GENEVIEVE POSTLETHWAIT | The SunMcCracken County High School freshman Kierstan Arant (right) practices CPR on "Mini Anne" to the beat of the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive" while classmate Hannah Massey watches on Friday morning.

Contributed photoThe Great PumpkinMaxwell Daley, 12, of Grayson County won first place in the seventh annual Largest Pumpkin Contest. His pumpkin weighed in at 582.5 pounds during the Kentucky State Fair official weigh-in Friday afternoon on the West Hall porch in Louisville. Daley is a man of few words but revealed the secret to growing large pumpkins is a lot of fertilizer. The fair runs through Aug. 28 at the Kentucky Exposition Center. Admission is $10, and parking is $8.
