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 on page 17A. Remember to check back weekly for a new chance to win!

Bella is always on guard for ways to enjoy the summer season, so she met with Jim Summers this week to hear his suggestions on beating the heat this summer. The large slide in the background was suggested, but Bella took a rain check on that adventure for now. Do you know where Bella is?

The winners who correctly identified Bella’s location in the April 13th issue are: Holly Rutt, Stevens, and Donald H. Sullenberger, Jr., Ephrata. Bella was at Leid, Lorah & Company, P.C.
