    Man with Machete Hurts Kids in Pennsylvania School

    FELTON, Pa. (Reuters) - A man wielding a machete went on a
   rampage inside a Pennsylvania elementary school on Friday,
   injuring five kindergartners, two teachers and the principal
   before staff members subdued him, authorities said.

    The children -- four girls and a boy, all aged 5 or 6 -- were
slightly injured in the melee. But a kindergarten teacher and the
principal at North Hopewell-Winterstown Elementary School both
required surgery for hand lacerations.

    The wounds of 41-year-old principal Norina Bentzel were so severe
   that doctors sent her by air ambulance to a hospital that
specializes in reconstructive hand surgery 50 miles away in
Baltimore.

    State police identified the suspect as William Michael Stankewicz,
   55, of Johnson City, Tenn., and charged him with attempted ***,
   aggravated *** and possession of a weapon on school grounds.

    He was jailed in the York County prison after asking that his bail
be set at $2 million, a request granted by the district magistrate
presiding over his arraignment hearing.

    The outer doors of the elementary school are kept locked as a
  security precaution. But police said Stankewicz entered the
building shortly after 11:30 a.m. behind a parent and attacked
Bentzel when the principal confronted him in the lobby.

    An ensuing struggle between the machete-wielding suspect and
   school staff spilled into a kindergarten classroom, where five
   children were hit by the machete, police said. Staff members
finally subdued Stankewicz in a health room at around 11:45 a.m.,
just before police arrived and took him into custody.

    A 911 emergency call placed to York County Emergency Services
   by a panicked school staff member said the assailant was also
   carrying a baseball bat. But police said the report proved to be
   false.

    There was no immediate word on a motive for the attack. But during
   his arraignment hearing, Stankewicz described himself as a former
   Baltimore school teacher whose Russian wife and two children
   reside in York County.

    He also said he had no idea what he was doing inside the
   elementary school.

    A spokeswoman for Memorial Hospital in nearby York, a city about
   10 miles northwest of Felton, said 52-year-old kindergarten teacher
   Linda Collier was scheduled for surgery on Friday evening.
   Third-grade teacher Stacey Bailey, 33, was treated for minor
   injuries and released.

    The five injured children -- four 5-year-olds and one 6-year-old
   were treated for minor cuts at another nearby hospital.

Dear  $kinny... I was not trying to flame you. I was just politely trying to explaing the rules as I
understand them. Oh, by the way I am probably the most open minded person on the ng.
No offense meant to the regulars.

lol so lets change that to ONE of the most open minded as not to exclude the
others that think we... or errrrr they are too!!!  : )

But you are absolutely right about skinny.  Once in a while we may come across
something off topic thats too good not to share but skinny is trying to turn
this into "The JokeS of the Day" ng.  I was hoping someone would say something
about it!!!  Thanks Tony!!!

skinny... think you can find a board to post all your jokes that would be more
appropriate???  Most of us do know how to find jokes online when we are in the
mood.  And others have mailing lists that they share that type stuff with at
the request of people they know.  That way it goes to their mailbox and it
doesn't waste time for someone deleting things that they aren't interested in.
Some people can't even delete at all so it just fills their board with too much
OT's.  You may find yourself being filtered so people won't have to deal with
it anymore and then when you have useful info or questions on ponds they won't
even see it.

Don't lose sight of lifes simple treasures, they cost nothing yet are priceless

Si,  to 'killfile'  on Outlook Express, I go to Messages then to Block
Sender.  You have to make sure to highlight the name of the person you want
to block.  That's all there is to it !  Nice clean slate.

Aww Si do you have to???  I'm enjoying your replies!!!  I just love some of
your expressions!!!

But if you must... somewhere on your ng reader should be your preference
settings and that should have a filter section.  I just select "author is" add
the name I don't want to see posts from, add filter and save.  I think we all
have to do it a little differently so just click around and find your
preferences.

Well thats interesting!!!  People are getting annoyed with Bullfrog's constant
impersonal LONG copy and paste ads over and over and over... yet you are
annoyed with them for venting???  He was told a number of different ways to
change his style because it is becoming very tiresome for us all and I can't
blame people for getting some digs in.  And I do find them humorous myself!!!
To each his own I guess!!!  

Si just came back and was catching up on all these posts.  I have a feeling
you'll miss out on a great personality by putting on that filter so soon.

Thats ok Wayne!!!  But I'll take a smile or a laugh wherever it may be found!!!
 I don't think this will ever be totally educational with no humor or silliness
at times!!!  These are real live people here... not reference books!!!
