Laws don’t put end to problems

It seems a certain violent Arizona resident would have done well to have read my column last week. The message that right and wrong are universal rather than subjective is something he apparently needed. Of course, he may not have understood. If he is simply willing to commit evil acts without regard to right or […]

Letter to the editor: City plans disservice to seniors

City plans disservice to seniors I am concerned about the city of Clovis possibly buying the Chaparral Country Club for $3 million and tearing down the well-maintained municipal golf course to make way for more soccer fields. I understand the golf course was developed in the early 1930s. It seems a shame to destroy it […]

Extending tax cuts for all best course of action

Freedom Newspapers What came over U.S. Rep. John Boehner of Ohio? The House minority leader suggested a compromise with Democrats on taxes. Within a matter of seconds, it seemed, the knives were out. His own party ripped him, and the White House fell back on that tired political clich

CLGA appreciates Clovis muni course

Please allow me this opportunity to congratulate the Clovis Ladies Golf Association for providing another wonderful year of golfing for the ladies of Clovis. By providing lessons, the members of the association have introduced many women to the game and many others have been given the opportunity to improve their skills. The CLGA recently hosted […]

When I read Mike Majors’ letter to the editor — “Time to do away with golf course” — in last Thursday’s paper, I was appalled. He said the Clovis Municipal Golf Course is a “ghetto golf course.” When I hear the word ghetto, I immediately think of slums, dilapidated houses, and completely run-down property, not […]

Letters to the editor: Time to do away with golf course

Time to do away with golf course Despite being one of the most passionate golfers in Clovis, I am in favor of doing away with our Clovis Municipal Golf Course. It is obviously losing money that our city government needs. There is no way it could be making money; if it is, the city is […]

Allison’s music motivating

Tibor Machan Of course, I am just a fan of Mose Allison, he’s not really my main hero but now and then I get enthusiastic about his work and nearly idolize him. Mose Allison is a jazz pianist, composer and perhaps the coolest cat on the jazz and blues scene. I’ve had the good fortune […]

Loss of leaders leaves void to be filled

Freedom New Mexico This decade brought the loss of four iconic friends of liberty whose ideas helped change the course of history. We will certainly miss President Ronald Reagan, William F. Buckley Jr. and Milton and Rose Friedman. Few American presidents have demonstrated the principled discipline of Ronald Reagan. His political career started in California […]

Going green starts with personal change

By Clyde Davis: Local columnist I suppose the problem addressed in this column is like other common questions, in that the answer lies, not in knowing, but in doing. We know that, if we do not develop alternative energies, our modes of transportation will radically alter when fossil fuel runs out. We know that we […]
