Candy Collectors

Ellie Cranston (second from right), 18 months, of East Liverpool, looks hesitant as she prepares to receive some Halloween candy from Bobbi Rudder, of Chester, on Monday. With her is her sister, Cadence Cranston, 5. Rudder’s home in the 500 block of Indiana Avenue is decorated each year with gravestones and all manner of scary things. She gives out candy to hundreds of costumed boys and girls who go trick-or-treating in the quiet residential neighborhoods of Chester. (Photo by Stephen Huba)
