Even before Orville and Willie made it off the ground in 1903, humans have pondered over flying. When metal birds began populating the sky, some of the fascination may have gone away; but for many, airplanes are still objects of wonder. Air shows and fly-ins remain popular events for aviation lovers and inquirers. A quick Google search results in many links to lists of air shows across the world. Tehachapi will host its own fly-in on Sept. 28 at the Tehachapi Municipal Airport. Like other similar events, the fly-in holds to a theme: World War II warbirds. Kim Nixon, who owns an aviation business in town with her husband and also serves on the City Council, helped organize the event. She said individuals and organizations got together back in April to brainstorm how the airport could host more community events. She said the fly-in was the easiest to organize, especially since she and her husband have relationships with warbird owners and pilots through their business. Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks District partnered with the airport supporters to sponsor a Tarmac 5K Fun Run and 1-Miler Kids Run that Saturday morning. Both runs will be on the airport runway at 8 a.m. Registration begins at 7 a.m. “It’s a cool opportunity to run

World War II planes such as this P51 and the Albatross shown on the cover will crowd in to Tehachapi Municipal Airport on Saturday, Sept. 28 for a fly-in. Planes begin arriving to the Warbird Fly-in event at 10 a.m. where the planes land,” said TVRPD recreation supervisor LeAnn Williams. “I’m stoked to have runners at the airport. Tarmac runs are starting to trend back East. It’ s cool to bring a another trending-type event to our community.” Airport officials have assured the community that air traffic will be diverted during the run and certain other times throughout the day. At 10 a.m., the airplanes will begin to arrive. Nixon said among the planes they are expecting are three P51 Mustangs, two T6s, a J2 Cub, two T28s, an Albatross and possibly a Spitfire and B25. “The planes will be on display and people will be able to talk to the pilots,” Nixon said. “There will also
be some military vehicles on display.” The Knights of Columbus and the Lions Club will be selling food, while TVRPD will sponsor a beer garden in Aviator Park. Between 1 and 2 p.m., pilots who choose to participate with their WWII planes will give a demonstration. Tom Glasgow, airport manager, said at the Aug. 19 City Council meeting that the FAA granted permission for low-flying fast passes. “I think this will be really great for the community...to get to use their airport,” Nixon said. To sign up for the run, call TVRPD at 822-3228 or visit their office, 490 W. “D” St. Although there is a fee to participate in the run, the fly-in is free.

The Tehachapi Heritage League is sponsoring its first field trip of the fall season on Sunday, Oct. 6. The participants will car pool to the Kern Valley Museum and Native American Center in Kernville. Participants are asked to meet in front of the Tehachapi Museum, 310 S. Green St., at 8:30 a.m. The group will travel to Kernville via the Lion's trail route. This is a very curvy road and may not be suitable for all drivers, in which case Highway 178 is recommended. The tentative schedule is to tour the museum
from 10:15 a.m. until noon; eat lunch and socialize from noon until 1:30 p.m. We should then be at the Native American Center at 1:30 p.m. and leaving at 2:30 p.m. You may bring a lunch, as there is a nice place to eat along the Kern River. There is also a nice restaurant close by for those who prefer to eat inside. There is no admission charge, but donations are gladly accepted. Reservations are required by Oct. 3. Call the Museum during museum hours, 8228152, or for more information, call Harold at 823-8038.

The Acting Company storms LPAC with ‘Hamlet’ performance
Self-Serve Now Available at www.tehachapinews.com/subscribers
BY LANCASTER PERFORMING ARTS CENTER The nationally and critically acclaimed touring troupe, The Acting Company, will bring “Hamlet” to the Lancaster Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Oct. 6 at 3 p.m. “Hamlet” was considered to be one of Shakespeare's most popular works during his lifetime and while it ranks among one of his most-performed works, this will be the first production of “Hamlet” by The Acting Company in its 40-year history. Set in the Kingdom of Denmark, the play drama-
tizes the revenge Prince Hamlet exacts for his father’s murder, setting him on a journey seeking his personal mortality. It vividly portrays overwhelming grief and rage while exploring themes of danger, revenge and moral corruption. “Hamlet” is among Shakespeare's most powerful and influential tragedies. Many believe “Hamlet” is the best Shakespearean work, certainly one of his most wellknown and oft-quoted, and may indeed be the perfect play. Ian Belknap, director for
“Hamlet,” as well as The Acting Company’s artistic director, previously directed John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men,” which performed at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center during the 2012/2013 season. Founded in 1972 by producer/director/actor John Houseman and current producing director Margot Harley, with members of the first graduating class of Julliard’s Drama Division, The Acting Company has performed 137 productions for millions of people across 48 states and 10 foreign countries. Their pas-
sion and dedication to the arts has earned the Company a TONY® Honor for Excellence in Theater as well as Obie, Audelco and Los Angeles Critics Circle Awards. Don’t miss the chance to see an off-Broadway show in the Antelope Valley with The Acting Company’s production of “Hamlet” at LPAC. Orchestra seats are available at $29 and $19, while children 12 and younger are $12. Tickets may be purchased online at LPAC.org, by phone at 661-723-5950, or in person at the LPAC Box Office, 750 W.

