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 The address and phone number are for verification purposes only and will not be published.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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The quickest and most direct way to submit letters to the editor is by email to: email@example.com.
Opinions and letters may also be mailed to: The State Journal, 1216 Wilkinson Blvd., Frankfort, KY 40601; or faxed to 502-227-2831.
