The annual Saint Paul Winter Carnival Medallion Hunt is over. The medallion, a Saint Paul Pioneer Press promotion, comes with something extra this year: commentary on the state of the health care system.
The PiPress reports that Scot Tuma and Lynn Olson-Tuma found the medallion hidden in Cherokee Heights Park.
They win $10,000, which Lynn will use to buy medicine insurance won’t cover, the paper says.
“I was having a little conversation with God,” Olson-Tuma told the paper. “If I’m meant to find this, I will.”
