Our letters section provides a forum for residents to write to their community, about their community. We invite letters about local concerns, issues, ideas, suggestions, recognitions, etc. Preference will be given to matters particular to Homewood and Flossmoor, but broader issues are fine, especially if the letter addresses the local implications. We encourage everyone to be courteous, even (or maybe especially) when debating contentious issues. We will not publish personal attacks, vulgar or violent language, obscene references or illegal use of information.
