Zombies, butchers and punk rockers were among the characters who battled for the title of Forsyth County’s best adult spellers. On Tuesday night at the Lanier Technical College Forsyth Conference Center, 11 teams, most sporting elaborate costumes, took part in Spell Check Live! 2012.The annual bee is the primary annual fundraiser of Literacy Forsyth, a program that works in conjunction with Lanier Tech to provide adult education classes for those in need.
