From the Publisher Political "Letters to the Editor" It is once again time to remind candidates, their cam- paign managers and supporters that all political ads must be paid in advance of publication in the N/Warren Town and County News and all other sister papers. In the past, we have received Letters to the Editor supporting candidates for various offices. These will not be printed as a Letter to the Editor, but will be accepted as a paid political advertisement. Our policy for politi- cal ads is they MUST be paid for in advance. The ad must also carry a disclaimer with the name of the per- son paying for the letter/ad. The cost will be the same as for any of our advertising, $4.25 per column inch. Letters/ads expressing pro- or con-sentiments for ei- ther candidates or issues that the public will be voting on during an official election will fall into this category and must be paid in advance. As in all ads, we reserve the right to accept or refuse any or all advertising/let- ters. Watch For The November Ballot Sample In The October 21 st Issue. ?

LETTERS 9UR POliCy We publish letters to the editor when they are not libelous and when they are signed by the person or persons submitting them. Opinions expressed are not necessarily the opinions of the N/Warren Town and County News staff. Letters are printed as received. We do not correct spelling and grammatical errors. Sall) I just want to thank you and your staff for main- taining faimess during the election time. I wish we did not have to pay to get a recommendation for a candi- date printed in the North Warren Town and County News, but when compared to the Indianola Record Herald policies, yours are fair and balanced. As most local people understand, the Record Herald is run by Democrats. The result is that only letters to the editor favorable to Democrats are chosen for print. I have many Republican friends who write frequently about candidates and issues, but their letters seldom appear in the Indianola paper. I wonder if the public is aware of this censorship. Evidently "freedom of the press" includes the freedom not to print anything you do not agree with! /s/Jeanette Best Norwalk's Trick Or Treat Night Beggar's Night has been set for Saturday, Oct. 30. Youngsters are to go Trick or Treating between 6 and 8 p.m. Area residents are reminded to drive carefully as the littleones are eager to collect their Halloween candy.
