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.

Keesler AFB update 

Matt Baldwin, of Winston-Salem, N.C., sent in a question about the status of Keesler, then followed up before I could answer or post the original. Here's his report:

A follow up to an email I sent a bit ago -- just talked to my sister @ keesler
AFB, and all is well. my brother in law is part of the recovery team, and he's out surveying damage. lots of limbs down, power is on on the base, but off base some scattered outages. no major damage. thank you again for this site, it's really made me feel better to read the reports that the damage was not anywhere near as bad as to the west in FL. Keep up the great work!
