From the Star Beacon:
Seventh grader wins Grand Valley spelling bee

ORWELL — The room exploded with raucous applause after James Elliott, a seventh grader at Grand Valley Middle School, spelled the word raucous correctly clinching his second straight district-wide spelling bee Tuesday evening.

Elliott also is the defending Ashtabula County champion and will soon be defending his title.

Twenty three competitors started the competition and almost 90 minutes later Elliott was in the final round with Summer Poyer, a fourth grader, and Alex Bill, a seventh grader.

As the three finalists entered the 13th round Poyer nervously tapped her feet. Elliott spelled his word correctly and the two girls missed their words setting up one word for Elliott to claim the championship.

Several contestants reacted happily after spelling a word correctly.

Pleasant, cucumber, subsequent, personage and archaic were just a few of the words the students had to spell.

During the first three rounds only four competitors were eliminated and there were still nine students left after seven rounds.

More than 80 fans sat on chairs in the school’s auditorium quietly hoping for a family victory.

Elliott is the son of Rebecca and Robert Elliott. He will be defending his title at the Ashtabula County Spelling Bee in February.

With Sympathy: Carl Horst

Romeo Carl

Carl Horst retired to Roaming Shores (822 Western Ct.). Carl and Nancy were prominent residents until they moved to Tucson. Nancy died last summer and we have learned that Carl died 29 Dec, while visiting his daughter in Alabama. No obituary has been made available yet, but they had many friends at the Lake and Carl was one of the original ROMEOs.

Our hearts go out to the Horst family.

Safe Boating Class

Boating Safety Committee
By: Bruce C. Bower

The Safety Committee is planning a Safety Course to be held Saturday, March 23 2013. The course will be taught by the Coast Guard Auxiliary, with help from some of our members and ODNR Watercraft Enforcement. If the student passes a comprehensive test, the state requirements will be met for operating a boat. For people born after Jan 1, 1982 it is necessary to have this certificate of completion and carry it with you, while operating a water craft. It will be an all day affair at the Clubhouse at little or no cost to the students. All ages of students will be welcome. Come and sharpen your skills and knowledge of boating. The class will begin at 8:00 am sharp and possibly last till 5:00 pm. Lunch will be provided be the Association.

In order to plan for the written material needs and the lunch, please register by phone by 3/10/13. Call me at 440.563.4108 or Joe Palombi at 440.563.3399. Leave a message stating your name, phone number and the number of students you wish to enroll. We will call you back to verify, I’m a weekender so don’t panic if I don’t get back to you immediately.
