Mark Lyon was elected Nov. 5 to a two-year term as first selectman in Washington, rather than four as stated in the Nov. 8 edition.

Four-year terms for selectmen and some other town offices will begin following the 2015 election.

Theresa Palmer is the daughter of Tony Allegretti, a handcycling marathoner who was the subject of a Spectrum story in its Nov. 8 edition.

The Spectrum apologies for its errors.
