Writing Out Loud: CHASING THE IN-BETWEENS

By Kern Valley Sun / June 19, 2019

By George Stahl Do you ever feel like you are almost getting what you want, you see it, you feel it, and you can even as they say, taste it? Then, it’s gone! Out of reach and fallen into the cracks somewhere. Whatever it was that was almost yours is in the world of in-betweens. […]

Beyond the Valley: The Castle & Lighthouse on Okracoke Island

By Kern Valley Sun / June 19, 2019

By Marsha Smith After an hour ferry ride from Hatteras to Okracoke Island, we drove 14 miles to the seaside village of Okracoke. The village is a vacation paradise, similar in some ways to Catalina Island. Great lodging, restaurants, shops, sport fishing, sailing, and if my memory serves me a golf course. Very walkable community, […]

Health Insurance Matters: Medicare Savings Programs Save Money

By Kern Valley Sun / June 19, 2019

I have been touting Medicare’s “Extra Help” program for years. The program is for lower income people with few assets getting relief from the high costs of prescription medication.

By Kern Valley Sun / June 19, 2019

By Kern Valley Sun / June 11, 2019

By George Stahl Look at the date! Today is June 12, OMG! Do you know what that means? “Yes, there are only 196 days until Christmas!” No! “Oh. I know! It was 38 years ago today that we first met Indiana Jones and he found the Lost Ark.” Again, no. Not the answer I was […]

By Kern Valley Sun / June 11, 2019

Picking Up Trash It’s very seldom I find anything good to say about our local Forest Service. I would like to thank Raul, the Forest Service Patrolman for the Paiutes, for saving me some work by cleaning up a lot of trash dumped by an ###hole on Saddle Springs Road about 75 yards off of […]

Fishing with Noble: Tackling the Mighty Kern

By Kern Valley Sun / June 11, 2019

Lake fishing has been no good this spring. I haven’t taken the time to fish the upper Kern. High river flows due to runoff is also part of the reason. I normally live to fish the upper Kern this time of year. I picked a fishing day and peeled myself away from our lake to […]

Health Insurance Matters: Plan Denies Coverage

By Kern Valley Sun / June 11, 2019

The representative from my Medicare Advantage Plan said that it will not cover the procedure my doctor says is needed. Is there anything I can do to ask my plan to reconsider? If your Medicare Advantage Plan denies coverage for a health service or item before you have received the service or item, you can […]

Conner’s Corner: Comfortable in time off

By Kern Valley Sun / June 4, 2019

By Ray Conner So much to talk about with so little time. Well, I guess there is time, as that is what I’ll be talking about to some extent here. The joys of being the sports editor at the Kern Valley Sun are short-lived as the month of June comes into view. For the next […]
