Commentaries not always needed

By Glenda Price: CNJ columnist We country girls don’t often get a chance to go to the beauty shop, or any other of those places that provide personal nice looks (and smells) assistance. Awhile back I finally got tired of looking like a homeless hag, and went to one of those joints. They cut and […]

May 3 Letters to the Editor

Main Street businesses needed I was glad to see the plans for the Hotel Clovis. (“Hotel proposal raises hopes,” Sunday’s CNJ). Perhaps if it contains apartment dwellers it will attract some necessary businesses to “Historic Main Street” that residents can patronize. One of the problems with “Historic Main Street” projects is

Boundaries needed for true freedom

By Judy Brandon: CNJ religion columnist Think about it: daytime talk shows can be really offensive. The very strange and weird is more the ordinary or normal on these shows.

Perspective needed on economy

By Tibor Machan: FNM columnist As one who tasted a bit of Nazism and communism, today’s economic fiasco strikes me as relatively mild as human disasters go.

Adequate medical program needed

By Anita Doberman: CNJ Columnist I wish that I had something good to say about my experience with Tricare and military medicine, but today I don’t.

Full tank not needed for fun

By Clyde Davis: Local columnist School has been out — the Clovis public schools, that is — for two entire weeks. Two weeks doesn’t seem like a long time, unless you are trying to find ways to entertain children already showing signs of restlessness.

Clovis welcomes much needed rain

By Kevin Wilson: CNJ staff writer It wasn’t much more than a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things, but Wednesday morning’s rain was a welcome sight for agriculture producers.
