Richard, you live in AK and I live in TX. My only visit to Port Gibson took about ten minutes as I drove through. You, on the other hand know the town, having lived there. If you are really concerned, my suggestion is you get involved by following up on some of the Port Gibson links to find out what's going on and who is doing what and become directly involved with those who are leading the charge. Also, you could post a plea for assistance on Jim's Mississippi Board.
