Our weekly newspapers welcome letters from readers.

We reserve the right to condense letters because of space limitations and to correct errors of fact, spelling, grammar and punctuation.

We only publish original letters addressed to us. During election periods, no letters will be published concerning the campaigns of candidates running for office. Letters pertaining to election issues will not be published in the issue preceding the election.

To ensure a diversity of opinion, writers are limited to one published letter every 30 days.

Please keep letters to about 300 words. Include your name, phone number and email, along with residence for verification purposes only.
