Christmas Cash ornament found

RUSHVILLE — Don and Regina Jarman of Milroy found the Rushville Republican’s Christmas Cash ornament Tuesday afternoon near New Salem.

The gold-ribboned box was strapped to a curve sign on SR 300S, between 450E and 650E, at the jog/curve in the road.

Don Jarman grew up in the area, so as the clues narrowed the search down he had a good idea of where to look.

With a smile and a wink, Don said the road where the Christmas Cash contest ornament was found was known as “Lover’s Lane” in the ‘60s because it’s a secluded road without homes.

“I knew within 200 feet where it was at,” Don said, so he and his wife went out to search  Tuesday.

Just five minutes after they found the ornament, they ran into another Christmas Cash searcher who was just moments too late following the clues.

Clues were:

Week 1

This is your first clue for Christmas Cash

Start gathering clues to find the stash.

Find clues in ads with the Cash icon

Put them together correctly, you won’t go wrong

Look in your community Newspaper each and every day

Put all clues together to discover the way

Week 2  

The prize you seek will be hidden well

Can you find it, only time will tell

The prize will be hidden on public property

No need to trespass, dig a hole, or climb a tree

Start the search with the paper in hand

Clues in ads direct you to the best prize in the land

Week 3

Early to rise or watching the sunset,

Heading one of these ways is a safe bet.

If you’ve searched in past and know where you went

The time you save will be well spent.

As you are out and about you may get lost,

What you seek could be covered with frost.
