"NUMISMATIST" WINS SPELLING BEE

Congratulations to student Isabel Jacobson, who triumphed
at a recent Wisconsin spelling bee by correctly spelling
the name of our hobby.

"Her win at the Madison All-City Spelling Bee on Saturday
was her third straight, making her the first competitor
since at least 1968 to accomplish the feat.

It was "numismatist" - another word for a coin collector -
that allowed the 13-year-old O'Keeffe Middle School student
to walk out of the Monona Grove High School auditorium with
the Ketterer Trophy for the third time. It will be displayed
at her school.

She also won a $100 gift certificate to Borders."
