Although a violin and a fiddle are technically the same instrument, many people jest at the pop culture difference. “What’s the difference between a violin and a fiddle?” “A violin has strings and a fiddle has straaangs!” So the joke goes. Musicians who play the fiddle generally choose tunes in genres like bluegrass, folk and dance, while violinists generally stick to classical music. At the “Fiddlin’ Down the Tracks” 37th annual Old Time Fiddle Contest, fiddle-suited music is applauded and promoted. The contest is sponsored by District 3 of the California State Old Time Fiddlers Association and will be Friday and Saturday, Sept. 20 and 21 at West Park Auditorium, 410 W. “D” St. “It’s part of Americana,” said District 3 state director Gayel Pitchford. “Old time fiddling is definitely an American pursuit. Yes, a lot of the tunes came out of Ireland and Scotland, originally, but they’ve been Americanized here...Fiddle music, to me, is feel-good music.” Teal Johnson, chair of this year’s fiddle contest, described the feel. “It’s foot-tapping music,” Johnson said. “It’s dancing music...I find myself bobbing to it.” A national fiddlers contest also exists, and its website, fiddlecontest.org, gives a history of fiddle contests: “Fiddle contests first appeared in the U.S. in November of 1736. The first recorded fiddle contest was held as part of a St. Andrew’s Day celebration. The best fiddler was to win an Italian made Cremona fiddle. The next year only the first twenty fiddlers to sign up were allowed to play. After they played their tune they were asked to play another tune for entertainment. Sometimes fiddle contests were simply groups of local fiddlers getting together to determine who was the ‘best’ fiddler. At times prizes were awarded but many fiddlers saw that as less important than the prestige attached to winning the contest. The fiddlers and the audience took these contests seriously, it was a matter of great local pride for a county to have a champion fiddler.” “People come from all over the state of California,” Johnson said. “It’s the last surviving fiddle contest in Southern California. It’s a big deal.” “Actually, our contest is famous,” Pitchford said, citing a history book that mentions the fair and its traditional popularity as well as mentioning how visitors from states like Florida have made it a point to attend and compete. Competition categories range from solo or twin fiddling, to novelty, to cello/bass, to picking, to band scrambles and more. The novelty category was formed to include more periphery instruments like the harmonica, spoons, psaltery or piano, while a band scramble involves random group assignments to participants who must “scramble” to choose

For the past several years, Pitchford said, the contest has featured a figure - whether from history or of current prestige - around whom the year’s theme is based. Henry Ford, as in, the founder of Ford Motor Company, is the 2013 centerpiece. Fiddlecontest.org explains: “In 1926, Henry Ford, who was greatly interested in oldtime fiddling, held contests at his Ford dealership. He sponsored fiddle contests at dealerships in hundreds of communities across the country. Ford’s promotion of fiddling helped contribute to its growing popularity on the radio.” “Henry Ford was a fiddler,” Pitchford said. “By his own admission, he wasn’t very good...He did this for a different reason, though.” Pitchford said the “roaring 20s” attitude prompted Ford to foster old time fiddling. “He was upset about the morals of the country,” Pitchford said. “He thought if he could get us back to that time [of playing music in the family], then the morals would get busy in the country.” “Fiddlin’ Down the Tracks” has a special divison this year to honor Ford: competitors perform a rendition of any song about cars. Pitchford gave examples of songs by the Beach Boys and Pitchford said this is a whole-family event. Besides the music, quilts by the Tehachapi Mountain Quilters will be on display and tobacco and alcohol are forbidden. “It’s good, clean family fun,” Pitchford said. Contestants - children and adults alike - must register no later than 30 minutes before the event. For contest rules, guidelines and schedule, visit District 3’s website: tehachapifiddlers.org.
