Letters to the Editor are limited to 250 words. You will not be able to submit your letter in this form if you exceed this limit. Please include your full name, town or county of residence and a contact phone number. We edit letters for length and clarity and to eliminate libelous or tasteless material.

Opinion columns should be 600-650 words and should be accompanied by a head shot of the author and a one-line pertinent biographical description. (For example, “John Doe is president of the nonprofit Kidz ’n’ Horses,” or “Jane Doe is a Durango City Councilor.”) Please also include your full name and contact phone number.
