Antigo Times to begin accepting letters to the editor
From the Editor
The Antigo Times will be accepting letters to the editor for the first time starting next week. With impending decisions to be made by the school board, city council, and county board as well as election-oriented opinions and facts, we would love to hear what the community has to say about the important issues that face all of us in Langlade County.
With that, there are a few guidelines for submissions. Letters should be approximately 500 words or less and written in a manner that is not libelous or vulgar in any way. Submissions should convey a coherent opinion on a local matter concerning the readership area – letters from outside that area will not be accepted.
Letters will be printed in a timely manner. The Antigo Times’ deadline for the next issue’s print (delivered that coming Monday) is Thursday at noon, however letters must be submitted by no later than Wednesday at 12 p.m. for the upcoming edition. All accepted and approved letters will also be posted digitally on our website – antigotimes.com – in a timely fashion as well.
Letters must also be signed by the original author. The writer’s name, address, and phone number must also be provided even though the address and phone number will not be printed. Political letters intended to procure votes are constituted as advertising and should be handled by the candidate or party appropriately as such.
The Antigo Times has the right to shorten, edit, or refuse any submission to the editor. We hope to hear from you soon and we appreciate both your readership and concern for our community. Please submit letters either to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed c/o EDITOR, Antigo Times, 616 Fifth Avenue, Antigo, WI, 54409.
