BY TEHACHAPI NEWS Justice will be served in the Tehachapi Community Theatre Too production of the “Trial of the Big Bad Wolf,” opening at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 19, at the Beekay Theatre, 110 S. Green St. The Three Little Pigs have had enough. They are bringing charges against the Big Bad Wolf for destroying their homes. But as the trial unfolds, everyone finds there is plenty of blame to go around. Director Heather Ringle, who is also routinely involved in organizing TCT Too productions, said this play is very much geared toward families. “It’s a kids’ play, but it’s very funny,” she said. “There’s jokes the older kids and adults will find amusing.” Besides the humorous storyline content, the play also calls for audience participation. Ringle said “reporters” will go into the audience to conduct interviews and one child in the audience will get to join the cast on stage in part of a scene. Ringle added that the play is a slight deviation from what TCT Too has performed in the past.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your persistence pays off as the information you demanded starts to come through. The pace is slow at first, but it begins to speed up as the week draws to a close. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) An unwelcome bit of news jolts the Bovine, who would prefer that things proceed smoothly. But it's at most a momentary setback. A Leo brings more welcome tidings. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You need to pay close attention to the details before making a commitment. Don't accept anything that seems questionable, unless you get an

From left to right, Kacey Brocklesby (Judge Wise O. Al) and Emily Stults (The Big Bad Wolf) share a laugh during a rehearsal of the “Trial of the Big Bad Wolf” at the Beekay Theatre, 110 S. Green St., Tehachapi. “Instead of the teens performing an adult play, I wanted to see how it goes with them performing a family play,” she said, referring to the contrast in difficulty between plays written for adult professionals and those for amateurs. “When you put the teens in roles that are geared more towards children, it allows them to give more input into their character roles.” TCT Too is an off-shoot of Tehachapi Community Theatre, created to give children and teens the chance to learn about the-
answer that can be backed up. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Congratulations on getting that project up and running. But as exciting as it is, don't let it carry you away. Make sure you set aside time to spend with family and friends. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Be sure you're part of the discussion involving your suggestions. Your presence ensures that you can defend your work, if necessary. It also helps gain your colleagues' support. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A misunderstanding needs to be dealt with, or it can grow and cause more problems later on. Be the
ater production, both onand off-stage. Ringle said if the kids do not want to be onstage, they can participate in set production, costuming, and occasionally get the chance to direct. “[TCT Too] is a great way to give kids an activity to do that’s low-cost,” Ringle said. “It builds great friend-
ships, self-esteem and leadership skills.” Besides Ringle’s director guidance, Kendric Bertram is also pitching-in as director. Repeat offenders on the Beekay stage are Emily Stults, Kasey Brockelsby, Lanie Ringle, Heather Simmons, Jacob Witter, Lucy Asatryan, Jared Anderson, Micaela Bardonnex, Mia and Sophia Bonham, and Annette Hertz. New to the Beekay line up are Madeleine Cass, Reagan Gaines, Abby Herrera, Kaylee Howells, Haily Jockinsen and Brooke Langston. All the actors are between the ages of 13 and 20. Tickets cost $10 and can be bought at the door, Picture Perfect, 112 E. Tehachapi Blvd., Johnny's Take 'n Bake, 807 Tucker Road, Tehachapi Furniture, 20346 W. Valley Blvd., and tctonstage.com.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Set some strict guidelines for yourself so your heavier-than-usual work schedule doesn't overwhelm the time you need to spend relaxing with loved ones. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might feel a little uncomfortable being among people you hardly know. But remember that today's strangers can become tomorrow's valuable contacts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Reward yourself for all that you've accomplished despite some annoying situations that got in your way. Enjoy a well-earned getaway with someone special.

What you need is to find someone who thinks like you and will support your ideas, even if others say they're too radical.

Just a short drive from 90 mile drive south from downtown Tehachapi amid the rolling hills alongside Interstate 5 is the Santa Clarita Valley. Located at the northern part of Los Angeles County, the valley is home to the internationally renowned California Institute of the Arts and is the center of Hollywood’s film production. And while Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park in Valencia is the area’s main attraction, there is a plethora of additional sights and attractions in and around the area. Arriving early in the morning, the first stop on any trip should be to one of the oldest and largest flea markets in Southern California — the Saugus Swap Meet, where early risers can take advantage of scoring some great deals at on some really cool stuff. Going strong for over 40 years, the swap meet is open every Sunday, with additional market days on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Hours of operation are 7am-3pm and admission is just $1.50 with free parking. After a morning of cashing in on some great deals, shoppers can build up quite an appetite, and there's plenty of places in the Santa Clarita Valley to grab a bite to eat. Farrell’s Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor has full-service dining and a snack area to keep you energized, with burgers, pizza and hot dogs, and more. But if you're looking for a little nostalgia, the Saugus Cafe is place to be. The cafe style restaurant located at

