Molalla Pioneer Letters to the Editor policy:
The length limit for letters is 300 words. The Pioneer may print letters longer than that at the editor’s discretion, but it reserves the right to edit or not run letters longer than the standard.
Noon on Friday is the deadline for letters to the editor for the following Wednesday’s newspaper, though the Pioneer will try to run letters if they arrive later. Letters are printed as space is available and no submissions are guaranteed publication.
The Letters to the Editor and Guest Columns printed in the Pioneer do not necessarily reflect the opinion or approval of this newspaper.
Submissions that are deemed libelous, obscene or in bad taste will not be printed. Likewise, submissions airing personal grievances against businesses and individuals will not be accepted. Criticism of government and/or public officials is protected by the First Amendment.
For verification, authors must include their full name, street address, daytime telephone and e-mail address. Only the name and town will be printed. No anonymous letters will be printed.
