I’m guessing there are a few readers out there who would be Glee-ful about the idea of winning a pair of tickets to Idina Menzel’s concert at Clowes Hall June 24.


Just enter here and name your favorite witch (besides Menzel in “Wicked”).

I’ll pick one winner at random.

  • Favorite Witch
    Bette Midler - Hocus Pocus
  • My Fave
    Of course Margaret Hamilton's Wicked Witch of the West terrified me as a child, but the witch I most wanted to be was Samantha from Bewitched. If only I could have wiggled the nose just right...
  • Favorite Witch
    Julie Walters.. Molly Weasley in the Harry Potter series. Talented witch.. and even better mom :)
  • Witchiepoo
    Witchiepoo from H.R. Pufnstuf - can't do a little cause he can't do enough
  • Wicket Witch of the East Side
    It was Sister Rita 55 years ago at St John Gualbert's in Buffalo. She beat the crap out of kids who wrote left-handed--the devil's hand
  • Favorite Witch
    Samantha of Bewitched fame!
  • Favorite Witch
    Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West in the 1939 film version of the Wizard of Oz!

    Kristen Chenoweth as Glinda in Wicked
  • Margaret Hamilton
    But only bc I can't pick Idina!
  • Favorite Witch
    I have fallen under the spell of Elphaba in the book by Gregory Maguire. She's much more raunchy and spicy in the book. I especially love Elphaba's first words as a child, Horrors, giving the character her true colors. Both versions of the character are awesome!! If I had to choose another witch, I love Bernadette Peters as the Witch in "Into the Woods." =)
  • Witches Etc
    They're all so perfectly devious in a different way, but if I had to pick I'd be between Margaret Hamilton's classic Wicked Witch of the West and Bernadette Peter's Witch in "Into the Woods." Can't get enough of Children Will Listen.
  • Favorite Witch
    Minerva McGonagall, all the way.
  • Hey Lou, long time no see!!!!BERNADETTE PETERS!!!!
  • Fav Witch
    Elizabeth Montgomery on TV show Bewitched
  • Wicked Witches
    Okay, I won't say Menzel (since you won't let me).

    No wait, I can't help myself. She is an awesome Elphaba.
    • Fav Witch
      Samantha Stevens of Bewitched!
    • Glinda the good witch
      All the way back to the 1939 movie... Glinda asks Dorothy if she is a good witch. Or a bad witch. And she had the answer all the time "there's no place like home"
    • Favorite Witch
      Has to be Samantha(Elizabeth Montgomery) -- grew up trying to 'wiggle my nose' and all the practice couldn't make it work!

      Hermione in Harry Potter.
    • Which Witch?
      I still love the Wizard of Oz & listen to the sound track when traveling. Glenda was so beautiful and the 'other' (Margaret Hamilton) wicked witch so bad. I like them both.

      There are sooo many wonderful witches! I will go with my current fave - Regina from Once Upon A Time. So many dimensions.

      I'm convinced my cat Hazel is a witch. She seems to have the ability to knock things off walls without my seeing her doing it. She spends all day chasing flies ... to whip up spells, maybe? And I see her leaning over the toilet all the time. Must be her cauldron.

    1. Hiking blocks to an office after fighting traffic is not logical. Having office buildings around the loop, 465 and in cities in surrounding counties is logical. In other words, counties around Indianapolis need office buildings like Keystone, Meridian, Michigan Road/College Park and then no need to go downtown. Financial, legal, professional businesses don't need the downtown when Carmel, Fishers, North Indy are building their own central office buildings close to the professionals. The more Hamilton, Boone county attract professionals, the less downtown is relevant. Highrises have no meaning if they don't have adequate parking for professionals and clients. Great for show, but not exactly downtown Chicago, no lakefront, no river to speak of, and no view from highrises of lake Michigan and the magnificent mile. Indianapolis has no view.

    2. "The car count, THE SERIES, THE RACING, THE RATINGS, THE ATTENDANCE< AND THE MANAGEMENT, EVERY season is sub-par." ______________ You're welcome!

    3. that it actually looked a lot like Sato v Franchitti @Houston. And judging from Dario's marble mouthed presentation providing "color", I'd say that he still suffers from his Dallara inflicted head injury._______Considering that the Formula E cars weren't going that quickly at that exact moment, that was impressive air time. But I guess we shouldn't be surprised, as Dallara is the only car builder that needs an FAA certification for their cars. But flying Dallaras aren't new. Just ask Dan Wheldon.

    4. Does anyone know how and where I can get involved and included?

    5. While the data supporting the success of educating our preschoolers is significant, the method of reaching this age group should be multi-faceted. Getting business involved in support of early childhood education is needed. But the ways for businesses to be involved are not just giving money to programs and services. Corporations and businesses educating their own workforce in the importance of sending a child to kindergarten prepared to learn is an alternative way that needs to be addressed. Helping parents prepare their children for school and be involved is a proven method for success. However, many parents are not sure how to help their children. The public is often led to think that preschool education happens only in schools, daycare, or learning centers but parents and other family members along with pediatricians, librarians, museums, etc. are valuable resources in educating our youngsters. When parents are informed through work lunch hour workshops in educating a young child, website exposure to exceptional teaching ideas that illustrate how to encourage learning for fun, media input, and directed community focus on early childhood that is when a difference will be seen. As a society we all need to look outside the normal paths of educating and reaching preschoolers. It is when methods of involving the most important adult in a child's life - a parent, that real success in educating our future workers will occur. The website www.ifnotyouwho.org is free and illustrates activities that are research-based, easy to follow and fun! Businesses should be encouraging their workers to tackle this issue and this website makes it easy for parents to be involved. The focus of preschool education should be to inspire all the adults in a preschooler's life to be aware of what they can do to prepare a child for their future life. Fortunately we now know best practices to prepare a child for a successful start to school. Is the business community ready to be involved in educating preschoolers when it becomes more than a donation but a challenge to their own workers?
