>The simple, sweet local Valentine’s Day story about the Torrington man who jumped into a Dumpster behind the Goshen Congregational Church and rummaged through garbage bags until he found his wife’s lost wedding and engagement rings continues to get national attention.
The story (CLICK HERE if you missed it) has been read more than 20,000 times at www.registercitizen.com, and on Monday, producers with ABC’s Good Morning America show called The Register Citizen to inquire about it.

Most are available online at
, where you can order glossy reprints in all sizes, or turn them into gifts such as personalized coffee mugs or T-shirts.
