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.

Response to shopping locally

Donuts(The following letter is in response to the LDN Perspectives article "Pennies make a difference in local economy.")

To the editor:

Very well said. This article is both very timely and a needed reminder to us during these very difficult times for all local stores, both large and small. It is during the months of November and December that these retail sales produce up to 50 percent of the annual profit for our retail stores.

Thank you for reminding us to try and buy most items locally so each of us can help save our own stores and thus our community.
