Law officers deserve better pay
Many jobs come with stress.
Sometimes these jobs cause severe family problems, alcoholism, drug problems, divorces, and abuses of all kinds.
One of our most stressful jobs is that of law officer — a job with few thank-yous that produces old men and women before their time.
Most citizens wouldn’t last a day in this job.
How do we find and retain people to do this job?
A 20-year retirement plan, better pay and a better understanding of our police force by the citizens and the community. That’s a good start in the right direction. Maybe then we could have a better and safer community for all of us to live in.
Residents should take action to lower gas prices
I would like to take a moment to inform Clovis citizens about gas prices in surrounding areas.
There is often a 20- to 30-cent difference between prices in Clovis and prices in Farwell and Texico. Gas prices in Amarillo are sometimes 40 cents per gallon cheaper than Clovis.
This is outrageous.
No one should purchase gas in Clovis until someone decides to lower prices to those of surrounding areas.
If the citizens of Clovis feel as I do, they may contact the attorney general’s office at 505-827-6000 or 505-827-6646.
The more people who call, the better the chance we can have gas-price regulations.
