It's Great Pumpkin time and Kelly Cleverly of Melba presented this giant 76 pound, 13 ounce giant to win $10 offered by the Melba Feed and Fuel. The Melba business, owned by Bart Pitman, sponsored the pumpkin growing contest and gave the pumpkin seed to local kids last spring. Other big pumpkin growers are Jan and Joe Barrett, 58 pounds; Brenda Gant, 57 pounds; Bill Bilboa, 50 pounds; and Jesse Torres, 40 pounds. The winner of the contest is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Gene Cleverly.
