Treasure hunters were 16 weeks into the search when Rodney and
Cheryl Howlett of Minatare put their sleuthing skills into high
gear and discovered a valuable item in Ash Hollow.
Like other hunters, the Howletts had been out and about in the
Panhandle looking for a medallion worth $1,000, part of the
Star-Herald’s 2011 Treasure Hunt. They had been following clues in
the newspaper, which led them to try locations in Oshkosh and
Lewellen. It was a third lucky trip, to Ash Hollow Historical State
Park, that brought them to the treasure.
