Letters to the Editor:
The Angler encourages letters to the editor from readers. Letters may be edited to correct grammar and spelling problems or to eliminate libelous statements. Letters should be no more than 250 words. If a letter exceeds the word limit, the editor may either print it as written or return it to the writer for editing down to 250 words. Newspaper staff members will not edit a letter to make it fit length requirements. Letters to the editor must be signed and include contact details so the writer can be reached for verification. Unsigned letters and those where authorship cannot be verified will not be printed. Anonymous letters will not be published. The editor reserves the right of refuse to print a letter which is libelous, commercial, proselytizing or in poor taste, as determined by the editor.
