Letters to the Editor


Tips for getting your letter published:

• Keep your letter brief; the shorter, the better.  Most letters are edited for clarity and length.

One-hundred or fewer words stands

the best chance of being published;

200 words should be your maximum.

• Include your name, address

and daytime phone number. *

We do not publish unsigned letters.

•  We prefer to have letters submitted in typed or electronically transmitted form.

However, we will accept handwritten letters, providing the handwriting is legible.

• Choose your words carefully.

Letters that contain libelous or slanderous

statements will be edited or rejected.

• Do not send us copies of other people’s work.

• Do not write again immediately

after a letter is published.

We won’t consider your next letter

for at least 30 days.

•  We won’t publish political endorsements.

•  We won’t publish obvious organized attempts to flood us with mail on a given topic.

•  We won’t publish form letters, anonymous letters or letters we receive that don’t include an address and phone number.

(We will not publish phone numbers

or addresses - we simply need these for confirmation and clarification purposes.)

Those words from 2016 are haunting me this week. I know what one of the “harder” things is, and this has been the toughest week ever – curl-up-in-a-fetal-position-and-cry-for-days tough.
