Write a letter to the editor or opinion page column for your local paper. You’re most likely to be published if you keep it short and positive. Typically this means 150-250 words. (Be sure to include your address and phone number. This personal information won’t be published in the newspaper. It’s just so the newspaper can verify the letter’s authenticity.)

If you have more to say, contact the opinion page editor to see if they’ll run a guest column from you. These should usually be no longer than 650-700 words. The following website has links to on-line editions of many Nebraska newspapers http://www.usnpl.com/nenews.php.
