A needle-in-the-haystack story that will lift your spirits.

Two sheriffs saved the day when they located an engagement ring that had fallen to the bottom of a muddy creek, as Husar Romance University explains, citing a couple of news reports.

Linda Huffman, the reporting goes, lost the ring when she was celebrating Memorial Day with her family at the creek. While attempting to climb a boulder, she fell and hit her hand on the limestone, sending the ring flying. Her fiancé then enlisted two sheriffs who are part of the Mid-Missouri Sheriffs’ Dive Team to help find the ring. Their search efforts were fruitless on the first day as they depleted the air supply in their oxygen tanks. But after doing some back-of-the-envelope calculating on where the ring may have landed based on where and how Huffman fell, the sheriffs came back the second day and located the ring at the bottom of the muddy creek.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
