Happy St. Patrick's Day spelling fun

Of course, for kids, today's final shows of the Disney on Ice would make for a perfect Dream Come True on St. Patty's Day, little kids that is. It's one of the better ones, less special effects but more acrobatic.

And there's this for local scholarly excitement:

Last year’s champion, Kuvam Shahane, 13, will be returning to the 18th Annual Oakland Press Regional Spelling Bee today to compete with 94 other spellers from Oakland County’s public, private and parochial schools.

The regional bee begins at 1 p.m. today at Oakland Schools intermediate district building on Pontiac Lake Road, west off Telegraph northbound.

Kuvam, now an eighth-grader at Rochester’s Van Hoosen Middle School, won an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C., last year after outspelling 86 other county students. He was accompanied on the trip by his parents Nitan and Nikita Shahane Kuvam of Rochester Hills.

Whatever you do, have fun and watch out for the motorists.
