Healthy Living: Pain & Adaptation

By Christine Harness / September 12, 2017

I have noticed that I’ve devoted an extraordinary amount of my life to the process of adaptation. When I take the time to think about it, I guess we have all done so. As we age and develop, our lives demand it of us. Adapt: “to make suitable especially by changing,” “to change so as […]


Writing Out Loud: PC-nado

By George Stahl / September 12, 2017

By George Stahl Computers are a bust! It took me at least an hour longer to write this than normal due to some stupid computer thing. Slow responding, then no responding. How many times has that or something else computer related caused you to have a mini nervous breakdown? There has to be a name […]


Field Day on the Kern

By Noble Smith / September 6, 2017

It has been tough lately to get on the water. Working a lot of hours definitely cuts into fishing time. To make things even worse, my boat is under repair, installing a new trolling motor. This last week, I had a window of opportunity. After a six-day work week, I had a day off. I […]

Summer is wrapping up, although you wouldn’t know it from the fall heat of late, but the kids are back in school and the majority of the tourist season is behind us. Fortunately, we maintain a small but steady tourist trade throughout the year with the fall and winter events, such as Kernville’s Fall Festival […]


One Step Ahead of the Storm

By George Stahl / September 6, 2017

It was a dark and stormy night, the cheap dime store novel began. Many mysteries and old time horror books used that opening line, but if the story was set last Sunday night, it could have been a perfect description. Early that evening, a thunderstorm rolled into the valley and took on a strong indication […]


The Reel Cinemaniac: Remembering Tobe Hooper

By Josh Simpkins / September 6, 2017

There is an old saying that says something about deaths happen in threes. With the Reaper working overtime these past few months, it seems that deaths are happening hand over fist. No one is safe, not even beloved film directors. First back in April we lost Oscar-winning director Johnathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs). […]


Bodywisdom: Transformative Theatricum Botanicum

By Nancy Ivey / September 6, 2017

Accompanied by family and friends, I recently visited Topanga’s Theatricum Botanicum to see Merchant of Venice, a Shakespearean play about a Jewish moneylender who loans a Venetian merchant a large sum of money for which the “interest” is “a pound of flesh.” We read the play together beforehand hoping to understand the gist of the […]

Have you been wondering what you are going to do with the rest of your life? Maybe you’ve been contemplating going to a two year college to get your Associates degree, or the idea of a four year college fits your plans better. A higher education is definitely something to be desired and strived for. […]


Pushin’ Up Daisies: Denying Denial

By Kern Valley Sun / August 30, 2017

By Tracy Lee My mother’s health is failing. She may be gone from us soon. She is very sad and wants her children by her side at all times. She recently suffered a disastrous 11-day hospital stay following what was supposed to be a day surgery. From the hospital, she was released into a nursing […]


The Reel Cinemaniac: fast five news bytes

By Kern Valley Sun / August 30, 2017

By Josh Simpkins As you may or may not recall, friends and neighbors, sometimes when I’m in search of a news worthy story to report I find myself enamored with multiple small, surprising news bytes that just stick with me. These little tales that can be summed up in the span of a tweet can […]
