Our phones ring off the hook even when our offices are closed on weekends and holidays.

Readers always have questions ranging from, “Why did the council member take that position on this issue?” to “Do you know the phone number to City Hall?” to “When will my letter to the editor appear in the newspaper?”

News Editor Christopher Fox GrahamSome of the questions we can’t answer — we cannot read council members’ minds, as much as it would make our jobs easier.

Others can be answered by the caller themselves in the same fashion we would find the information — City Hall’s phone number is in the telephone book or online.

When will my letter to the editor publish?

We cannot predict when a letter to the editor will run because it depends on the volume and when the letter was submitted. I try to publish letters by date received, but that’s not always possible due to space. If we have room for a 100-word letter, but the next in the queue is a 300-word letter, we go with the letter that fits.

We also do not guarantee every letter will appear in the newspaper. Our guidelines for acceptable letters to editor appear below this editorial.

Who draws your political cartoons?

Larson Newspapers’ political cartoons are drawn by Rob Pudim. He receives each of our three publications and draws his cartoons based on what he reads. He does not receive any input from us on content.

How do I appear in @ Random?

Readers cannot arrange to be featured in @ Random. That would defeat the purpose of randomly selecting a person to interview.

Why isn’t your entire newspaper free online?

Our website is meant as a supplement to our print product, not a replacement. We do feature a few news stories from the newspaper on the site, and the site is equipped with features not available in the newspaper, such as up-to-date weather and gas prices.

Due to volume of traffic, we have also recently upgraded our website. Check out our new upgrades at

How do I submit something to be published in the newspaper?

This is my favorite question because it means people value our content and want to be included on our pages.
