Style
    Articles: all text must be written in third person
    Letters to the Editor and Editorials: first person may be used, but third person remains the recommended guideline
    Abbreviations should be avoided. (Common abbreviations may be acceptable in a long article but must be spelled out immediately followed by the abbreviation in parentheses the first time it is used.
    Lists, Bullet Points, and Subheads should be avoided. Long lists of names, materials, phone numbers, etc. do not meet the criteria of a news article and therefore will be edited.
