Sandy Hook Shooting Prompts Increased Police Presence at Woodbury Schools

Lee Vague, Woodbury Public Safety chief, reached out to area schools to ask what could be done in the wake of the massacre in Connecticut.

The event was held Monday night for Danielle Jelinek, who has been missing since Dec. 8.

One nugget: Police were called about a dispute between neighbors—one accused the other of shoveling snow onto her yard. An officer made contact with both and tried to mediate the situation. One appeared willing to do so; the other did not. The officer noticed that the person who was unwilling to make amends had a sign in a window that read: “Merry X-Mas Ass” with an arrow pointing to the other home.
