Just in time for Halloween week, Current State’s Peter Whorf brings us this monstrous tale. It's a tale of competitive pumpkin growing in Michigan.A Michigan-record pumpkin was grown by Holly resident Mark Clementz this year. The gourd weighed in at 1,947 pounds, breaking the previous record set by Dundee's John Harnica just days earlier. We hear from Clementz and Harnica about what made 2014 the year for great pumpkins.
