Pickeral Lake group home


There appears to be confusion as to why some residents of Nokay Lake are opposing the group home on Pickeral Lake Road.

This is not the average group home. These residents cannot function in a regular group home because of their behaviors.

A Department of Human Services (DHS) said that there may be sex offenders housed there.
