Painter misspells town's name on tower

A painter working on a Wisconsin water tower left behind one big typo. The mistake had Stoughton residents scratching their heads. The new paint job had the town's name without the second T. It was spelled "S-T-O-U-G-H-O-N," rather than "S-T-O-U-G-H-T-O-N."

It turns out a painter from Neumann Co. in Romeoville, Ill., had the correct information but simply forgot the second T when painting the 6-foot letters.

And the name was spelled right on one side of the tower. It's just the side facing town that's wrong.

Painter Mike Sandmire says it was the first time he had made such an error. He added that it would be easily fixed with a new coat of paint.