In fact, the entire Santa Clarita Valley became part of a booming “Silver Screen” era in 1915, providing colorful locations in a surreptitious setting not too far from the bright lights of Los Angeles. Many movies were shot just next door in neighboring Newhall, home to Melody Ranch Studio — a 22-acre back lot for many of Hollywood's major studios.

lection of Western artwork by noted artists Charles M. Russell, Frederic Remington, and Joe de Yong, as well as mementos from early Hollywood. Admission is free. Finally, The Walk of Western Stars, sponsored by the City of Santa Clarita and the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce, began in 1981 to honor the legends of Western film, stage, television and radio who have contributed to America's heritage since 1900. The Old West comes alive on the streets of Old Town Newhall with Western stars like Gene Autry and Tom Mix immortalized in bronze and terrazzo tile along the sidewalks.

Health & Fitness Ask the Doctor Hormones can cause female facial hair BY PAUL G. DONOHUE, M.D. CONTRIBUTING WRITER
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I'm a 26-year-old woman with an embarrassing problem. I'm growing a mustache. What causes this? I have started to shave, but I worry that shaving is going to make the hair grow faster and coarser. I see some hair on
my breasts, too. What can I do about this? — V.K. ANSWER: Hair growth in females in places where it should be found only in males is hirsutism (HEREsuit-izm). Such areas include the skin above the upper lip, the chin, the chest, the thighs, the upper back and the abdomen. Hair in those places is sen-

sitive to the action of male hormones. Common causes for such hair growth are idiopathic (a definite cause not found), menopause (when female hormone production dips) and polycystic ovary syndrome. Polycystic ovary syndrome is fairly common. Signs of it are a diminution or complete stoppage of menstrual periods, hirsutism, obesity and large ovaries with many cysts. One of the mechanisms responsible for some polycystic ovary symptoms is an overproduction of androgen — male hormones. The unwanted pattern of hair growth stems from androgen excess. Idiopathic hirsutism — hair growth without a
cause found — might be a mild form of polycystic ovary syndrome. That's a popular theory expounded by many experts. Rarer causes of hirsutism include adrenal gland overactivity, tumors of the adrenal gland or ovary, pituitary gland tumors and some prescription medicines. You're not going to solve this on your own. You need a doctor to evaluate your hormone status. The appropriate treatment hinges on finding a specific cause. When a cause cannot be found, shaving, electrolysis, depilatories (chemical hair removers) and laser treatments are options. Shaving doesn't make hair grow faster or coarser. Vaniqa cream, a prescription item, gets rid of unwanted hair quite well. Birth-control pills work when a woman needs

I have different information from doctors. I had my first colonoscopy when I was 51. The doctor who performed it said I didn't need another until I was 61. A different doctor says I need a repeat at 56. Which is it? — E.P. ANSWER: If no polyps were found on your first exam and if you have no close relatives who have had colon cancer, then the usual time for the next exam is 10 years. Otherwise, it is five years.

Only about half of U.S. adolescents are physically active five or more days of the week, and fewer than one in three eat fruits and vegetables daily, according to researchers at the National Institutes of Health. In a survey of youth in 39 states, NIH researchers questioned nearly 10,000 students between 11 and 16 years old about their activity levels and eating habits. NIH researchers charted patterns of physical activity, screen time and diet after surveying 10,000 students between 11 and 16 years old. The researchers classified these patterns as typical, unhealthful and healthful. “The students showed a surprising variability in eating patterns,” said lead author Ronald J. Iannotti, Ph.D., of the Prevention Research Branch of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development (NICHD), the NIH Institute in which the study was conducted. “But most — about 74 percent — did not have a healthy pattern.” The researchers found that the adolescents’ diet and activity habits could be classified into three general categories. They described the first group as unhealthful. This group accounted for 26 percent of participants. The second group, classified as healthful, accounted for 27 percent. Because it was the largest group — including 47 percent of participants — the researchers classified the third group as typical. The researchers surveyed participants about: their daily amount of physical activity, the amount of time they spent in front of a computer screen or other electronic screen, and the amount of healthy and unhealthy foods they consumed. The analysis of the survey results showed
that the typical youth were least likely to exercise five or more days each week or to eat fruits and vegetables at least once a day. They were more likely to spend time watching television, playing video games or on a computer than the healthful group, and less likely to do so than the unhealthful group. The unhealthful group consumed the most sweets, chips, french fries, and soft drinks. They also were more likely than the other groups to report watching TV, playing video games and using a computer more than two hours a day. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans , children and adolescents should get one hour or more of moderate or vigorous aerobic physical activity a day, including vigorous intensity physical activity at least three days a week.

