Judy Aron passes along two pieces of news. First, a story about Connecticut's geography bee. Second-place was won by a home scholar named James Barasch, age 13. James, who got to take home several neat prizes, also did very well in last year's competition. Call this one his Labrador Moment.
Second, is a young lady whose name is familiar to Montana homeschoolers - Anna Rose Wright, age 13. She frequently makes headlines. The good kind. Anna Rose is this year's winner of the Big Sky state's spelling bee. The contest was as intense as that basketball game in Indianapolis: "After 41 rounds and 4 1/2 hours, Anna Rose Wright won the Treasure State Spelling Bee Saturday." Call that one her Mumpsimus Moment.
