Public works employee retrieves ring from sewer

A wedding ring? Well, that's a bit more rare.

Joe Myers called this week to say he'd accidentally flushed his $500 band.

Storm water maintenance supervisor Kathie Kuzawa said public works employee Adam Wohlfert went to Myers' home, set up a filtering device on a nearby sewer line and, in less than two hours, retrieved the ring.

Myers and his wife, Angela, took apart the toilet to search for the titanium band holding three diamonds, but had no luck locating it. So they called the city for help.

Angela Myers said the ring "was a piece of metal that meant nothing to" Wohlfert, "but he cared."
