Savings bonds, pawned 37 years ago, returned to homeless veteran

When a wedding ring from the 1890s turned up in our inventory, we did a little research, and wound up finding the family it belonged to.
This is the story of Olivia's Ring, as told by Steve Cameron in the Manhattan Mercury.

Pawn Shops vs. Pawn Stars
Pawn shops aren't always seen in the highest of lights - and they're certainly not always portrayed well in pop culture.
At Jack and Dick's, we take pride in our image and do our best to serve the community and run an upstanding business.
This column by Jeanette Erichsen in the Junction City Sunday Union tells the story of these efforts back in March 1985.
