“Don’t aggravate the editor! She does not like to talk on the phone. Email is the best way to reach her. Advice: Have something to say, and say it plainly and concisely. Save the politically correct crap for some other publication. We tell it like it is here on a take it or leave it basis. We are conservative, patriotic, and humorous. We tend to be on the order of shoot first, ask questions later. The editor, who has been on the seats for 18 years, enjoys a very close and positive relationship with her rural readers.”
