If you want to go and enjoy the holidays in a special way, head over to the Clovis Festival of Lights. Also known as Santa Claus Lane, they are a self-proclaimed largest residential animated light show in the world according to KMPH. The idea for the event started in 2007 when Terry and Deb Toews wanted to do more for Christmas. They added a few more lights every year, then in 2012 they connected their next-door neighbor's house lights and displayed their homes together. In 2015 they had a meeting and connected 16 houses with lights and music. 2015 was the year the names Clovis Festival of Lights and Santa Claus Lane were given to the neighborhood.

In a world filled with electronics, the internet has become an integral part of society. It is a key service that many people rely on for work, recreation and communication. This is one of the reasons why the Federal Commission Communication, or FCC, has set regulations on the internet, to protect it from monopolies and unfair use. However, this may change thanks to new legislation introduced by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai that would revoke these regulations commonly known as the Net Neutrality laws. This has caused an outcry amongst many who believe that the removal of such laws would cause infringement upon the rights of American citizens. This is due to the nature of these laws. The Net Neutrality laws are a piece of legislation that makes it illegal for internet service providers or ISPs to prioritize or slow internet connections to certain sites. This ensures that the internet is an even playing field and nobody gets preferential treatment.
