Indeed, I do remember Augie Heitkamp, and I believe he was married to a Fraser girl. Augie's younger brother, Howard, answered to the not-very-imaginative nickname, "Hikey." The elder Mr. Heitkamp was a jeweler/watch repair man, who did a little bit of everything; you could buy a pair of glasses from him if you could deal with the particular lens he happened to have available. Augie's kraut eating prowess is perhaps suspect, as the rules were not very specific and the judging equally so. What went down (the gullet) in the contest usually came up (behind the grandstand) a few moments later. So... 3-pound in 40-seconds? Maybe. A better judge of the credibility of this might be Judge Terry Dempsey, who claimed the kraut crown in one of the years just prior to or after Augie's fete. Whatever, it doesn't seem to have adversely affected Augie's longevity. Maybe it even contributed to it.
