Editorial page changes on the way

State Journal Staff Report, Published:

With the retirement of State Journal Opinion Editor Ron Herron, the newspaper has formed an Editorial Board to express the newspaper’s views and opinions.

The Editorial Board will be comprised of Publisher Ann Dix Maenza, Editor Dan Liebman, Sports and Spectrum Editor Phil Case, News Editor Katheran Wasson and cartoonist Linda Boileau.

At the same time, a new policy has been instituted regarding letters to the editor, limiting them to 300 words. Letters to the editor must be the original work of the writer (no form letters), be signed, and include the writer’s full name, address and daytime phone number. The address and phone number are for verification purposes only and will not be published.

Editors reserve the right to refuse or edit any letter, and to limit the number published by frequent letter writers.

The newspaper welcomes letters to the editor as well as longer opinion articles. The opinion articles, which should be limited to 700 words, may appear in the Sunday edition of the paper on the Opinions Page. People interested in submitting opinion articles should contact the editor at dliebman@state-journal.com.

The quickest and most direct way to submit letters to the editor is by email to: letters@state-journal.com.

Opinions and letters may also be mailed to: The State Journal, 1216 Wilkinson Blvd., Frankfort, KY 40601; or faxed to 502-227-2831.

  • The only clean way I've found to create a paragraph break on this site is to string out a long line of periods. .............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. If you create a long enough line of periods, the line is automatically edited down to establish a single line break. .............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. It isn't the prettiest solution in the world, but it works.

  • Just let Dan do it and the rest get out of his way.

  • Thanks for trying, rickywayne. I'd tried the html tags, too. This problem is just not very high on their list. NEW posts, however, keep the extra returns (I think), but not the comments.

  • Derp :| guess not. Though it seems par for the course that the State Urinal would only allow you to submit run-on paragraphs. ;)

  • anonymous_1713 have you ever tried to use shift+return or what is known as a hard return? I am typing out this with a hard return for each line break at each sentence. This sentence should start a new paragraph. I am not sure if this will work. but just testing. If a hard return fails to work you could always try an html paragraph tab "

    new paragraph

    this is a new paragraph with paragraph tag

    this is a second paragraph with paragraph tag

  • Of course, you can always post articles and opinion on-line of any length, but you can't use paragraph breaks...that makes a lot of sense, doesn't it.
