Editor’s note: The Chetek Alert will be moving the deadline for letter to the editor submissions from 10 a.m. on Tuesdays to 10 a.m. on Mondays, effective for the newspaper published Wednesday, May 19. For that edition, the letter deadline will be 10 a.m. on Monday, May 17.
The move is due to the number of letters received on Tuesdays, the time it takes to fact check the letters and the time it takes to request verification of facts from authors. The Alert’s letter policy asks authors to provide sources, when possible.
The early deadline for letters will continue until further notice. The deadline for articles and ads remains 10 a.m. on Tuesdays, unless otherwise noted.
