The Elizabethton Star encourages readers to express their opinions on key local issues.
In order to ensure fairness and accuracy in all material published in our newspapers, the Star has set the following guidelines for letters or opinion submissions:
Letters must be 300 words or fewer.
Letters only have one author.
Letter writers must submit their name, address and phone number for confirmation. Only the city of residence and name will be published.
Letters may endorse a candidate, issue or person, but letter writers may not make personal attacks on other people, businesses, etc.
All assertions made in letters built on opinions and any factual statements must be easily verifiable.
All letters are subject to editing for length, clarity, spelling, grammar and AP style.
Form letters will not be published.
No more than two submissions by one author will be published each month.