Chris Proctor returns to Fiddlers Crossing in concert Oct. 6 BY DEBORAH HAND-CUTLER CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Chris Proctor will return to Tehachapi for a matinee performance in Fiddlers Crossing on Sunday, Oct. 6. Proctor has previously played for the Bear Valley Cultural Arts Association, to rave reviews from all who heard him. Critics have called his guitar playing “breathtaking,” “haunting,” and “elegant.” Proctor is a national champion in fingerstyle guitar, blending elements of jazz, Celtic, old-time, pop, and classical music with a dash of blues thrown in for good measure. In his concerts, he ranges from his own compositions to traditional tunes and covers of such pop standards as “Knights in White Satin” and “Paint it Black.” He somehow makes his single six- or 12-string guitar sound like a full orchestra. With 10 CDs and several instructional videos and DVDs to his credit, this consummate pro is sought after for workshops and clinics. Proctor lives in Utah, but once traveled around the West giving clinics for Taylor Guitars, including regular appearances in the former Buskers Music Store in Bakersfield. Fiddlers Crossing is looking forward to welcoming Chris Proctor back to town. Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 E. “F” St., at Robinson Street, in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased next door at Mountain Music, Tehachapi Treasure Trove, 116 E. Tehachapi Blvd., Tehachapi Furniture, 20346 W. Valley Blvd., or with a

Much more than just a rest area
This panel, with the story of Tulare Lake, is typical of the collection on display at the Philip S. Raine Safety Roadside Rest Area.
Continued from page 12 side Rest Area Master Plan, prepared in April 2011, the average annual daily traffic along that stretch of the 99 is 45,000 cars and just under six percent of those vehicles stop at the rest area each day. It's too bad more people don't stop as an $8.5 million renovation has turned the rest area named for a former chief of the state Division of Highways into a grand display of the history and culture of the San Joaquin Valley. On each side of the highway the shade structure in front of the restrooms now boasts 24 panels that tell the story of the San Joaquin, from the native Yokuts to early and presentday agriculture, development of cities and the culture,
including tributes to people of the valley including Buck Owens, William Saroyan and Cesar Chavez. Surrounded by cornfields, with the Sierra Nevada to the east, the rest area doubles as an artful interpretive center. Shade trees and grass, covered picnic tables, restrooms and water fountains provide the traveler with the typical amenities, but the custommade drain covers with a tule motif honoring the plant for which Tulare County was named and the names of fruits and vegetables grown in the valley stamped into concrete carry the theme well beyond what you would expect. Exeter resident, historian and publisher Chris Brewer consulted on the project and

Saving seeds for next year’s garden BY ROSE CERTINI MASTER GARDENER
As shorten and temperatures cool ever so slightly, a gardener’s attention turns from harvesting backyard bounty to saving seed to start next year’s crop.
It’s easy to dry these little pent-up bundles of potential energy and poke them in the ground in spring. The hard part comes early on - as in now - in studying which plants stayed pure enough to save from, and which got
“crossed” during the summer, rendering them unreliable sources of genetic material. Keeping a seed line unmarred can be tricky, but don’t lose sleep over it – if things get mixed up you can always go to the nearest nurs-

