In the days of quills and ink, people used words like "usurpation" and "magnanimity." Today, we say things like "LOL" — which many older Facebook users still think means "lots of love." (Example: "Sorry to hear about your cat, LOL.") Obviously, the English language could use a little TLC. So the Life Management Center is hosting the first Corporate Spelling Bee to benefit their literacy programs around the Lowcountry. "We wanted to do something that hadn’t been done in Charleston," Executive Director Mary Beth Dacey says. "We’re a nonprofit educational center, so we wanted it to reflect what we do." Corporations are sponsoring the three-member adult teams who will be judged by Mallory Factor, Douglas Gepford, and Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. The team with the most correctly spelled words will win the trophy, but the spirit award goes to the team with the loudest supporters. Pompoms, kazoos, and clackers will be provided at the door.
