Written bomb threat leads to evacuation of middle school in Altus

Posted By on Sat, Apr 5, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Some tense hours in Altus yesterday after a student reportedly found a note that included a bomb threat in a bathroom at Ozark Middle School just before noon on Friday. 40/29 TV news in Fort Smith reports that the students were evacuated to a nearby Junior High School campus while officers and a bomb-sniffing dog from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville searched the school. No explosives were found following the 3-1/2 hour search, and investigators are currently reviewing surveillance footage to try and find a culprit.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
