Perhaps, The Star should add Vikas to the staff to insure that there are no misspellings on the front page. Course some "brothers" are a "bother" (see photo caption).

Wouldn't that be ensure instead of insure?

Nice to read that a few students are actually studying. Bet there's no Sheemeekas or LaBradfords in this contest. Also bet the unionized teachers and the politically correct crowd totally disdain the spelling bee.

My kid attends school with one of the Indiana spellers. Great kid, well-balanced, nice family. He does lots of "kid stuff". This is his thing, not his parents. They support him 100%, but don't push.

Not really there Jo-Bob....Families is spelled correctly. You must have received "Stuck-on-Phonics" by accident.

If you are a "kid", then yes, they were not allowed to play with other kids. Of course, how do you know this? Did you stalk the kids?
