literaq^ Council Spelling Bee
On Friday, October 19, the Carteret County Literacy Council held its annual spelling bee, hosted by Skip Waters, at the His
tory Place in Morehead City After weeks of studying, Mariana Goldstein, Janie Price and Susan Toms— Team Country Club of
the Crystal Coast (CCCC)—spelled their way to second place in the competition.
The Literacy Council is an organization that matches volunteers with county residents who need support and assistance to
increase reading and mathematics skills, enabling them to secure better jobs, obtain high school diplomas and enjoy a bet
ter quality of life. The annual spelling bee is the Literacy Councils major fundraiser. Proceeds go to buy materials and provide
volunteer training to support the local literacy prograin.
While CCCC team members took second place in the bee, their club supporters, who cheered them on, gained them first
place as the most spirited team at the event. Support was such that CCCC earned the Spirit Stick, a traveling trophy awarded
each year for the team displaying the most spirit. Well deserved congratulations are in order!

At first glance, Aiden Snavely may
not be distinguishable for his ac
complishments from any other seven
year old. He’s a bright young boy from
Newport with a contagious smile and
big, hazel eyes. Aiden is quite friendly
and personable, with proud parents
and a younger sister who support and
encourage him. He goes to school,
plays soccer and enjoys playing games
with his friends. If not for the martial
arts uniform he wears to class, it might
be hard to imagine him as a black belt.
