    Does the St. George news not know how to spell Toquerville? Every article involving our town is either labeled Leeds or LaVerkin. I just drove thru LaVerkin on my way home to Toquerville. Lights are on in LaVerkin and not in Toquerville. Maybe look at a Washington County map before you write your stories.
