Letters to the Editor

By Kern Valley Sun / June 17, 2020

Dear Kern Valley Sun Editor, In last week’s paper (June 10th) you published an article titled “Another Pandemic Rocks the World…When will it end?”. When I read this I lost my breath as I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Your article was ripe with white privilege. The article was not a journalistic piece, it […]

Letters to the Editor

By Kern Valley Sun / June 17, 2020

Writing Out Loud: REOPENING, A NEW EXPERIENCE

By Kern Valley Sun / June 10, 2020

How did you react to the news that the stores were going to open again? You were no longer consigned to shopping online, and waiting for the UPS, FedEx man, or the US Postal Service to deliver whatever it was you ordered. You could now go to the store, touch what you saw, handle it […]

Cop Tales: Hard Headed

By Kern Valley Sun / June 10, 2020

In 1962, I was on my way home from a long shift around midnight on my Highway Patrol motorcycle when I saw a woman jump from the driver’s side of a slow-moving car going in the opposite direction. She was waving at me and shouting something. I stopped and she ran up and told me […]

Adding Insult to Injury

By Kern Valley Sun / June 3, 2020

When I was a city police officer, I was dispatched to a house to make a “Welfare Check”. When I arrived, I located a man who hung himself in the garage. He committed the act while his wife was at work and the children were at school. We were able to contact his wife, and […]
