The Journal will accept letter to the editor relating to the Aug. 11 primary elections up to Friday, Aug. 7. Letters endorsing candidates and issues will not be published after Monday, Aug. 10, unless the editor determines a response to a previously published letter is in order. Please keep letters brief — 300 words or less — so all can have their say. All letters must be signed, and address and telephone number are required for verification purposes. We will not publish letters without the names of the authors. The Journal reserves the right to edit or reject letters for length or abusive language.
Address letters to: Letters to the Editor, The Journal, P.O. Box 487, New Ulm MN 56073-0487, e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or submit them through The Journal’s Virtual Newsroom, accessible on our web site, www.nujournal.com.
