Healthy Living: Consolidation

By Kern Valley Sun / November 6, 2018

Consolidation Recently, my husband and I were reminiscing about a past antique car tour we had taken, and as we re-lived and reviewed the experience, I was interrupted by my husband, who said, “No, that took place on a previous tour to the same area, but on an earlier tour.” It startled me enough to […]

By Kern Valley Sun / October 31, 2018

By George Stahl It’s no secret, so there is no reason to sneak up on you with what today is. Obviously, it’s Wednesday, or you wouldn’t be reading this. What? Oh, yeah, it’s also October 31, the last day of the month. No! What? Oh…okay. It’s also two days after one of the most frightening, […]

Health Insurance Matters: Medicare Miscommunications

By Kern Valley Sun / October 30, 2018

Terminology can get a person in trouble. Regrettably, “not knowing” is not an excuse to avoid expense and aggravation. I read about this frequently. I am even on a task force to change this law.
