Anyone chilly out there? The weather has certainly been rather hot and somewhat mild lately. We will have to see just how hot the chili is at this year’s 11th annual Chili Challenge at Lock 3. Akron’s finest and firefighters along with others will be once again cooking up versions of chili for ultimate bragging rights.
