Chili a hot item in Corbin

CORBIN — Published Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014

From 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, it was "Chili Time" in Corbin. Not just any chili — but the 31st Annual J. T. Ohler Memorial Kiwanis Chili Supper and Cake Auction, held at the Corbin Middle School Cafeteria.

Within minutes of the doors opening, hungry people made a beeline to the serving line, where Kiwanians and volunteers served up all-you-can-eat chili with all the fixins' for $5. Sponsored by the Corbin Kiwanis Club, the supper also featured a cake auction as well.

Proceeds from the event go the club's Special Needs Children project. Not only could you eat in the cafeteria, you could get the chili, crackers, cookies and soft drinks "to go."

Kiwanis Club member Jim Thomas greeted guests who picked up their orders and were on their way out the door. Jim's wife, Carla Thomas, is the current President of the Corbin Kiwanis Club.

By 5:30 Friday afternoon, scores of people had already made their way to the cafeteria for chili. Several candidates running for political office did so, too, and the event became not only a chili supper and cake auction — it was a large-scale "meet and greet" for the candidates to shake hands, talk with those eating, and also help out with the cake auction.

After the ducklings were rescued and put in a box, one of those helping out, Daniel Wallen, took them to his farm, where a friendly pond awaited them. Son Dylan and stepdaughter Haley helped put the baby ducks into the water.

    It may not have been as dramatic and heroic as many other rescue stories, but a couple of Corbin firefighters and some local residents went beyond the call of duty Monday afternoon.
