  • Classy, very classy young woman. Kudos to her and her family, may this experience further enhance her life. Failure, is just eliminating what doesn’t work, eventually you will get it right. There are no real losers in life if you never stop improving yourself; just late winners.

  • Our Jackson County Ranging Reporter is at the school today talking with the winner for a feature in tomorrow's edition. Because the bee went so late, our reporter last night had to pick a story angle before she knew the result.
    We also featured all of the competitors in special illustrations leading up to the contest.
    And you're right that we need to do a better job of watching for typos on deadline. These kids do a marvelous job of spelling under pressure. Hope you enjoyed our live Webcast of the bee if you couldn't be there in person.

  • The winner of the spelling bee has a total of one line in this story.
    Is this all she deserves for all her hard work? Who are her proud parents?
    How does she feel? This story is not about the winner of the spelling bee.
    Why would this wonderful child even keep this story for her scrapbook?

  • Oh come on Victoria Avocado...your mispelling is a daily comment on the need to hire the 11 year-olds from the Spelling Bee and send your reporters, editors, and proof-readers back to school. It's Sacred (say-kred) Heart.

  • "Scared Heart" – Perhaps the VA can hire Miss Negrete so she may check for this awful spelling by it’s reporters.
    It’s “Sacred Heart.”
