This is in reply to Hector Torres’ views (letter Feb. 8) on “The Clovis Way of Life.”
We moved to Clovis because of its outstanding school district (as many people do.) When I entered a retail establishment in downtown Clovis for the first time, the owner said she had to run across the street for something and to make myself at home (I was the only one in the store.)
Wow, I thought, these people are very nice and trusting. I had to call the police, once, for a neighbor and they were at her doorstep in two minutes flat.
I like the diversity in the schools and where everyone is held accountable to the same rules. I like the way that they taught my children to compete for things. My children would show up for competitions feeling confident that they would do well, because that was instilled in them.
For those who don’t agree with the Clovis Unified School District dress code or the “Clovis Way of Life,” I might suggest moving a few miles down the street to a school district and city that encompasses more of your values. Clovis is not perfect … but it reflects my values.
