1962: The Clovis News-Journal published its opinion-page philosophies:
“We believe that all men are equally endowed by their Creator, and not by any government, with the gift of freedom, and that it is every man’s duty to God to preserve his own liberty and respect the liberty of others. Freedom is self-control, no more, no less.
“To discharge this responsibility, free men, to the best of their ability, must understand and apply to daily living the great moral guides expressed in the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule and the Declaration of Independence.
“This newspaper is dedicated to furnishing information to our readers so that they can better promote and preserve their own freedom and encourage others to see its blessings. For only when man understands Freedom and is free to control himself and all he produces can he develop to his utmost capabilities in harmony with the above moral principles.”
