When she wasn’t illustrating Sunday School handouts for children, Gretchen Pritchard combed the New Haven Independent stories—and emerged as the latest Independent typo-catching champ.

Pritchard (pictured), of Beaver Hills, caught 90 typos in under four months, blowing away her competition in the latest contest to catch the most typos in Independent stories.

Asked the secret to her success, she declared herself a “proofreader by nature.” She picked up her prize, a New Haven Independent coffee mug, at the Independent’s office Friday.

A new contest round has begun: click here to submit a typo and join the race.

I should have combed my hair.

Next the Independent will claim that they planted all those typos just to have a contest!
