PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) - A state agency says it will try again today to search western Lake Erie for two boaters who disappeared days ago with two others whose bodies have been recovered. A Department of Natural Resources spokesman says yesterday's strong winds and high waves weren't conducive to searching for the missing men, who are presumed dead. Authorities don't think they could have survived days in frigid waters.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - New rules for Ohio's county jails cover a variety of topics, including revised mental standards and emails.

Jail staff will be able to review prisoners' emails for security reasons and monitor and record inmate visits.
