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!

Brownville Elementary Art Classes

In art classes the last couple of weeks the 4th grade students all had a hand in painting the different parts to this mural. The message is powerful! A great message for our Brownville Bear family. 

In case the colors are hard to distinguish it reads:
Some kids are smarter than you. Some kids have cooler clothes than you. Some kids are better at sports than you. It doesn’t matter. 

Be the kid who can get along. 
Be the kid who is generous
Be the kid who does the right thing. 
Be the kid who is happy for others. Be the nice kid.

Why the heck did Bissell Brothers Brewing — arguably Portland’s buzziest, busiest, most-poised-to-explode craft brewery — just open its second location in Milo, in the north woods, population 2,000ish and shrinking? At the main brewery and taproom at Thompson’s Point, fans routinely line up hours early for much-hyped can releases of Bissell’s hoppy, hazy New England–style IPAs. Since 2013, when it was founded by brothers Noah and Peter Bissell, the brewery has gone from turning out 550 to 8,000 barrels a year, making it the state’s sixth-largest brewery by volume. A second location seemed imminent. But, um, Milo?

“We just knew that if we were going to do another brewery, it had to be in our hometown,” Peter explained recently, walking around what’s now known as Bissell Brothers Three Rivers. A former snowmobile shop, the new space has a vaulted ceiling crisscrossed by strands of bistro lights, graffitied walls, and a metal-frame loft for extra seating. Spruce Mill... Read More
