'County' misspelled on 10,000 trash bins in Alabama town

PRICHARD, Ala. (AP) — Some spelling mistakes are tough to see, but that doesn't include the one that was made on 10,000 trash bins in an Alabama city.

Prichard Mayor Jimmie Gardner told WPMI-TV the city's public works department had the duty of making sure the writing on the cans was spelled correctly.
