Have an opinion on a local topic of interest? Write a letter.

The Star News is interested in hearing from its readers on matters of local interest. If you have something that you would like to praise or something that you think needs to change, write us a letter and we’ll consider publishing it.

Now may be the time, before the local election season heats up and are pages are filled with election news and letters from our readers.

Also, Larry Werner, ECM’s director of news has written twice about the topic of bullying. His latest is on this page after he heard from an ECM reader.

We would love to hear from our local community about the topic if bullying has affected you or your family and how it has been dealt with in the community.

Our deadlines for consideration in Saturday newspaper are noon on Wednesdays. — Jim Boyle, editor
