A chili feed will be held on Saturday, October 14, at Fort Scott Middle School from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in order to help offset costs for two surgeries Kara needs to correct displaced disks in her jaw. Twelve to 18 months of orthodontic work will be necessary between surgeries. Insurance has offered to cover approximately 10 percent of the $66,000 procedures.
