Imperial Palace query 

Paula Pender from Warner Robins, Ga., e-mails: My husband and I have been coming to Biloxi for about 5 years, several times each year. We always stayed at Imperial Palace and over the time, became acquainted with so many of Imperial's employees. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Biloxi and the surrounding areas and we will do what we can to help in anyway we can. In watching all of the news since this terrible tragedy happened, we have heard nothing about Imperial Palace or that side of Biloxi. If you can, please tell me how this particular hotel and side of town fared. I know some of the people we dealt with on all of our visits must have lost their homes and livelihood as well and I know there are other things more important than this particular e-mail. But I am worried about these people and am anxious to find out something about Imperial Palace. Thanks for your e-mail. Imperial Palace is still in the East Biloxi part of town that was severely damaged. I saw some aerial shots of the IP that showed some damage, but I'm not sure that we have gotten specifics from there. Keep checking our Web site for our best information.

A friend of mine is leaving today to go and work at the Imperial Palace. He is going to be staying there and working 7 12s for the next three months doing repair work. 9/2/05
