The Flume staff and contributors to our Political Perspectives have been working diligently to overhaul and improve that section of the paper. As part of those efforts, a new format has been adopted and will be implemented in the March 17 issue of The Flume.

This will run in four-week cycles. In Week One of each cycle, contributors will submit perspectives with 500-word limits. Those perspectives are much like those seen previously in The Flume, and topics are still left entirely to the contributors. In addition to having stricter word limits, however, the perspectives are also required to have county or state relevance, unlike in the past.
