Yo, Dwayne. You still searching for that wallet you lost in the mid-1970s? Looks like Patricia Calhoun, the editor for our sister paper up in Denver, has finally tracked it down. Talk about service journalism.
While doing yard work yesterday in Conifer, Colorado, Calhoun’s brother happened upon an old wallet containing a driver’s license, a Kroger card and a student ID (sorry, no cash). The address listed was in Houston, which has us wondering if the Dwayne Wright in question is the same guy Steve McVicker interviewed back in 1996 for this story.
Anyway, Dwayne, your search is over. Hop over here and reclaim your lost property. Better be quick, since we hear Denver might start profiling all the Dwayne Wrights they can find, and it looks like you might have some competition. -- Keith Plocek
