Letters welcomed

The Leelanau Enterprise welcomes Letters to the Editor. Letters must include the author’s name, full address and telephone number. When faxed, mailed or hand delivered, a signature is also required.
Letters to the Editor are accepted in three forms. They are:
• Letters of interest to the public and well-being of Leelanau County. Please limit such letters to 300 words in length to avoid editing.
• Thank you letters, which generally offer praise to individuals, groups and businesses for contributions toward special events, are limited to 100 words in length.
• Candidate endorsement letters are limited to 100 words in length, and will be published as space allows.
• And letters for and against ballot issues will be published. Submissions longer than 100 words may be edited as space provides and to avoid duplication.
We may withhold or edit letters whose content is questionable or cannot be substantiated.
The Enterprise also accepts Readers Forum submissions. Forums are limited to 500 words in length. Please include background information explaining the author’s involvement or expertise in the subject discussed, along with other information required of letters to the editor.
The names and addresses of letter and forum writers will be published in all but extreme cases.
Mail letters to 7200 E. Duck Lake Road, Lake Leelanau, MI 49653; fax to 231-256-7705, or email to
