Letters should be brief, with an outside limit of 1,000 words, and must include the writer’s name, address and phone number for verification. The editor may reject letters that have been printed elsewhere and may edit for space or clarity. Letters concerning elections will be cut off one issue before the election at the editor’s discretion.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the voters of Berne for their support in the election last Tuesday. One thing campaigning affords a candidate is the opportunity to walk up to people's homes and talk with them, answer their questions, and listen to their concerns.
Our most sincere thanks to the Altamont Veterans of Foreign Wars Post for hosting the memorial and arranging the military honor guard held in honor of our beloved husband, father, uncle, grandfather Edward Paul Cowley.
Sitting in my college dorm, 250 miles from home, I am astonished (then again, not really) to see our little town of Knox is (yet again) raising the already high taxes, a whopping 3.14 percent, on its citizens.
