    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.
