As with any newspaper, we retain the right to edit your letter for spelling, grammar, and punctuation.  We also reserve the right to shorten letters that are too long or delete material that could be considered libelous, obscene, or otherwise unsuitable for a family newspaper.

All letters must be written or typed on one side of a piece of paper, not to exceed 500 words.   A letter must be signed by the person writing the letter and must include the person’s mailing address and phone number.  Letters brought into the office and given to the staff or sent by e-mail, must include the same information.  All letters printed will include the name of the person writing the letter.  Letters regarding political candidates or issues will not be printed free of charge within one month of an election.

When Letters to the Editor are received with the appropriate information included on them, they are usually printed.  It would be a rare occasion that a "Letter to the Editor" would not be printed.  It is this newspaper's desire to provide an open forum for the opinions, views and interests of its readers.
