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 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 your letter to no more than 300 words including your suggested headline and closing.

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

  • Submit your letter so we receive it no later than midnight, Friday, two weeks prior to the publication date.

If you have not received an acknowledgement two days after your email submission or one week after you mailed your letter, please contact John Heiser, Publisher, at (719) 488-3455 or johnheiser@ocn.me . At OCNís sole discretion, 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. OCN does not guarantee every letter will appear in print or on-line and does not guarantee a publication date. Depending on the space available, the number of letters printed in an issue may be limited to the first 12 received. Letters containing personal attacks or endorsements for or complaints about individually-named commercial products or services will not be published.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
