Letters to the Editor Policies

Lincoln Daily News
welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

-Individuals may submit letters to the LDN editor. Please limit your letter to 250 words or less.

-We accept letters of praise for the community, community leaders, and businesses in Logan County. If your letter to the editor, is challenging or questioning certain practices or policies, please limit your letter to the issues and avoid attacking people.

LDN reserves the right to refuse any letter to the editor for any reason. If accepted, LDN reserves the right to publish your letter according to LDN's timetable.
