Michael Stogner Saved My Life

Original post made by Hilderbrand, Atherton: West Atherton, on Apr 27, 2010

A couple of months ago an anonymous poster put up a post with the title Michael Stogner Is a Hero.

This post generated 11 comments of which 4 were deleted by the monitors of the Almanac News Town Square forum.

The four posts that were deleted concerned my being the subject of abuse.

The four posts that were deleted were done so without any explanation by the Almanac News.

Mr. Stogner met with a neighbor and with several law enforcement and an elected official in Town. These people were sufficiently alarmed so that they personally risked being sued to organize my rescue.

I am recovering now, it will be a long recovery.

I owe my life to Michael Stogner. I am very grateful.

I have not written this post with my own hand nor have I used my real name. I am very wary of the Almanac News and the friends of the Almanac who occupy positions of privilege.

This post is most alarming. If true it means that knowingly or unwittingly the Almanac News is part of a criminal conspiracy.

The Almanac News has some explaining to do.

The Almanac News seems to continually slant the news in favor of developer friendly Lewis and Marsala, all the while portraying our mayor in the least favorable light.

For example, the Almanac News made no mention of the fact that it was Mayor McKeithen who led the rescue of this high profile elderly woman.

This is what I will say about the 4 comments deleted with no evidence trail of their existence.

The comments were on the site for a very short time period.

If you look at the thread you will not know that additional 4 comments were made. Vanished

Someone was trying to help me save an elder resident of Atherton, had I not seen that comment when I did I am confident the elder would have died period.

I have no idea why a local newspaper would have removed those comments. I'm sure glad I was on the computer looking at that screen when that comment was posted.

I would like to find out how many minutes those 4 comments were available to the public.

Stogner's Crusade was the thread that VANISHED the 4 posts, and then was locked.

I have wondered for some time about who else besides the Almanac might be making editorial deletions on this forum. I hope that there is no misuse from the county of using the the technology of the REACT task force capability, or any other way to hack in to this system to control public dialog.
Who is the real Almanac Web Master I wonder.
