Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of April 24: Kami

She’s exuberant at times, jubilant other times, and downright funny too. Kami shows off her athleticism and goofy side to us on a daily basis, with her tendencies to splash in her special water tub — yes, it’s just for her — or her ability to run and wrestle with her buddies. She makes the best faces when she plays.

Clovis senior in the spotlight: Amy Hance

I was born in East Lansing, Michigan, where my dad worked in the dairy program at Michigan State University and my mother was a nurse. I have an older sister and a younger brother. Just before my 13th birthday, my family moved from Michigan to Clovis. It was quite a change for our family. The weather, the culture and the lifestyle were very different — all in the best way. I started eighth grade at Clark Intermediate and immediately felt comfortable with the open campus and laid-back atmosphere. Everyone was so nice and friendly.

Serving Clovis Unified has been an honor and my greater pleasure

Last Monday I announced my decision to retire from my role as Superintendent of the Clovis Unified School District at the conclusion of my current employment contract, June 30. While I absolutely love this District and its people, after a tremendous amount of thought and self-reflection, I have determined it is time to draw closure to my career with Clovis Unified after 38-plus years of service. I will retire holding the utmost admiration for our educational team, our students and our community.

Shiva is our raven-haired beauty. She has a long and gloriously soft coat, great golden eyes, and a loving personality to share with a new family. Shiva is an indoor kind of gal, but she does love to sunbathe in the windows and observe the world from her favorite perch in her catio.

Clovis Senior in the Spotlight: Lea Minyard

I was born LeaEllen Ramsey (pronounced Lee) no middle name, dropped Ellen in high school and just went by Lea. I was born on March 23, 1953 in San Diego at Balboa Naval Hospital. My mother, Leatha Warren, was born in Farmer City, Illinois. She met my stepdad Joseph Ramsey in San Diego during Fleet Week, while she was waitressing at a coffee shop. My stepdad was in the Navy; he served aboard submarines. As a military family, we traveled all over the United States from one military base to another in the back of a camper shell on a Ford pickup when seatbelts were not required. We settled in Pensacola, Florida, where I call home.

It seems that some had an early start this year and have already had their first round of kittens, making the need for knowledge about this “season” even more relevant.
