Long-lost college ring found and returned in R.I.


A college class ring lost decades ago has been found and returned to its owner in Rhode Island. WLNE-TV reported that a man found the Bristol Community College class ring deep in the sand on Second Beach in Newport. The ring was engraved with the initials CHF on the inside, which was how the man who found it was able to find the owner four years later. The 1982 graduate, Charles H. Fallows, has Alzheimer’s disease, so his wife, grandchildren, and two daughters accepted the ring Thursday. The man’s daughter, Cheryl Cantara, called it ‘‘a nice little miracle for us.’’
