I've noticed, all my reading lifetime, misspelling, incorrect word division, and/or fractured composition in all types of published news stories. If 'Oakdale Patch' wants readers to trust their news stories, more attention to proof reading could help; unless, of course: the Aug-18 fishing 'polls' were actually statistical reports on fish, or the Aug-19 stolen car 'sterio' is a new kind of stereo. I hope Oakdale Patch stories aren't aiming for The Tonight Show 'Headlines' segment!
