Friday morning briefing: Fair warning, fair days and learn to surf

Good Friday morning. The weekend is upon us and it’s time for the morning briefing.

Fair warning

From 10:30 p.m. Saturday to 2:30 a.m. Sunday Clovis Police will be conducting a DWI check point within the city.

Officers will be targeting drunk and drug-impaired drivers.

Roosevelt County Fair

Today and Saturday are the last days to take in the Roosevelt County Fair.

The annual festivities are open all day at the fairgrounds in Portales. Just look for lots of amusement rides.

Learn to surf

Confused trying to surf the Internet?

Fast Forward New Mexico is 10 a.m. Saturday at the Clovis-Carver Library. Free computer and Internet training.


Kitchen tip

Cleaning your grater after shredding cheese can be made easy by grating a raw potato after the cheese. The potato clears the gummy cheese out of the holes.

Today in history

On this day in 1939, the first televised Major League baseball game is broadcast on station W2XBS, the station that was to become WNBC-TV.

Announcer Red Barber called the game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Here’s the rest of the story:


Today — Mostly sunny, with a high near 96. Calm wind becoming south around 5 mph.

Tonight — Partly cloudy, with a low around 68. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west.
