Writing Out Loud: THE SEVEN PLUS ONE

By Kern Valley Sun / December 26, 2018

By George Stahl It was on this day in history, in 1937, that Walt Disney, in a feature cartoon, first introduced us to seven of the most mismatched, thrown together bag of misfits ever assembled by the Brothers Grimm. These little guys were all of 3 feet tall, but had enormous hearts as big as […]

Healthy Living: Happy New Year!

By Kern Valley Sun / December 26, 2018

Happy New Year! Now that we have witnessed another year’s passing, it’s time to get our houses back in order following those fun times of package unwrapping, boxing up all of those shiny Christmas bulbs and lights.

By Kern Valley Sun / December 24, 2018

Reader’s Help Needed There is an overwhelming need in our community for health insurance for people who typically are too poor to purchase this newspaper each week.

Health Insurance Matters: Over-the-Counter – Free Money!

By Kern Valley Sun / December 11, 2018

Over-the-Counter – Free Money! Most of the Medicare Advantage plans in Kern County provide similar health benefits. No-charge office visits, and in many cases, no-charge hospital inpatient stays are fairly common. What is not widely known is that several plans offer what they call “over-the-counter” benefits.

Writing Out Loud: IN SMALL WAYS

By Kern Valley Sun / December 11, 2018

By George Stahl To borrow from a famous Christmas song, “You’ve heard of the many movements on social media calling for the boycotting or banning of certain things, but have you heard the most famous one of all?” Apparently, there is a group shouting across the internet to ban and even remove the story of […]
