WWI medal traced to Mass. family

Fla. man makes plans to return it

A World War I medal, found among piles of yard-sale junk in a Rhode Island home, will soon be returned to the family of its owner in North Attleborough.

The medal, local history buffs and family agree, belonged to the late Harry Malinowski and will be given this month to his sister-in-law, Clara Malinowski, 90, who has lived in North Attleborough for 56 years.
