    letter to editor class ring

    Can you publicly thank Ms. Colleen Tibbetts on my behalf in your paper?

    I participated in the Jeep Jamboree in October. On one of the trails near Kane Creek, I lost my college ring. Ms. Tibbetts found it weeks later while on a cattle drive. She reached out to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University who in turn contacted me. She refused a finders fee or paid shipping from me and simply offered me a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    Will you mention this story in your paper so she can be recognized by her neighbors? That would please me greatly. Thank you! Merry Christmas!
