Readers, here’s your chance to sound off

in Voices by

Are you in favor of a parking structure in downtown Beaufort? Are you for Trump or Clinton (or neither)? Did your neighbor do something nice for you?

Whatever’s on your mind, we want to hear about it and share it with our readers in a new weekly column called “Lowcountry Boil.”

All you have to do is call at 843-970-BOIL (2645) or email us at theislandnews@gmail.com with your thoughts on whatever issue is on your mind.

However, like most things in life, there are a few rules:

  • Names of callers, their phone numbers or email addresses will not be published and The Island News will not use phone numbers or email addresses for any other purpose.
  • Please keep your comments to about 50-75 words (that means a minute or two on the phone). We do reserve the right to edit comments for space, grammar or spelling.
  • We won’t publish any comments that include obscenities.
  • We won’t publish anything that is potentially libelous. For instance, if you got bad service at a restaurant, we won’t publish that restaurant’s name because we have no way of knowing if the comments are true. We won’t hurt the reputation of a business if we can’t verify the comment.
  • Attacks on private citizens will not be published.
  • We’ll do our best to publish as many of the comments as possible, but that doesn’t mean all of them will make the paper.

In the meantime, get your thinking caps on and give us a call at 843-970-BOIL (2645). We look forward to hearing from you!
