Farmer Creates Corn Maze Out of Sarah Palin's Image
WHITEHOUSE, Ohio -- From the helicopter you can see it clearly, Republican vice-presidential candidate and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's face in a corn maze.
Duke Wheeler of Whitehouse, Ohio, who owns the Butterfly House and surrounding farm, said he did it to bring people to the farm this fall.
"She created a lot of excitement and we would like to see a lot of excitement out here at the maze," Wheeler said.
It wasn't an easy process.
"We contracted with an artist in Idaho who drew the picture and entered it into a GPS system, flew in and cut it with a John Deere tractor," Wheeler said. "It took him about 8-10 hours to cut it. We saw it from the helicopter it's just a great image of her. I think she'd be proud."
Wheeler expects thousands to come out and check out the corn maze, Butterfly House, and other activities he has planned for the season.