TCT season opens with ‘Cake Wars’ comedy BY TEHACHAPI COMMUNITY THEATRE MEMBERS Tehachapi Community Theatre’s 45th season opens Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m. with “The Red Velvet Cake War.” “The Red Velvet Cake War” is an outrageous Southernfried comedy featuring a cast of characters one could never forget. Set in the heart of Sweetgum, Texas, the three Verdeen cousins, Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmy Wyvette, take the audience on a whirlwind journey of planning a family reunion with a sequence of events sure to make you laugh until you cry. Gaynelle, played by Chris
Morales, is a recent divorcee with a record. After “accidentally” crashing her minivan through her husband’s girlfriend’s double wide, she must prove to the community, her family, and most of all, psychologist Elsa Dowdall, that she is the sanest woman this side of the Mississippi. Peaches, played by Annette Kirby, is the number one mortuarial cosmetologist in the tri-county area, and although she attempts to help Gaynelle achieve stability, Peaches has some secrets of her own that are bound to be exposed. Then there’s Jimmie Wyvette, played by Shanan Harrell, who brings a whole
new definition to the word “peculiar.” Her “rough around the edges” appearance slowly changes as she engages in a competition with priss-pot Bitsy, played by Rebecca Wilson, for the affections of Sweetgum’s most recent widower. Joining the cast as Uncle Aubrey is Nick Benedict. You may know him as “Nick the Painter,” or as a former soap opera star from “All My Children,” “The Young and the Restless,” or “Days of Our Lives,” to mention a few. “Cake Wars” is Nick’s debut performance in live theater. The cast also includes Debbie Whitlock as selfrighteous Aunt LaMerle,
Ruthanne Jennings as sassy television host Cee Cee Windham, Leslie ReynoldsNuckolls as strict psychologist Elsa Dowdall, Gregory Hahn as “The Rock” Newt Blaylock, Bert Roper as Sheriff Grover Lout, and Silent Wolf as the outrageous Mama Doll. Don Juan’s is providing red and white wine before the show and during intermission on Friday and Saturday nights. “The Red Velvet Cake War” is on the Beekay stage every weekend through Oct. 13. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. See TCT/Page 6

Practical Money Matters
How to Survive an IRS Audit BY JASON ALDERMAN CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Few events inspire more dread than an IRS tax audit. Even if you're confident you've accounted for every cent of income and only taken legitimate deductions, it's hard not to worry what a close examination of your tax returns might uncover – not to mention the time spent tracking down old records. Here are a few pointers to help allay your fears and better prepare in case you should ever get chosen for the dreaded IRS audit:
There are three basic types of IRS audits: 1) Correspondence audit, which is conducted entirely by mail. You'll receive a letter from the IRS asking for additional information about specific items on your tax return. 2) Field audit, where an IRS agent comes to your home or business to examine records and observe where you work. 3) Office audit, where you must be interviewed at an IRS office. According to Chris Kollaja, a certified public accountant and partner at A.L. Nella & Company in San Francisco, California, if you're having a correspondence audit and you feel your records are too voluminous to mail, you can request a face-to-face audit. "You can also ask a representative, such as your accountant, tax preparer or lawyer, to help prepare for the audit and even attend it in your place, if allowed," says Kollaja. "An experienced tax professional can tell you what to expect, guide your responses and keep the audit on track should you get tongue-tied or
start sharing more than is necessary." The chances of being audited are low. "Sometimes returns are randomly selected for audit, but more often it's because something jumped out in the computer analysis each return receives," he explains.
Common items that might trigger an audit: • Taxable income listed on your return doesn't match amounts W-2 or 1099 forms, 401(k) plan or IRA distributions, brokerage accounts, etc. • Taking above-average charitable deductions relative to your income. • Deducting business meals, travel and entertainment. • Claiming the home office deduction. • Failure to report foreign bank account assets. • Concealing cash income or receipts. • Excessive cash transactions over $10,000. • Your close relationship to another taxpayer being audited. • Someone reports suspicious activity by you (the IRS offers a Whistleblower Award).
Kollaja recommends several ways to prepare for and attend an audit: Respond to the IRS within the stated deadline – usually 30 days. Organize paperwork and receipts pertinent to the issues they've identified. If you won't have everything ready in time for the audit, contact your auditor to discuss whether it can proceed anyway, or if they'll agree to postpone it. Bring or send only documentation requested in the initial notice. At an in-person audit, keep you answers brief and don't voluntarily provide information that could launch a fishing expedition. If the examiner questions you on an item not mentioned in the initial notice, you're allowed to ask for additional time to fulfill additional requests. Never give original receipts to the IRS agent – they are not responsible for lost paperwork. You're allowed to make an audio recording of the audit provided you sent your agent written notice 10 days before the appointment. Video recordings are not allowed. Always be polite. Acting belligerent or evasive can only hurt your cause. Kollaja suggests reading IRS Publication 556 to learn more about how the audit process works and reviewing the section on itemized deductions in Publication 17, both available at www.irs.gov. Bottom line: Think positively – you might even come out of the audit with a tax refund – it happens. Jason Alderman directs Visa's financial education programs.

