Important letter from The Horizon to arrive Staff Report We know you get a lot of mail — whether it is information you requested or bills you’d prefer to ignore. Then, every Thursday, you receive your community newspaper, The Homer Horizon, free of charge. This week, you’ll be getting a letter from The Horizon Editor Thomas Czaja that we want to be sure you open, because the letter has a simple but important purpose: We need your help to keep The Horizon free. Every three years, we ask residents to complete a simple task that allows us to send our newspaper for no charge. It’s that time again, and all you have to do is fill out a card requesting the newspaper, sign at the bottom and send it back to us. That card will be arriving in the mail this week, along with the letter from our editor. Even if you returned your request card three years ago, we do still need you to send in a card to renew your request for the newspaper. It is a requirement of the U.S. Postal Service that our readers request the newspaper and renew that request every three years. If you have never sent in a card, we ask that you fill one out and send it in. If you did send a card in the past few weeks, we thank you, and you will not be receiving a letter. As a convenience, the card is also available digitally at, where you can fill it out and submit in just a few seconds. The request card is not a subscription form that requires payment information or anything beyond your name, address and signature. And we promise we will not share your information with outside parties. The information is required by the U.S. Postal Service to ensure The Horizon readers want to receive the free community newspaper. We need you and your neighbors’ signatures to qualify for this important designation that allows us to continue to mail The Horizon free to the residents of and businesses in Homer Glen. The letter you will receive explains the project in more detail, and it also includes a copy of the card so you can send it back right away. Should you happen to misplace the card, do not worry. The project is so important that we print a copy of the card in The Horizon each week. All you have to do is tear it out of the paper, fill it out, and mail or fax it back to us. This week, you’ll find it on Page 9. So, please sign the card and send it back to us. And remind the neighbors!
