Lost wallet returned to owner after 67 years
Jen Zellers WBND- A Michigan man had his wallet returned after nearly 70 years. Warren Houghton lost his wallet in 1945 when he lived in New Hampshire. The wallet was returned to the Kalamazoo man with photos of his family, and an old letter from his sister. There was no money in the wallet, but that didn’t surprise his wife. “Oh no. There wasn’t any in there when I married him, and I said there won’t be any in there then,” Betty Houghton said. “It was unbelievable! It blew me out of the water,” Houghton said. Someone found Houghton’s wallet and his old baseball glove during construction at his one-room school house. Houghton doesn’t remember losing the wallet but he’s grateful that someone took the time to find him.
Fox 8- The first-place Cleveland Indians (37-33) rode a four-game winning streak into Saturday’s afternoon affair against Houston at Minute Maid Park. But the Tribe’s bats got squeezed by the Astros (29-42) pitching. The Indians scored first when Asdrubal Cabrera smacked his ninth home run in the top of the fourth inning, but Cleveland would not score again. Jason Kipnis led the tribe with three hits, but the rest of his teammates only combined for three hits. Jenmar Gomez started for the Indians and pitched three scoreless innings, before his June swoon continued. The young righthander served up back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the fifth, as the Astros rallied for five runs. Houston would add another run in the sixth, and three more in the eighth, including Jose Altvue’s fifth’s of the season, which made it 8-1, and closed out the scoring. The three-game interleague series concludes Sunday. The Indians will send Derek Lowe (7-5 4.30) to the mound, while the Astros counter with J.A. Happ (5-7 5.15).
