Standing shoulder to shoulder on a Wal-Mart stage Saturday morning in Port Richey, contestants in the Dubble Bubble kids' national bubble blowing contest had five minutes to blow away. Officials measured each of their bubbles before the gum collapsed on their hair and faces. Most used four pieces of gum. Anna Hansen's second bubble, less than a minute into the contest, proved to be the winner. "I went slow and took my time blowing," she said.
