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.

More well wishes 

From Mickey Smith:

I am native Mississippian and have been checking up on your website for my hometown Pascagoula-Gautier area from Scottsdale Ariz. I knew since my first experience with Freddy at 9 yrs what a Hurricane can do ... I've been in 2 more Hurricanes (Elena and George) before I left for Scottsdale in '99 and been checking up on the Sun Herald from time to time and want wish my friends in Pascagoula and Gautier area my prayers ... I've also been educating folks up here about what a Hurricane can do and how powerful they are ... Hopefully we (Mississippians) will overcome this like we always do ... and thanks for the news as you get them ... Godspeed...
