Letters longer than 300 words will be edited or returned to the writer. Have a question about letters? E-mail us at email@example.com or call (515)232-2160.

Readers of Story City Herald are encouraged to express their opinions in their own words. If we discover that a letter writer has lifted his or her letter, in total or in part, from a political Web site designed to generate phony letters to newspapers, the person signing that letter will be banned from the letters page for a year.
We are sorry we have to set this standard for readers who may be duped into participating in phony letter-writing schemes, but we cannot tolerate the deception.
