Chandler assumptions unfounded Regarding Sunday’s letter from Amber Workheiser referencing differences between the two candidates for Curry County commissioner in District 5: I appreciate that her candidate, Paul Barnes, has some good experience, and has an excellent reputation. I do not, however, appreciate her remarks about his opponent, Caleb Chandler. Caleb has served in local […]

Changes could prove disastrous According to Barack Obama’s new plan for the economy, we will have free health care. We will all get free college tuition. We will spend billions to repair the infrastructure of the nation. We will give billions to the automobile companies, state governments and the banks. We will provide jobs for […]

Bonds to benefit higher education We’re urging voters support Clovis Community College and Eastern New Mexico University in the Nov. 4 general election. General Obligation Bond D has $12 million for Eastern New Mexico University and Bond C has $4 million for Clovis Community College. The cost to property owners for both bonds combined is […]

Letters to the Editor: Malkin made me an Obama voter

Regarding last Sunday’s Michelle Malkin column (“Team Obama tactics ‘in your face’”): The article was uninformed fear mongering. It portrayed anyone who sports a sign supporting Obama as being confrontational. I have never had a problem of the type that was so graphically spelled out in this article. Malkin has accomplished something with this article […]

Local gas prices call for inquest We need a state official to look into gas prices in Clovis. I was in Lubbock on Aug. 25 and bought gas for $3.43 a gallon. I came back to Clovis and it was still $3.79. Why? Clovis people are being gouged by a very few who control the […]

Who’s really in charge of our jail? Clovis has finally done it — made national news for all the wrong reasons. I’m sure many Clovis residents are asking the same questions: • How can eight inmates escape through a roof without detention center officers noticing? • How is it that a convicted murderer can still […]

Pair of letters show Clovis history

By Don McAlavy: CNJ Columnist This columnist, Don McAlavy, has two letters that Norvell G. Tate and W.H. “Bill” Duckworth wrote to each other in 1934. The first letter was from N.G. Tate of Albuquerque, June 25, 1934. “Mr. W. H. Duckworth, Clovis, New Mexico. Dear Sir; I am attempting a thesis for a master’s […]

Problems stem from ingnorance Once again the fine people of Clovis are in the midst of another stupid debate — the best way to kill animals (“Dogged dilemma,” Sunday’s CNJ). As unpleasant as the whole killing process is, it is an unfortunate reality. I mean where do all the hundreds and hundreds of litters go […]

Dog owners must be accountable All this press about animal euthanasia is sad (Sunday’s CNJ). I’ve lived in many parts of the country and I’ve never witnessed such a disrespect for animals as I have in Clovis. The owners are the real problem here, ranging from abusers to the poor and the just plain ignorant.

Use of money individual’s choice Just when I think I’ve heard all the nanny state liberal gibberish there is to hear, I read the letter from Gene Bundy in the June 29 CNJ regarding the recent tax rebate. (“Instead of spending try donating”) These people are never satisfied to mind their own business and do […]

Instead of spending try donating Have you received a rebate check? Are you wondering what to do with it?

Letters to the Editor: Nothing can change annual now

Editor’s note: These letters have been edited for space considerations. They reference photos of gay couples in the Clovis High School yearbook. I for one am ready to stop talking about this whole Clovis High School yearbook controversy. The yearbook has already been published, paid for, delivered to the students and there is nothing more […]

Letters to the Editor: Religious beliefs at heart of issue

Editor’s note: All of these letters have been edited for space considerations. They reference photos of gay couples in the Clovis High School yearbook. Injustice done to those depicted My emotions are doubtless founded in my Christian roots. But Scriptural argument is meaningless to those who do not accept the Holy Bible as the infallible […]

Editor’s note: Most of these letters have been edited for space considerations. They reference photos of gay couples in the Clovis High School yearbook. More letters are scheduled for publication on Sunday. Couples don’t belong in school yearbook I have been observing the “couples in the yearbook”

Letters to the Editor: School annual debate continues

By having gay couples in this year’s Clovis High School yearbook I believe yearbook staff members Jessie Hardison and Maggie Chavez have tried to bring the city of Clovis into the 21st Century. The fact that some residents and business owners are threatening to pull advertising and support for the schools shows just how behind […]
