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.

Well wishes and casino questions 

Tom Zanfardino has a couple of questions:

First and foremost I would like to wish your community the very best in these trying times. I am a south west Florida resident and know what its like to clean up after a strong hurricane.

Now on a more self searving note. I had planed to go to the Beau Rivage this weekend. I would still like to go do you have any updated information as to when the casinos' may open?

I talked with a public affairs spokesperson for Beau Rivage who said they can't give a definite time, but they expect to reopen for the weekend. She said the Peter Frampton concert on Friday has been cancelled as has the weekend-long Flying High Aces Blackjack Tournament. You can call (888) 595-2534 for updated information.

For others with similar questions for other casinos, I recommend calling its 800-number.
