Beers, brats and bands: Oktoberfest comes to Stallion, Kohnen’s BY TECHACHAPI NEWS Beer-lovers looking for information about Oktoberfest in Tehachapi, here's what you've been waiting for: Main Street Tehachapi will not be sponsoring the September Oktoberfest of recent years. Instead, Kohnen's Country Bakery and Stallion Springs Recreation Department have events planned. Kohnen's Oktoberfest Kohnen's Country Bakery is resuming its own celebration with Kohnen’s 10th Annual Oktoberfest Brews & Brats, to be held the first two Saturdays in October. Enjoy bratwurst, German-brewed beer, and live German polka music from 2 until 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5 and Saturday, Oct. 12, in Kohnen's dining room. Last year, owners Thomas and Colleen Kohnen celebrated at the Stallion Springs Oktoberfest with a group of friends. “It was so nice to go to another local Okotberfest and not have to work it,” Colleen said. Next year, she added, she plans to hold Kohnen’s celebration the last three weekends of October instead of overlapping with Stallion’s day. “The first weekend will always be for Stallion,” she said. The co-owner said this year’s event will be a little different from previous

years. “This is a transition year for us as we take it from the street and move it indoors,” Colleen said. “That’s why we are splitting it into two weekends.” Kohnen's is located at 125 W. Tehachapi Blvd. For more information, call 8223350. Stallion Springs Oktoberfest Local craft beer-makers are getting ready to show off their talent during the Oktoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 5, from noon until 6 p.m. at the Stallion Springs Community Center, 27800 Stallion Springs Dr. Several delicious varieties of beer will be available: craft brewed or handselected by Stallion’s own brew master Steve Olson. Two wine selections, an apple cider concoction and homemade root beer, cherry coke and crème soda, are offered for those who shy away from an ice-cold pint. The Stallion Springs event is open to area residents and visitors. Guests can choose from a variety kid-friendly activities like a

jump house and petting zoo, food, beer, wine, live music and more. Although

admission is free, some activities and commodities require purchasing.


Cooks turn bratwurst on the grill at a previous year's Oktoberfest celebration at Kohnen's Country Bakery, 125 W. Tehachapi Blvd. The bakery will serve bratwurst at its Oct. 5 and 12 Oktoberfests, which begin at 2 p.m. and run through 7 p.m.

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.

Gardening Time


Yippeee! Fall is finally here! It was so hot this summer that gardening was hardly any fun at all. If you’ve been waiting to install a new landscape or spruce up your old one now is the time to get it done. Make a list, head to the nursery, shop until you drop, and then return home to turn your yard into a paradise. October is a great month to plant. Many kinds of bulbs, flowers, herbs, shrubs, trees, vegetables and lawns perform better when planted in the fall rather than the spring.

Why is fall planting better than spring? Well it is not that it is better, but it is easier to get plants to establish in a landscape. Less work and less water are needed and the success is more visibly rewarding. Because days are becoming shorter and average temperatures are dropping the plant does not need to spend all of its energy trying to cool off. Instead the energy goes to promote growth, especially root growth. Planting in fall allows plants to develop a stronger root system and become well-established in the ground over the winter months. They will be ready to grow next spring and they will perform better through the


summer heat. And if you're lucky, the winter rains will provide most of the watering for you!

season annuals like impatiens, marigolds, vinca (Madagascar periwinkle), and zinnia, etc., since their flowering season is drawing to a close. Herbaceous Perennials – These plants flower once or twice a year and live for several years. Some die back in winter and push new growth in spring. Be careful with spacing perennials, many people make the mistake of crowding them together. They will be with you for years and sometimes do not reach their full size in the first year. The selection of perennials is overwhelming. See AUTUMN/Page 13

So what do you plant now? Cool season (winter) Annuals – We recommend building a base of perennial plants in your garden and using annuals for “pretty spots of color.” Cool season annuals are planted in the fall and flower through early spring. You might try calendulas, columbines, foxgloves, Iceland poppies, lobelia, Love-in-amist, nemesia, pansies, primrose, snapdragons and sweet peas, to name a few. Avoid planting warm

