Dax Radtke, right, on Tuesday presents Gail Essex, left, with a $100 check for being one of the winners in the Homer Winter Carnival button contest. Essex bought one of two “opposites attract” winning buttons randomly dispersed among buttons offered for sale around town. Another button may still be out there to be claimed for a $100 prize of gift certificates. There also is a prize for the person who has the most winter carnival buttons and a button with a number written on the back.
