Medallion found

It wasn't a clever decipherer of clues but a curious little boy who found the 2006 Cheese Curd Festival medallion. J.R. Matzek, 6, a first grader at Hillcrest Elementary School, found the disk under a bench on his school's playground during lunch recess Monday. "I just saw a black thing so I picked it up and turned it over," said the boy, who will turn 7 in June. The medallion is worth $350 Ellsworth Dollars - an amount that made the boy's eyes widen with excitement. Plans had been to post new clues at noon each Thursday leading up to the festival, which runs June 22-25. J.R. is the son of Becky and James Matzek. Pictured with him is Hillcrest Principal Tim Brunner.
