KIRBY KIDS CAN SPELL! -- Lucinda Storz and Lindsey Wood, both of Kirby, represented their respective schools recently at the Vermont State Spelling Bee at St. Michael's College in Colchester. Fourth-grader Lucinda, at left, attends the Thaddeus Stevens School, while eighth-grader Lindsey attends Waterford School. The Kirby girls performed with poise and confidence, correctly spelling words such as gulag, discern, lithe and Mariachi, and they each landed within the top 15 in the state. The bee winner, Ronan Howlett of Middlebury Union Middle School, will represent Vermont in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in June.
