WRITE TO US
Letters should not exceed We prefer letters about local issues. Open letters and poetry are seldom used. We discourage personal attacks; try to advance the debate. All correspondence to the editor is assumed to be for publication (unless marked otherwise). The editor reserves the right to abridge or withhold any correspondence without explanation. Letters may be edited for sense, paper’s style, brevity, good taste and to protect the rights and reputations of individuals and groups. Opinions expressed must be genuinely held by the letter writer. Letters may be referred to others for right of reply before publication.
