Top speller: Rosanna Gray enjoys the spoils of her spelling bee victory Friday at Prestige Assisted Living at Sullivan Park. Hippopotamus. Hypothesis. Cholesterol. Codeine. Bizarre. Those were just some of the words participants in a senior spelling bee hosted by Prestige Assisted Living had to conquer in order to make it to the finals. Jane Goertzen, Rosanna Gray, Mary Miller and Rae Bowman all made the cut in the friendly competition on Friday. Gray, who won, said she attended St. Mary’s Catholic School just down the street. “The sisters taught me to spell,” she said, laughing. “I give them all the credit for me winning today.” (Dan Pelle)
