A family heirloom has made it's way back home as an unexpected discovery in Saratoga lead to a heartfelt reunion at Siena College. Reeny Milton of Galway was doing some planting at Saratoga Springs when she noticed a shiny circle in the dirt. It was a ring.
Milton did a lot of investigative-digging and determined the gold was a Siena College Class ring from 1949, belonging to the late James Forth who gave the ring to his granddaughter Veronica.
Veronica told Spectrum News she only wore the ring on special occasions and is delighted to have it back. In an ironic twist, the Niskayuna family got the call about the found ring the same week Veronica's grandmother passed away and they say they were grateful to get the happy news during that difficult time.

17 years ago, a man had to sell his beloved Mustang to pay for cancer treatments for his wife. She's now cancer free and his kids recently found the car on Craigslist. This was not a similar car. This was the exact same car. Same vin number and all. So, they bought it back for him as a surprise.
They brought him to a parking lot and reunited him with the Mustang. He was overcome with emotion. Not for just having his car back but about the amazing people his children have become.
And... a strange twist to the story. The man selling the car was also selling it to help pay for his wife's medical bills. She was recently diagnosed with cancer. So, let's hope the money from the car works as well for them as it did for the original owners.
And finally, a running back in Texas is proving that you don't need sight to have a vision.
The high school freshman went blind at the age of 5 but never gave up his dream of playing football. He plays for his high school team and recently scored not one, but two touchdowns against a team that didn't even know he was blind.
He says his ultimate dream is to play in the NFL.
