Already, we're seeing the new website design is sparking more letters to the editor.
Readers who may not have sent them in the past are finding the eary to use form on the online opinion page and using it.
Today we received about 10 letters on various topics, all good. They're in line to run.
Preference is always given to local readers. We have readers world wide on the web, with more than a half million visiting per month.
Never miss a local story.
Some say print is on the way out, but I always question that given that so many people want to see their work published. Letters are a perfect example. Anyone can comment online, and many do, but still many send in letters that are verified with names and addresses.
Thanks to all of our commenters and letter writers. You're contributing to a community discussion.
