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!

Richard Graves Sr., Post 41 adjutant/finance officer • October 18, 2018
Many times we are asked “what does the American Legion do?,” “why should I belong?,” and “what’s in it for me?” These questions hang out there because we do a poor job to telling our story. To answer the first question, the American Legion is the largest veterans service organization in the United States standing on four pillars of service — veterans affairs & rehabilitation, national security, Americanism, and children & youth.
That said, on the local level Post 41 maintains a post home at 18 West Main Street in Milo (943-9198) and has several members who can assist veterans, widows, and next of kin in obtaining discharge records and placing them in contact with the Department of Maine Service Officers who will assist in seeking veterans benefits and information, they do not need to be American Legion members.

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.
