NEARLY EVERY page of the Daily News belongs to the writers, photographers, artists and editors of the paper. Nearly every page - except two: The letters page and the op-ed page. Those pages essentially belong to you, the readers. There you get to express your thoughts, opinions, feelings and insights. You get to tell us where we got something right, something wrong, or where we can take something and shove it. Giving people a platform where they can reach half-a-million readers is one of the essential services this newspaper provides.

"The Daily News PM Edition" will end its three-year run on WIP radio (610-AM) with this evening's show. The show, featuring sports writers and columnists from the Daily News, was on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m. "We've had three years of fun doing the show," said Daily News executive sports editor Mike Rathet.

I'VE read the Daily News almost every day for the better part of 20 years. The most pleasurable part of the paper is the sports section, in particular Bill Conlin, John Smallwood and Phil Jasner. But second to that is the editorial section. Edition volume 81, No. 160, dated Oct. 7, offered numerous well-written letters from David Szczepanski, Matthew Tulini, Susan Marston and Nick Amicone. These amateur authors have excellent opinions with appropriate "public" insights, unlike the childlike garble of some others.

IWANT TO compliment your staff for the wonderful job you have been doing on your newspaper. I read the Daily News every day and at least one topic seems to interest me in every issue. My favorite part of the newspaper is the crossword/puzzles section. My favorites are the "Wuzzles. " Most of the time I can get one out of two. Sometimes they can be really difficult, and I won't be able to guess even one of them. I also like the way the sports section is set up. I always check the basketball stats.

THE People Paper should be ashamed of itself. On June 30, the Dauphin County Court of Common Pleas began an evidentiary hearing ordered by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court relating to allegations of violations of the secrecy provisions of the Investigating Grand Jury Act. On June 27, the court ordered that evidentiary hearing closed. While an army of lawyers representing various reporters and news organizations, including the Daily News, appeared before the court on June 30, not one moved to open a hearing that had no business being closed.
