Annual Valentine’s Day Scramble Word Contest Winner Announced


Each year around Valentine’s Day, the Jamestown Gazette presents the Valentine’s Day Unscramble the Words contest, where anyone who picks up an issue or plays along on our website,, has a chance to unscramble the words and win a prize package worth hundreds of dollars. This year’s winner is Kathy McMaster.

Kathy McMaster is a lifelong resident of Jamestown who has just recently celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary with her husband Rich. The McMaster’s have three children, two sons who both live in Seattle, Washington, and a daughter who lives in Jamestown. They also have four grandchildren. Kathy and her Granddaughter Gia Bell, age 9, helped Kathy to unscramble the words for the contest. “We had fun Unscrambling the words together”. Gia is a 3rd grader at CC Ring School, she was cheery and excited about all the wonderful gifts from local businesses, she is active with soccer and several dance classes each week.
Laurie and Bruce Stanton owners of Stella’s Kitchen and Bar at 60 Chautauqua Avenue in Lakewood welcomed The Jamestown Gazette and our Valentines Contest winner to their restaurant to present the wonderful package to this year’s 2021 Valentine Winner. When stopping by to pick up the prize package, Kathy told the Jamestown Gazette that she “loves the Gazette” and picks up an issue every week. Each week she also flips to the Around Town Photo Page to see if she knows anyone featured that week.

Congratulations to Kathy for playing along with our Valentine’s Contest!
