The TRC Webcams Need Your Help!

Submitted by Sethen on September 9, 2018 - 4:02pm

The TRC Webcam server was recently struck with some nasty ransomware.  Our Webcam Guy has spent numerous hours rebuilding the server from scratch, and all the webcams are now back up and running.  

We are looking for any and all donatinos to help with the costs of this, and the normal upkeep of the 20+ live webcams we have here on the site.

TRC hopes to continue bringing these webcams to the world for years to come, but we need your help!

All donations go towards upkeep and maintenance of the webcams!

SAD 41 officials mulling options for Penquis Valley facilities

MILO — In May a referendum on an approximate $2.3 million funding package for a heating system upgrade, converting from steam to hot water, and energy efficiency project at the Penquis Valley School was voted down via a count of 166 to 111 across the four SAD 41 communities. In the months since district officials have been discussing what to do next, including at the Oct. 3 meeting.

“There’s a bit of a conundrum in regards to Atkinson,” Superintendent Michael Wright said. “In the other three towns it was supported two to one, in Atkinson it was voted down 114 to 5,” he said this result led to the 166-111 referendum result. The combined tally between Brownville, LaGrange, and Milo was 106 yes votes to 42 no votes.

“We would like to do something next summer but if Atkinson votes to withdraw they are still part of this district through June 30,” Wright said. He said Atkinson would be responsible for 10.4 percent of project cost debt if any upgrades are approved while the community is still part of SAD 41.

B-BJ Historical Society Holds Last Meeting of 2018

Submitted by Susan Worcester on September 28, 2018 - 2:54pm

              The final meeting of 2018 was held at the museum with seven members and one guest attending. The treasurer’s report indicated that all bills are paid and that we have just over $3000 in the book account. Ken Hatchette’s books continue to be sold through Amazon, at Simple Sacks, at the new Visitors’ Center in Milo and through the museum. It was decided that when the bathroom renovation takes place next spring that funds from this account will be used to complete that project. 

            Our volunteers have been busy this summer. Documentation of each and every item in the museum continues. The Veterans’ display has been updated. We have cleaned out a number of drawers that have not been looked at in many years. We are keeping all items that relate to Brownville and can be identified as such and items that belong to some other community are being sent there whenever possible. We do have many, many photos that are so old that the people in them cannot be identified. More than likely those will be discarded next... Read More
