The “Where’s Bella?” contest continues with a new photo and location. Shopping News readers have the opportunity to win four field box tickets to a 2016 Lancaster Barnstormers baseball game during their regular season.

By correctly identifying the location in which Bella, the black lab, is photographed, your entry will be entered to win a weekly random drawing. Two winners will be selected each week. This week, the contest entry form, rules and regulations can be found below. Remember to check back weekly for a new chance to win!

Bella was listening to a little Johnny Cash the other day and when she heard him sing, “I hear the train a coming, it’s coming round the bend,” she got so excited she had to go see a train. Do you know what small town train station Bella is sitting at?

The winners who correctly identified Bella’s location in the June 15th issue are: Susan E. Davidson, Bowmansville, and Ron Stauffer, Denver. Bella was at Hawk Valley Golf Course.

After wining first place in Digital Movie at the Regional Computer Fair, three Cocalico High School students entered their digital movie in the State Pennsylvania Computer Fair at Dickinson College.

Gabriella Marrero, daughter of Raymond and Trina Marrero of Stevens, Emma Mohlenhoff, daughter of Craig and Amy Mohlenhoff of Reinholds, and Bailey Leasure, daughter of Dianne and Christopher Leasure of Denver, worked together to create a five-minute movie called “Fantasma.” The movie tells a story about two best friends who were kidnapped. Told from the point of view of the survivor, the film recounts the death of one of the girls. Although the team filmed and edited the move in about a week, they plan to make very few changes before they take the movie to the state competition.
