Newburgh Student Gets ‘Burgoo’ in Nat’l Spelling Bee First Round
I've always said that I don't expect folks who aren't from Kentucky, and especially Daviess County, to like mutton or burgoo.
Non-natives HAVE been known to surprise me, but, for the most part, my theory holds up.

How exciting is it that we have a representative from the tri-state on that big stage?
Way to go, Pranav, and good luck!
