Maybe we should have handed out candy, as the youngsters who paraded through our office last week all deserved treats. But we figured their bags will be brimming tonight. First-place winner in our North of Tampa contest was 10-year-old Jeff Mueller, son of Susie and Dave Mueller in Carrollwood, who dressed in a homemade sea monster costume. The littlest entrants took the other two prizes: Kyle Pritchard, son of Keith and Odalys Pritchard of Lutz, came in second as a bumblebee. Kylee Rossiter, son of Tom and Alicia Rossiter of Tampa, was a pumpkin. Pictures of the other contestants are on Page 12. To all, a safe and happy holiday!
