Letter Submission

To submit a letter to the editor, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Letters must contain the author's name, hometown (state as well, if not in New Hampshire) and phone number, but the number will not be published. We do not run anonymous letters. Local issues get priority, as do local writers. We encourage writers to keep letters to no more than 400 words, but will accept longer letters to be run on a space-available basis. Letters may be edited for spelling, grammar, punctuation and legal concerns.


Why doesn't Sun publish police arrest records & court reports?

To The Daily Sun,

As an annual subscriber, is there any specific reason why police arrest records and district court reports for Lakes Region area towns aren't reported as in the Laconia Citizen, etc. since the information is easily and publicly available by directly contacting them? I would make for an interesting addition to the informed content of your publications along with the overwhelming abundance of impassioned Letters-To-The-Editor.

(Editor's note: There are a number of reasons, Bill, but by far the biggest is the lack of available space. We have built a successful business model that in no small part relies on controlling costs. We need to maintain a pretty rigid balance between advertising content and news content. The more pages we print, the more money we spend. Obviously, each reader would be willing to give up some elements of our total content package in return for more space for things they like to read. We strive to balance all those competing interests.)
