Red Sox player Colton Durant got his first base hit against the Mets on Wednesday night in Brownville. With that base hit, Colton drove in 2 runs for the Red Sox; and the final score was Red Sox 10, Mets 5.
It should be added that the Mets had a TRIPLE play against the Red Sox team; there were 2 runners on; 1st and 2nd.....the batter popped one up to the second baseman.....infield fly rule came into affect; the 2nd baseman tagged the runner going from 1st to second base, then threw the ball back to second base and caught the other runner trying to get back on the bag......Great job Mets players.....and a good win for the Red Sox.
Red Sox player J.T. Kearns gets set for the pitch from the Mets pitcher Jesse McGlaughlin.
Red Sox outfielder Stephanie Vachon gets ready for the pitch from a Mets player..

Memories of a Brownville Junction Railroader
By Bill Sawtell
Starters were the same as the team of the year before: Larson, Morrill, Davis, Meulendyke, and Lockhart, with promising sophomores and freshmen to come.
The team went undefeated, beating Milo by double digits in the last game the two great rivals would ever play at the Town Hall in their first encounter of the season. It was remarked in The Town Crier that Carroll Conley was a gentleman to unload his bench and not pour it on to make things worse for Milo.
Then came the double overtime game at the Junction, won by Billy Davis's free throws 51-49.
Milo had a new coach, Roger Clapp. Charlie Hotham had left for Winthrop. What a scare Pete Webb and company threw into the Railroaders!
A harbinger of things to come.
During the 1963 tournament, I was shoveling snow on the extra gang in -30 degree weather in the yard at Brownville Junction. I remember the boys had trouble getting by Easton in an early round but made it to the finals against, you guessed it, Milo.
I rode to Bangor that fateful night in Brownville Junction sports history with my father, a school board member, forgetting that it's hard to beat a good team three times in a season. I wasn't the only one. The memories of 1959 were still with us.
Pete Webb and Pete Meulendyke almost played to a draw that night.
It was probably the work of young Steve Hamlin underneath that made the difference for Milo. He was solid. Milo 56, BJHS 51-a score I won't forget.
It was at this time that the Milo-Brownville Junction thing reached its apex, never to completely extinguish.

2nd Annual Pleasant River Duck Race Results
On June 19th, American Legion Post #92 in Brownville Jct hosted the 2nd Annual Pleasant River Duck Race and unlike NASCAR the race was held even though it was pouring rain. The race course is approximately 1/4 mile long with the Finish Line on the south side of the Green Bridge in Brownville Jct.
With a starting field of 370 ducks, there were no quack-ups although a few ducks did venture off the course and slip out of the groove. The winning ducks managed to make the run in record time and crossed the finish line in an amazing 35 minutes with the order of finish as follows: 1st Place $100.00 #569 Dale Stubbs, 2nd Place $75.00, #286 Hunter Hall, 3rd Place $50.00, #273 Bailey Weston.
The race is an annual event with the proceeds going to the American Legion Post #92 scholarship fund. This year’s race raised $301.00 after the purse moneys were paid out. We would like to thank everyone who adopted a duck for the race. We would also like to thank everyone involved in the selling of tickets, the numbering of ducks, merchants who allowed advertising flyers on their windows and bulletin boards, our camera people, the race officials and helpers who braved the rain to put on the race and retrieve the ducks after the race. Thanks to all from American Legion Post #92.

To the Editor:
First of all, I would like to congratulate you and your staff for the publication of the Three Rivers News. I always look forward to picking it up when I am in town taking my mother grocery shopping. I feel I can be up to date on what is going on in Milo as well as enjoy the many local articles.
I was wondering if you could place an ad in the paper for us. On July 3rd, our family (Trasks) is hosting an Alumni day breakfast at the Methodist church. The ad could read something like this---- The annual alumni day breakfast will be held at the Park St. U. Methodist Church on July 3rd from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. It will be hosted by the Trask family and the class of 1959. It will feature Dottie Trask's homemade baked beans and blueberry muffins, along with the usual eggs, ham, toast, juice and coffee. The tickets are $4.00 and the proceeds will go towards church activities. We hope you and your friends will join us to kick off the holiday week-end. ---- Thank you so much for this and all the good work you do!!!! Gayle (Trask) Kiernan, Winslow, ME, 04901
Gulf Hagas Hike
On June 16, the Penquis Valley High School Student Council hiked Gulf Hagas. For some this was a new adventure and for others it was just another walk in the park.
