The News Courier in Athens, Alabama

Letters to the Editor

Letters to the Editor 3/2/14

(Continued)

(Editor’s Note: The letter to the editor of Feb. 23 was run that length because it was deemed to be a positive story about the city, where a visitor was shown hospitality from Athens in a wonderful way.  The News Courier is not preventing concerns from anyone wanting to express their opinions on any issue. The word count was reduced to 200 words from “the usual 400 words” to allow more letters from writers with a clear, succinct message.  We have since increased the word count to 250 words. At the beginning of the year, The News Courier added three conservative and two liberal columnists as well as one conservative, one liberal and one independent cartoonist.)
