The Big Lake Spud Fest medallion has been found by long-time Big Laker and retired civics teacher John Muir and his grandchildren, Mike and Jimmy Muir and granddaughter Elizabeth Johnson.
They came into Great River Spine and Sport Chiropractic Wednesday with their Spud Fest buttons to claim the prize of $150.
The annual medallion hunt was in its third week and the search was really heating up. The clue for the fourth week had already been written and predicted the contest was about to come to an end:
The search is coming to an end.
Don’t give up just yet my friend. 
You may have searched near and far, 
Rode in trains and cars from banks to bars.
Try a pier that is near and you may cheer.
  The Muirs found the medallion under a deck by the river at River Oaks Park on Eagle Lake Road.
