Spellbound in the Custerplex

Letter from Hal Walter

Local lexicography – January 1997 – Colorado Central Magazine

Dear Ed,

Yes, Westcliffe’ Super Market is correct with no “s” after the Westcliffe’ and a space between “Super” and “Market”… some time we should do a column about errors in names and signs around here. For example: Westcliffe. Why the “e?” Why is Westcliffe one word and Silver Cliff two? Of course there’s always the “Westcliff School” chiseled in rock. Why does Jennings Market not have an apostrophe after “Jennings?” It takes major writing talent to be able to misspell all this stuff correctly.
