REEL REVIEWS: Thor: Ragnarok

By Kern Valley Sun Support / November 21, 2017

REEL REVIEWS / Josh Simpkins If I have said this once, I’ve said it a hundred and one times: Sometimes I just love my job. Especially when my job requires me to watch a film I quite genuinely want to view. I recently had the privilege of watching Marvel Studios 17th (17, my favorite number) […]

By Ray Conner / November 14, 2017

Conner’s Corner / Ray Conner Between seasons causes lull in sports reporting. With the early start to the school year and with fall sports for Kern Valley over, there will be a lull in high school action. Of course it will be back on track with the winter sports schedules and the start of the […]


The Reel Cinemaniac: Disney + Fox = AWESOME!

By Josh Simpkins / November 14, 2017

The Reel Cinemaniac / Josh Simpkins Oh, dear friends and neighbors, something amazing was just brought to my attention that could change the Hollywood landscape.

Writing Out Loud: It’s in the Fine Print

By George Stahl / November 14, 2017

Healthy Living: Smiling

By Christine Harness / November 8, 2017

It was just recently that the subject of smiling became prominent to me as a result of a personal experience. One evening, as my husband and I stood in line behind a group of seven or eight people waiting to be seated for dinner at a popular restaurant, one of the men directly in front […]


The Reel Cinemaniac: Got Zombies?

By Josh Simpkins / November 8, 2017

The modern zombie horror genre wouldn’t be what it is today without the work of George A. Romero. I think horror fans agree, by and large, that George A. Romero is singlehandedly responsible for the fact that zombies have become a cultural icon today. We wouldn’t have television shows like The Walking Dead, Z Nation, […]


Reel Reviews: Only the Brave

By Josh Simpkins / November 8, 2017

When it comes to civil servants, I hold much respect for our courageous firefighters. Yes, the police keep us safe from criminals, however, a person can be reasoned with, coerced or lulled into submission. Fire, on the other hand, can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or […]
