Milo now on World Wide Web

Article from The Piscataquis Observer, Vol. 166, No. 33, August 18, 2004

MILO The town of Milo is now on the Web.

Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, those browsing the Internet can check out what's happening on Main Street, Milo, from a live Web camera.

The camera, sponsored by the Three Rivers Community Web site and Fred Trask of Trask Insurance Co., can be viewed at

The Axis Outdoor Networking Camera is perched atop Trask Insurance Co., 3 Main St. It refreshes every five seconds, giving viewers updated shots of cars and pedestrians traveling downtown.

According to Isabel Warren, TRC treasurer and news/development coordinator, the idea to put Milo on the World Wide Web came from Seth Barden, TRC director and Webmaster. "Seth wanted one from the get-go," said Warren.

The Three Rivers Community of Maine Web site started as the Our Town Project at Penquis Valley High School in 1996. The non-profit organization's Web site features information on the communities of Milo, Brownville, LaGrange, Sebec, Atkinson, Lakeview Plantation, Medford and neighboring unorganized townships. It also includes the Three Rivers Kiwanis News, a project of the Three Rivers Kiwanis.