Gaillardia (gay-LAR-dee-uh) LUCIA SANDY CONTRIBUTING WRITER
The genus Gaillardia was named in honor of the 18th Century French patron of Botany, M. Gaillard de Marentoneau. Gaillardias are in the Asteraceae family and are most commonly called Blanket Flowers. They are native to North and South America and are drought tolerant annuals and perennials that many gardeners find dependable for showy color in a variety of conditions and soil. The common name Blanket Flower is thought to be descriptive of the colorful petals that are similar in hue to the blankets woven by Native Americans. Gaillardias grow to a height of 12-18”. They grow best in full sun and prefer little water. The flower blooms are red, orange & bright yellow. Some flowers may only be a single color but most are multicolored. They bloom repeatedly from mid to late summer and again early to mid fall. The leaves are herbaceous with a velvety-fuzzy-texture. The plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and birds enjoy the seeds. When new plants first come up, they need average, regular watering; but do not over water. Once they start budding cut back on watering and let the soil dry out before watering. The more you ignore them the better it does. Seeds self-sow freely. Deadhead if you do not want volunteer seedlings next season Allow the seed heads to dry on plants; remove and collect in paper bags. The seeds when dry can be sharp and pierce the skin. Wear gloves when deadheading and collecting seed heads. Blanket Flowers can grow for many years. They come back year after year, if you allow them to reseed on there own. This beautiful plant is grown all over the United States, Mexico and Canada. It is very heat and drought resistant. Thus, it needs little water. Gaillardia is the Oklahoma state wild flower. Free seed packets are available from the Oklahoma conservation district offices. Lucia Sandy is a member of the Tehachapi Rose & Garden Society.

Step back to Kern’s Wild West BY GREGORY D. COOK TEHACHAPI NEWS
In its early days, Kern County gained something of a reputation as being one of the last places where the "old west" was truly wild, and nowhere in the county exemplified that reputation quite like the mining camps and ranches that dotted the lands of the Kern River Valley. Today, visitors can step back in time to those days with a walk down the streets of Bodfish's Silver City Ghost Town. The original owners of the land began moving historic buildings from around the Kern River Valley area to the site in the late 1960s in an effort to preserve the rich history of the region. With more than 20 buildings from places like Keysville, Whiskey Flat, Southfork and other local towns, mining camps and fron-
tier settlements, visitors can get a real sense of what the challenges of daily life in early Kern County must have been like. Silver City is set up to represent a typical Kern River boom town from the late 1800s, when the promise of gold and other precious metals, coupled with fertile pasture land for livestock saw a huge influx of hopeful miners and homesteaders pouring into the area. For the general admission fee of $5.50, visitors can embark on a self-guided tour of the town, aided by informative plaques and signs describing the history of such buildings as the original Isabella jail, general store, barber shop and the Apalatea/Burlando House. Believed to be the oldest standing structure in the Kern River Valley, the house is now home to a saloon and
country store. For an additional fee, guests can also receive a guided tour from one of the museum's docents, and local historian and current museum owner J. Paul Corlew, often guides tours himself. Of particular interest are Silver City's special lantern tours, which give visitors the chance to experience the museum at night, by lantern light, and it is during these tours that guests are often introduced to Silver City's other claim to fame. Many people believe Silver City Ghost Town to be a literal ghost town. The museum has been investigated by a number of paranormal groups, which often report unexplained happenings on the grounds, leading Silver City Ghost Town to be widely regarded as one of the most haunted places in America.
PHOTOS COURTESY OF LAKE ISABELLA ONLINE
Silver City Ghost Town, in Bodfish, has over 20 historic Kern River Valley buildings, arranged into a typical town from the late 1800s Guests on the lantern tours routinely capture ghostly images in their photos, and whether these are simply tricks of light, dust motes, or actually the spirits of Kern County's dearly departed pioneers remains to be seen. Silver City Ghost Town is located on Lake Isabella Boulevard, in Bodfish, and is easily accessible
from the Lake Isabella exit of Highway 178. The museum is open daily until mid-October. During the winter it is open weekends only. For more information on tours and operating hours, guests are encouraged to contact Silver City Ghost Town at 760-379-5146, or consult their Facebook page.
