The glass bottle with a note was found recently near the Bellows Falls dam by 14-year-old Justin Shepard. It was missing its cork, but there was still enough information inside it to track down the writer, Sean Keown (COW’-un). Years ago, Keown and a pal shipped bottles containing notes down the White River in Rochester, about 75 miles away. Keown tells WCAX-TV he had no idea he would get it back. The old note promised a reward for the bottle’s finder. Keown said at the time, he was in elementary school and was thinking maybe a candy bar or soda. He thinks now it will be cash.
