Chili cooks promise variety for cook-off

If you ask Rebecca Spencer about her thoughts on the fifth-annual Great Chili Cook-off, be prepared for an enthusiastic reply.

Spencer, an investment advisor with Holmlund Financial Services here, not only is a die-hard fan of the event—slated for Friday, Oct. 6 in the parking lot of the Times—but is among the 12 chefs vying for top honours this year.

College tour slated next week

High school students can get a look at what Ontario colleges have to offer when the College Information Tour drops by Fort Frances High School next Friday (Sept. 29).

“This is a large student recruitment drive where nine or 10 colleges will be in outlying regions, such as Fort Frances, to promote colleges,” said Shari McFayden, CIP co-ordinator for Northwestern Ontario.
