Opinion

The Opinion pages are your place to spout off. This section contains Readers Reflect letters, My Shot opinion pieces, the occasional Face Off written debate, obituaries, and Mike English’s award-winning Shine On comics. You can also find community perspectives in our Think Local section, our monthly staff editorial, and Do Tell, which is a question we ask five community members each issue.

The word count for My Shots is 600, and as of Jan. 25, 2021, longer editorials are approved on a case-by-case basis. Letters can be reactions to our coverage or a local topic or issue you want to bring up and should be 300 words or less. Submit your opinions to editors@moonshineink.com.
