It's a 575-pound pumpkin and it makes a fitting photo site and support for Ogden residents Marc and Barbara Pukos and their children Jessie, Katie and Alex. Marc grew the pumpkin from an Atlantic Giant pumpkin seed and it required plenty of TLC and water to reach its Pre-Halloween size. At one point it was putting on over 20 pounds a day. Marc keeps the pumpkin covered with a tarp during the day to prevent the skin from being hardened by the sun, which would cause it to spilt. The giant pumpkin will first be entered in a weighoff in Clarence, New York and then will end up on the family's front yard where Marc will carve it to use as a Halloween jack-o-lantern.

This American Flag, owned by the Snyder Family of Churchville, was hoisted for display last week via the fire truck owned by the Kurycki family. The flag was originally presented to the Snyders in memory of Steve Snyder who was a TWA pilot on board Flight 800 that crashed on Long Island five years ago. The two Dewey Avenue families got together to display the flag as a salute to America following last week's terrorist attacks. Photo by Linda Huffman.

Birtha to retire - Birtha Bear, an 8-foot "It's a Boy, It's a Girl" lawn sign that advertised over 120 blessed events during the past nine years, is retiring. "The idea for Birtha was conceived in 1992 as a way to welcome new family members to Parma, as well as offer a free service for that family to announce their addition to the neighborhood," said Steve Fowler of Hilton-Parma Recreation. The back of Birtha reads like a road map, listing the child's first and middle name and date of birth for every Birtha visit. Shown with Birtha is Sarah Grace who was the first child Birtha visited back in 1992. Filling Birtha's position will be "Congrats" the Clown which will be ready in September. Anyone in the Hilton-Parma area who wishes the "Congrats" lawn sign can call H-P Recreation at 392-9030.
