From the editors: About your nonlocal letters

Keeping in mind our paper’s motto—“Local Matters”—our Letters section has always given first priority to letters about local issues or regarding stories we have published. As a result, when we don’t have enough print space for all the week’s letters, those written about national or international issues get cut, and are held over in the hopes of space opening up in a future issue.

Unfortunately, we’ve found that these letters often get set aside, lose their timeliness, and never get published.

While we cannot devote more print space to accommodate these letters, we can post them online at in a timely fashion. Accordingly, this is what we’ll do: When there is space, we will attempt to publish nonlocal letters in print; when there is no space, you can find them online for that week.

Please keep in mind that the deadline for all letters will continue to be the Wednesday before our next print publication. Thanks—and keep ‘em coming!
