LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - It took nine clues for someone to track down the Winter Rec-Fest Medallion this year.
Jared Flick of the La Crosse Parks and Rec. Department said that the medallion was found Thursday morning around 10:30 a.m. at the Harry J. Olson Senior Center on the northside of town.
Jonathon Craig of La Crosse found the medallion secured to a tree to the east of the parking lot.

And speed limits do apply.
Doors galore in your view
And Santa's exit route is just nearby.
