We've known for awhile that Iola's Cara Wicoff can spell. And she's done it again. On Saturday, Wicoff won the Great Bend Tribune's 2012 Sunflower Spelling Bee and advances to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington DC. In the twelfth round, Wicoff correctly spelled "woad," a plant in the mustard family, and then won the bee after Johnson County’s Michael Wilson tripped on "olid." Wicoff got that one right and then correctly spelled "toadyism" to win. That's the act of being a flatterer or toady, and olid means foul-spelling. Wicoff is methodic in the way she does it. She asks for the definition, language of origin or alternate pronunciations, repeats the word out loud and traces it on the palm of her hand with a finger. As an eighth grader, this is Wicoff's last year of eligibility.
