Support for Agriculture Kicks into High Gear with New License Plate

California drivers now have a way to show their support for one of our state's largest job creators: agriculture.

Fees raised from the license plate sales will benefit:

  • Agricultural Education
  • Agricultural Career Awareness
  • Agricultural Career Training
  • Youth Leadership Development

The deadline to sign up is April 6.

Clovis Teacher Accused Of Molestation Is Fired

Clovis Teacher Accused Of Molestation Is Fired

A Clovis teacher accused of molesting one of his students is no longer a Clovis Unified employee.

Officers arrested 44-year-old Neng Yang back in January. He faces state and federal charges for child molestation and pornography.

Yang taught second grade at Freedom Elementary in Clovis. Investigators say he abused a student in his classroom between December 8, 2011 and January 26, 2012.

When he was arrested, the Clovis Unified Board suspended him, and by law he had 30 days to appeal. He did not.

On Monday, the Clovis Unified Board met in a closed-door meeting and officially fired Yang.
