The Clay County Courthouse employees had their 4th annual Great Chili Cook-off Friday. Out of 14 entries, first place went to Carolyn Latham from the Auditor's Office. She received a breakfast basket from the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store.
Second place went to Jamie Ringo from the Phoenix Office. Joan Nees, Extension Office, took third and Clay County Treasurer Jack Withers came in fourth. The apple crisp ingredient baskets and two $10 gift certificates, went to the 2nd through 4th place , came from Cracker Barrel.
Jack Withers, who won last year, was handicapped with a broken left shoulder from falling about two weeks ago. Apparently it takes two hands to mix and stir all the ingredients and spices Jack puts in the pot.
