Letters to the editor policy

Unified Newspaper Group is proud to offer a venue for public
debate and welcomes letters to the editor, provided they comply
with our guidelines.
Letters should be no longer than 400 words. They should also
contain contact information the writers full name, address,
and phone number so that the paper may confirm authorship.
Unsigned or anonymous letters will not be printed under any cir-
The editorial staff of Unified Newspaper Group reserves the
right to edit letters for length, clarity and appropriateness. Letters
with libelous or obscene content will not be printed.
Unified Newspaper Group generally only accepts letters from
writers with ties to our circulation area.
Letters to the editor should be of general public interest. Letters
that are strictly personal lost pets, for example will not be
printed. Letters that recount personal experiences, good or bad,
with individual businesses will not be printed unless there is an
overwhelming and compelling public interest to do so. Letters
that urge readers to patronize specific businesses or specific reli-
gious faiths will not be printed, either. Thank-you letters can be
printed under limited circumstances, provided they do not contain
material that should instead be placed as an advertisement and
reflect public, rather than promotional interests.
Unified Newspaper Group encourages lively public debate on
issues, but it reserves the right to limit the number of exchang-
es between individual letter writers to ensure all writers have a
chance to have their voices heard.

This policy will be printed from time to time in an abbreviated

form here and will be posted in its entirety on our websites.

Storm: City employees worked through Wednesday night to clear debris after storm
Continued from page 1

The tree, removed Mon-

day, was one of many around
the city taken down by the
storm, including in city parks
and those that blocked parts
of a road or bike path.
While few caused the sort
of damage Scotts house
incurred (she luckily can
continue to live there during
the work), the storm caused
many to lose power. Alliant
Energys Wisconsin Twitter
account reported as many
as 27,000 customers losing
power around Wisconsin on
Wednesday night, and some
in Verona remained without
until Friday.
City of Verona public
works director Theran Jacob-
son told the Press employees
came in at 10p.m. Wednes-
day and worked until after
4p.m. Thursday to clear
some of the debris, which
was scattered throughout
streets around the city. He
said they had to use the
snowplows in a couple areas
to clear the brush from the
street, adding that brush col-
lection will continue as long
as theres stuff to pick up.

I want to again thank
our staff everybody that

Hochkammer said. It was a

I had a number of people
that came into Verona during
that time and were surprised
