Letters to the Editor Policy


We always welcome - even encourage - letters to the editor. A community newspaper is dependant on interaction with the community and its residents. However, in order to be published, there are several rules that must be followed.


Rule #1 - It must be signed! A typewritten copy of your name doesn't qualify. Anyone can type your name. Only you can sign it. No letter - no matter what it contains, will be considered without your written signature. Also if your letter is postal mailed or e-mailed and not signed in our presence, please include your phone number for verification. This is for your protection as well as ours.

If you have submitted a letter for publication and it was not published, please feel free to call our office for clarification. (618-635-2000)


We are always happy to hear from our readers, either by letter or by phone. If you wish to inform us of a situation or just have a question, you are welcome to write and stipulate that the letter is not for publication. In that case, your anonymity would always be protected.
