ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the management of the editorial pages of the locally zoned editions of "The Dallas Morning News" newspaper in Dallas, Texas. Each section has volunteer editorial columnists called "Community Voices" who express opinions on matters of interest to their specific communities. The process of selecting the columnists is described. The newspapers' attempts to give their selected volunteers a feeling of participation in its operation, including attending editorial board meetings and other non-monetary benefits are given. The program is most popular with readers and has allowed the newspaper to present novel treatments of often-discussed topics.
