    Fiddlers Crossing to feature string quintet on August 22

    Fiddlers Crossing is putting a classical note on the end of summer by presenting a string quintet in concert on Friday, Aug. 22, at 7 p.m., in St. Jude's In-The-Mountains Anglican Church, 1200 S. Curry St. The Millington Strings is a quintet of classical musicians who play their own arrangements of both classical and contemporary music. The group hails from Sacramento, where they perform in different formations -- duo, trio, quartet or quintet -- depending on the venue and occasion.

    Founder and cellist Stephen Millington studied music at US Davis and has advanced degrees in cello performance from CSU Sacramento. He arranges most of the music for the ensemble, as well as writing some of his own compositions. The repertoire reflects his eclectic tastes -- everything from classical opera and ballet to jazz, pop, folk, Celtic, Latin and movie and show tunes. For this concert, the ensemble will premiere Millington's own "American Suite," a four-movement piece built around contemporary pop music styles.

    Hungry Howie's serves pizza winner for a year!

    Hungry Howie's.jpg

    Elnora McKenzie loves the smell, the texture and the taste of pizza. She enjoys it so much that after leaving the pizza industry to work elsewhere, she returned by opening her own franchise with Hungry Howie's at 675 Tucker Rd. Her affection for the Italian dish obviously shines through because last fall Tehachapi News readership voted Hungry Howie's as producing the best pizza in town.

    One of her other joys is how pleased people are to eat pizza. Handing them the box hot with the ever-popular fragrance usually brings a smile to everyone's face. As of Monday, July 7, Stephen Hepner, 60, of Tehachapi will have more smiles than anyone else for miles around because he won a year's worth of the flavored-crusted pies. He jokingly commented that now he will have more friends, especially during the lunch hour.
