It's sad to think there is someone dwelling among us who gets a thrill from wreaking havoc on the community and causing widespread panic. The unfortunate incident with the bomb threat at the Tyler County Fair last week was uncalled for, but it serves as proof that we are not immune to this type of terroristic behavior.
We should count ourselves among the lucky to have dedicated emergency service personnel in our county who are concerned with the well-being of their neighbors and more than capable of handling any situation that arises in a professional manner.
We sincerely hope that the person or persons responsible for the bomb threat at the fairgrounds are apprehended as soon as possible.
We urge anyone who has information about the incident to call the Tyler County Sheriff's Office at 304-758-4275.
