There is no charge for the publication of any news items, including social events, meetings, organizations, churches, and reunions. We want to share news that happens within our county with our readers.
We ask for articles typewritten and double-spaced to minimize errors, however, we accept legible, handwritten stories. Please submit items to The Calhoun Chronicle office. You may also submit stories via e-mail (see below).
The Calhoun Chronicle reserves the right to edit copy for clarification, style, or content to protect both the writer and the newspaper from libel.
All news and advertising items must be received by 4:00 pm Monday for publication in that week’s issue.
You may deliver your news directly to the main office, or e-mail it to us at email@example.com. Please send articles as attached Microsoft Word word documents or pasted into the body of an e-mail. You must include the author’s name and phone number.
The Calhoun Chronicle accepts clear photographs. We prefer a print from a negative but will accept computer generated photographs of high quality. Digital photos are acceptable – provided they are 300 dpi or higher. Send these in jpg or gif format as attachments (if more than 5mb please send in separate e-mails) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the names of those in the photos.
Letters to the Editor
Because we value our reader’s opinions on all topics of our community, we encourage readers to submit letters to the Editor. Letters must be signed, dated, and include the writer’s address or phone number for verification. Unsigned letters will not be read or published. Only the writer’s name will be published. Although the length of letters is not strictly limited, letters less than 250 words are preferred. We reserve the right to edit copy for clarification, style, or content to protect both the writer and the Chronicle from libel. We will make every attempt to make certain the writer’s viewpoint, and not the opinion of the Chronicle, is evident in the letter. The Calhoun Chronicle reserves the right to not print letters.
The Chronicle receives obituaries directly from the funeral home handling arrangements, but will accept them from individuals with the proper information. We publish obituaries of residents of the Calhoun County area, former residents, and those with family in the area.
