HAZARD — The Hazard Herald’s 2016 Great Easter Egg Hunt has ended after a Wal-Mart employee found the egg hidden under the Hwy. 15 bridge in Vicco.
Andrea Rose Oaks, 23, of Hazard was able to locate the egg after piecing together the clues. The clue, “the egg can’t get any sleep because of the sounds of passing cars and Jeeps” made her realize that the egg must have been near a road. Following the other clues each week lead her to believe that the egg must have been hidden under a bridge.
Despite the head start of figuring out the egg was near the road, Oaks still struggled with exact location of the egg.
“It was still really hard to find,” said Oaks.
Oaks has worked for two years in the Jewelry Department at the Hazard Wal-Mart Supercenter. She plans to use the $300 to get her class ring out of Layaway. When she graduated in 2010, she didn’t purchase a class ring. After watching some of her customers buy class rings, Oaks decided that she wanted to get one for herself.
The Herald would like to congratulate Oaks on her finding the Easter Egg. We would also like to thank all of our readers for taking a part in the Great Easter Egg Hunt of 2016.
The Herald would also like to thank our sponsors. The sponsors include: Community Trust Bank, Complete Care Pharmacy, The Perry County Public Library, Walkertown Service Center, East Main Street Pharmacy, Sazon Mexican Restaurant, Mountain After Hours Clinic and Bert’s Auto Parts.
