MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's capital city is saying merci to France for a spelling error on some soccer jerseys.

The city manager in Montpelier (mahnt-PEEL'-yuhr), Vermont, says Montpellier (mahn-peel'-YAY'), France, ordered jerseys for its professional soccer team and fans, but they came in misspelled, with just one L instead of two.
