The Sabine Index of Many posted the above false awareness message on their Facebook page Friday afternoon in an attempt to mislead the public. First of all it is the understanding of Around The Town the Sheriff’s Office never contacted the Index regarding the report. Around The Town did receive a call from Many Police Officer Phillip Curtrer Friday afternoon at 1:23 pm asking if the female the Index mentioned in their post actually worked for Around The Town. We acknowledged she was a staff reporter for Around The Town and that she lived on Ponder Street and was taking pictures of the impressive flag displays in her neighborhood to include in a patriotic story that will appear on the front page of the July issue of Around The Town. Officer Curtrer advised ATT that the reporter never told anyone that she worked for the Index. Why would she? Around The Town is asking that the Index retract their post and advise the public of the true facts and in the future refrain from making any misleading statements. We feel that this will prevent alarming and frightening the public in the future.
