  • Keep your letter brief, the shorter the better (150 words should be your maximum; 100 words or fewer stands the best chance of being published).

  • Include your name, address and daytime phone number. (If you don’t include this information, we won’t consider your letter for publication.) Only your name and city will be published.

  • All letters are subject to editing. MOST letters are edited for clarification and length. Even the longest letters you see published have been trimmed.

  • Choose your words carefully. Letters that contain libelous, slanderous or bigoted statements will be edited or rejected.

  • We prefer to have letters submitted in typed or electronically transmitted form. However, we will accept handwritten letters, providing the handwriting is legible. If you are sending handwritten letters by fax, please be sure the writing is dark enough to transmit clearly.

  • Do NOT send your comments as an attachment. Even if the attachment survives our anti-virus software, it may not open in any of our applications.
