Preparing for this week's Scripps National Spelling Bee, Jade Lee said she doesn't really like spelling, but she enjoys memorizing. Jade probably won't be asked to spell pygmy puff or puffskein - the type of Harry Potter terms she likes to memorize - in the national spelling bee. Although bezoar - an object referenced in Harry Potter movies and in the dictionary - was one of the words in the county spelling bee, the Smithsburg Middle School eighth-grader...

Teens Have Choices will have a team spelling bee from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, at Bridge of Life, 6 S. Potomac St., in downtown Hagerstown. Rather than individuals competing against one another, adult spelling bees are team competitions, with the members of the team consulting with one another before submitting the spelling they think is correct. The result is a combination of friendly competition and team spirit. Teens may form a team to compete against their parents, teachers, coaches, or friends from other schools.
