Long-lost wallet fished
From Associated Press reports
CONCORD, N.H. Robert Howley
has a fish story to tell that even he didn't
believe at first.
Howley, 51, was reunited with his
wallet last week after a four-year sepa
ration. It was found in 30 feet of water,
200 yards off the shore of Lake Winne
pesaukee right where he had dropped
it in 1985 while trying to fix his boat's
engine during a fishing outing.
A scuba diver who was looking for a
light that had fallen off an antique boat
found the wallet.
Howley said at first he didn't believe
it when Robert Ouellette, 24, called to
tell him he'd found the wallet, which
contained $480 in soaking bills. For
years, Howley 's friends had teased him,
joking that they had found the wallet.
But Ouellette persuaded Howley that
this was no gag.
"When he explained to me exactly
where he had found it, I got so excited
I headed right up there," said Howley,
who lives in Seabrook. "I'm very ap
preciative." 1' is governor's lucky number
