The video above features a peak at Scott Humston’s magic room. Scott was the subject of a recent “Florida On A Tankful” on the News 13 website which features things to do in Florida for locals.

Racine’s Alyssa Bohm, daughter of magician Bob Bohm, was made Miss Wisconsin in 2019. It has been announced in the Journal-Times she will, due to Covid-19 cancelling this year’s event, continue her reign through the next year.

The fourth auction featuring the magic collection of Jim Rawlins is scheduled for July 25 at Potter and Potter. You can download a catalog and learn more about bidding (live and absentee) on their website.

Finally, if you have read iTricks for a while you are probably aware that I am a “DC guy” (the comics, not the city) and my favorite magic wielding character of all time is the lovely and talented Zatanaa, the daughter of stage magician and supernatural magician John Zatara (the guy who taught Bruce Wayne sleight of hand and escapology). CBR.com says Warner Brothers is moving ahead with a live action movie starring the supernatural stage magician, which could bring some real stage magic to the silver screen and some more young ladies interested in magic!

Happy 4th Of July
