As noted on the second page of this week’s issue, the new deadline going forward for Garden City Life, as of this week’s issue (Oct. 11), will be Wednesday at 10 a.m. for the following week’s paper. This deadline is for all submissions: articles, photos, announcements, letters to the editor, obituaries and calendar items. As always, please consider the deadline on Thursday morning to be the last-minute deadline, as we prefer to receive submissions earlier rather than later.
In addition, as we are undergoing a few format changes to make a better newspaper for the community, we request that letters to the editor follow the 400-word count limit. If letters go well beyond this limit, we will need to send them back for revision.
We thank you in advance for your respecting our deadlines.
