PEDIGREED PUMPKIN - This giant orb, weighing in at 222 pounds, is rooted in hefty tradition. Grower Linda LeBlanc of Belleville bought the seeds from a Nova Scotia grower who is listed in the Guinness Book of Records for his beefy pumpkins. LeBlanc has been growing big pumpkins to sell as 'conversation pieces' for the last three years. This one, displayed at the Ypsilanti Farmers' Market on Saturday, was priced at $50. LeBlanc will hold her own 'pumpkin factory' Oct. 1-31 at her farm at 16421 Elwell Road in Belleville. The Halloween theme will include pumpkins, cider, Halloween masks, candy and pumpkin pie.

Louise 'Ma' Bass, 70, retired from East Middle School in 1985. Now, pupils go to her west side home to partake of her knowledge. And reading and math aren't the only subjects. 'We get around to talking about such things as how long to stay on the telephone without riling your parents, disagreements with mom or dad, boy-girl relationships,' Bass says.
