The Beacon welcomes letters to the editor of 400 words or fewer and will print them as promptly as possible as space allows.

However, letters must include a first and last name, address and daytime phone number for verification purposes.

We also reserve the right to edit letters as necessary for brevity, grammar and taste.

Published letters will include the author's name and city of residence.
