FUNKSTOWN -- Funkstown veterans from the Korean War and Vietnam War whose names were left off a plaque at the town monument will have their names on a new monument. Bill Osborne, who grew up in Funkstown, has spearheaded an effort to rectify the absences of some veterans' names from the monument at Baltimore Street and Alt. U.S. 40. The Town Council voted 5-0 Monday night to allow a new monument to be installed at the town monument and for Osborne to collect money for it. Osborne said it will cost $850 and he already has $500 in pledges from the Funkstown American Legion, the legion's Last Man Standing Club and another donor.

Long shot: Man finds rifle his dad used in Korea DAVISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - As gifts go, Jim Richardson's choice for his father's 79th birthday was a long shot.

Using that number, Jim Richardson went online and found the firearm at a Kentucky gun broker. "I couldn't even talk when he gave it to me," Virgil Richardson told The Flint Journal.
