For most men, getting older is a distant thought; a time when bucket-list items are crossed off the list, financial goals are accomplished, and retirement awaits. But then, one day, we wake up and realize that we're not just getting older - we are older. Workouts in the gym start to cause more aches and pains the next morning. Keeping weight off around the midsection is much harder than it once was. Stretching before an impromptu game of basketball isn't just a good idea - it's necessary for you to perform. And that gets to the crux of what men hate most about aging - the inability to perform as they used to, whether it's in the bedroom or on the basketball court.
Unfortunately, there's no avoiding the inevitable. As men age, their testosterone levels deplete, causing a slew of mid-life maladies like:
- Loss of Energy
- Lack of Interest in Sex
- Low Sex Drive
- Can't Hold an Erection
- Weight Gain
- Muscle Loss
- Hair Loss
- Nagging Injuries
If you're a man in his 30s or 40s, and you feel like you're dragging your feet through life with no upside, don't lose hope. Millions of men just like you are experiencing the same symptoms and feelings that you're suffering through. In fact, almost 75% of men live life with undiagnosed low testosterone.
Unlike those men, however, you don't have to settle for the effects of aging. There are easy, science-backed solutions available to you right now. If you're ready to reclaim the looks and feel of your prime, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be for you. TRT in Glennville, CA bridges the gap between your old life with low-T and the new, more virile version of you. That's where Testosterone Optimization Program comes in - to facilitate your transition to a new life with optimal testosterone levels. With TOP by your side, you'll have the guidance and tools to get back on track with personalized TRT plans.
But to understand the life-changing benefits of TOP, you've got to first understand testosterone, the symptoms of low-T, and how TRT works to replenish this much-needed hormone.
Trust the TOP Difference
Did you know that one in five men over the age of 45 exhibit signs of low testosterone? Male testosterone levels begin dropping gradually as soon as age 30. As men age and start to question their sexual health, some of the top symptoms they report are low libido, erectile dysfunction, and delayed ejaculation. When combined, these symptoms can lead men to develop self-image issues, experience poor relationships, and even have a lower quality of life.
But for men living with low-T, a clear path has been paved toward relief. That path starts with the Testosterone Optimization Program. TOP was founded to give men with low-T a new lease on life - one that includes less body fat, fewer performance issues in the bedroom, and more energy. If you're ready to feel and look younger, it's time to consider testosterone replacement therapy from TOP. TRT in Glennville, CA, is safe, streamlined for convenience, and personalized to your unique needs. That way, you can age on your own terms and love life as you did in your prime.
Patients choose TOP because we take the time to learn about your low-T symptoms and provide personalized, in-office treatment. Other benefits include:
- Blood Tests to Determine Low-T Diagnosis

Through the treatment plan our low testosterone doctors create specifically for you, they can help alleviate most, if not all, of the symptoms associated with low testosterone.559-354-3537

Storms pound Kern, prompting floods, evacuation orders

After 47 years of living in northeastern Kern, James Hall has seen his fair share of floods. Still, when he rolled into work at 5:30 a.m. Friday in Kernville, he checked his phone, and looked out at the nearby park.
"The water had just crested up to the park," Hall said.
By 11 a.m., the water had risen to within several feet of the bridge that rides overhead. The park was gone. Hall has seen his fair share of floods — he still remembers the one from "'83" — and this one stuck out.
“We had some good ones but not quite to this degree," Hall said.
Evacuations were ordered in Kernville and Riverkern on Friday, as a devastating series of storms from an atmospheric river pounded Southern California and parts of the Central Valley.
Outside the Kern County Office of Emergency Services Friday evening, county officials said there are more than 200 boots on the sodden ground, carrying out the evacuation proceedings for the low-lying areas of Kernville and Riverkern, as well as Tillie Creek and Wofford Heights.
This includes the areas: south of Riverkern, between Sierra Highway and Burlando Road, north of the Kernville Airport, east of Arnold Spring Spur Drive, south of Wofford Heights Boulevard, north of Old State Road.
