Our Community News welcomes letters to the editor on topics of general interest to readers in the Tri-Lakes area. We do not knowingly print letters that are substantially the same as letters that have been submitted to other publications. To ensure that OCN contains a variety of viewpoints, each letter writer is limited to a maximum of six letters within any twelve month period. To submit a letter, please:

  • Identify your submission as a letter to the editor and confirm that it has not been submitted to any other publication.

  • Include a suggested headline or title.

  • Limit letters to no more than 300 words.

  • Include your full name, home address, day and evening phone numbers, and email address, if you have one.

  • Email your letter to editor@ocn.me or mail it to
    Our Community News
    P.O. Box 1742
    Monument, CO 80132-1742.

  • Send your letter at least 10 days before the “first Saturday of the month” when the paper is printed.

  • If you are not at least 18 years old or an emancipated minor, provide a written statement from a parent or legal guardian that you have permission to submit the letter.

  • To ensure that OCN contains a variety of viewpoints, each letter writer is limited to a maximum of one (1) letter to the editor per issue and six (6) letters to the editor within twelve months.

If, after two business days from the date of your submission, you have not received an acknowledgement of your letter, please call Lisa Hatfield, Managing Editor, at (719) 339-7831. Letters may be edited for length, grammar, and accuracy.

Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in letters to our community should not be interpreted as the view of OCN even when the letter writer is a reporter for OCN
