From an Article in Last Saturday's Omaha World Herald
Spelling Bee at Creighton March 14, sponsored by Omaha World Herald
Sixth-grader wins OPS spelling bee

When Nick Tuma was 3 years old, he would read anything he could find. First it was the dictionary. Then cereal boxes and the Yellow Pages.

By age 4, he could read "Charlotte's Webb" and "Stuart Little," his mother recalled.

Nick, now 12, won the Omaha Public Schools spelling bee on Saturday. His parents say all that reading made the difference.

The sixth-grader at Chandler View Elementary correctly spelled words such as "benevolent," "vivisection," "geta" and "filibuster." The final word was "regime."

Nick, clad in jeans, glasses and a Chandler View Cougars shirt, won the trophy as his parents, Rita and David Tuma, watched in the crowd.

He was excited to win. "I was a little nervous," he said.

Rita Tuma said the family is very proud.

"He's only in sixth grade," she said. "Usually an eighth-grader wins."

In the weeks ahead of the competition, mother and son studied nightly. Nick likes to visit www.spellingbee.com for practice.

Nick was one of 38 spellers who competed Saturday at the Teacher Administrative Center. He advances to next month's Midwest Spelling Bee at Creighton University. The March 14 event is sponsored by The World-Herald. ,

Louisville Community
  Spelling Bee Challenge

So, you think you can spell? Why not match your skills with the finest spellers this side of the Platte River? BUILD is hosting it’s first ever community wide Spelling Bee challenge. Teams of 4 will face off against one another in a tournament format until only one is left standing. The winning team’s reward: They have just “earned” the opportunity to challenge Louisville High School’s finest spellers for all the fame and glory that comes with winning the Spelling Bee Challenge.

Get your team of four together, bring your lucky dictionary, and join us on April 3rd in the Louisville School “Old Gym” for a great community event.

For those who are a little leery of spelling in front of the entire community, don’t fret it. We will be adding a nice little spin on traditional spelling bees by incorporating help from the audience and your team mates. This is all about fun and Community Spirit keeping alive the fun we had with the Louisville Trivia Challenge

From the Editor
A Land Called Otoe
Groundhog Capital of Nebraska

We are Leaving Cass County!

well, at least for a few hours..

I am excited about the invitation that we received!

We created the Nebraska Community Websites Project , with a mission to create small Community  websites state wide. Well..

We are not even done with Cass County yet!

still gotta get down to Nehawka!

As any small, (very small), business owner will tell you planning to do something, and executing that plan is not the same.

Working in Cass County is comfortable, and familiar. The new Eagle website, and the soon to be new Weeping Water website are pretty much, standard operation procedure.

But Wow, this evening we will meet with a Village beyond our borders. I hope they speak Nebraska

I am a little anxious, but I'm confident that all will go well.

The goal is the same, we want to make sure that their Community can put out the welcome mat, and show the world, (and especially its own folks) everything that is going on and all the great things about Life in Small town Nebraska.

As I step out of the car this evening I will be thinking..

"That is One Small Step for a Man,

One Giant Leap for a Groundhog.."
