By Kern Valley Sun / May 20, 2020

On behalf of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), I’d like to thank all those who work in nursing facilities — doctors, nurses, food preparers, housekeepers, and others — for their unwavering dedication to compassionately caring for the vulnerable residents who are relying on them during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Writing Out Loud: Who’s Normal is it Anyway?

By Kern Valley Sun / May 20, 2020

By: George Stahl Special to the Sun It seems impossible to think that we will not be returning to the world we knew before COVID-19. But a similar thing happened to us before. Maybe not to you or to your children, but it happened to your parents and to your grandparents. No matter where they […]

No Masks?

By Kern Valley Sun / May 13, 2020

There is a photo on the front page of the Bakersfield Californian on 5/7/20 showing many of the 300 supporters who participated in the Free Kern County Rally. I could not help but notice that not a single person in the photo is wearing a mask. I find it very disturbing that so many people […]

BEWARE OF FRAUD / SCAMS

By Kern Valley Sun / May 13, 2020

We are a little isolated from the Coronavirus here in the Kern River Valley. I am seeing more visitors than we should be seeing, as supposedly people are staying at home.

Driving out of lockdown

By Kern Valley Sun / May 13, 2020
