    Nickel Mines School

    My Amish neighbor heard at church yesterday, that someone made an attempt to harm the children again at Nickel Mines School. The guy was supposedly arrested inside the school, and taken to jail She was wondering if this really happened or perhaps only a rumor? or if it did indeed happen??
