This is a nice story and fits in with the discussion about passing out cards to let people know you metal detect. There is a picture of the ring. Sue

". . . 88-year-old woman swatted the grass away from her knees ? and accidentally flung her wedding ring into the field along Embassy Boulevard. The diamond-studded gold ring, which Mrs. Marzec had worn for nearly 60 years, had loosened as her fingers shrank with age. Now she was on her knees, patting the earth, praying to find her ring. She went into a nearby Chevron station and borrowed a pair of scissors. Then she got back on her knees and chopped away at the grass, crying, hoping. But she couldnt find it . . . A sheriffs deputy happened by the gas station that afternoon and saw Mrs. Marzec frantically searching for her ring. In his pocket was the business card for George Kollmer, a treasure hunting enthusiast who owns a couple of metal detectors.

Kollmer, 75, came out to the field with his trusty Teknetics 7700B coin computer. A dial on the metal detector indicates whether the item below is, say, a dime, a quarter ? or a ring.

"Its 99 percent right," said Kollmer, a retired auto mechanic who lives in Port Richey. "Its never failed me."

The Marzecs had already left ? they had to catch their bus back to their Port Richey home ? when Kollmer arrived. He asked the gas station clerk where the ring had been lost, and the attendant waved out toward the bus stop bench.

In a patch of overgrown grass between the sidewalk and a utilities box, Kollmers detector got a hit for a ring.

"Within 10 minutes," he said, "I had it in my hand."

He called Mrs. Marzec, then drove straight to their house with the ring.

Mrs. Marzec was in tears, and pressed $50 into Kollmers hand.

The ring from her finger belonged with her heart.

"If you promise yourself to someone," she said, "thats for life.""