ery or online to buy another packet. Seeds come from the store in two styles: hybrid and open-pollinated, with the latter sometimes further defined as “heirloom,” meaning the seed line has been around 50 or 60 years. Hybrids are known for producing fruits of uniform size, heavy crops and good disease-resistance, but unfortunately hybrid seed doesn’t breed true to type, so the seed you save today planted and grown to maturity won’t produce fruit that looks or tastes like the parent. Open-pollinated plants on the other hand reliably pass along the exact same traits from one season to the next. So how do you know what you’ve got? If you still have it, go back to the seed packet and look for the words “heirloom” or “hybrid” next to the varietal name. Some seed companies print “F1,” after the name, which also means hybrid. If the envelope doesn’t specify, go online to see how other seed companies regard your seed variety. The next things to know are how the plants in question spread their pollen: by insect, wind, or by self (internally
Sliced vegetables show the seeds drying in the tomato fruit. prior to blossom). Self-pollinators such as beans, peas and most modern tomatoes are easy to save seeds from: they pollinate themselves early while the bloom is still closed, so crossing is not an issue. You can grow plants of differing variety next to each other and still collect the seed. Potato-leafed tomatoes, eggplant, okra and peppers tend toward self-pollination but may also allow insect activity, so isolate varieties with as much space as you can spare. Cucumbers, melons and squash are a different matter. Bees and other bugs can move pollen up to a quarter-mile, while corn pollen whisked along by the wind can pollinate corn a half-mile or more down the road. To get around this limitation, stagger planting dates by a month and use varieties known to be early or
late, so the first puts on fruit before the second gets to the blossoming stage. For example early white bush scallop squash can be easily followed by trombetta squash. Life would be easy growing only one variety each of cucumber, melon, squash or corn, but wouldn’t that be boring – lacking that special spark of horticultural or culinary challenge. Plus, it’s not as if you have to save every type of seed every season – most keep good in storage anywhere from two to 10 years, depending on plant type and variety. For the nitty-gritty on how to save from most species of edible plants, check out Seed to Seed, by Ashworth, New Seed Starters Handbook, by Nancy Bubel, and web sites howtosaveseeds.com, fedcoseeds.com, seedsavers.org, and motherearthnews.com.

Practical Money Matters
Don't dawdle on student loan search BY JASON ALDERMAN CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Millions of young Americans recently began their senior year of high school. If your kid is among them, he or she is probably busy juggling homework, extracurricular activities and maybe a part-time job – all while trying to savor the last official year of childhood and simultaneously prepare for impending adulthood. You, on the other hand, are likely just wondering how the heck you're going to pay for college. College may be a year away, but scholarship and loan application deadlines are just around the corner. As you'll soon learn, there are tons of decisions to make and documents to fill out. Plus,
some states award aid on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning funds for your child's dream school could be exhausted by the time you get your paperwork together. If that doesn't make you want to get the jump on financial aid, I don't know what will. Your first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, which is required by virtually all colleges, universities and career schools for federal student aid, as well as for most aid from states and individual colleges. It's easiest to file an FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov You can also get a hard copy from your child's school or by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID. The FAFSA filing deadline for fed-
eral loans isn't until June 30, 2014, but many state and individual school deadlines fall months earlier. Many types of student aid are available to help cover costs at four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, and trade, career or technical schools, including: Hundreds of thousands of free scholarships and fellowships are awarded each year. Visit www.finaid.org/scholarships for helpful tips. Federal Pell Grants are needs-based grants given to low-income students to pursue post-secondary education. The maximum annual Pell Grant amount is $5,500; but students can receive Pell Grants for no more than 12 semesters. They need not be repaid.
Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants for up to $4,000 a year are awarded to undergraduates demonstrating exceptional financial need. Federal Work-Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. Low-interest Federal Perkins Loans are for students who demonstrate exceptional financial need. They are "subsidized," meaning the government pays yearly interest while students are enrolled. They have no origination or default fees. Direct Stafford Loans are low-interest federal government loans with no origina-
tion fee and come in two varieties: needs-based "Subsidized" loans for undergraduate students where the government pays the yearly interest while students are enrolled; and "Unsubsidized," for undergraduate and graduate students of any income level, where students are responsible for interest that accrues while enrolled. Private Education Loans are offered by lenders to students and parents to supplement government loans. They aren't government-guaranteed or subsidized and typically carry higher interest rates, although you can borrow greater amounts. Details and rates vary widely. Some colleges sponsor their own loans to students and parents. Interest rates
may be lower than federal loans. Check each college's aid materials to see if they're available. PLUS loans are federal loans that graduate or professional-degree students and parents of dependent undergraduate students can use to pay for education expenses. They are made through participating schools at a fixed interest rate. There is an origination fee. Visit the Federal Student Aid site (studentaid.ed.gov ) and www.FinAid.org for complete explanations of the different types of grants/loans, calculators and many other tools.
