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.

Shutting down 

After being awake for pretty much all but one hour the last 35 hours, it's time for me to shut down near continuous blogging. Thank everyone for participating in this new experience for The Sun Herald. I hope it was beneficial to folks out there.

I'll be updating ocassionally as conditions warrant in the near future. Please continue to visit The Sun Herald for continuing coverage of recovery efforts here and keep those less fortunate to our east in your thoughts. Figure out a way you can help someone out, whether it's there or just in your own community.

So long,
Don Hammack
