Submission Requirements


Letters to the Editor

We welcome and read all letters from readers, and we salute those people willing to sign their names to their opinions. The letters chosen for publication are a representative sampling of the opinions shared with us. We include all published letters on this blog and encourage readers to engage in a civil debate: Attack ideas, if you like, but not one another.

  1. All letters that are not signed with your name will not be published.
  2. We will not publish any personal attacks; attacks on public officials’ policy decisions are fair game.
  3. We will not publish letters that contain profanity. We won’t print the profanity and we don’t have time to censor it.
  4. All letters become the property of The Suburban Newspaper and The Burg, Inc.
  5. Letters should be no more than 100 words. We reserve the right to edit any letter over the limit to fit the available space.

Guest Editorials

  1. The same rules apply to Guest Editorials as to Letters to the Editor Rules 1-4.
  2. Guest Editorials should not exceed 500 words. We reserve the right to edit any editorial over the limit to fit the available space.


The opinions expressed in Letters to the Editor or by guest columnists are theirs alone, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of The Suburban Newspaper. The Burg, Inc. and The Suburban Newspaper are not responsible for the accuracy of any of the information supplied by the guest contributors, nor are they responsible for any offense caused inadvertently through interpretation of grammar, punctuation, or language.


All submissions should be in our offices no later than 12:00 noon on the Monday preceding the publication date on Thursday. We accept ordinary mail, but we prefer electronic media.


All posts: Letters to the Editor, Guest Editorial, general posts.

  1. All rules applying to print media will also apply to online submissions. We will not post nor will we allow to be posted any personal attacks or profanity.
  2. As with print, any attack on a public official’s policy stance is fair game.

We strive to be your community newspaper, covering the news in and around the Best Southwest. We solicit any and all submissions regarding politics (municipal, county, or school board), local community activities, Chambers of Commerce events, and all school activities.

  1. Elders Annual Chili Cook-Off ~ Pull Out Those Recipes!

    The First Christian Church Duncanville elders are pleased to announce the upcoming Annual Chili Cook-Off benefiting the FCCD Elders’ In-Reach Fund. The Elders’ In-Reach fund benefits the members of First Christian Church Duncanville, in the event of an emergency situation where help is needed.

    Save the date and mark your calendars for Sunday, January 27th 12:00 p.m. Plan to come be a part of this fun event that benefits our Church family and features great “all you can eat chili” (and other scrumptious food items for those not so fond of chili). There will be door prizes, plenty of fellowship, and several awesome raffle baskets and raffle items. Raffle tickets will be $1.00, and admission to the cook-off will be a love offering.

    Of course, for you great cooks out there, we encourage your participation in entering your favorite chili or alternative dish, which also will greatly support this fundraiser. Prizes will be issued to three chili winners, as well as to the best alternative “non-chili” dish. The judges for the cook-off will include a panel of “world famous” FCCD foodies.

    Begin to think about your best Chili recipe (or “other” stew, soup or….) and be ready to submit your entry form. For an entry form contact the church office at 972-298-2166 or .

    We hope you will join us for a wonderful time of food, fun and fellowship on January 27th!
