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 one (1) letter to the editor per issue and six (6) letters within a twelve (12) month period. To submit a letter, please:

  • Email your letter, preferably as an attached Microsoft Word document, to editor@ocn.me or mail a copy to
    Our Community News,
    P.O. Box 1742,
    Monument, CO 80132-1742
    .

  • 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 that summarizes the topic you are addressing.

  • Limit letters to no more than 300 words.

  • Include your full name, home address, phone numbers, and email address, if you have one. Only your name will be published.

  • Send your letter at least 14 days before the “first Saturday of the month” when the paper is published. Later submissions may be deferred to our next monthly issue.

If you have not received an acknowledgement two days after your email submission or one week after you mailed your letter, please contact Lisa Hatfield, Managing Editor, at (719) 339-7831 or editor@ocn.me . At OCN’s sole discretion, letters may be edited for grammar and we may ask you for clarification of your statements. Include references, such as website links, in your letter for any facts and figures you cite. Letters containing personal attacks will not be published.

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
