Letters to the editor

Say ‘no’ to big box stores
Millers is a great resource to our community. They help out in so
many ways.
They help by delivering food to shut-ins, helping at local funer-
als, employing terrific kids who carry out my groceries and help
keep our downtown vibrant.
Say no to big box stores!

Letters to the editor policy
Unified Newspaper Group is proud to offer a venue for public
debate and welcomes letters to the editor, provided they comply
with our guidelines.
Letters should be no longer than 400 words. They should also
contain contact information – the writer’s full name, address,
and phone number – so that the paper may confirm authorship.
Unsigned or anonymous letters will not be printed under any cir-
cumstances.
The editorial staff of Unified Newspaper Group reserves the
right to edit letters for length, clarity and appropriateness. Letters
with libelous or obscene content will not be printed.
Unified Newspaper Group generally only accepts letters from
writers with ties to our circulation area. Community Voices
Letters to the editor should be of general public interest. Let-

printed. Letters that recount personal experiences, good or bad,
with individual businesses will not be printed unless there is an
