This is my 4th flat during traing this season. 1st two from not having enough rim tape (each rim), and the 2nd two is unkown. I think it might be the bead from my Kenda tires. I also use Michelin tubes. Could anyone recommend anything different to me which will give me less flats?

Stop riding all together, or install new tires. Kendas blow, so you're probably getting pinch flats. Use Michelin tires and cyclo cross specific Michelin tubes. I have had them for 3 months now and no flats. Oh, and get tire liners, that would help a lot too if you are getting flats from thorns.
