Sick of the hunt

United States

#22 Sep 26, 2009
No way I can't believe that's what they got 500.00 worth of what pop cycle sticks, and yarn . I mean come on who would want something from a craft ?store what a joke I can't believe that if they ever do this contest again they need to tell everybody 1st what the winner would get I know the tribune wasn't going to give any thing I would say they don't sell 500.00 worth of papers in a year lol really iam not jokeing if I buy one there r always a stack of them . No body buys them anymore to me they r worthless iam sorry but that's just the way I feel.I would rather have $500.00 from the dollar tree then from a kraft store but that is just me . Have a nice day Corbin iam glad the pumpkin hunt is OVER .

I'm just wondering why that pumpkin wasn't in the kiosk when I got the magazine out and dug through it back on Wednesday, Thursday, and then again at 1030 Friday morning?
wondering too

I find it very odd that the pumkin was not found
the First time the guy looked in the Kiosk.

If it was under a tray that he had to move, I can understand overlooking it the first time.

I think the Paper needs to explain the way it was hidden a bit better.

For all you readers, the winner of the prize does not get $500 cash. The sponsor of this years prize was Wal-Mart so the winner last year (Tim and Olga) whose names were in the paper got a gift card for $500 from Wal-Mart. As for this year, the sponsor was Kountry Krafts on Cumberland Falls highway. So guess what? The winner got a gift certificate from Kountry Krafts, that little rinky dink craft store next to Kroger on the Falls Highway.....If I had known this I would have never started looking to begin with. But if you want something from Kountry Krafts then that's good. Congrats to the winner.
Quit being such a sore loser. It said right in the paper that they are getting $500 in PRIZE MONEY! You lost, get over it. Try again next year. I'm happy for them....at least they work and it wasn't some lazy azz that won. I'll be looking for it next year so you might as well just stay home next year too.

To everyone let me explain:
When I scoped out the box in front of the paper office, i did not take out all of the books and look. I did notice thou that after going to several free racks that the books at the Times rack were poistioned differently, so when I went back that is when i took the books out and found it.
As for the prize was a $500.00 check that I took to the bank and cashed. I am sorry that everyone specualted on different things, but i wanted to set the record straight.

Thanks for reconciling your story with the one the Times Tribune pressured you to tell. My sources at the paper office tell
me that further compensation might have been offered for a "clarification." TWO five hundred dollar checks should make for an even nicer holiday season.

Someone may be a bit jealous.....try harder next year or maybe you should find a partner with a little more brains than you to figure out the clues....if you had a source at the paper there not a very good source ..... they didnt tell you where the pumpkin was hiding....lol.....the green eyed monster of jealousy is not very becoming.....
Sure you did

I didn't participate in the contest. I am an adult and I feel like those things are for kids to enjoy. I do believe that the contest organizers should have been honest about when they hide the pumpkin. They should hide it before the contest begins, not ten days afterward.

We did it as a family thing.....all of us....it was fun....I agree with you it should be hidden before the contest begins....but I can't say with any honesty that it was or it wasnt....
