Bringing the heat!
It was chilly outside and chili inside at the First Annual Chili Cookoff held at the Antioch VFW, 75 North Ave., Antioch, on March 23. ‘Service with a Smile’ is evident as Chili Chefs Jacki McFarland (suicidal), Liz Cowsert (mild), Kara Miles (suicidal), Sheryl Hinchey (mild), and Chris Hanafin (mild), all of Antioch, coax visitors to sample their culinary creations. The parenthetical terms refer to classifications on the VFW chili “heat” meter and are not meant to be a reflection of the competitors’ personalities. (Jude Kaider photo)
