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.

Readers respond to Stan Tiner's column 

Folks respond to Sun Herald Executive Editor Stan Tiner's column from Wednesday:

From Elaine Bolea in Hollywood, Fla.:
Surmised every feeling of dread, despair and hope that I and many like me have been experiencing for the past several weeks while enduring three separate threats of a direct hit from a major storm.

I am praying hard for you and your community Mr. Tiner. We all are.

May God bless and keep you and yours out of harms way.

From Kenda Robertson in Florida:
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. I know what you’re feeling having felt the wrath of Charley and Frances. You’ll be fine.

From Toni Manibusan:
I live in California, and I just fininshed reading your editorial. I want you to know that there are many of us here on the West Coast whose prayers are with you and your families. Most of us here have never experienced a hurricane. We are earthquake folk here as you know. Please be safe. And God bless you all.

From Andrea Lee Janssen:
I settled in to read the evening news, and was drawn to your article through Yahoo! website. We all may be way up here in Wisconsin, thanking the good Lord we're not down there, but that doesn't mean our thoughts and prayers aren't with you all. Lord bless you all and keep you safe, the South survived plenty, and we all know it will keep on surviving ... I'm reminded of something the Lord said in the Bible once ... "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Your state and surrounding states are in my prayers, my family's prayers, and all the bible studies at UW Whitewater. Stay safe, and be blessed.

From Ben Wong:
My name is Ben, and I live in Toronto Canada. I was surfing the web just now and I found your article. Like you said "We all make decisions every day, ... Choices and consequences. And afterwards, we will take inventory and judge ourselves about the quality of those decisions.”

I truly hope you and everyone in your City will be safe, please take care, May the Lord bless you.

From: Kerri Ann Leonardo:
Hello, my name is Kerri Ann Leonardo, my fiancé and I live in Massachusetts but we have family friends who reside in southern Mississippi. I just wanted to say that I read your story on the Sun Herald and thought you did a wonderful job writing the story "Watching, Waiting, Praying." I was very touched and would like you to know we are saying prayers for everyone's safety. Thank you and God bless!
