Emergency training vital, available
Shootings in schools receive a lot of attention from the news media but over the past 30 years acts of violence in businesses and churches involving guns rank just as high, members of the Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce were informed Thursday.
Authorities are still investigating bomb threats that occurred at the end of the classes Monday at two Oak Harbor schools.
No suspects have been found as of Wednesday, Oak Harbor Police Chief Steve Weirich said.
Officers are attempting to trace the source of the calls made to the Oak Harbor High School and Middle School shortly after 2:30 p.m. They believe the calls were made by a cell phone that can’t be tracked, the chief said.
The Press encourages responses to articles and opinions. In order to provide for fair comment, The Press will have the following policy covering election letters to the editor:
The last issue for letters regarding the May 6 primary election will be the second issue (April 28) before the election. No letters will be published in the issue immediately prior (May 5) to the election except for letters limited to direct rebuttal of election-related matters appearing in the April 28 paper.
No new political information can be introduced in the issue immediately before the election. This is to prevent inaccuracies without a fair chance for correction.
Letters are limited to ballot issues. The Press does not print letters about candidates’ races.
Landlord Adam Snyder is accustomed to additional costs popping up at his rental properties. It’s to be expected when he owns dozens of units around the Village of Oak Harbor.
What he won’t stomach though is coughing up cash for somebody else’s old utility bill that the village refuses to take off its books.
Snyder recently addressed village council with his concern. His issue: the $469 outstanding utility bill for a three-apartment building at 115 ½ Ottawa St. he bought in a foreclosure deal with a bank.
The Lake Township trustees plan to place a levy on the November ballot to continue funding for the fire department but are undecided whether to seek a renewal of an expiring levy or to replace it.
A 1-mill, 5-year levy is set to expire at the end of this year.
Fire chief Bruce Moritz Tuesday reported to the trustees that the fire department is looking to replace a 1994 fire engine housed at station 2 in Millbury.
