Spelling Bee a winner

The annual Union County Spelling Bee is a reminder to us all that our public schools are doing a good job in teaching one of the basic fundamentals of education. That, of course, would be spelling.

The annual bee, conducted a week ago before a packed courtroom in the Union County Courthouse, annually shows off some of the language arts talent in our New Albany and Union County schools.
Twenty-two students from the city and county schools were involved in the spell-off, which was sponsored by the American Legion Potter-Henry-Lowery Post 72 and the post’s American Legion Auxiliary.
We congratulate all of the participants and especially the winners. Annabelle Botts, 13, of West Union Attendance Center finished first; Maggie McElhaney, 11, of New Albany Elementary School, placed second, and Joseph Rutherford, 11, of New Albany Middle School was third.
Spelling –and spelling bees – still are important in our computer spell-check world. Special thanks to the American Legion for its civic-minded sponsorship of this community event.
