Profanity is forbidden. Your comments are subject to editing. Inquiries that may require research will be printed as quickly as possible, but may take a day or more to answer. Criticisms of private business should be directed to the business itself. Your calls should be restricted to 30 seconds or less and those longer will not be published.
Attempts to verify statistics, phone numbers and other information will be made.We hope this widely read and popular forum will encourage more positive comments to be called in and in many instances will provide us with ideas for stories.
