Letters to the Editor:

The letters to the editor page is open to readers and can be used to provide a forum for comments on subjects of current and general interest. All letters to the editor must be signed and must include the writer's address and telephone number. Libelous letters will not be published. The News reserves the right to edit all letters. Opinions expressed on the letters to the editor page do not necessarily represent those of The Benton County News and its staff.

Any letters endorsing political candidates will be considered advertising and subject to a flat $25 fee.
