Letter to the editor: Tiny flaw in a journalistic gem

I was pleased to see in the March 28 publication that the Addison Independent was named New England’s top weekly newspaper. I feel well informed by the various articles and appreciate all the work put in. However, on the same page I noticed that the word “loses” was misspelled in “County prosecutor looses law license.” You did catch the error on the web version.

Happy our little newspaper has been recognized for its excellence!

Editor’s note: Thank you for the praise, Donna, and for the sharp pair of eyes. We too were chagrined when we saw that the mistake had made it into print. The short explanation is that we caught the misspelling in our proofing process, but for reasons we don’t understand yet, our printer did not publish the corrected version of that page (and one other!). We published a little explanation of what happened online last week.
