Silver Dollars & Wooden Nickels: Silver to pair who used knowledge of Silver State

The Nevada Appeal’s “Silver Dollar” and “Wooden Nickel” feature recognizes positive achievements from the capital region and, when warranted, points out others that missed the mark.

SILVER DOLLAR: To Trevor Oxborrow and his mom Jill Oxborrow, who used their knowledge of the area to find the Nevada Day Treasure Hunt Medallion after just five clues on Friday.

Trevor found the clue off the Faye Luther Trail and won the $1,000 prize.

SILVER DOLLAR or WOODEN NICKEL: Depending on your love (or displeasure) for winter weather, the small arctic blast was a either a welcome sight or realization that winter is much closer than expected. Good news – for the winter haters -temperatures are supposed to climb back up near the 80s by late this week.
