<b><i>Adult spelling champs...</b></i><br>
Members of the “Bee Happy” team — Randy Jorgen, Kathy Lawry and Patty Jones — celebrate after spelling the winning word “flocculent” correctly in the fourth annual Moab Adult Spelling Bee held Thursday, Feb. 19 at Star Hall. The Bee Happy team, comprised of school district bus drivers and sponsored by Canyonlands Jeep, outlasted 11 other teams, including runner-up USU Moab, to claim the coveted title. The event is a fund-raiser for the Grand County Educational Foundation. During the competition, each three-person team had 30 seconds to write the target word on a white board then show the audience and judges the spelled word. Up to four teams competed on stage at a time. Tricky words that eliminated one or more teams included “cordillera,” “apocryphal,” “heuristic,” “intercessory” and “muumuu.” Winning the prize for best costumes was the Moab Realty “Cow Bees” team comprised of Antje Rath, Cassie Paup and Linda Whitham.
