most part untouched. Parts are preserved in open space areas, with hiking and horse trails heading into the hills like the ones found at Irvine Regional Park. Nestled amid a grove of heritage Oak and Sycamore trees, the rolling foothills surrounding the park are filled with a variety of wildlife, including those at the Orange County Zoo located inside the park. Trees and shaded turf areas also provide a perfect setting for picnicking, barbecuing and numerous outdoor activities that includes a railroad. Santiago Creek bisects the park, which feeds Irvine Lake, a privately run facility that offers camping and picnic areas, a few miles south of the park. The 750-acre lake features steep rocky cliffs and shallow coves that provide excellent fishing without a license. A little further to the south on the east side of Highway 18, are the Modjeska Canyon Nature Pre-

Ecosystems represented include riparian, oak woodland, coastal sage scrub and chaparral, making them both perfect places to learn about native southern California plant and animal life. Also, tucked away on the banks of Santiago Creek nearby, lies the century-old home of worldrenowned actress Madame Helena Modjeska. The National Historic Landmark is aptly named Arden for its resemblance to the Forest of Arden in the Shakespearean play, “As You Like It.” Docent led tours of the historic house and gardens are currently offered four times a month, by advance reservation only. Finally, there is one last stop along Highway 18 that is legendary. Best described, but much more than a “biker bar”, Cook’s Corner at the intersection of Santiago Canyon, El Toro and Live Oak Canyon roads, has been welcoming travelers on two or four wheels since 1926. Always packed with a line of bikes parked out front, the wooden structure similar to a World War II-era restaurant and bar is one of Orange County’s most popular

water holes and eateries. While Irvine Regional Park, Irvine Lake and many of the other attractions and locations are open year-round, it still advised to contact Caltrans before heading out to check road conditions. Sometimes during brief

rains, the hillside can cause slides, requiring temporary road closures. From Tehachapi, take 58 east to 14 south to Interstate 5 to SR-55 south in Orange County. Exit at East Chapman Avenue. Head east. Continue onto Santiago

Health & Fitness Ask the Doctor

What is best way to treat animal bites? BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D.

see if it exhibits signs of rabies. The threat of rabies is small, but maximal precautions have to be taken because rabies is such a deadly illness. Unprovoked bites from an animal raise the suspicion of rabies. Less-serious bites, the ones that can be treated at home, are copiously irrigated with sterile saltwater. Not many homes have sterile saltwater, so the bite should be washed with soap and water and then irrigated with tap water. After the irrigation, apply a disinfectant like Betadine (povidone iodine). Inspect the wound daily for any


DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you tell me the best way to treat pet bites? I have three young children, and we live in a neighborhood where every family except us has at least one pet. Most are dogs. I don't want to overreact to a tiny scratch, but I need to know what to do with a more serious bite. — A.M. ANSWER: I'm limiting my remarks to cat and dog bites. Wild-animal bites require more involved treatment and are best taken care of in a hospital setting. A domesticated animal that has bitten a child or adult should be observed for 10 days to

signs of infection — skin redness or pus. If you see those signs, take the child to a doctor. If the child's immunizations are up to date, all is well. If they are not, he or she needs a tetanus booster. If the child has had no tetanus immunizations, the series should begin right away. Wounds that are large, that bleed, that are quite deep or are in a place, like the face, where they might be deforming should be taken care of by a professional. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I'm in my 60s and never had a major illness. I take no medicines. In the past three months, I have been wakened from sleep with a dull pain in

the center of my chest. My husband told me to take Mylanta. I did, and got instant relief. What do you think of this pain? — V.P. ANSWER: Pain that wakens a person from sleep must be taken seriously and ought to be reported to the family doctor. However, the response you got from taking Mylanta (an antacid) makes me think of GERD — gastroesophageal reflux disease, more commonly known as heartburn. Stomach acid and digestive juices spurt into the esophagus, a structure not equipped to deal with them like the stomach can. If this nighttime pain of yours keeps com-

ing back, put 6-inch blocks under the bedposts at the head of your bed to keep stomach juices in the stomach when you lie down. My first statement about nighttime pain has to be observed. You need to see the family doctor to be certain this is heartburn and not one of the many other serious possibilities. The booklet on coronary artery disease, another cause of chest pain, details its signs and symptoms. To obtain a

copy, write: Dr. Donohue — No. 101W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S. with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DR. DONOHUE regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Garden Time