"Part of the big portion of the problem we've had is not so much how much rain but that we've had historic snow in the past weeks," said Kern County Deputy Fire Chief Billy Steers. "Between snow melting and rainfall north of the county is what's impacted the Kern River along with Tillie Creek and other creeks in the Kern River Valley."
Carrying a prodigious amount of rain, the atmospheric rivers have recharted California's weather patterns and brought both devastation and promise to the state that previously weathered a lengthy drought. Through Thursday night and into Friday the storm has flooded roadways, toppled trees and forced some residents into shelters.
Officials said they began to consider an evacuation after noticing the Kern River could potentially rise above the Kernville area. According to Kern County Fire Chief Aaron Duncan, firefighters began going door-to-door, telling residents to leave.
"You know we go through these exercises several times a year, and most of the time, they don't turn out to be a serious event," Kern Sheriff Donny Youngblood said. "This is a serious event."
An evacuation order means that the current flooding is an immediate threat to life. The Kern River, according to county estimates, peaked at 17 feet and just under 45,000 cubic feet per second, which surpasses a 50-year record. Typically, it flows at between 2,300 and 2,500 cubic feet per second.
Officials recommend that if people must travel from the evacuation areas, they should go along Sierra Way to Highway 178 to Kern Valley High School, located at 3340 Erskine Creek Road in Lake Isabella. Duncan said the evacuation order went out to at least 2,000 people. A shelter was previously established at the Kern River Valley Veterans Center, which is now closed.
He added that the shelters will stay open "as long as they need."
"If the capacity of the shelters does max out we will look at other areas and request other avenues," Duncan said. "If that's the need, we will continue that process."
Another shelter was being established at the Elks Lodge on Wofford Heights Boulevard and was to be open by Friday night.
Volunteers with the Red Cross, which is coordinating the shelter operation with the county, said they are providing meals and snacks, hydration, emotional support, health services and more. County officials can also provide animal services for those with pets.
Evacuation assistance for residents with physical limitations was offered by the county until 11:30 a.m. Friday.
As of Friday evening, Kern County Public Works reported 30 roads across the county had been closed. Rancheria Road, Mil Potrero Highway, Sierra Way and Glennville area roads all required snow chains Friday night.
The National Weather Service in Hanford extended its flash flood warning into Friday night for northeastern Kern and southeastern Tulare County, with some areas receiving nearly 12 inches of rain.
And Caltrans is urging residents to avoid unnecessary travel in the affected areas, pointing to more severe storms expected over the weekend. While Interstate 5 was open Friday night, heavy rains and standing water limited drivers to a slower speed. California Highway Patrol spokesman DC Williams said officers hope to keep the interstate open through the night, but advised against unnecessary travel.
“Please don’t travel if you don't have to,” Williams said. “But for those that do need to, just make sure you're careful because we don't know how the land is going to react to all this water.”
President Joe Biden approved a presidential emergency declaration Friday afternoon, which gives the state of California and its local governments eventual access to federal resources and services, if they are unable to handle response themselves.
"The President’s action authorizes FEMA to coordinate all disaster relief efforts to alleviate the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population,” a press release said Friday. “And to provide appropriate assistance to save lives, to protect property and safety and to lessen or avert the threat of catastrophe.”
The Federal Emergency Management Agency, with this declaration, is allowed to “identify, mobilize and provide at its discretion” resources to local and state governments.
Robert Barker, a spokesperson for FEMA, cautioned that this declaration means the state and federal agencies have taken a precautionary measure, and that it doesn’t mean residents should expect federal assistance at this time. This declaration, unlike a disaster declaration, is perfunctory and involves several more steps before help can be requested.
“California is so well resourced already,” Barker said. “They very infrequently need help… I can’t think of a time they requested additional resources.”
Kern County Chief Administrative Officer Ryan Alsop said the county will declare a local emergency at some point over the weekend, stating that the county expects considerable property damage will need to be assessed later. Any emergency declaration by the county will appear before the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
What Glenville coach Ted Ginn Sr. sees in Ohio State football commit Arvell Reese

And while Reese grew up to be a linebacker, spending his first three years of high school football at Euclid, the Glenville High football coach kept tabs on him, always knowing he had potential.
