Family is seeking return of watch sold in error

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News

I am writing from Jenks, Okla.

The problem is my daughter, Jessica. She and my two wonderful grandbabies, 2 1/2 years and 10 weeks, reside in New Castle.

They are trying to move home to Jenks. Her fiancé works for Walmart and is transferring to Tulsa, Okla.

The problem is this. We came up with the idea to sell everything instead of move it all because it would be cheaper. On Sunday, Jessica decided to place cardboard signs outside of her residence stating, “Everything must go by April 28” while her fiancé was at work.

Of course, she attracted many customers to 1214 Highland Ave. One kind gentleman stopped in. He conversed with Jessica and decided to purchase a few things. One of the things he purchased was a pocket watch belonging to Jessica’s fiancé.

He paid $20 for the watch. Jessica had no idea this pocket watch had belonged to her fiancé’s great-grandfather and is a family heirloom.

I am trying to reach out to the community of New Castle and to this man to return the pocket watch. The man mentioned he had neighbors with 51 horses and he drives a Jeep.

My daughter is devastated, as is her fiancé. They are leaving the state on Saturday. I will put up a reward if necessary.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. We have tried the police and tracing his call made to my daughter’s fiancé at Walmart to no avail.

We can be reached at (724) 656-9087 or (724) 421-3869.

    Editor, The News: On July 2, as I was checking out of our local Wal-Mart, something happened that disturbed me. A cashier went to the cashier in my lane and said orders had come down from the store manager that no one was allowed to wear any patriotic shirts, pins, symbols or anything showing patriotic colors from July 4 to July 11.

    Editor, The News: I always wanted to be a meteorologist. I am never wrong or right and I still have a job. I provide data that no one understands while I am warm and dry waving my arms with that important suit and smug smile.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
