Letter to the community

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.

We will not share your email address but ask for it only so we can contact you if we have questions or need clarification about your submission.
We will not share your phone number with anyone but ask for it only so we can contact you if we have questions or need clarification about your submission.
Please keep letters under 400 words. If you want to check the length, you can paste the text into an online word counter (http://www.wordcounter.net is one), or check with your word processing program's word count feature. We recommend composing letters in a word processor or text editor and pasting the contents into this form rather than typing directly into the form. If something goes awry while using the form, you'll have a backup copy.
This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions.
