‘The Messenger’ works to

resolve computer woes

Though the computer age has made all of our lives easier, it can be frustrating at times, and this is one of those times.

At The Messenger, we seek to put your voice in the newspaper through your letters to the editor and your guest columns. Everyone deserves their right to sound off about the issues that they feel affect them most.

For this reason, and to bring good ideas to a public forum so that positive change can be affected, we seek to publish all of your letters.

But due to a mechanical failure, that hasn’t always happened. On our website, the letter to the editor form has been processing incorrectly. For this reason, many of you who have submitted letters online have not seen them in print.

We apologize for the problem and our technicians are working to correct it. In the meantime, don’t hesistate to click on an e-mail link on our webpage to send a letter.

Letters sent via direct e-mail to newsroom@troymessenger.com or to brian.blackley@troymessenger.com can still be read and understood. Please feel free to keep your letters coming, though for now we encourage you not to use the letters form at www.troymessenger.com/letters.

We would also like to thank the reader who let us know that Confederate Memorial Day is celebrated in April. Tuesday’s editorial should have noted that Monday was Robert E. Lee Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
