The Press & Dakotan invites its readers to write letters to the editor. We ask that a few simple guidelines be followed:

• Please limit letters to 300 words or less. Letters should deal with a single subject, be of general interest and state a specific point of view. Letters are edited with brevity, clarity and newspaper style in mind.

• In the sense of fairness and professionalism, the Press & Dakotan will accept no letters attacking private individuals or businesses.

• Specific individuals or entities addressed in letters may be given the opportunity to read the letter prior to publication and be allowed to answer the letter in the same issue.

• Only signed letters with writer’s full name, address and daytime phone number for verification will be accepted. Please mail to: Letters, 319 Walnut St., Yankton, SD 57078, drop off at 319 Walnut St. in Yankton, fax to 665-1721 or email us at
