• A photograph by Wexford photographer Alicia Dal Lago has received the Kodak Gallery Award.

It was presented at the Professional Photographers Association of Pennsylvania annual convention held in State College.

As a Gallery Award winner, Ms. Dal Lago is eligible to compete for Kodak's Gallery Elite Award, honoring the "best of the best" at the Professional Photographers of America's international convention.

The winning photograph, "Leaning on an Old Friend," was taken by Ms. Dal Lago during a recent trip to her native Argentina. It depicts two old fishing boats abandoned in a boat yard.

• Mandy's Pizza, 3906 Perrysville Ave., West View, now makes and sells what it describes as an allergen-free pizza.

While previously serving gluten-free pizza crust, Mandy's Pizza researched and tested cheese alternatives, said the company's president, Steven Negri.

"With the help of Amy Soergel of Soergel Orchards Gluten-Free store, we have found a solution," he said in a news release.

The product that Mandy's now offers is an alternative to dairy cheese that is free of soy, casein, lactose, gluten, egg, wheat, barley, whey, rice and nuts. For customers who are allergic to tomatoes, a garlic-infused olive oil base is used to enhance the taste of the allergen-free crust.

The shop makes these pizzas with tools and stones that are washed, sanitized and stored in a sealed container in an effort to prevent cross-contamination.
