Pauline Basinger of Catawba is our winner this week in our “Find Wylie” contest. She was chosen from 83 entries who successfully found our friendly fish in the ad for Furniture-Mattress Liquidators on page 2B in last week’s Beacon. Pauline wins a $25 gas card graciously donated by Friendship Stores. Each week we hide Wylie Walleye in an ad and our readers, when one of them finds him, can either bring in a contest entry cut out of the paper or log onto our website … www.thebeacon.net … and let us know where he is, thus entering, and possibly winning the contest.
