Policy on post comments; Letters to the Editor

The Ocracoke Observer invites comments on posts or Letters to the Editor, for publication in either medium. (The print version of the Observer is published monthly from March to December. The deadline is the 15th of the month prior to publication.)

We encourage a civil discourse and reserve the right to edit for clarity and content. Comments that are abusive, off-topic, make personal attacks, use profanity or show a general lack of respect for another poster will not be approved and on Facebook will be removed. 

Also, we do not publicize specific locations of nesting birds or other sensitive information on wildlife so that they will not be disturbed.

Letters may be emailed to info@ocracokeobserver.com, or mailed to P.O. Box 427, Ocracoke, NC 27960.  Letters (both email and paper) must be signed and include address and contact information for verification purposes.  Unsigned letters will not be considered.
