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 con-
tain contact information the writers full name, address, and phone
number so that the paper may confirm authorship. Unsigned or anon-
ymous letters will not be printed under any circumstances.
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 writ-
ers with ties to our circulation area.
Letters to the editor should be of general public interest. Letters
that are strictly personal lost pets, for example will not be printed.
Letters that recount personal experiences, good or bad, with individu-
al businesses will not be printed unless there is an overwhelming and
compelling public interest to do so. Letters that urge readers to patron-
ize specific businesses or specific religious faiths will not be printed,
either. Thank-you letters can be printed under limited circumstances,
provided they do not contain material that should instead be placed as
an advertisement and reflect public, rather than promotional interests.
Unified Newspaper Group encourages lively public debate on issues,
but it reserves the right to limit the number of exchanges between indi-
vidual letter writers to ensure all writers have a chance to have their
voices heard.
This policy will be printed from time to time in an abbreviated form
here and will be posted in its entirety on our websites.

Spill: Hazardous material mostly contained to truck, none found in roadway


Continued from page 1

Linzmeier did not identify.


The driver parked the truck
in the parking lot of Wisco
Industries and reported the
spill to the fire department.
Linzmeier told the
Observer because of expo-
sure to the material, the
driver was sent to hospital
for further health inspec-
tion.
Linzmeier said the spill
was mostly contained to the
truck, with no spill found
on the roadway, though the
initial investigation also
found another leaking spot
in the loading area of the
building. Firefighters evac-
uated the building, blocked
the parking lot and closed
the nearby street while
working on absorbing the
leaking material.
According to a news
release from Wisco Indus-
tries, the chemical was not
being delivered to Wis-
co and is not used by the
company. After the chem-
ical was neutralized, the
employees re-entered the
building at 2:10p.m.
Linzmeier said the street
closure was just a precau-
tion, as the top priority was
to make sure the public was
safe.
Theres no environmen-
tal hazard, Linzmeier said.
Nothing to worry about for
the community.
