Today’s Old Town Friday Night Farmers Market cancelled

We all hear about “doing the right thing.” Sometimes it’s easy to make those decisions and other times not so easy, as we try to consider all the issues at hand. For the first time in 27 years, as the organizer of the Old Town Clovis Farmers Market — the Business Organization of Old Town, also known as BOOT — decided to cancel today’s Farmers Market. Market manager Kirsty Wimbish and I deliberated over the decision most of Wednesday and came to the conclusion it was the right thing to do. Due to extreme heat and poor air quality, and in consideration of the wellbeing of people who participate in the market as well as those who come to the market, it made sense to cancel.

Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of July 25: Izzy

She can take her own selfies! Well, not all by herself, but she did a pretty good job of making sure the camera was angled to capture her beautiful face. This kitty is Izzy, a very soft, densely-coated Domestic Short Hair blend. She’s about 2 years old and makes being a diva look good.

Miss Winkles Pet of the Week of July 18: Lacey

She’s a tall girl and a large pup in general who loves to play, especially with water! With summer bearing down on us all, Lacey is the type of pup we can all enjoy, as she loves to splash and wrestle with her doggie friends in the kiddie pools. Lacey is about 3 years old and is an Anatolian Shepherd blend. She’s got a big, long tongue — the better to kiss you with — and a thick, beautiful white and brown coat that just makes her gorgeous.Her eyes even look like they have black eyeliner, which just adds to her pretty face.
