Clovis Civic Center has new general manager
The Clovis Civic Center has a new general manger, according to a Global Spectrum news release.

Neely was hired as the center’s operations manager in 2006.
Layoffs won't affect local Sprint retailer
The Clovis extension of Sprint Nextel Corp. apparently won’t be affected by the telecommunication giant’s announcement it is eliminating about 8,000 jobs nationally.
Brenda Bollinger, manager of the Sprint Store Express in Clovis, said Monday the job cuts will not affect her staff.
Bollinger said the Clovis store won’t be affected because it is owned by a third party, W. Tex PCS, which contracts with Sprint.
Sprint said layoffs for thousands of employees were necessary to cut annual costs by $1.2 billion.
The nation’s third-largest wireless provider said it will complete the layoffs largely by March 31. About 850 of the reductions are voluntary and the company said it expected a charge of more than $300 million for severance and other costs.
