REMINDER regarding Campaign Letters to the Editor to be published in the Pine Journal:
This week's paper will be the last issue where we publish letters to the editor endorsing a particular candidate for the primary election. Letters should be submitted by 5 p.m. today (Tuesday, July 31). While we prefer they send letters by email (email@example.com), it's fine to bring them in to the office, or fax to 218-879-2018. Letters should be fewer than 300 words and signed with first and last name, city of residence and a phone number so we can verify they wrote the letter or call to clarify anything we might find confusing.
It's been a long-time policy at the Pine Journal (and most other newspapers) not to publish endorsement letters in the issue immediately before an election, because it doesn't allow time for corrections.
Thank you! ~ Pine Journal Staff
