  • Our people: 'Doing the good Lord's work'

    Grant McGee, The Staff of The News|Updated Feb 17, 2024

    If you see Joe Hedglin around Clovis it's very likely he'll be around the Salvation Army on East Second Street. "I'm doing the good Lord's work," Hedglin said about his volunteer work as he sat on the front porch of his home Tuesday. The News spent some time with Hedglin learning more from this retired ejection seat and motorcycle mechanic. Q: How did you come to be in Clovis? A: The Air Force sent me here in '82, and I just stayed. Q: Tell us about where you were born and...

  • Flu left me home sick with bad TV, just like childhood

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Feb 17, 2024

    Over most of my working life I only had a handful of illnesses that forced me to stay home from work. The last four years I’ve now had the flu three times counting this past week. The first two of those I was properly vaccinated and yet tested positive for the real flu anyway. I gave up on the flu shot and still it nailed me. I’m not sure if it’s the gregariousness of this job or the fact that I’m spending more time in doctors’ offices or what but this stuff is reall...

  • Searching for the 'American' breed of cattle

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Feb 10, 2024

    The conversation started out, “You don’t know me but I’m on sort of a fishing expedition.” I had heard that opening gambit before and I usually relished what was to come. As I get ready to give up my career at the Roosevelt County Chamber of Commerce, those conversations will be one of the things I miss. Anyway, the fellow on the phone told me the object of his fishing trip was to try and locate anyone who might still own cattle of a certain breed called the American...

    Curry County Association of Educational Retirees Today’s program was presented by Margaret Hinchee, director of the Clovis-Carver Public Library. She began with a fact-filled trivia quiz titled “How much do you know about the Clovis-Carver Library?” We found out many of us had forgotten what we knew about our long-standing library. But we quickly became experts. Our library was established in 1911 and has had many upgrades and improvements throughout the years. Hinchee relayed many facts about the library and...

    Grant McGee, The Staff of The News|Updated Feb 3, 2024

The college academic advisor shared what she does know about herself with The News on Monday afternoon. Q: Where were you born? A: Concord, Calif.

  • Privileged to have a Bill Vance original bolo tie

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Feb 3, 2024

    I’m privileged to have a Bill Vance original bolo tie and I’m not certain how I came to possess it. Just for the record, I did not steal it or find it on the street, but the true story of how it came into my possession is a bit foggy. First let me talk about the tie and then I’ll get to the story. Bill Vance was a gentleman who lived in Portales most of his life and I suspect was not a stranger to much of anyone in town. I knew his family because his youngest daughter...

  • Opinion: 'Watch out!' Don't let your stuff own you

    Curtis Shelburne, Correspondent|Updated Jan 30, 2024

    Possessions and proliferation. Two “p” words, each beginning with “p” as in “problem.” For the first to be last and the last to be first — a biblical concept for sure — I begin with “proliferation.” I’m not talking about nuclear proliferation. That is its own “capital P” problem. Suffice it to say that I love the prophet Isaiah’s words about the time when nations will “beat their swords into plowshares” (Isaiah 2). But, sadly, in this fallen wor...

  • Opinion: That time I took Mom to Mexico

    Grant McGee, The Staff of The News|Updated Jan 30, 2024

    Last time I saw my mom was in a dream a few days after she died. I was walking with her to a bus station. “Where are you going?” I asked. “Montreal. I’ve never been,” she said. I got to show my mom around The Great American Southwest, even Mexico, while she was living. My mom came to see me a few times back in the ’90s. In 1992 she flew to Albuquerque from back east. I picked up her luggage and we moseyed on out to the parking lot. We stopped at my pickup truck. “This isn’t yours,” she said, standing back...

  • Our People: Radio personality talks sandwiches, cars

    Grant McGee, The Staff of The News|Updated Jan 27, 2024

"I am also a chicken farmer," Daniel said. After his Wednesday morning radio show he told The News more about his life. Q: What brought you to Portales? A: My family moved here in 2002 when my parents took a job as house parents at the New Mexico Children's Home. I've moved around a lot but I always find myself back here. I...

  • Adrenaline rush has always been my drug

    Karl Terry, Correspondent|Updated Jan 27, 2024

    Last week we held our annual banquet at the Roosevelt County Chamber of Commerce and it marked a milestone for me as it will be my last as the Chamber’s executive director. Many of you probably know that I announced my plans to retire to our board last fall so they could be prepared before my Medicare kicks in this spring and I’m relaxing on Easy Street. Sure, I’ll have to get familiar with where all the soup kitchens are located and maybe check out those senior meals, b...

    Betty Williamson, Correspondent|Updated Jan 27, 2024

    On this last Sunday of January, I invite you to open whatever you use for a calendar and jot down some dates because we have several great eating opportunities — many of them for good causes — heading our way. The first takes place today at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Bovina — their annual German sausage dinner. The church is located at 409 S. Third St. in Bovina, and they’ll be dishing up sausage, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, homemade sauerkraut and...

  • Paw Prints: Windrush Alpaca Ranch offers tips on the perfect livestock

    Madison Willis, The Staff of The News|Updated Jan 27, 2024

    Enamored by their stoic personality and versatility within the ranch, owner of Windrush Alpaca Ranch Rosemary Metcalf said she fell in love with alpacas as soon as she saw them in a farm journal. Metcalf said alpacas are not your everyday livestock, but the adventure in taking care of them is an experience she wouldn’t trade for the world. “The beautiful thing about alpacas is their gentle and very stoic personalities … They’re very low maintenance and I loved the versatility of the alpaca fiber provided,” Metcalf...

  • Biggest lesson from cancer - don't put off dermatologist visit

    Karl Terry, Local columnist|Updated Jan 20, 2024

    This the last in a three-part series tracking my trip through skin cancer. I’m happy to report the squamous cell cancer in the bald patch of my head is now gone. If you’ve been following along here since Christmas you know that after dragging my feet more than I probably should have, I was diagnosed with the skin cancer in early December. I was very fortunate that I was quickly passed off to a second dermatologist in Lubbock who was able to get me in quickly and do the...

  • Our people: 'Believe you can and you're half-way there'

    Grant McGee, The Staff of The News|Updated Jan 20, 2024

    Lauren Rowley believes we live in a great state in New Mexico and believes Clovis has much to offer. "It has given me a lot and I want to give back," Rowley said. Part of that giving back is she has been a Clovis city commissioner for District 2 for the past four years. She told The News more about herself Tuesday. Q: What is your hometown? A: Clovis. I was born and raised here. I went away to Albuquerque for college and came back to start my adult life here. I went to the Uni...
