Magness Creek Elementary School media specialist Kathy Skidmore guides state Sen. Eddie Joe Williams as he judges an array of pumpkins decorated as storybook characters. “I am amazed by the creativity. And what a great way to give parents and kids something to do together,” Williams said. Skidmore said Friday that when she began the contest, to encourage reading, “I thought there might be 20 or 25 that would make pumpkins. There are 84.” Williams is one of about six judges; winners will be announced on Halloween after all the judges’ responses are tabulated. (Photo by Ed Galucki)