Advisors Justin Kelleher and Lynn Gerrish, along with nine students, met at the Brownville Junction ball field for the hike. The day couldn't have been more perfect. The sun was shining and there was a nice cool breeze. Students packed water, snacks and a lunch and the advisors were ready with first aid supplies, extra water, bug spray and sunscreen for the students. We were ready to go.
We accessed Gulf Hagas from the parking area between Hedgehog and KI checkpoints. This is when the real excitement began. We walked about .5 miles and then made our way through knee deep water across the Pleasant River (watch out for the slippery rocks). About another 1.5 miles and we were at Screw Auger Falls, where we stopped and took in the incredible view. We continued on to Buttermilk Falls where we had our picnic lunches and rested. After lunch, we headed back to Screw Auger Falls so the students could swim and for a few, jump into the pool below the falls.
We had a wonderful time and encourage others to hike into Gulf Hagas. The views are spectacular. If you are unfamiliar with the area, talk to someone who has hiked it before and purchase a trail map at the KI checkpoint. It was suggested that we carry a trail map, which we did, but veteran student hiker, Ryan Andrews, proved to be a great guide and the trail map was only used to look at mileage and the elevation we were heading in to.
Students participating in the hike included: Miranda McSwine, Liza Comeau, Kate Hamlin, Ben Faulkingham, Ian Carey, Heather Dolley, Ryan Andrews, Matt Ludden and Dillon Conley.
A Historical Review
When the Boys left 1917
Milo Town Crier, 10/22/1967
(Submitted by C.K. Ellison, 2004)
Milo, June 25  -- Practically the whole town turned out Tuesday morning to give the boys a royal send-off and flags were displayed all over town. The employees of industrial plants appeared at 7:30. The young men assembled on the island under the folds of Old Glory borne by A.E. Leonard, a veteran of the Civil War, where they were greeted with friendly handclasps by all who could get near enough to speak to them and they were presented with comfort kits by the ladies and the Red Cross. The Milo Military band rendered several patriotic selections after which Hon. M.L. Durgin spoke in brief as follows: "I have been asked to say a few words to these young men before they leave and it is with a degree of reluctance that I comply as all my life I have been reluctant to say the good-byes made necessary by circumstances. Duty however demands that we lay aside our sentiments and we do so for the benefit of our country and the human race.
I say to those of you who are starting off to the great conflict take this theme with you that your minds forge ahead to the homecoming when this demonstration will fade to insignificance beside the warm welcome you will receive when you come back. This is the time to be optimistic not pessimistic. You are going to help win the war, to plant this flag side by side with that of the allies where it will remain until the world comes into a heritage of sane democracy.
You who will have a part in that redemption, remember that we who cannot go will take care of those you leave behind you; are leaving a loyal people who will sustain you; people who will do 'their bit,' here at home for the great cause and you. If there is any man here within the sound of my voice who will not do his bit, he is one to be shunned and avoided as you would shun and avoid a leper.
We are either loyal or we are traitors; one could not be more traitorous than to refuse to do one's bit, one best for you who are leaving your homes today in the country's cause.
Boys, my boys, our boys we bid you God speed and may He who rules the universe protect you on your mission."
The band rendered another selection after which three rousing cheers and a "tiger" were given the boys and by autos you young men were taken to the junction [Derby] to join other comrades who were taking the train to Dover.
The boys leaving were Edward and George Ricker, William Reay, Dana J. Gould, Aubrey L. Gould, Charles L. Strout, William Livermore, J.L. Foss, Harry Karp, David R. Boober, Frank Strout, John L. Marshall, Stephen Young, W.L. Doble, George H. Durgin.