(Family Features) Every big, juicy steak deserves to be seasoned with an equally big, bold flavor. Next time you fire up the grill, layer on savory goodness with spices and marinades. They bring out the natural flavor of steaks, ribs, roasts, burgers, chicken and fajitas. Start with a tender, savory cut and there is no need to marinate.

Rosemary grows Protecting your landscape from wildlife damage in many forms BY MELINDA MYERS CONTRIBUTING WRITER
They’re cute, they’re furry and they love to eat — your landscape that is. If you are battling with rabbits, deer, groundhogs or other wildlife, don't give up. And if you are lucky enough to be wildlifefree at the moment, be vigilant and prepared to prevent damage before these beautiful creatures move into your landscape to dine. Anyone who has battled wildlife knows the frustration and difficulty involved in controlling them. Your best defense is a fence. A four foot high fence anchored tightly to the ground will keep out rabbits. Five foot high fences around small garden areas will usually keep out deer. They seem to avoid these small confined spaces. The larger the area the more likely deer will enter. Woodchucks are more difficult. They will dig under or climb over the fence. You must place the fence at least 12" below the soil surface with 4 to 5 feet above the ground. Make sure gates are also secured from animals. Some communities allow electric fences that provide a slight shock to help keep deer out of the landscape. Another option is the wireless deer

As much as you might enjoy wildlife around your home, you probably want to protect your landscaping. Gardening writer Melinda Myers offers some suggestions. fence. The system uses plastic posts with wire tips charged by AA batteries. The plastic tip is filled with a deer attractant. When the deer nuzzles the tip it gets a light shock, encouraging it to move on to other feeding grounds. Scare tactics have been used for many years. Motion sensitive sprinklers, blow up owls, clanging pans and rubber snakes strategically placed around a garden may help scare away unwanted critters. Unfortunately urban animals are used to noise and may not be alarmed. Move and alternate the various scare tactics for more effective control. The animals won't be afraid of an owl that hasn't moved in two
weeks. Homemade and commercial repellents can also be used. Make sure they are safe to use on food crops if treating fruits and vegetables. You’ll have the best results if applied before the animals start feeding. It is easier to prevent damage than break old feeding patterns. Look for natural products like those found in Messina Wildlife’s Animal Stopper line. They are made of herbs and smell good, so they repel animals without repelling you and your guests. Live trapping can be inhumane and should be a last option. Babies can be separated from their parents, animals can be released in unfamiliar
territory, and trapped animals can suffer from heat and a lack of food and water. Plus, once you catch the animal, you need to find a place to release it. The nearby parks, farms and forests already have too many of their own animals and therefore they don't want yours. The key to success is variety, persistence, and adaptability. Watch for animal tracks, droppings and other signs that indicate wildlife have moved into your area. Apply repellents and install scare tactics and fencing before the animals begin feeding. Try a combination of tactics, continually monitor for damage and make changes as needed. And when you feel discouraged, remember that gardeners have been battling animals in the garden long before us. MELINDA MYERS is a TV/radio host, author and columnist with more than 30 years of horticulture experience and has written over 20 gardening books, including Can’t Miss Small Space Gardening.

COURTESY OF THE NATIONAL ARBORETUM Rosemary’s classic flavor enhances many kinds of food, making it a popular culinary herb in the garden. Not only are the plants beautiful, but, planted near the kitchen, they provide a fresh source of edible leaves at your fingertips. In the National Herb Garden at the National Arboretum, there are 51 different rosemary cultivars representing the many forms, flower colors, fragrances, and varying cold-hardiness. Plants may be upright, lax and sprawling, or prostrate, almost hugging the ground; leaves may be broad, thin, or short and stubby; flowers are generally blue, but also come in pink or white; and fragrances vary from plant to plant as well, ranging from a warm, rich pine to almost unnoticeable. Rosemary’s hardiness can be as variable as its physical traits. The two most commonly grown hardy rosemaries are Rosmarinus officinalis "Arp" and R. officinalis "Madelene Hill." As a rule of thumb, cultivars with thinner leaves and lighter flowers are hardier, and prostrate types are the least hardy. No matter what cultivar is grown, there are a few practices that will help with winter survival. It is best to plant rosemary in the spring so the roots have a long, warm summer to become established, and place it in a location that gets full sun throughout the year. A site sheltered from winter winds is best. In heavy, clay soils, mulching with gravel will reflect light and heat back into the plant and help prevent soil-borne diseases from splashing onto the leaves.

