Letters to the Editor (pub. 2/7/18)

By Kern Valley Sun / February 6, 2018

Good Samaritan Tuesday, Jan. 30, I did a very careless thing. I loaded my groceries at Dollar General in Wofford Heights and left my wallet and phone in the seat of the cart. When I got home and looked for my phone, I realized what I had done, and I was so worried. I prayed […]

The Reel Cinemaniac: EGGERT vs. BAIO

By Kern Valley Sun / January 30, 2018

The Reel Cinemaniac / Josh Simpkins Ever since the Harvey Weinstein debacle broke, Hollywood sexual misconduct scandals have been popping up left and right like spring weeds in a rose garden. I have tried to steer clear of all this dreariness as newspapers and news broadcasts have been inundated with these dark, unsettling stories. The […]

Writing Out Loud: Planet of the Apes, Almost

By Kern Valley Sun / January 30, 2018

By George Stahl Planet of the Apes is based on true events. Really? Well sort of. It’s not a secret that before Alan Sheppard headed off into space to be the first man out there, that animals actually saw the stars before man did. Dogs, monkeys, mice, a rabbit, and even fruit flies all were […]

Letters to the Editor (pub. 1/31/18)

By Kern Valley Sun / January 30, 2018

“I’m on a roll” I see that our local gas stations have raised the price of gas by ten cents in the past week. And yet Bakersfield and Ridgecrest stations have not. How can this be? Is our small valley is the only place affected by “big oil” price fixing? I recently needed a starter […]

The Reel Cinemaniac: Heathers Remake

By Kern Valley Sun / January 23, 2018

The Reel Cinemaniac / Josh Simpkins To be honest, my love of film began at a very early age. I had an extensive collection of movies, on VHS mind you, at the age of 11. Of all the films in my 300-plus-tape treasure trove, there was one that I talked my sister into buying me […]

Healthy Living: Mental Maintenance

By Kern Valley Sun / January 23, 2018

Healthy Living / Christine Harness With all of the current attention the media and medical staff give to the growing prevalence of the dementias, it seems strange to me that so few elderly people and their relatives are actually seeking resources toward prevention and management of care that is helpful. It’s somewhat like chronic smokers […]

Reel Reviews: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

By Kern Valley Sun / January 23, 2018

Reel Reviews / Josh Simpkins Some films are so good that they don’t ever need a sequel, for instance, Gone with the Wind. Some films are made with sequels in mind. Some sequels come right away and probably never should’ve seen the light of day, while others take 20 years to reach the silver screen—and […]

By George Stahl There have been millions of inventions since the beginning of time that have benefited mankind. Among them, the creation of fire is probably the best of the first. Imagine, for the first time, being able to have fire whenever you wanted it, wherever you needed it and you didn’t have to carry […]
