On Dec. 14, the Blarney Stone in Portage held its annual Chili Cook Off. There were nine entries in the contest. The judges were Loren Lippitt, Dan Mossholder and volunteer for the Portage Family Skate Park, Debbie Little. The winners were Kevin Malone, center, first place; Dan Schelvan, right, second place; and John Mulhern, left, third place. Winners received prize money from the Blarney Stone, and a check was given to the PFSP for $500 as a donation for the building of the new skate park in Portage.
