Note to Letter Writers

We encourage letters to the editor and appreciate those who submit them.

One reminder: Letters should be the original creation of those who write and submit them.

Especially in the digital age, it appears some writers are tempted to cut and paste the work of someone else into a letter to the editor. Please don’t.

It is, of course, fair to quote a short passage and provide clear attribution to it.

We want to feature the original thinking and views of local residents. Writers who submit the work of others as their own may no longer be welcome in this forum.
