The process begins with brainstorming ideas for the upcoming issue. After ideas are finalized, the staff spends a week researching, interviewing, and composing. On the day of deadline, the work is subject to editing until the it is flawless. Then the webmaster updates the website for publication. In order to create a unified looking paper, fonts and text sizes remain consistent, and each article must be illustrated. The entire process usually takes about a month.
We encourage your interaction with staff members through email correspondence and submission of letters to the editor intended for publication on the editorial-opinion pages. The opinion pages are to be a forum of expression. Editorials will comment on relevant issues and attempt to influence the student body and the surrounding community. Their function is to condense problems, issues, and events, evaluate them, and recommend a course of action. Guest editorials are subject to approval by adviser and staff, but will occasionally be printed. Letters to the editor are welcome. They must, however, not include invasions of privacy, personal attacks, or libel of any sort. Names will be withheld upon valid request, but a verifiable signature must accompany each letter. These pages are open to free expression of ideas from students, staff members, faculty, parents, and community members. The Cougar Chronicle reserves the right to edit any submission without changing its substance or to refuse to print any letter based on a decision by the adviser and staff. Submit letters to the editor to email@example.com.
