HBO @ Noon: Spelling Bees

Item: Under her spell: Sixth-grader takes a third shot at advancing to Scripps National Spelling Bee/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d’Alene Press

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.

Question: Did you ever participate in a Spelling Bee?
