In a chilling way to start the Labor Day weekend, 10 members of Water and Power Community CU melted their way to some easy money during the credit union's second annual "Cold Hard Cash" contest. The 10 contestants melted their way through life-sized ice sculptures to cash prizes ranging from $100 to $2,000. The 150-pound sculptures were molded to represent the credit union's loan products (car, home, boat).
