Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

Thanks from Jefferson Elementary School PTO

Send a link to a friend 

Dear Editor:

The Parent Teacher Organization of Jefferson Elementary School would like to thank the community for its support in the recent playground contest that we entered. While we were not one of the top 10 vote-getters, which would have made us a finalist, we did finish in 15th place out of nearly 100 entries.

We would like to thank the Lincoln Daily News and Lincoln Courier for their impressive articles highlighting our need.

We would also like to express our gratitude to the Lincoln Community High School Media Communications students and their teacher, Jennifer Keith, for their work in putting together several videos to use if we became finalists -- viewable at www.tinyurl.com/jeffersonvideos.

We would also like to thank Lincoln IGA for allowing us to put fliers in grocery sacks.

And lastly, we would like to thank every person who voted for us, shared it with their friends and family, and encouraged others to vote.

Please be on the lookout for fundraisers in the future to support the addition of playground equipment to our facility. Seeing the community pull together to vote for this project has inspired many, and we look forward to your continued support.


Lacey Buss
Jefferson Elementary PTO