When Reese transferred to Glenville in December for his senior season, all Ginn wanted to do was help put the final touches on the linebacker’s potential.
“We just put it together,” Ginn said. “I’m just happy for him. He’s grown up and things have gotten into place for him.”
Arvell Reese: What new commit will bring to Ohio State football
Reese committed to Ohio State on Saturday, ending a fast-and-furious recruitment where offers from Alabama, Southern California, Penn State and Michigan rolled in after the linebacker transferred to Glennville.
To Ginn, the potential for Reece’s greatness started with his size.
Standing at 6 feet 3 and 212 pounds, Reese has “always been freakish,” Ginn said, combining size with athletic ability and speed, which they worked on when he first arrived at his school in December.
Ohio State's 2023 QB continues to grow:Brock Glenn picks Ohio State football, ready to continue growth in quarterback room
“Just his ability to run and hit and attack," Ginn said. "I haven’t had a linebacker like that in years that can fill a hole that quick just naturally. When he really gets coached up, I can only imagine what it will be.”
Ginn said he feels those attributes will make Reese the next great Ohio State linebacker. But the Glenville coach also knows the responsibilities of jumping into the Buckeyes program.
Over the course of his storied tenure at Glenville, Ginn has developed a pipeline of talent between his program and Ohio State with players such as Marshon Lattimore, Chris Worley, Cardale Jones, Donte Whitner, Troy Smith and his son Ted Ginn Jr.
Ginn said he never cared where his players went to play at the next level. He’s more focused on his players' mentality heading into college.
“There’s always someone looking at you who wants to be like you," he said. "You have to be the example of hope for these people. And you have to understand that you are going somewhere to work and to serve. That’s what I think him and everyone else should be thinking about.”
As for continuing the Glenville-to-Ohio State pipeline, Ginn said the weight is solely on Reese’s shoulders.
“He has to represent the people that went before him," Ginn said. "It’s pressure. He will get pressure from right here. Because you are not just representing Arvell. You represent the whole community, a whole class of people who went there, and you have to stand up.”
It’s a pressure Reese realizes, saying after participating in Ohio State's summer recruiting camp June 14 that he gets reminded of that Glenville and Ohio State connection all the time, along with 2024 four-star cornerback Bryce West, with whome he is close.
Ginn will have only one full year with Reese. But he already knows what Ohio State is in store for.
“I think what we’re seeing now is just the tip of the iceberg,” Ginn said. “I think he can be world class.”

A dog grooming business in Glenville has a new owner, one who is already overhauling the shop and making a list of changes.
Dogz Best Friend across the street from the Happ’s Place restaurant on Hwy. 107 is now owned by Carrie Forsyth Russell, a professional dog groomer and breeder for more than 30 years. She’s owned other businesses in California and Texas, but said she wanted to be in the country and noted she saw the potential in the Glenville business.
The business is also celebrating its 10th anniversary after being established in 2012 by Susanne Anderson, a retired physical therapist from Ft. Lauderdale.
The changes Russell is making to the business range from adding a retail space inside the main business to getting the staff their certification to groom the dogs that are brought by her shop. While not required by law, she said that certification will be good for the employees.
The name of the business is also changing to Dogz Night Inn Resort Spa and Boutique.
Russell’s love for dogs started at a young age, when she said she was obsessed with learning about canines, their breeds, and everything about them.
“I started studying any book I could get my hands on, and all of my book reports were about dogs,” Russell said. “My teachers thought I was nuts. Dogs, dogs, dogs. My dad was like, ‘We have to have a German Shepherd.’ And I was like, ‘I want a poodle.’ We got the German Shepherd, and she was aggressive and horrible.”
Russell was self-taught to groom by watching other handlers groom their animals. She said while they are helpful, to an extent, she was still competing against them growing up.
Her first grooming shop and retail space was Contemporary Canine in Austin, Texas. She was 16 years old at the time, and she said she needed to get her mother’s permission to use her credentials to work in that industry.
Pet Cave, an institution of Austin for a quarter of a century, then went on the market for sale in another suburb of the city. Russell bought it, but it was outdated, and she said the place needed someone who could come in with fresh ideas.
