Exchange students to try for Corner Bar Hall of Fame

Rockford exchange students challenged to join in as well

A group of students attending Kent City High School have decided to try to leave a permanent reminder of their time in the United States by putting their name on the Corner Bar Hall of Fame, eating 12 hotdogs in four hours. They challenge students from other countries going to school in Rockford to do the same.

Lukas Kutilek, age 18, of the Czech Republic is staying with Cedar-Rock area residents  Phil and Laverne Calkins and saw the many names on the walls of the Rockford restaurant. He will try to add his name beginning at noon this Saturday, May 9, along with his classmates who are also foreign exchange students.

He will be joined by Manuel Martinez, age 16, of  Spain,  Nelson Filho, age 18, of Brazil and Kate Podhradska, age 16, of Slovakia. Not participating due to vegitarianism are Anabel Carrillo, age 18, of Ecuador and Chrissy Schuler, age 18, of Germany. Both will be on hand to offer support and would eat vegetarian dogs if the Bar offers them. All the students would love to have anyone else try for the fabled Wall or come on down to cheer them on.
