Spelling not always on the mark throughout history

Carol Guensburn / The Republic
The young champion of next week's Scripps National Spelling Bee will win acclaim, a $30,000 cash prize and goodies worth at least another $10,000. All 275 contestants in the May 31-June 2 event -- much of it televised live on ESPN from National Harbor, Md. just outside Washington, D.C. -- will gain recognition and at least a $100 gift card.
