Workshop Set oeal writers group, The Saint' Roost Writers, will be sponsoring a , Best-selling Author, Jodi Thomas on Tuesday, Decem- 1994 from 9: am. until noon in the Bah'field Activity Center on the Thomas topic will be, 'Jump-Starting the The cost for individuals is $10.00 at the door on December 8 or $8.00 ' early registration mailed by November 29 to: Counee McAnear, P.O. Thcoe Clarendon News wel- mes letters to the editor. However, there are some prin- ciples that will make such letters more effective. First, concentrate on the issue and avoid name calling. Call- ing Senator So-and-so "a fat, stupid, SOB" may be purgative for the writer, but it will not change anyone's mind. Second, be factual. Do your homework. Facts are much more persuasive than opinion. Third, sign your letter. Un- signed letters will not be publish- ed. The person who is too cowardly to sign his or her name is not worth anyone's attention. Finally, be timely, ffyour let- ter comes in after the deadline, it will not appear until a week later- -or it may be too late to be relevant. The Clarendon News pub- lishes most letters that come in, regardless of the writer's position. Publication does not mean that the newspaper agrees or disagrees with the writer. It does not even mean that the paper considers the issue important. Letters to the editor are a public forum. The paper has confidence that its readers can sort through material for what is informative, what is entertaining, and what is worthless. The First Amendment of the United States constitution tees eve penon the tO express his opinions. Every citizen should cherish that prin- ciple, whether or not he agrees with a given letter. Memorial Fund Set Up For Miss Ellie & Stanley McKee F" nds and concerned individuals have expressed a desire to "do something" for Miss Ellis and Stanley McKee in the death of their daughter, Becky, and Miss Ellie's  illness.
