The newspaper welcomes brief letters (generally no longer than 400 words) that express an opinion on a currently newsworthy topic. The writer’s contact information must be included for verification. Letters that contain defamatory comments, open letters, third-party letters, letters sent to more than one publication, and letters that would more appropriately be advertisements, including Cards of Thanks, are unlikely to be published. One letter generally is allowed per writer per calendar month.

A response

To the editor:

A short response is needed for Harry Bennett’s recent letter. What planet is he from? It is obvious it’s not the one we live on.

I am sure that Klassen Farms and Todd Heitschmidt are net givers to our society, while Harry Bennett is a net receiver.
