Pearlington isn't forgotten 

Ben Caruso in Houston, Texas, e-mails: You guys at the Sun Herald are awesome. Amazing tenacity to get the news out. Any ideas on how I can get information on Pearlington? Every area local news station from the Coast to Jackson to national news have bypassed coverage on Pearlington. I know it's not a metropolis, but I've seen quite a few inquiries on other blogs, but no results. Any ideas? MS DOT tells me I can't enter the area for another 1 or 2 weeks. I've even given CNN a story idea for the forgotten little town in Hancock County. Thanks for the kind words. I can assure you we haven't forgotten about Pearlington. We're trying to expand our coverage areas every day, moving out as recovery crews keep expanding their reach by clearing the way. I know it's frustrating for people, but we won't forget about anybody. Please bear with us and we'll do our best.
