doors & amlee, I'm not disagreeing with the point of your comments but they both indicate the sad state of our society and how far we've regressed over the last 40 or so years. When I was a kid it would have been a surprise if someone didn't hand in money or whatever else they found by, and mind you, I grew up in Oakland.

I would like to know more information on this and know the complete story here. If this is true I like to hear someone from the high school give their side.

How many of us would turn in a $50 bill to lost and found? Not many. If this is true this kid should be rewarded for his honesty.
