Snowthrower Contest

The winner of the grand prize – a Troy-Bilt 26″ 2-stage, 4-cycle, gas snow thrower — is Jean Shriner from Lavelle.

The winner of prize two – a Yard Machines 21″ single-stage, gas snow thrower – is Harriet Zetelski of Jim Thorpe.


Newswatch 16 wants to explain an issue that happened Thursday night when we picked the names for the two winners of our Snow Thrower Contest.

We pulled the same name for both snow throwers.  It turns out one woman submitted several times for the same day and hour for the first inch of snow in our backyard.

By mistake, her name was included twice among the 111 names.  We immediately picked another person to win the second snow thrower.

We apologize for any confusion.

    If she entered the contest on different days as per your rules, she should be able to win both. Does it matter if the same date and time were on both entry’s?


    I came up with a better contest. When will the next structure fire be in NEPA. since there was 25 in the skook alone since October, we may need the person who comes to the nearest minute.

      I just lost. I didn’t get my entry in before 6:00 tonight. I was too busy handing out Joe Madden backpacks behing Granny’s Dutch Oven. God I miss the good ol’ days of slamming around with Sandusky.
