Q. I work for a park district. Should I be capitalizing the word(s) "park district" when not used with the full name? Example: The Fox Valley Park District serves over 200,000 residents. The park district serves over 200,000 residents. The district serves over 200,000 residents. When should I capitalize? from Aurora, Ill. on Fri, Dec 19, 2014
A. The district spelled lowercase suffices on second reference. If you must use both words after the capitalized formal name, it's park district spelled lowercase.
Q. Regarding West Texas Intermediate--a grade of crude oil used as a benchmark in U.S. oil pricing--how should it be capitalized, if at all? Also, is it acceptable to use WTI after the first reference? from Jefferson, Wis. on Fri, Dec 19, 2014
A. It's West Texas Intermediate on first reference, WTI in subsequent references.
