    Wallet returned to woman after 56 years

    A woman who lost her wallet 56 years ago has had it returned to her after it was found behind a movie theater concession stand during cleaning.
    The wallet belongs to Vestle Wixom, but Larry Christian had a hard-time locating the wallet's owner, who was then known as Vestle Michelson.
    The wallet contained a Blackfoot High School student activity card from the 1949-50 school year and some photos, but no cash

    He turned in the wallet to the sheriff's department, where he works as a deputy, but said he was determined to find its owner. He consulted friends, and with some help, found out that Vestle Michelson had married Darwin Wixom.
    Christian presented the wallet at last week's meeting of the Bingham County Historical Society, where Wixom is president. Christian told the group he had a historic item to present and handed the wallet to Wixom.
    Wixom was amazed to have the wallet returned to her after it had been missing for so long.
    "After all these years, I'd even forgotten about losing it," Wixom said.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
