Letters must not include Web addresses or material pulled from another source without attribution. Letters must be addressed to the editor and not to another person or group. Letters also must not include personal attacks or hate language. We only accept letters from readers in the Northern Shenandoah Valley, or those letters that bring up issues specific to our area.

Readers may submit one letter per week, but there is no guarantee that every letter submitted will be published. We do not accept anonymous letters. You must include your address and phone number with your letter, but only your name and hometown will be published.
