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.

Eye on Ivan

A South Mississippi hurricane journal

Tuscaloosa worries about food 

Jimmy Boone, who is more than a little familiar with South Mississippi and The Sun Herald writes:

I used to live in Gulfport, and was a shelter manager at Gulfport High when
Andrew threatened. I also worked as a sports writer at the Sun-Herald. Now I
am in Tuscaloosa, Ala., and we are expecting 70 mph winds on Thursday.

One of my favorite places to eat is the White Cap in the small craft harbor.
I saw where you wrote Moses Pier was almost underwater. Is the White Cap in
any danger as well?

Glad for the Mississippi Coast that Ivan is starting to go more east, of
course feel sorry for the folks at Gulf Shores Alabama and Pensacola.

Our prayers continue for all.

I've been stuck here at the courthouse since that outing, but the reports I've heard is that the water hadn't really risen much more since that time. That's been a few hours ago since the last update from them, but that's the latest information I have. The White Cap was indeed boarded up and I took special notice of it when I was out there. It was OK then.
