To celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day, eight residents at St. Charles Health Campus in Jasper raced each other to see who could shuck two ears of corn the fastest Monday morning. Delphina Beier, left, and Virginia Bartelt worked to clean off the husk and silk from their ears of corn during the race. “I’ve shucked a lot of corn over the years,” Beier said.

 

Hilbert Fromme worked to clean off the husk and silk from one of his ears of corn during the race.

 

After successfully shucking his first ear Richard Fischer proudly presented his clean corn. "I could eat corn years ago," Fischer said. "But I can't anymore."
