Think you know the whole story about Mississippi newspapers? Think again. Did you know 7-in-10 Mississippi adults are regular newspaper readers? That's 1.5 million people who actively engage with print media in the Magnolia State. Mississippi newspapers are the number one medium for local news and are the source consumers turn to first for advertising information. Don't believe what you've been told. Mississippians count on their newspapers. And that, dear readers, is the truth.

The Sun Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
