    We looked into this matter. The letter was inadvertently edited by a clerk. We plan on running the entire letter again. Our editing policy is to edit for punctuation, spelling and grammar. We do not change or delete wording from letters to the editor. We do reserve the right to edit further or not use letters if the letter uses profanity or is libelous. Sincerely,

    Tim Delaney

    We regret the misspelling of Commissioner Kevin Janak's and Extension Agent Joe Janak's last names. And we hope this did not cause any inconvenience to them. Again, we apologize for the error.

    First, I want to affirm our goal of getting everybody’s opinion on the Advocate’s Viewpoints Page. The editorial board met today and discussed what should be printed in guest columns.

    The editorial board has decided the following after reviewing your comments:

    Guest columns will carry a higher standard. We want this feature to be well informed, well written, thought out, researched, topical and timely.

    Letters to the editor will be published for all other submitted opinions except libelous or other letters with serious problems.

    This policy allows all to express their opinions on our Viewpoints Page. Again, we thank all of our readers for their input on this issue. We continue to invite you to submit letters and guest columns.

    As usual, you can submit letters by delivery to the Advocate, 311 E. Constitution St.; mail to P.O. Box 1518, Victoria 77902; fax to 361-574-1220; or e-mail to letters@vicad.com. Guest columns can be submitted the same way. Thanks.

    Sincerely, Tim Delaney - Community Conversation Editor Victoria Advocate tdelaney@vicad.com 361-580-6313
