In last week’s Hudson~Litchfield News in a photo regarding the new plants at the intersection of Central Street and Lowell Road, one of the Hudson Highway Department worker’s names was mis- identified and should have been listed as “Bubba Daigle,” not “Bibba Daigle,” and certainly not to be confused with Big Baby Daigle or Botty Daigle. We regret the name change. You can always call him Bruce, which is his real name.
