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We do not publish unsigned letters.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.)

“How are you doing today?”

I get asked this question a lot. I usually give a polite smile and say something along the lines of “We have good days and bad days.”
