Letters Policy:

The Northern Light welcomes letters to the editor.

For verification purposes, please include your name, address and daytime telephone number. Letters are limited to 350 words and may be edited or rejected for reasons of legality, length and good taste. Thank you letters are limited to five individuals or groups.

A fresh viewpoint on matters of general interest to local readers will increase the likelihood of publication. Writers should avoid personal invective. Letters that discuss the operation of an individual business, in either a negative or positive light, will not be published. Unsigned letters will also not be accepted for publication.

Requests for withholding names will be considered on an individual basis. Only one letter per month from an individual correspondent will be published.

Submit a letter to the editor.
