KVT to verify all letters

To avoid sham comments and trolls, the Kootenai Valley Times has instituted a policy requiring those submitting letters for publication include your name and home area in your letter, as well as a daytime telephone number so we can verify that you are the author and that you intend the letter for publication.

If you wish to remain anonymous, you can include that as a footnote to your comment or so indicate when called for verification, but Kootenai Valley Times will no longer publish comments on its websites that we have not or cannot verify.

Also, we ask that writers not include links to other websites in comments, either on our social media pages or in letters submitted for publication on kvt.news or kvtradio.com.