“It was good, and the community was very loyal to it, but it needed somebody with new ideas, or it was going to go,” Russell said. “So, I took Pet Cave, and the rest is history. I continued to show dogs, I ended up selling those businesses, I moved out to California, ran another store in California and turned it around.”
She said she always wanted to own a kennel where she lived on the property and didn’t want something that was already functioning properly because she said it would be hard to make an exit.
“I saw the potential here to really take it to the next level and bring even more into the community than it already could be,” Russell said. “And I saw the potential for retail where there really isn’t any here. There’s nowhere to buy food for your dog or anything. So, that’s basically what we’re going to do here is to try to be much more involved with the community.”
Beyond the retail section of the business, grooming options will be expanded with the shop’s groomer, Sarah Moore, who will be staying with Dogz Night Inn.
“Give me seven months, and I guarantee you, everybody’s going to be happy,” Russell said. “And I get it, you can’t please everybody.”
A new suggestion box has been placed at the front desk, and tours of the facility can be taken between noon and 2 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. The business is open seven days a week, but only by appointment and for pick-ups and drop-offs on Sundays.
She said people can also drop their pets off in case of an emergency. For example, if a family member must go to the hospital, but there’s no one to take care of the dog, the animal can be taken to Russell.
“We will figure out how to go there,” Russell said. “If you know how we can get in and get the dog, and get it into our facility, we’re not worried about the money or getting paid or anything. If we don’t have room in that kennel and somebody has an emergency, I will take the dog to my personal house.”

Life at Jameson Ranch Camp has brought joy to generations of children from Kern County and beyond for over 86 years. Just as the camp may be a summer tradition for many, for the Jameson family it represents a living legacy.
Jameson Ranch Camp has been a part of the Jameson family since 1934. The Jamesons are one of Bakersfield’s pioneer families dating back to the early 1870s. The family patriarch, William T. Jameson, first settled in Kern County in 1874 in Glennville and in 1876 the family moved to Bakersfield. His son, Frank H. Jameson, was the father of Virginia, Roderick, Muriel, Rex, David and Donald.
The camp had humble beginnings. Under the direction of Miss Virginia Jameson, the camp hosted its first group of guests during the summer of 1934. Located on the summit of Greenhorn Mountain, the number of campers was limited to just a dozen children between ages 6–12. Miss Jameson would continue to run the camp until 1938 when her brother Roderick graduated from the University of California, Berkeley. Eventually, Roderick and his wife, Catherine, would take over operations and under their direction the camp would continue to thrive and grow.
In fact, it did not take long for the couple to expand the camp when, in 1941, they purchased 500 acres of land. But this was not just any piece of land as it had historical significance to the family. The land that Jameson Ranch Camp continues to sit upon, according to the June 10, 1966, Bakersfield Californian, “once belonged to Jameson’s grandfather, Henry Bohna, son of Christian Bohna, who built the first house in Bakersfield.”
On June 7, 1942, Jameson Ranch Camp opened its doors to a new (and the current) location 7 miles from Glennville and about 47 miles from Bakersfield. The couple, along with their 3-month-old son, Connor; Mr. Jameson’s mother, Christine; and others helped host the campers at the new site.
While the number of campers continued to grow, so, too, did the variety of activities offered. The most popular was horseback riding, but the children also enjoyed wagon journeys, drawn by two favorite horses named Sage and Jack. They also enjoyed hikes, informal nature study, chores and jobs around the ranch, picnics, cookouts and swimming.
Jameson Ranch Camp added a winter session in 1945. Open to boys in grades first through eighth, the winter camp, which took place during the school term, offered a boarding-school-type ranch program. Activities included horseback riding, caring for the ranch’s animals and winter sports. The Dec. 31, 1949, Californian informed readers that “the winter camp is especially popular for children of working parents and for those who need routine ranch living or extra tutoring.”
Eight decades after welcoming its first guests, Jameson Camp Ranch, now under the direction of Roderick and Catherine’s granddaughter, Erica, along with her parents, Ross and Debby Jameson, and family friend and past camper Caitlin Latta ensure that the family legacy continues to be home for generations of campers to come. ￼
