Freedom of speech is freedom from prosecution for voicing our opinions and beliefs or for support of our position in civil cases.

Letters to the editor: Disagreeing doesn’t mean racism

Disagreeing doesn't mean racism The present situation in Clovis is indicative of a much larger problem in our country.

Letters to the editor: Lansford’s leadership skills proven
