More Info: LeeAnne Bixler hopes her third time at the North Idaho Regional Spelling Bee is the charm. The 12-year-old is one of 44 young spellers ready to take a turn on the stage Saturday in North Idaho College's Boswell Hall Schuler Performing Arts Center during the fifth annual regional bee. "I'm hoping I'll win, but I do have a few butterflies," Bixler said.
