Back in Business

It's been a challenging day technologically, but we're back to providing you with the day's events.

Much has happened here since yesterday.

As feared, we temporarily lost power at our New York offices, and with it our ability to publish from off-site. We're back in the publishing business now and if all goes well, we'll be back in our offices on Monday.

Like many other financial companies, our operations and lives have been completely disrupted. Everyone's frazzled, but never more so when we couldn't work to keep our minds off this week's terrible events.

To make life a little easier for you, we're publishing articles simultaneously to both sites. We're also setting up a list of charities to go with our list of emergency numbers.

One of the brave stories throughout this ordeal has been the incredible dedication and service of our firefighting and rescue personnel here in New York. You've read the numbers of the lives lost trying to find and assist victims.

Three local charities are especially capable of helping the families of the rescue workers: the Widow's and Children's Fund of the Police Department, Widow's and Children's Fund of the Fire Department, and the Emergency Medical Services Command Memorial Foundation.

You may make your donations, to one or all three, by sending a check or money order to:

Daily News Charities, P.O. Box 3307, New York, N.Y. 10001.

Sadly, we have received no additional word on our colleague Bill Meehan. Our prayers remain with him and his family.
