Two-year-old Fenris Bennett seemed just as happy ripping up grass at Shafer Park as he did later chomping down on a Tootsie Roll from his pink basket of candy. Nichola Maynard filled about a quarter of her white plastic grocery bag with candy, but no plastic eggs. “I'm good at finding candy, but I'm not very good at finding the eggs. I've only found an egg once,” said Nichola, 9, of Boonsboro. Nichola, who was wearing white furry rabbit ears at Boonsboro's Shafer Park, didn't find any plastic eggs Sunday either.

When Elena Doss moved into her house on View Street in Hagerstown with its nice yard, she decided she was going to “do it up” for Halloween. Crowds of people gathered in the yard Monday night for the Dosses' latest creation: An elaborate scene of a ship based on the popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. The ship was about 16 feet long with a skeletal-looking pirate at the helm. His hands slowly steered the wheel of the ship, thanks to a contraption made from an old oscillating fan, a rubber band and some string.

With Halloween just a day away, the season of parties, foods, drinks, and desserts begins.   Traditional trick-or-treating can be scary for anyone who is trying to manage his or her weight, but striving for a healthy diet does not need to spoil the fun.     You can help spread healthy messages by providing healthful treat alternatives when passing the loot. Typical Halloween treats involve high-fat, high-sugar treats that can wreak havoc on any healthful meal plan.

Boonsboro remembered the fallen Sunday during a solemn Memorial Day service. Then the southern Washington County town’s downtown was filled with sounds of celebration as onlookers cheered, applauded and waved as a parade of musicians, Cub Scouts, cheerleaders and public servants came down Main Street. Many of the people in the parade, including politicians and children, tossed candy to the spectators as they made their way down the parade route. Children darted around adults and parked vehicles to pick up Tootsie Rolls, chocolates, licorice and other candies.

It was a tragic Easter. My in-laws had gathered at our house. My brother-in-law, Justin, brought along his dog, Pearl. A city-dweller who typically spends most of her time indoors, Pearl loves to roam free in our sizeable, fenced-in back yard. Sometime during the course of our hearty holiday dinner, we heard the dog snarling out on the lawn. One of my older children, who was closest to the doorway of our crowded dining room, bolted out to see what was going on. He came running back in with news none too pleasing to my toddler and preschool-aged children.

I was in the mood to create a new variation of cookies.  So I went through the cupboards to see what I could come up with on the fly — and without having to run to the store. What follows is a brief glimpse into the kitchen zone: A place where time, flavor and creativity are one — and anything goes.   I will say the secret to these cookies is baking them on greased AirBake pans to allow even cooking and to brown without burning or sticking to the trays. — Scott C. Anderson is associate food service director and chef with Shepherd University dining services in Shepherdstown, W.Va., and Chef Ambassador to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

Editor's note: This is the fifth in a monthly series about neighborhood grocery stores. One of the biggest perks of owning a corner store, Clarence Rudisill said, is the grandkids. "What kid doesn't want to come into Grandma's candy store?" Rudisill asked from behind the candy-filled counter near the register. Rudisill and his wife, Joyce, have run J & C Deli and Market in Hagerstown's West End since 1997. The neighborhood shop has earned the reputation as the place where neighborhood kids get candy and subs.

Chalky, gritty, funny-shaped candies of old are Susan Benjamin's windows into history. And history never tasted so sweet. "Put this in your mouth and close your eyes," said Benjamin, an author, former journalist and, more recently, a candy researcher. "Now imagine you're very cold and you're fighting in the Civil War. You're in a ditch somewhere. This is what you may have been eating when you felt bad or needed some energy. That's the real flavor. " "How often do you get that?"
