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.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
