BIG ONE -- It's an odd shape, but nevertheless it's a puffball mushroom, and an edible one, found by Susan (left) and Karen Berry of 2735 S. Wagner Rd. The 16-pound specimen is of a convoluted shape, rather than round as puffballs usually are. They range in weight from a couple of pounds to more than 20 pounds in large specimens. Mushroom fanciers peel the skin from puffballs, cut out the stem area (to make sure insects haven't entered there), slice the white meaty part and saute in butter or cook with vegetables. Mushroom experts warn, however, that puffballs should be eaten only if the meat is pure white. When it begins to disintegrate, it becomes streaked with yellow lines first, and when this happens it can cause severe diarrhea or stomach upset. Also, some people are allergic to many mushrooms [sic] safe and choice to others, so if you're eating a strange one for the first time, sample it first and make sure it is safe for you.

Oh the Flowers that Bloom in the Fall: Edward R. Schlanderer, 727 Miller Ave, rubbed his eyes, but they were still there- the four blossoms on the French lilac bush in his back yard. A 78-year-old retired cabinetmaker, Mr. Schlanderer's hobby is flowers, and in all his experience he has never seen a September-blooming lilac, nor, for that matter, has he ever heard of one. The blossoms first appeared a week ago.

Andy Potter (left) and Tim Michalak seem to be listening to the "Great Pumpkin", perhaps telling a lively tale about Halloween which is only some two weeks away. The pumpkin tips the scales at 138 pounds and has a 88 inch diameter. It was grown by Leonard Salley of 8691 McKean Rd., Augusta Township. (News Photo by Richard Walker).
