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.

Florida-centricity 

Last post along this vein, sent in by Cynthia Koets:

God bless the Gulf Coast while you prepare for Ivan. I remember Camille ... horrible. I now live in southeast Florida, and we are still reeling from Frances, terrible damage here. Bad enough here, worse still on our southwest coast from Charlie.

For the La-La-Land comment about Florida-centric, that's pretty cruel as the entire Southeastern US fears these storms, and the peninsula in particular. Perhaps La-La should take a look at hurricane history.

For those of you in the Gulf who are bracing yourselves right now, my prayers are focused on you. Good luck and be safe.


Personally, I'd just as soon never seen anybody from an outside television station here for reasons like this.
