Letter to the Editor
The Jacksboro Herald-Gazette offers local readers an opportunity to share their opinions on community topics and issues of public importance. Mail or deliver letters to the office at 212 N. Church Street in Jacksboro, or e-mail letters to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is 5 p.m. Friday for the midweek edition. Letters that do not meet the deadline will not be printed in the paper.
Letters must be submitted by the author/signee, and not by a third-party on behalf of the author/signee. Letters must contain the author’s first name, last name, complete address, and telephone number. Only the writer’s name and title of the letter, as appropriate, will be published with the letter. Names cannot be withheld.
Letters from any candidate who is actively running for any political office will not be published.
Writers may submit letters of up to 500 words. Letters are not guaranteed to be published in the next edition, but every effort to do so will be made.
Unverified letters and letters containing personal attacks the newspaper deems to be of a libelous nature will not be published. In any event, the newspaper reserves the sole discretion to decide whether or not a reader submission will be published.
All letters and columns featured on the Opinion Page are the views of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Jacksboro Herald-Gazette.
