The goal for corn used to be knee high by the Fourth of July. How times have changed! Erma Jean Robison, a resident of Heartland Health Care Center in Henry, wanted to measure herself against how tall the corn was on June 25. She has been amazed how tall the corn has grown in the last week. She goes out in the mornings for her daily walk and was reminiscing when she was a child everyone was hoping corn was knee high by the Fourth of July.
