What do you think of our new look?

In case you haven’t noticed, our Web site has a new look today.

Changes on the way

Changes are coming to the Clovis News Journal Web site, beginning Monday.

Amanda R. takes a beating

A message from “Terminator Brilliant” appears on The Bachelor TV show’s Web site suggesting Clovis-born Amanda R. will not be a winner:

Get well, Jaden

This week’s player of the week, for posting a comment on our Web site that reflects the views of many, is “Clovissite.”

Nice play, ‘Allshookup’

This week’s player of the week award — for a Web site comment that we suspect summarizes the views of most Clovis High sports fans — goes to “Allshookup.” The topic was a nail-biting state-championship basketball game.

Mike Higgins, who writes a regional sports blog for our Web site, has e-mailed with an answer to a reader’s question about Clovis basketball legend Bubba Jennings.

The player of the week, honored for leaving a Web site comment that enlightens, inspires or just captures our interest, goes to … … Cloviscraig, a regular contributor. We liked his thoughts related to the 2007 homicide of Emmett Salisbury, who officials said may have been killed because of alleged ties to illegal drugs. “If […]

Player of the week: Peloton

Each Monday, Editors’ Notebook selects a player of the week to honor the author of a Web site comment that strikes us as particularly witty, insightful or eye opening.

Sorry ’bout the tech difficulties

Yes, we know the Web site has been acting odd most of the day. We’re adding some new features and it looks like we’ll have some glitches to work through. We hope to have everything back to normal before Monday. • • • Rio Rancho pulled away for a 39-30 win over Clovis in a […]

San Jon church turns 100

The First Baptist Church of San Jon will be celebrating its 100th anniversary on June 1. A fellowship coffee will be served at the church at 9 a.m. that day, followed by a worship service at 10. The San Jon Community Center will host lunch at noon. • • • The New Mexico Environment Department […]

Lkvron has been banned

We’ve never banned anyone from commenting on our Web site stories, until Thursday. Comments from lkvron have been deleted and the user’s e-mail address has been blocked from future participation. I’m still trying to sort through the details, but a man called Thursday and said his e-mail address was being used for the comments and […]
