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.

To the editor:

Don't feel like cooking? You might want to bid on a scrumptious dinner for two at one of our local restaurants. Or perhaps you're a collector? If so, you won't want to miss out on our antiques that are available from Lincoln Antique & Furniture and Downtown Antiques. Or kick back and relax with furniture from Jake's Used Furnishings. These items and so many more, from car care to nail care and everything in between, are available for bid at our live auction and silent auction at the Relay For Life of Logan County on May 17. The live auction will be professionally conducted by our own Mike Maske, starting at 3 p.m., and the silent auction will be held from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. that night.

The American Cancer Society auction is always lots of fun, with professional baseball tickets up for bid along with gift baskets and potted flowers of all kinds that make great presents for everyone on your list! We invite you all to join us. Something for everyone!
