Yearbook misspells school’s name on cover

MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — Students who worked on the Moorhead High School yearbook this year have learned a hard lesson about proofreading, after misspelling the Minnesota school’s name on the front cover.

A Forum News Service report says the 2013 yearbook arrived this week with the school’s name spelled “Moorehead.”

Moorhead school officials say the mistake slipped past an adviser and two classes of students who worked on it during the school year. They finalized it after graduation and sent it to be printed this summer.

The district can’t afford to reprint the yearbooks. Principal Dave Lawrence says one option is to use a high-quality adhesive label to cover the mistake.

District spokeswoman Pam Gibb says people feel very bad about what happened.

The yearbook’s title is “Moments Fade, But Memories Stay.”

    Jim Antonen, who served Davis for a short time as our city manager, came here from Moorhead Minnesota. All I know about his time in Moorhead is that it was the site of a huge riot which allegedly was about a racial-ethnic divide between whites on one side and Latinos on the other. After the Davis City Council fired Antonen, they handed him a golden parachute. He was paid his full salary, without doing any work, long enough so that he would qualify for a CalPERS pension. And on top of that, we have paid for his medical care and his wife's ever since. Yet Antonen, while taking his lifetime pension and free medical, worked up until a few months ago as they city manager of another Minnesota town, called Maplewood. I suppose he will get a Minnesota pension on top of his PERS pension. Not bad for a guy who seemed to have little ability to do the job of running Davis.

    What does the Rifkin comment have to do with the subject of the article? Also, maybe the misspelling was not an error!

    i met Jim after he first arrived from the midwest. I told him he apparently did not do very good due deligence regarding City of Davis as the Midwest is known for hard work, pragmatic views and honest dialog. I said after awhile you will realize there are about fifty people in Davis that control the city and are only interested in 'feel good' ideas and being politically correct. I can not recall if that was before or after they ran off the new Chief of Police. But congratulations to Jim that he is receiving pension that is over the top for all city gov employees

    Mr. Rifkin's comments constitute everything that is wrong and abhorrent with such media threads to a news item. The comments are off topic, inflammatory, and vitriolic in tenor, tone, and intent. One expects more from someone who at times contributes to this very news source as a columnist. At best these comments are bad form. At worse, these comments represent someone preoccupied with certain prescribed agendas that border on untenable obsessions.

    My comments, made in my own name, bear entirely on the place of this story, Moorhead, MN. That city is relevant to Davis for the reasons I mentioned. Moreover, every comment I made is true. By contrast, MBS hides behind an anonymous name and makes a personal attack on me, because he is afraid to use his real name, and he had nothing to add to a discussion other than a personal attack. And he adds, shamefully, that my comment is what is wrong with commenting on a story? Wow. What chutzpuh.

    This story is about a yearbook and its misspelling the name of the city on its front cover. It is not about the city or people who lived there and happened to be an employee of the city of Davis. I see no connection whatsoever to the story and your comments.
