Back online 

This is Don Hammack at the Sun Herald offices on the Gulfport/Biloxi border. Our landlines have just come back on, although we are only able to dial outside the 228 area code. We're dialed up through an AOL number in Starkville. Stand by for an updated e-mail address to send comments or information to. My work account was forwarded to a local ISP, and it's not showing up on the Internet anymore. Bear with us, and we'll be back soon. The Bloginator

Be prepared for the next galveston hurricane of 1900 or find another one that's similar. As the Boy Scouts say: "Be Prepared"!
