The Eastern New Mexico News - Serving Clovis, Portales and the Surrounding Communities

By PNT staff 

Local columnist honored


Local columnist and Eastern New Mexico University Media Relations Director Wendel Sloan won first place in New Mexico in a national competition for his opinion columns.

The National Federation of Press Women recognized Sloan for his columns in the Portales News-Tribune and the Clovis News Journal on Sundays.

Two of his columns will advance to the next stage of the national competition at the National Federation of Press Women Conven-tion in Scottsdale, Ariz., between Sept. 20-22.

One column was about how the birther issue about President Barack Obama's citizenship should join Osama bin Laden on the ocean floor, and the other about alcoholism not being a moral failing as insinuated by a postcard sent out by a local church opposing Sunday alcohol sales at Portales restaurants.
