Letters to the editors of the local newspapers are very effective. Letters may be edited for content, brevity, good taste and libel. Letters should be typewritten and include the writer's daytime telephone number and address for verification, if necessary. Address and phone numbers are kept confidential. Letters must be received before 9 AM Monday for consideration in that week's paper.