How to help your pet live a long, healthy life
HAPI NE C A W H E S T
Dogs once had to work for a living — many were bred to hunters, herders or protectors. They’ll be healthier if you make sure they have plenty of activity. (Family Features) Pet parents do everything they can to ensure their dogs and cats are around as long as possible. Pets, much like humans, need a healthy diet and plenty of exercise to help them live a long and happy life. Good nutrition is key There are many factors involved when it comes to choosing a pet food for your dog or cat. Keep in mind if your pets aren't digesting the ingredients properly, nutrition is not being absorbed. Get maximum nutrition from every bite by purchasing a natural, high quality food with a digestive health support system, such as Holistic Select Natural Pet Food. Ingredients to look for include: • Probiotics — or good bacteria — help keep your pet's immune system healthy. Holistic Select contains live probiotics that are added to the food after it has been cooked and cooled. This process assures maximum survival of the probiotics, so that your pet reaps the full benefits of their food. • Prebiotics stimulate the growth and maintenance of good bacteria, like probiotics, in your pet's digestive tract. • Fiber plays an important role in human digestive health, and it also plays an integral role in your pet's digestive health. Look for foods with fiber-rich ingredients, such as oatmeal, flaxseed, pumpkin and papaya to promote digestive regularity. • Digestive enzymes help your pet's body break down proteins, fiber and carbohydrates. This ensures your pet is getting the nutrients from their food, while reducing stress on their organs. This is especially crucial for aging pets.

Toys that mimic the actions of their natural prey will help your cat stay active, and healthier. hunters, herders or protectors. Most pets today have a much more sedentary lifestyle. They spend their days lying around, waiting for their human companions to come home and are rewarded for their patience with a big bowl of food. However, regular exercise supports healthy circulation of both nutrients and waste and is essential for a pet to have a happy and long life. Experts recommend cat owners plan a daily play session. Toys that mimic the actions of their natural prey — birds, mice or bugs — should get them up and moving. Dogs need to be walked for 20 to 30 minutes each day, while larger breeds often need much more. At your next veterinarian visit, ask if your pooch is healthy enough for an exercise program and ask for recommendations based on breed. Adequate exercise is an important step toward good health. It's also a great way to reduce such unwanted behaviors as chewing, digging, scratching or whining. To learn more about the importance of digestive health for your pet, visit www.HolisticSelect.com.

