Roasted In Fresno--Update

From Fresno Sketchbook, by Doug Hansen, p. 25:

"Thousands of dollars were buried somewhere in Fresno and KYNO broadcast clues to guide the treasure seekers. One clue hinted that the map to the treasure could be found buried at a spot that was faced by the 'monk' on the Dale Brothers Coffee Can.

Persons unknown had stopped the rotating can so as to afford a clue. Owner Joe Dale Jr. was not amused at this interference and has his engineering department create fake treasure maps that showed the money was buried under KYNO's radio tower. The zealous treasure hunters were fooled by the dummy maps and nearly dug up the tower in a mad search for the money".
