A Rosary ring. Pennies, nickels and dimes. A small St. Christopher Cross worn for protection during long voyages.
These relics were among personal possessions buried with Marine Pfc. James Johnson after he was killed in the first major battle in the Pacific Ocean Theater of World War II.
After more than 70 years, the fallen soldier is coming to rest in hallowed ground amid the honored dead. He is expected to receive full military burial honors as part of a special ceremony Tuesday in Arlington National Cemetery, near Washington, D.C. He was found thanks to a dedicated group whose mission it is to find lost soldiers. http://pojonews.co/20yel44

At last, the first projects have gotten the state’s go-ahead from a massive, $2 billion school-technology bond that voters approved in November 2014.
Remember that? The state stuck this referendum on that ballot and, quite frankly, offered scant information about how the money would be spent precisely. Nevertheless, the public took a gamble and gave its blessings.
How this money gets allocated bears close watching. http://pojonews.co/1TUSkrE
Districts should be mindful of the money available

They were basic documents, but there is no record of them.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has been unable to find a record of a key tax document for the company of the man at the heart of alleged theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars in the the Harriet Tubman Terrace Apartments case. At question has been HUD's level of oversight while providing millions of dollars in taxpayer money. The search was part of a Poughkeepsie Journal investigation using Freedom of Information Law requests. http://pojonews.co/1YTyTDJ
For years, Carl Immich operated as a property manager at Harriet Tubman Terrace Apartments under a company that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has no record of.
