The message made a threat against the school for Friday.</p><p> "We've had law enforcement in here and they have inspected the building and they have found nothing," Overman told The Evening Leader. "So the investigation goes on and right now, we feel the school is secure and safe."</p><p> Law enforcement is expected to be in and around the school the rest of the week. Overman said any threat leveled against a school is taken seriously.</p><p> "The safety of our students is very important to us," Overman said. "We take it seriously."</p><p> Overman said he decided to issue an automated call to keep parents informed on the matter.</p><p> "I want the parents to know that we are doing the proper procedures and I want them to get the information from me and to understand that the place is safe and students can come and feel safe," he said.<br />  </p>St. Marys, OHNo author availableBomb Threat Found At NBHSThe Evening Leaderurn:publicid:dailypress.com:10492Change0Usable2015-01-22T07:56:28-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:10491Schools Placed On Stay-Put2015-01-22T08:48:04-05:002015-01-21T15:21:46-05:00Copyright 2011 The Evening Leader ST. MARYS — A threat sent to a student's cell phone prompted St. Marys Memorial High School and St. Marys Middle School to go under a "stay-put" Wednesday afternoon.</p><p> Shortly after noon Wednesday, a student received a text message threat that contained a picture of a handgun. St. Marys Superintendent Shawn Brown said while the threat was investigated, the school was placed under a "stay-put," which meant students remained in their classes.</p><p> "We could have gone with controlled access, where we control who gets in and out of the building," Brown told The Evening Leader. "A lockdown is when students are kept in their classrooms and no one moves around the building and the thinking with that is there is imminent danger."</p><p> Brown said the student did not recognize the number that sent the text message. Officers from the St. Marys Police Department arrived on the scene and were able to determine the message came from the Chicago area.</p><p> "At that point, since it wasn't an immediately threat, we went back to the regular day," Brown said. "We investigate these incidents as serious. I'd rather be safe than sorry."</p><p> The incident remains under investigation.<br />  </p>St. Marys, OHMike BurkholderSchools Placed On Stay-PutThe Evening Leaderurn:publicid:dailypress.com:10491Change0Usable2015-01-21T15:21:46-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:10489Officer Talks Man Off Ledge2015-01-21T09:44:14-05:002015-01-21T09:44:14-05:00Copyright 2011 The Evening Leader ST. MARYS — A St. Marys police officer was able to change a man’s mind who was reportedly considering jumping from the Ohio 116 overpass Tuesday night.</p><p> At approximately 8:36 p.m. Tuesday, the St. Marys Police Department received call from the Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office asking for assistance in checking a report of a man walking down the middle of the eastbound lanes of U.S. 33, just outside the city limits. Officers responded to the scene but were unable to locate anyone.</p><p> An officer did spot an 18-year-old St. Marys man standing on the ledge of the Ohio 116 overpass. Officers responded and the man was approached by Officer Josh Boos. The man indicated a desire to end his life by jumping off the bridge. However, Boos was able to talk the man into changing his mind and he stepped off the ledge. Deputies from the Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office then transported the man to St. Rita’s Medical Center for evaluation.</p><p> “Josh Boos is a certified hostage negotiator and he also just happened to  be working when this happened,” St. Marys Police Chief Mark Ernst told The Evening Leader. “He’s trained in this types of situations.”</p><p> Ernst said the situation ended “pretty quickly” after officers arrived.<br />  </p>St. Marys, OHMike BurkholderOfficer Talks Man Off LedgeThe Evening Leaderurn:publicid:dailypress.com:10489Change0Usable2015-01-21T09:44:14-05:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:10488Daily Rundown2015-01-21T08:37:30-05:002015-01-21T08:37:30-05:00Copyright 2011 The Evening Leader <strong>Jan. 21:</strong> Preschool Dance Party at the St. Marys Community Public Library will take place at 11 a.m. today and will feature a half-hour of fun for 3 to 5 year olds.</p><p> Teen Games at the St. Marys Community Public Library will take place from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. today.
