Lost cane finds its way home to owner

When Peggy Nitsche got the call that the cane belonging to her father, John A. Weber, was found, she was in line for a pastry at the St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market.

“People around thought I had won the lottery,” she said.

The cane was found by Armand Schaefer, who was driving on New Jerusalem Road last Saturday when he saw it. He said he drove by it at first, and then wondered, “what the hell is that?” and went back. When he found the ornately carved cane, he thought, “holy mackerel!”

“I could get a lot of money at a flea market for that,” he said.

He said he kept the cane in the trunk of his car. Then on Tuesday he was in the Elmira Deli and Donuts, and read the article in The Observer about the family looking for the cane he found. He called the family, and Nitsche went and picked it up.

“Everybody needs to be reminded that miracles can happen,” said Nitsche.
