Trio reunited at McMurry

Kevin Wilson The band is back together, somewhat, and it’s making a Friday swing through Portales. In the closest thing they’ll have to a homecoming, Clovis High guards Jaden Isler and Bryce Hill, and former Wildcat coach J.D. Isler, lead McMurry University in a 7 p.m. Friday neutral site game at Greyhound Arena against Northern […]

Clovis trio set for homecoming

By Kevin Wilson: CNJ staff writer The band is back together, somewhat, and it’s making a Friday swing through Portales.

Revelry at bin Laden death vulgar

I feel somewhat isolated in my disapproval of the recent reaction to the claim of the killing of Osama bin Laden. I was reminded of the jubilant crowds we were shown in the Middle East after the 9/11 terrorists attacks by seeing the eerily similar jubilant crowds in America upon the announcement of bin Laden’s […]

I like the shows about first time home buyers and House Hunters and House Hunters International. I also enjoy watching “Design on a Dime” as Candice Olson takes an outdated and cluttered living area […]

Giving back truly patriotic

By Clyde Davis: CNJ columnist Beneath it all, all the hooplah and ceremony, all the rah rah and fireworks, all the picnics and celebrating, lies a fundamental truth that we cannot afford to lose sight of. America is blessed with freedom. Even the freedom to say that we feel our freedom is threatened is somewhat […]

One spouse is plenty

By Anita Doberman: CNJ Columnist I am Italian and somewhat jealous when it comes to my husband. It runs in our blood. The concept of sharing a husband with other women is completely incomprehensible to me. I’ll often remind my husband that there are still numerous passion murders when a husband is found to have […]
