Best wishes to Morganne Drake, 14, who will carry the Floyd County banner into this year's regional spelling bee on Saturday at Churchill Downs. And a tip 'o the hat to friend of the store Shelby Lewis, who serves as an "inspiration" to Morganne. Read all about it in Friday's edition of The Tribune.
Ann and I have committed to help in stirring interest in the National Spelling Bee competition and to sustaining an eventual national champion from these parts. If you have an interest in teaching or coaching spellers, starting next fall, drop us a line at the store.