Autumn planting helps to make gardening easier

Continued from page 12 There are oodles of sizes, shapes, textures, and flower colors to choose from. Nurseries are brimming with the “tried and true” and showcasing new varieties all the time. CA Native Plants – Many people think that drought tolerant natives are hard to grow because they plant them in spring and then over water them in summer. Native plants are acclimated to our dry summers and often times their roots rot when watered too heavily in summer. By planting in the fall your success rate with drought tolerant natives is guaranteed to rise. There are many asters, ceanothus, columbines, coral bells, penstemons, salvias, and ornamental grasses that will thrive in our landscapes. Shrubs and Trees – Most landscape trees and shrubs are best planted in fall. If you want to plant deciduous landscape trees with fall color, then shop for them, while their leaves are turning, so that you pick a good specimen. Be sure to dig the hole at least twice as wide as the rootball and only as deep. Plant a little high to make sure that water drains away from the trunk. Fruit trees can be planted bare root in the dead of winter. Lawns – Now is a good time sod or seed new fescue lawns and patch existing ones. Vegetables and Herbs – It is time to plant cool season vegetables, like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, lettuce, onions, beets, rutabaga, spinach, and turnips. Many herbs are perennials like chives, lavender, mint, oregano, rosemary, sage and thyme and benefit from a fall planting. Now is not the time to seed or transplant basil, but you can seed cilantro and parsley for a late fall crop. You can even seed wild flowers and poppies right where you want them to grow. Michelle Lestrange is with the University of California's Master Gardener program in Tulare-Kings County.


Calico Ghost Town: Stroll down the streets of an actual 'Boom Town'


Calico Ghost Town often hosts special events such as Civil War reenactments. BY GREGORY D. COOK TEHACHAPI NEWS

Whether taking a break on the way to Las Vegas, or simply traipsing around in the eastern Mojave Desert, a visit to Calico Ghost Town can provide hours of entertainment and education for the whole family. Located about an hour and a half east of Tehachapi, just north of Yermo off Interstate 15, Calico was once an actual California boom town. Established at the height of the California silver rush in 1881, the town served miners working the more than 500 area mines of California's largest silver strike. But by the turn of the 20th Century, declining silver prices and playedout mines saw the population dwindle, and like so many boom towns, Calico went bust. In 1951, Knott's Berry Farm founder Walter Knott and his wife Cordelia purchased the abandoned town and began restoring the dilapidated buildings to their 1880s condition. Referencing period photos and the memories of former residents, the Knotts rebuilt the ghost town and in 1966, they donated it to San Bernardino County, making the town a county regional park. Today, Calico Ghost Town is a state historical landmark and offers a variety of activities for visitors. As guests stroll down Calico's stereotypically-western Main Street, they can shop for souvenirs in the General Store, have a vintage portrait taken at the town photo studio or enjoy a cool drink at Lil's Saloon, one of the original 1880s build-

ings. There is also a museum, a mystery shack where the usual laws of gravity get twisted in entertaining ways, a schoolhouse, and a house constructed from empty bottles. While building materials could sometimes be hard to come by, mining boom towns such as Calico seemed to have almost endless supplies of empty bottles coming from the many saloons, which the occasional enterprising settler might put to good use. The stores and restaurants are all decorated in period style, and costumed workers and entertainers also add to the ambiance, and "gunfights" regularly breakout in the street, harkening back to the wild days of the town's past. Calico owed its early existence to mining, and there are still a number of mining-related actives in which today's visitors can take part. The Maggie Mine

was one of the area's original working mines, and guests can take a self-guided tours of the old mine and learn about the process of silver mining. There is also a recreation of an assayer's office, with exhibits showing how the silver was extracted form the ore. Intrepid, would-be miners can even try their hand at panning for "fool's gold," and the Calico-Odessa Railway gives guests the opportunity to take in the scenery from the type of train that was used to cart silver ore out of the mines. Calico Ghost Town is open daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., except for Christmas Day, and general admission to the town is $8 for adults and $5 for children 6-15. Minimal additional fees are applied to some of the town's attractions. Camping and cabin/bunkhouse rentals are available, as well, and certain buildings in the park are available for special events. For more information visit the park's website at


This representation of the Calico schoolhouse, was painstaking modeled using photos of the original building.


Calico's Main Street is lined with both recreated buildings, as well as few of the original, 1880 buildings.

Do you have a plan to be safe? Important safety advice in advance of the Oct. 17 ‘Great ShakeOut’ The ability to survive and recover from a major earthquake will depend on the amount of planning each Californian does in advance— would you know how to contact a loved one after the next quake strikes? Plan to be safe (Step Two of the “Seven Steps to Earthquake Safety”) by communicating with your family and neighbors now about what to do during and immediately following an earthquake. “The Great ShakeOut,” scheduled for October 17 at 10:17 a.m. provides an opportunity to review essential plans and preparations, which should be a part of everyone’s life in earthquake country. The Great ShakeOut is four weeks away and 8.3 million Californians and have already registered to practice the annual “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” drill. Plan to be safe by creating a disaster plan and deciding how you will communicate in an emergency. FEMA and the American Red Cross offer great suggestions for planning for disasters. Here are aspects to consider when planning for earthquakes: • Identify safe spots in

