The Sun Herald's publishing plans

The Sun Herald will produce an Extra Edition on Wednesday that will be delivered free of charge to hurricane shelters across the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We will leave sufficient copies so that anyone who would wish to receive a copy may drop by the shelter nearest to them to get theirs.

Due to the approach of Hurricane Ivan, normal home delivery will not be possible.

As soon as it is possible, we will resume our regular schedule of publication, but obviously that will be impacted by the storm.

Every day that we are unable to produce and deliver a paper to subscribers we intend to produce papers that will be delivered to storm shelters. We have in place a number of contingency plans to continue publication should our printing facilities be impaired.

Eye on Ivan

Another casino question 

An e-mailer inquires:

I live in Southwest Florida and have just cleaned up after Charley. I had planned to stay in Biloxi this weekend and was glad to hear the eye of the storm did not hit you as hard as we all thought, however no news ever tells us how the casinos have made out and we cannot get through on any of the phone lines. I thought maybe you could give us some advice on how Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel got through the storm. Thank you.

The word earlier today was that Treasure Bay, considered the most vulnerable of the Coast casinos, made it through the storm well. The casinos are still trying to figure out when they can reopen, but are expected to open by this weekend barring problems with damages. I advise folks to try to call the casinos directly for this information.
