First place winner Margaret Black, left, received a $50 gift card from Advertising Director Brad Casto.

Second place winner Mary Weeks received a $25 gift card from Casto.

Third place winner Alexis Fierro received a $15 gift card from Casto.

Readers, you still have a chance to win. On Nov. 11, the News-Star will include hidden turkeys in the paper as part of the Count the Turkeys Gobble Gobble Giveaway. The News-Star, partnering with FireLake Grocery, will be giving away $20 gift cards.