New bait available for snails and slugs is slower acting, safer BY CHERYL WILEN CONTRIBUTING WRITER

For the last 30 years, the primary mollusk (snail and slug) baits used in the landscaping industry have been those containing metaldehyde as the active ingredient. About 10 years ago, iron phosphate came on the market and is now also widely used, particularly in areas where people and pets may encounter the bait. Recently a new active ingredient, ferric sodium EDTA, has become available for both home use and professional pest management. You can find this active ingredient in new formulations of Corry’s Slug & Snail Killer as well as Dr. T’s Slug & Snail Killer, Slugexx, Iron Fist Slug & Snail Bait, Amdro Snail Block Slug & Snail Killer, and Ferroxx. Ferroxx is marketed to the professional, while all of the others are available to both home and professional users. Depending on the brand, these products contain 2 to 6% active ingredient (Table 1).

Although all these active ingredients are effective against snails and slugs, there are important differences. Metaldehyde works very quickly, and you will see foaming and dead snails by the morning if applied at night. However, metaldehyde can poison and even kill dogs and other mammals that might feed

on it. Iron phosphate is much safer but also much slower acting. Snails may stop feeding on plants after consuming iron phosphate baits but can take up to seven days to die. On the plus side, iron phosphate may be more effective than metaldehyde during periods of high humidity or if there are

rainy conditions. The newest active ingredient, ferric sodium EDTA, works in a similar manner to iron phosphate but is somewhat faster— three days instead of seven. EDTA is used to make the iron (ferric) more available and therefore kill the mollusks faster. Also note that recom-

Snails can be destructive in the garden; a new type of snail baiting is slower acting than older types but also safer according to the University of California.


* Corry’s is changing over its products to ferric sodium EDTA, but you may find packages with the same or similar name containing metaldehyde until stock is depleted.

mended application rates for ferric sodium EDTA may be considerably lower than iron phosphate (Table 2). Formulated iron phosphate and ferric sodium EDTA molluscicides look very similar, so it is important to check the label to be certain the product is applied correctly. Still, be aware that these new products, as well as the others, ought to be used in a way so that pets and children won’t be

tempted to eat the pellets. To be most effective, all of the snail bait products should be broadcast or spread, not piled, near areas where the mollusks are causing damage. Home and maintenance gardeners are reminded to remove plant debris and other snail and slug hiding places and to avoid overwatering, which increases mollusk activity. CHERYL WILEN is with the University of California's Integrated Pest Management Program.

Practical Money Matters


What to do when a loved one dies



Whether it's expected or accidental, the death of a loved one can shake you to the core. The last thing you want is to have to interrupt grieving to deal with mundane tasks, but unfortunately there are many actions that must be done on behalf of the deceased. Some must be taken immediately, while with others you can take your time and reflect on the best path to follow. Here's a checklist: If the death occurs under hospital or hospice watch, they will notify the proper authorities and help you make arrangements with the coroner's office for transport of the remains. If it happens at home, call local police or 911 for assistance. If he or she was an organ donor, you'll need to act quickly. Reach out for help in making arrangements and locating key documents. Split up such tasks as contacting others who will want to know, taking care of pets, collecting

