In the late 19th century, a member of parliament went to Scotland to make a speech. En route, his carriage became stuck in the mud. A Scottish farm-boy came to the rescue with a team of horses that pulled the carriage loose. Awed by the great man, the boy would accept nothing in return for helping him out. The grateful statesman asked, “Is there nothing you want to be when you grow up?”

Wow, the paper has been so full the past several weeks, that Scoop was left out. Hopefully we will have space for it this week.

 

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We do not publish unsigned letters.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.)
