“Well as true Mainers if we didn’t have black flies I don’t think we’d exist, and what better place to be on a day like today,” said Brenda Martin, Milo resident.

When the month of June rolls around there is usually one thing on everyone’s mind, the beginning of summer. And in Milo, the beginning of summer brings their favorite celebration, The Black Fly Festival.

“We’re celebrating the black flies so, and there’s definitely plenty of them,” said Ricky Bradeen, co-organizer. “There not too too bad today, but boys they sure have been. I think everybody by now’s had enough of them, because they’ve been pretty bad up here as I’d imagine they are other places.”

Put on by the Milo Events Committee, the theme of the 20-17 event, “remembering the 50’s.” Over 45 vendors... Read More

LAGRANGE — On Tuesday, June 13 residents of the SAD 41 communities of Atkinson, Brownville, LaGrange and Milo will be voting on an approximate $474,000 loan from the state’s school revolving renovation fund for sprinkler and elevator system upgrades at the Penquis Valley School. Under the program the state would cover 70 percent of the costs, meaning a little more than $142,000 would be paid back by the district over five years at zero percent interest.

During a public hearing on May 23 at the Marion C. Cook School, Superintendent Michael Wright said a decade ago SAD 41 participated in the school revolving renovation fund for a $1 million roof project at Penquis Valley. He said SAD 41 only had to cover $300,000 of the work, and this amount was paid back over 10 years at the zero... Read More
