Softball Tournament to Benefit Firefighter Pete Dern

Softball Tournament to Benefit Firefighter Pete Dern

As many of you know, Fresno Firefighter Pete Dern was seriously injured with very serious burns when he fell through a roof while fighting a fire recently.

Doctors say the 25-year Fresno Fire veteran severely burned 65 percent of his body. "He is receiving very powerful intravenous pain and sedation medication but he is following commands and appears to be understanding what we are telling him and will do things when we ask him to do that," said Dr. William Dominic.

“Pete means a lot to the department. He is firefighter's captain. He is a leader among leaders in this department, well-respected, sound mind and judgement," said Chief Kerri Donnis.

101st Clovis Rodeo Grand Marshall's

101st Clovis Rodeo Grand Marshall's

The Clovis Rodeo Association has named three long time Clovis Rodeo volunteers, Jim Call, Orville Hefley and Bob Kennedy as Grand Marshals of the 101st Clovis Rodeo scheduled to take place April 23-26. These long time rodeo association members have worked together for more than 25 years behind the scenes at the west end of the arena making sure fans always have one of the best shows on dirt to watch year after year.

For many, the best part of being a member of the Clovis Rodeo Association is the lifelong friendships you gain along the way. For three Clovis cowboys who met up at the west end of the rodeo arena working the chutes nothing could be truer. They have selflessly given of their time and talents to the community because they love the “Clovis Way of Life” and the Clovis Rodeo.
