CINCINNATI -- It's time for the Scripps Regional Spelling Bee! We're warming up here in the newsroom.

In our own spelling bee, John Matarese takes the hardware, wordsmith Kathrine Nero is a very close second and the rest of us are thankful for spell-check! Watch the video in the player above.

The 2016 edition of the Regional Spelling Bee kicks off at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. Ohio's round is first at 9 a.m., while the Indiana and Kentucky round begins at 2 p.m.
