      Thanks for letting us know about the spelling error. It has been corrected.

    Which schools were locked down? My daughter mentioned a lockdown yesterday at Pine Grove, but seemed to think it was because a coyote was on the loose!

  3. Pine Grove mom says:

    Would be nice to know if it was the coyote (one does roam the area)or this much bigger threat that caused the lockdown at Pinegrove. My children are very concerned after hearing about the arrest. And they told me that they would be mad to find out today that they were told of an coyote when indeed it was a crazy guy threatening death and bodily harm.
