As noted on the second page of this week’s issue, the new deadline going forward for the Farmingdale Observer, as of next week’s issue (Friday, Oct. 12), will be Thursdays at 4 p.m. for the following Friday’s edition. This deadline is for all submissions: articles, photos, announcements, obituaries, calendar items and letters to the editor.
As always, please consider the deadline on Thursday to be a 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 to be truncated or revised.
Thank you in advance for your attention to the new deadlines.
