A challenge for the chiefs

The relationship between the Jackson Township Fire Department and the Grove City Division of Police has always been amicable. That is, until the Chief’s Competition at the Farmer’s Market rolls around. On June 22, with the cook-off series tied 2-2, Police Chief Richard Butsko and veteran officers Lt. Doug Olmstead and Lt. Eric Scott battled Fire Chief Randy Little, Assistant Fire Chief Shawn Quincel and Battalion Chief Jason Burley to see who could make the best chili. Team Butsko went the more traditional route by creating a classic meat chili while Team Little took a more seasonal approach with a white chicken chili. After much savoring, a panel of five independent judges determined the best chili to come from Team Little, giving them a slight advantage at the annual Farmer’s Market Chief’s Challenge, which is sponsored by the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce.
