    Akron, Ohio Cache!

    More than $10k was found while a crew excavated old basement foundations in the Akron area. The money may have been buried at least 50 yrs. The owner was never found.

    3 Property owners & the company that hired the excavators claimed the cache. As a compromise, the Amer. Red Cross was chosen to get all the money.

    Wanna bet that everyone involved will claim a $10K tax deduction.

    He must have been buried deeper. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    that's a good lesson for THer to take heed from and learn something. H. Glenn Carson does a good job talking about the weasels coming out of the woodwork in his book,
    "Cache Hunting". if you ever find one on private property - you'll be surprised how the owner changes his mind and wants it all. A written signed contract is a real good idea.
    Everybody has an opinion - this is mine. Humor will be part of that opinion. I've found things - some can only dream about. Some was pure luck, some was pure knowledge and skill. After 40 years at MD'ing (off and on), I know a few things about finding treasure lost in the ground. As a retired software engineer, I now have unlimited time on my hands. Life really doesn't matter unless you are true to yourself and in your dealings with other people.

    There are things about the Red Cross that I don't like. For instance when they come to your area in time of disaster the money and items donated do not go directly to your community specifically, but money goes in the national Red Cross account. And items donated go to a regional warehouse.
    But when I was deployed the Red Cross provided the soldiers with many of the conveniences of home. Plus they kept me in free reading material for a year. Overall it is a good organization they just need to trim some of the fat like most large corporations...Steve
