We've recently discovered a number of letters, some several weeks old, that were overlooked in our computer system. Some of these are outdated. We suspect other letters may have been automatically deleted from the system because of their age.

So we are issuing both an apology and an invitation: If you sent a letter to the editor to us before July 1 that has not been published, and you feel it is still relevant, please resubmit it directly to me at richardh@lodinews.com, via fax to 369-6706, or drop it off at the front counter of the newsroom at 125 N. Church St. (Please keep in mind our limit of 350 words per letter.)

We understand the great care writers take in preparing their letters and we are taking steps to make sure such backlogs will be avoided in the future.

Again, our apologies for this inconvenience.


Richard Hanner
