Is it too late to sign up? I’m over 50, but I think I could run through a field of mud if I had a full head of steam and a tailwind, and I’m from Bakersfield so I know I could learn how to shoot a gun. Sunday, I attended the groundbreaking/dedication ceremony for the Bakersfield National Cemetery on East Bear Mountain Boulevard. Tejon Ranch donated 500 acres at the top of White Wolf Pass. The property is not impressive at all if you don’t like green meadows, 350-year-old oak trees, breathtaking mountain passes, poppies in the spring and crystal clear days in the winter when the valley below is smothered in fog.
