Yearbook tip: Don't rely on spell checker

A computerized spell-checker run amok christened several Dauphin County high school students with new last names in their yearbooks.

Middletown Area High School's yearbook listed Max Zupanovic as "Max Supernova," Kathy Carbaugh as "Kathy Airbag," and Alessandra Ippolito as "Alexandria Impolite," just to name a few.

Ippolito says the mistakes were "kind of funny, but kind of rude at the same time."

Yearbook co-editor Amanda Gummo says the mistakes were found on four of the yearbook's 176 pages, which featured the band, chorus and student council.

Ed Patrick of Taylor Publishing says his company takes responsibility for the errors and will provide free stickers printed with the correct names.