Practical Money Matters
Retiring soon? Donâ€™t forget tax implications BY JASON ALDERMAN CONTRIBUTING WRITER
If your retirement is not far off, you've probably already started to estimate what your living expenses will be after the regular paychecks stop. Most would-be retirees remember to include routine expenses like housing (rent or mortgage), medical bills and prescriptions, insurance premiums, transportation â€“ even food and entertainment. But don't forget to factor in taxes, which can have a substantial impact on your cost of living, depending on where you live and what your sources of retirement income will be. Here are a few tax-related issues to consider when budgeting for retirement: Social Security. Most people can begin collecting Social Security benefits as early as age 62, albeit at significantly reduced amounts than waiting until their full retirement age (65 for those born before 1938 and gradually increasing to 67 for those born in 1960 or later). Although many states don't tax Social Security benefits, the federal government does. Depending on your "combined income" (adjusted gross income plus nontaxable interest earned plus half of your Social Security benefits), you could end up owing federal income tax on a portion of your benefit. It's complicated, but basically: â€˘ Single people whose combined income is less than $25,000 aren't taxed on their Social Security benefit. For combined income between $25,000 and $34,000, up to 50 percent of your benefit may be taxed. Over $34,000, up to 85 per-
cent may be taxable. â€˘ For married couples filing jointly: benefits aren't taxable for combined income below $32,000; benefits for income between $32,000 and $44,000 are up to 50 percent taxable; over $44,000 â€“ up to 85 percent taxable. â€˘ To learn more about taxation of Social Security benefits, read IRS Publication 915 at www.irs.gov. Some people discover after beginning to collect a reduced Social Security benefit that they can't make ends meet and must go back to work, which can backfire: If your annual wages exceed $15,120, you will lose $1 of Social Security benefits for every $2 you earn over that amount (investment income doesn't count.) Rest assured, however: These benefit reductions are not completely lost: Your Social Security benefit will be increased upon reaching full retirement age to account for benefits withheld due to earlier earnings.
IRA and 401(k) withdrawals. After age 59-1/2, you can start withdrawing balances from your IRA without paying the 10 percent early withdrawal penalty â€” although exceptions are made in cases including disability, qualified first-time homebuyer distributions and certain medical expenses. However, you will pay federal (and state, if applicable) income tax on IRA withdrawals â€” except for Roth IRAs held at least five years, whose contributions have already been taxed. With 401(k) plans, you can withdraw funds after age 55 without the 10 percent penalty if you are no longer employed by the company sponsoring the plan. Other taxes. Some people move to another state after retirement thinking they'll lower their tax burden. For example, seven states do not tax personal income; however, another two tax only dividend and interest income. And five states charge no sales tax. But because other taxes and cost-of-living expenses vary significantly by community, you should only consider such moves after doing thorough research. The Retirement Living Information Center (www.retirementliving.com) features breakdowns of the various kinds of taxes seniors are likely to pay, state by state, including those on income, sales, fuel, property and inheritances. Bottom line: Be sure to consult a financial advisor long before retirement to make sure you fully understand all the many tax and income implications.

Money tips for your teen (Family Features) â€” Most parents have learned things about money they wish they had known at a younger age. But when it comes to broaching the topic with their own teenagers, about a third would rather talk to them about smoking, drugs and bullying than money. H&R Block provides free financial education for teens through H&R Block Dollars & Sense, which offers these tips: Encourage learning by earning. You may or may not want your teen to hold down a job while in high school, but you can instill the concept of earning by encouraging occasional paying projects, such as babysitting or mowing lawns. Practice makes perfect. Ask your teen to manage a portion of the family budget, such as writing the weekly menu and grocery list to fit your budget or keeping track of eating-out expenses every month. Save now, spend later. Open a savings account for your teen to plan for future purchases. If you're able, offer to match a portion of their savings to encourage the behavior. Set some limits. If your teen has a credit card, set a realistic credit limit so the balance can be paid in full each month. Be a good financial role model. Pay your own bills on time and ask your teen to be part of the process. For more tips visit hrblockdollarsandsense.com.

Coffee with the artists
More Arts & Entertainment
Continued from page 7 sion along with complimentary coffee and Kohnen’s pastries. Attendees will have time for informal conversation with the panel members. All the participants are members of TVAA, as well as members of Gallery ‘n’ Gifts. Colby, whose awardwinning sculpture is exhibited in galleries and collections throughout the country and abroad, shows not only her sculpture, but her popular jewelry. In addition to producing her out-

standing art, she is head of TVAA’s signature cause, the Scholarship Committee. This year, TVAA proudly awarded approximately $4,000 in scholarships to local high school seniors. Cowden, a prolific, creative, and meticulous seamstress, keeps everyone guessing, month to month, as to what new delightful creation she will introduce. From placemats to satin pillowcases to spa wraps — you never know what she will be up to next. She also finds time to serve as the
president of TVAA. Tomlinson, in a relatively short time at the gallery, has made quite a name for herself as a jeweler. Although beading is her first love, she also calls herself something of a “rock hound.” Her wire-wrapped stone pieces are gaining in popularity. Tomlinson also serves as the organization’s secretary. For more information on “Coffee with the Artist,” call Anita Jesse at 661-7477122. Exhibits at Gallery ‘n’ Gifts change monthly.

Cleo is a lovely golden eyed beauty. Compared to her sisters who are also available, Cleo is the chill one. While they’re romping to their hearts’ content, she’s off to the side, analyzing, waiting for the best moment to pounce then striking. Her favorite things include naps, chowing down on wet food, and cuddling. 5 months old, spayed, up to date with her shots, Cleo is ready for the future. Intrigued? Perhaps Cleo is the one you’ve been searching for. Or maybe one of her sisters? Or her mother? These wonderful cats were left in a box on a porch. They are now ready for great homes. They were lucky we had room for them, usually when this happens they must go to the shelter.
