Brian and Rosa Scott arrived in Tehachapi in September. Rosa came from Colorado Springs which had been their home for many years and Scott came from his previous assignment in Turkey. Brian is a government contractor and had been stationed near Tarsus until receiving his new assignment at Edwards Air Force Base. His areas of expertise range from mathematics to military arts, business administration and international relations.

Brian was born in Boston but since his dad was in the Navy, Brian said that he grew up all over the United States including Guam where his dad was an engineer. He has three brothers; in fact, he says that there have been no girls in his family for four generations. He went to high school in Colorado Springs and joined the army right out of high school – to avoid the draft. As part of the 82nd Airborne, he was sent to Germany with a desk job. He said he hated it and transferred to the infantry which he found he really liked. As a Green Beret, he was based all over the US and Korea. He once was assigned to a guard post in the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) in Korea.

It was during his stint in Korea that he met Rosa who was working at the officer's club. Rosa was born and raised in Korea and she has one brother. She said that she once worked for a Korean loan company as a typist in English; however, when she met Brian she was a caddy at the golf club. Brian claims that she is a superb cook and specializes in gourmet and Asian dishes.

After 15 years in the army, Brian finally left the military. He said that for a while he tried working in residential construction and also did some military construction before becoming a government contractor. He and Rosa have two sons. The eldest, Henry, lives in Bakersfield and is involved in the Pistachio industry. Grant lives in Australia with his wife who he met in England and their two sons – remember, no girls in four generations.

Welcome to Tehachapi, Brian and Rosa.

I met Louise Angelone at the September Senior Fair. She had moved to Tehachapi from Apple Valley about three months prior with her five year old canine companion Mr. Bojangles, Bo for short. She said that she was still trying to figure out where everything was located in town. Louise added that when she had finally retired at the age of 72, her son, Dino, who lives in Tehachapi wanted her to live closer than Apple Valley.

Louise was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. She said that there are things about Tehachapi that remind her of the area in which she grew up. When she got married in 1978, she moved to California to begin a new life. They settled in Granada Hills in the San Fernando Valley and raised three children, two girls and a boy. Louise worked in medical records at Granada Hills Community Hospital.

When she finally moved to Apple Valley, it was because her daughters were both living there. For many years she worked as a nurse's aide for the Apple Valley School District until her first retirement. For the following two years, she was a hospice volunteer.

She talks very proudly of her three children. Tina is the oldest and now lives in West Hills. She has a girl and two boys and is herself grandmother of Louise's three great-grandchildren. Louise's son, Dino, lives in Tehachapi and has two sons and two daughters. He has lived in and worked at his plumbing business in Tehachapi for over 20 years. Many residents are very familiar with Angelone and Sons and Tehachapi Plumbing. Carla lives in Rancho Cucamonga and has nine children. She has two boys and two girls of her own and has adopted five more from all over the world. Louise said that she thinks they also have about five dogs. "They love kids and animals," said Louise. Louise added that one has to admire those who can share their life with so many.
