A reminder to readers about the Public Opinion’s letter policy 


The Public Opinion welcomes written opinions about local issues of interest.  Letters to the Editor may be sent via email to the Editor at kate.klimesh@driftlessjournal.com, or copies dropped off to 110 Washington Street, Suite 4, or mailed to Driftless Multimedia P.O. Box 350, Decorah, IA  52101. 

Each letter must be typed or legibly hand-written, signed and include an address and phone number for verification. Letters should not exceed 300 words and may be edited for clarity, length, style, and space limitations. 

The Public Opinion will only publish one letter per author per month. Letters will be chosen for publication at the sole discretion of the editor, and according to space considerations. No advertisements, personal thank-yous, form letters or mass mailings, please.

Those wishing to submit Letters to the Editor without word count limits, or with a guaranteed publication date can purchase space in the newspaper, $8 per column inch in the Public Opinion.
