 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.
 “Fortunately it was at the end of the day when kids were getting ready to board buses,” chief said.
  High school classes had ended so students were put on buses and sent home.
 Superintendent Guy Parmigian also cancelled all afternoon games and extracurricular activities.

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.

Letters should be no more than 300 words and include a phone number and address for verification purposes. No anonymous letters will be printed. The deadline is Wednesday, Noon.

 Two Northwest Ohio state senators are seeking public input on legislation that would change how local governments create and maintain economic development zones.
       Senator Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) and Senator Edna Brown (D-Toledo) are hosting a public forum Friday morning in the Perrysburg Holiday Inn French Quarter’s Depot Ballroom from 10-11:30 a.m.
 Local government officials, economic developers, business and labor organizations and residents are invited to provide suggestions on House Bill 289, which passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 89 to 8 and is pending in the Senate Finance Committee.
         “We are looking for as much input as possible on House Bill 289 before this legislation comes to a vote in the Ohio Senate,” Gardner said.  “The legislation has the potential to significantly impact economic development efforts in our region and throughout Ohio.”
