As part of this year’s event, the Ely Chamber of Commerce Merchant Committee will host the second annual Ely Northwoods Medallion Hunt.
This is an annual event with a different Northwoods theme each year.

The clues are designed to lead hunters to the medallion.
Plans call for the clues to be posted at the Chamber of Commerce building at 1600 East Sheridan Street, as well as on the Chamber web page (www.ely.org/medallionhunt).
Clues may also be found on the Ely MN Events Facebook page and at participating Ely merchants.
The first one to find the medallion will win $250 in Chamber Bucks, but there are more chances to win.

Ely man wins $250,000 Powerball prize

Gregory Adkisson of Ely claimed a $250,000 Powerball prize at Lottery headquarters in Roseville on Jan. 16.
Adkisson’s ticket was one of two tickets sold for the Jan. 10 drawing to win $250,000. He purchased his winning ticket at Voyageur Short Stop, located at 1815 E. Sheridan St. in Ely.
The second $250,000 winning ticket, which has yet to be claimed, was sold at Hibbing Short Stop II, located at 1121 E. Howard St. in Hibbing.
Adkisson’s quick-pick ticket matched four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball number, which is normally worth $50,000.
Because he added the Power Play multiplier option for an extra dollar, his prize was multiplied by 5 (the Power Play number drawn) to win $250,000.
The winning Powerball numbers for Jan. 10 are 7-24-33-49-50 and the Powerball is 4.
