Poisoned corn can’t stop Papa Pat’s legacy

When Bryan and Stella Gober discovered their cornfield had been poisoned in August, it might have slowed them down – but it wouldn’t stop them from opening their family business, especially when it had a legacy to live up to. The Gobers, who run Gober Inc. Towing and Garage, decided they wanted to build a corn maze next to their shop on Hwy. 53 this year after the property was up for grabs with the relocation of the previous tenant, Uncle Shuck’s Corn Maze. The couple wanted their corn maze to pay tribute to Bryan’s father, Glen Pat Gober, who loved all things farming.
