    Volunteers rescue 'Magnificent Seven' dogs

    On Monday, April 14, a Facebook post from Tehachapi Pets reached Chelley Kitzmiller, president of Have a Heart Humane Society, while she was on a mini vacation in her RV. The post said that a half dozen or more Chihuahuas had been spotted in an equipment yard at the south end of South Street. They were crawling out from under the fence and running free. Kitzmiller noted that several people had posted to see if they could help.

    "I was frustrated because I was too far away to do anything myself, so I prayed my volunteers could help," said Kitzmiller, who called three Have a Heart volunteers from her cell phone: Carol Larimore, Opal Lawler and Ruthanne Jennings. The women hurried to the site and helped round up the terrified little dogs and load them into Lawler's car. There were seven in all, now named "The Magnificent Seven."

    Volunteers sought to help clean up demonstration garden in Golden Hills

    The Fire Safe Demonstration Garden at the Golden Hills Community Services District office is a quiet spot residents sometimes visit to enjoy a peaceful moment. The garden, designed and installed by the Tehachapi Fire Safe Council, also serves as a classroom to teach residents about building a defensible space around their home.

    "I love it," explains GHCSD Board Member Laura Lynne Wyatt. "More than being a nice spot for a five minute vacation, it shows that defensible space around your home can be beautiful."
