Great Work Jonathan...lucky number 27

It is very exciting that a young man from Cornwall, PEI has made it this far in the National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. and I'm sure he has worked very hard in doing so, but I would guess that in the background there has been a lot help from his parents, friends, teachers and his sponsor, the Charlottetown Guardian. Keep up the great work Jonathan as you should be very proud to even get to this amazing level. When I was younger, Frank Maholovich was # 27 for the Leafs and he was my favourite player and when he moved to the Canadians and took the number with him I couldn't believe how "lucky" I was that he left the Leafs. Since then I have always considered # 27 as my lucky number and I see this is the number they have given Jonathon and I hope it is as good to him as its been to me. To see Jonathon's results go to
Best of Luck Jonathon.
