Hurricane Katrina was a heavy blow to our community. We are temporarily unable to publish your community newspaper.

We are establishing a special link to allow our readers to share news, information and inquiries directly. The entrance to this link will be listed on the front page of our Web site as soon as it is up and running.

If you have a specific story or photo you wish to share, please forward them to our sister newspaper in North Carolina – the Daily Herald. Address them to They will post them on the site as soon as possible.

We know this isn’t the perfect method of communication but it is a start.

We are confident that our community will rebuild and be even better in the future. For now, our prayers are with you and all our neighbors, and our hopes are for better days ahead.