(Family Features) Summer is for relaxing for pets too. Many pet parents indulge their animal companions with vacations, special meals, hotel stays and trips to the spa. In fact, an estimated $53 billion were spent on pets last year. Yet many families with pets may not realize the longer, hotter days of summer require pampering around their health and safety. "During hot summer months, it's important for pet parents to pay extra attention to their dogs' coats," said Dr. Simon Starkey, veterinary expert for PetSmart. "Pets need to be protected from sun and excessive heat." Here are a few simple tips to ensure your pet stays healthy and cool: Stay Hydrated: In the summer, pet parents need to help keep pets hydrated and make water accessible, even outdoors. Some pets simply don't drink enough water, so adding wet food to their regular dry food diet is a great option. Wet food contains more moisture and can help pets stay hydrated when it's hot outside. However, wet

food is not a substitute for drinking water, so refresh water bowls several times throughout the day. Supplement Diets: Summer often means taking dogs for a run on the beach and longer daylight hours for playing. To stay active, pet vitamins and supplements are great additions to support overall health with nutrients beyond those found in food. There are also supplements specifically formulated to support healthy skin and coat, such as the GNC Pets Ultra Mega Skin & Coat Essentials for dogs. It contains omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, which work to build a glossier and silkier coat. Relax in Style: Whether your pet accompanies you on picnics or long road trips, your companion needs a comfortable place to relax. The Tommy Bahama Pets Floral Cuddler Bed, available exclusively at PetSmart, is a cozy bed with plenty of room for your dog to stretch out. Five percent of the purchase price for each limited-edition item will be donated to help save homeless pets

through PetSmart Charities. Travel Smart: A collapsible travel bowl from Top Paw is a must-have travel accessory for summer weekends. Bring it on vacation or to the park to easily serve up food or water. The sealable bowl attaches to a dog's leash and can be expanded into a twocup bowl in seconds. Get Grooming: Some pets get a short haircut every summer but others should not be shaved down. Removing dead fur from the undercoat keeps dogs cooler, promotes new hair growth and helps ensures healthy skin. Ask your veterinarian or an experienced groomer for tips on which grooming supplies are best for your breed and which types of breeds do well with a short summer haircut. Then make sure to keep him washed, combed and ready to enjoy summer fun. To learn more about pet essentials for summer, visit a store near you or Source: PetSmart

An important checklist for things to do when close one passes Continued from Page 15

through their files, also look for: a trust; insurance policies; bank, credit card, mortgage and loan accounts; safe deposit box key; contact information for lawyer, doctor, accountant or other professional advisors; and passwords to computer and other accounts. Within the first few days, start notifying organizations with which the deceased had busi-

ness or financial arrangements. In most cases you'll be required to submit a certified copy of the death certificate, so be sure to order ample copies. You'll need to contact: • Current or former employers for information about possible final wages, accrued vacation, retirement, life insurance or other death benefits. • Social Security Administration. If they

were receiving Social Security benefits, you'll need to stop payment right away. Funeral homes often do this, but be sure to ask. • Once you've notified Social Security, they will contact Medicare to cancel benefits. However, if they were enrolled in a Medicare Prescription or Advantage Plan or had a Medigap policy, contact each to cancel coverage. • Veteran's Administra-

tion. Veterans, their immediate family members and certain others may be entitled to burial at a national cemetery. • Forward their mail to a secure address so you don't miss important correspondence. • Cancel their driver's license to avoid identity fraud. • Banks, credit unions, credit card issuers and other lenders to close accounts – or if you are a

surviving spouse, to convert accounts to your name only. • If they had a safe deposit box and you don't have the key, ask what documentation you need to gain access. • Insurance companies, to cancel auto and homeowner's policies; however, consider keeping them activated until assets are sold, in case of theft or damage. • Close email accounts.

• Cancel magazine subscriptions and utilities. Finally, the executor will have to deal with such issues as locating beneficiaries, distributing inherited property, filing final tax returns, and settling outstanding debts. You'd be wise to work with an attorney who specializes in probate issues. JASON ALDERMAN directs Visa's financial education programs.

Business and Services Directory “Laws regulating the licensing of contractors are important protections for you, the customer. These laws require that licensed contractors demonstrate a high degree of competence and observe high standards of financial and professional responsibility. Before you consider hiring a contractor, ask for the license number . When you deal with unlicensed contractors you give away many protections you may need.”