every room, such as under sturdy desks or tables, or on the ground next to an interior wall away from windows and things that may fall. • Earthquakes can start fires, so store a fire extinguisher where it can be easily accessed, and learn how to use it (P.A.S.S. - Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep). • People often cut their feet during or after earthquakes when they get out of bed and walk barefoot on broken glass or other fallen objects. To keep shoes and a flashlight within reach, put them in a bag and tie it to your bed frame or headboard. • Access to making long distance phone calls is usually restored first. Choose someone who lives out of the area for everyone in your family to report their status, then learn how to Text First, Talk Second from ShakeOut partner Safe America Foundation. • If you are a person with a disability or need extra help, include your personal support network in your plan and visit for a variety of resources. • Find out if you live, work or play in a tsunami zone and make sure everyone knows how to get to higher ground if necessary. Californians can see if they are at risk for tsunami, earthquake, fire and flood hazards by visiting visit For more about how to plan to be safe, go to The Earthquake Country Alliance, a partnership of California science, emergency management, preparedness and many other types of organizations, has created “The Seven Steps to Earthquake Safety” ( vensteps) to help people prepare to survive and recover after the next damaging earthquake. Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills are coordinated worldwide by the Southern California Earthquake Center with a broad network of local ShakeOut coordinators, with support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, National Science Foundation, and U.S. Geological Survey. The Great California ShakeOut is organized by the Earthquake Country Alliance, which includes California Office of Emergency Services, U.S. Geological Survey, California Earthquake Authority, American Red Cross, and many other organizations. Extensive information is available for the public and media at the ShakeOut and Earthquake Country Alliancewebsites. Join the conversation with the Great California ShakeOut on Facebook and Twitter.

Practical Money Matters

Seniors: be on high alert for scams BY JASON ALDERMAN CONTRIBUTING WRITER

I look forward to the day when we no longer need to warn senior citizens about scams designed to separate them from their hardearned money. I'm not holding my breath, however. According to the FBI, senior citizens make attractive targets for con artists for a variety of reasons: • They're more likely to have a nest egg, own their home and have good credit. • Seniors are less likely to report fraud because they don't know where to report it, don't realize they've been scammed, or are too ashamed at having been duped – possibly fearing they won't be trusted to manage their own finances

going forward. • When elderly victims do report crimes, they often make poor witnesses because of faulty memory. • Seniors are more susceptible to products promising increased wealth, cognitive function, virility, physical conditioning, anti-cancer properties and so on. Here's a roundup of common telemarketing scams targeting seniors and how you can avoid them: Be wary, even if callers appear legitimate. Caller ID "spoofers" pretending to represent your bank, credit card company or government agencies may try to trick you into revealing personal information under the pretext of fixing a security breach. When in doubt,

hang up and contact the organization yourself. Other common telemarketing scams include: • You've supposedly won a free prize but are asked to pay for handling, postage or taxes. By law, you never have to pay for any legitimate prize. • Get-rich-quick schemes, like those involving Nigerian princes trying to smuggle funds out of their country using your bank account in exchange for a cut of the amount. • The "Grandparent Scam," where someone pretending to be your grandchild calls in a panic, claiming to have been arrested or injured (often abroad) and asking you to wire them money – and not tell their

parents because they're embarrassed. • Soliciting funds for fake charities, especially after natural disasters. • Companies offering seniors free medical equipment or services. After you provide your Medicare number, they forge a doctor's signature and bill Medicare for unneeded goods or services you never actually receive. • Some particularly brazen thieves will even offer to help you recover money you've lost to other scammers (who are often part of the same operation). Although direct telephone contact is common, scammers also use mailers, email, texts and advertisements to lure potential victims into contacting them for further

information. A few tip-offs these offers – whatever the channel – might be bogus: • The offer sounds too good to be true. • High-pressure sales tactics – they won't take no for an answer have sensiblesounding answers for your every question or hesitation. • You must make a decision "right now" because the offer will expire soon. • Claims that you are one of just a few people eligible for the offer. • Your credit card number is requested for verification. Never provide credit card or other personal information by phone, letter or email unless you made the initial contact. • You are urged to provide money quickly and not given

time to consider the offer. • There is no risk. All investments have some risk, except for U.S. Government obligations. • They refuse to provide detailed written information. • You are asked to trust the telemarketer. Like your mother always said, "Don't trust strangers." The Federal Trade Commission ( has a Scam Alert Blog that exposes the latest scams, as well as a site where you can file a complaint if a business doesn't make good on its promises or cheats you out of your money. Jason Alderman directs Visa's financial education programs. To Follow Jason Alderman on Twitter:
