MILO — More than a year ago residents accepted the conveyance of the approximate 97-acre Derby Shops commercial railroad property on B&A Avenue. Citizens attending the June 2016 special town meeting also authorized the selectmen to apply for and accept any grants for cleaning up the property, which is the home of Central Maine & Quebec Railway and had been a part of the bankruptcy proceedings for the former Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway.

Town officials are now in the process of applying for funding to help clean up the site, and a public hearing on the proposed remediation to make the property more suited for economic development was held at the town hall on Sept. 6... Read More

What’s Been Going On?

            The Society held its final meeting for 2017 on September 19th.

            Within the next few weeks there will be a new HEAT PUMP  installed at the museum!  Thanks to all who donated to this cause! This will allow us to continue our work well into the fall!

            We continue to document all the items in the museum with a program called PastPerfect. This is tedious and ongoing work but it is important to know just what we have and where it is located in the museum. It will make it easier to meet the needs of people looking for specific information in the future.

MEDFORD, Maine (WABI) Wardens will lead a large scale organized search on Sunday for a woman from Medford who's been missing since November.

71-year-old Diana Estey was last seen on Halloween.....her disappearance remains a mystery.

We're told Estey lived alone and her car was found in her driveway.

If you'd like to volunteer for the search, wardens ask that you be physically fit, wear long pants and a long sleeve light or heavy shirt, and bring hiking boots or rubber boots.

You'll need to bring food and water for your own needs.

Searchers will gather at the Medford Town Office between 7:30 and 9 Sunday morning.

MILO — The resignation of Penquis Valley High School/Middle School Principal Jeremy Bousquet was accepted and the nomination of new building principal Daniel Ross was accepted during a Sept. 6 meeting of the SAD 41 school board.

“I called him one afternoon about three and a half years ago when we didn’t have a principal,” Wright said, as at the time Bousquet took his first... Read More
