Letters to the Editor
We invite readers to contribute letters to the editor. Please include a name and address for inclusion with the letter. Also, submit a telephone number where we can reach you so we can verify your letter.
We will not publish any letters signed with pseudonyms or submitted anonymously. We also will not withhold the names of the author of a letter.
The editor and this newspaper reserve the right to edit letters for clarity and length, and to withhold letters from publication that do not meet legal standards.
Deadline is Friday at 10 a.m. for the following week’s paper. Submission of a letter prior to the deadline is no guarantee of its publication in the following week’s issue.
Due to the popularity of our letters pages and to allow more voices to appear on our pages without infringing on other sections of the Observer, we are now instituting a limit on letters of 350 words. Exceptions can be requested if a topic warrants a longer discussion but that is at the discretion of the editor.
We offer obituaries as a free service to our readers if there’s a connection to the Southington, Bristol, or Plainville communities.
Obituaries are published on our website as soon as possible. We do not edit online obituaries.
We then print them in the following edition, but we do edit the print version significantly. It helps us to keep this as a free service.
Deadline is Friday at 10 a.m. for the following week’s paper. Submission of an obituary prior to the deadline is no guarantee of its publication in the following week’s issue.
