What do you think?
It’s nice to be asked, and we’re taking a break from giving our opinion on the world of Idaho County this week to ask you how readers can better interact on this page.
Opinion pages are an essential part of a newspaper where readers can express their unfiltered views to the rest of the community, and in turn, where their friends and neighbors can respond. Guest opinions here provide extended commentary on issues from public officials and spokespersons representing political and social causes.
The discussion and debate here is important for a community to express itself, for officials to gauge what issues or concerns matter for residents, and to lift these voices up to a larger audience in both print and web products.
And this is your page. So, we want to know how it can continue to be a forum for Idaho County.
In what ways can we be open to receiving letters and opinions? What options are most convenient for you to communicate with us: social media, online/website, etc?
Are there individuals from organizations, public agencies or government entities that you would want to hear more from?
What ideas would you like to see happen on this page?
Our view is we hold this newspaper in trust for the residents of Idaho County. This is a place where local news and stories receive priority, where you can find out more about your neighbors and issues that concern you, and as well it is a soapbox to speak your mind.
