Publisher's note
You may be hearing of "arrests" in the Boundary County school bombing cases on regional news. To the best of my ability to verify, those reports aren't quite right. An expulsion hearing has been set for one student, but no criminal charges have been filed against either. The school can suspend, but not expel; the board has to approve the recommendation. I encourage everyone to remember, "innocent until proven guilty," and to refrain from condemning the students singled out. This story is just beginning; it's frustrating, but the truth will come out in time.

School bomb threat called in
10:54 a.m. Monday, March 18: The sheriff's office just received a 911 call from a person threatening to blow up the school, though the caller didn't specify which school. Emergency responders are being activated. 1:05 p.m.: It has just been announced that Boundary County Public Schools are being evacuated as a result of this morning's bomb threat.
