Give me a break!

After reading what's in the image above and meeting Marnie Scanlan, are you thinking, 'Hey, there's nothing wrong here'? If so, good for you. On its own, the above paragraph - from "Cyclist gets $200,000 for pothole mishap" on Yahoo! Canada News on May 21, 2011 - is fine. But,

three paragraphs later, Marnie's last name has had a D added to the end. I don't know which spelling is correct, and I don't care; apparently the same goes for the Yahoo! writer. Additionally, breaks should be brakes (that's a ridiculous homophonic error!) and kilometers should be kilometres (that's the Canadian way!). Click an image to enlarge it.