Many will leave Milo by auto at 5 a.m. Wednesday for Dover to participate in the send off given the boys of the County.
The Milo District Schools
By Lloyd J. Treworgy
Continued Part XIV
And now, having established more or less accurately the location of the first district 5 schoolhouse, let’s return to the town records.
School critics were apparently still undiscouraged by the categorical treatment they had received at the hands of voters, and they continued to ask for return of their school
tax money. More likely it was inconvenience, and the distance from schools that inconsiderate district lines had laid on some, than criticism of the quality of schooling itself that loaded the town warrant at times with requests to draw one’s proportion of school money and school one’s children elsewhere. However, that may be, the requests continued to come in.
At the April 3 , 1837 town meeting voters denied the proposal “of Elliot Staples to be set off as a school district by himself (!), or to receive his proportion of school money.”
And from this point on we encounter a strange, complete reversal of policy by the town. Every single subsequent application for withdrawal of one’s proportion of school money was granted! And those applications were rather numerous!
We’ll return to this unexplained reversal of policy later on in this story.
Now I must tell you about Milo’s public lands; write a possible explanation of why public support of the schools wavered from $250 in 1828 down to $75 in 1829 and 1830 and then back up to $150 in 1831; name an official board known by three different appellations and take note of a ghost that once a year, without fail, passes through the town office and then back to its grave!
Back in the early days of the nation, especially in the northeast, when a township was laid out, a section of it was left in lands reserved for public use, more especially for the support of schools and of the ministry. These public lands (I got this information from Roy Monroe) amounted, in Milo, and presumably elsewhere, to 1280 acres. They were divided into four separate parcels here of 320 acres each. Revenue from half was dedicated to the support of the ministry, one quarter to the support of schools and one quarter for the use of the state.
In unorganized townships these lands couldn’t be sold; in organized townships, like Milo, they could be sold but all profits from the sale had to be devoted to the purposes intended the ministry, the schools and the state.
I don’t know where Milo’s public lands, in their entirety, lay. Some of them were on the back Brownville road; some were around Stanchfield Ridge. Whereabouts of the rest I didn’t seek out since it wasn’t pertinent to this story.
The agency set up to have custody of these lands and of the revenue to be derived from them was composed of the Board of Selectmen, the town treasurer and the town clerk. This information is from the book of the clerk of that board from the years 1842 to 1875 which is in the town office.
The board is spoken of, in the records of town meetings, sometimes as the Trustees of School Funds; at other times as the Board of Trust of School Funds. In the town treasurer’s records it is know as the Trustees of Ministerial and School Funds.
The fact that revenue did come from the public lands could explain why the item for support of schools to be raised at town meeting went from $250, back to $75, in two successive years and then back to $150. The town’s appropriation could have been supplemented by revenues from public lands. The records do nothing to clarify this.
We do know: (1) that revenue came from the public lands; and (2) that the Trustees of School Funds had money in its custody.
Two articles in the 1837 town warrant make these assumptions conclusive.
The first article read: “To see if the said inhabitants (i.e., the voters) will authorize the treasurer to give a note to the Trustees of School Funds for two hundred dollars, borrowed to pay debts last year.” This article was approved.
The second article read: “To see if said inhabitants will authorize the Trustees of School Funds to leave grass and timber on the public lots and collect dues for grass and lumber cut heretofore.” This also was approved.
If the Board of Trust of School Funds did supplement what the town raised for schools, with revenue in its custody from public lands, then it is clear that the board held a certain surplus otherwise it could not have loaned the town two hundred dollars out of this fund.
This loan was apparently the subject of an obscure article in the warrant and an equally obscure vote at a special town meeting on October 3, 1842.
This was the article: “To see what instructions the town will give the Board of Trustees in relation to the school funds.”
And the vote was “To instruct the Board of Trustees to do their duty.”
This item of two hundred dollars, loaned to the town, evidently in 1836, surfaced again at a special meeting, September 10, 1849, thirteen years after the loan was made.
At this meeting the article was “To see if the town will authorize the treasurer to give a nod to the Trustees of School Funds for money used by the town, belonging to said school fund, dating back to the time when said money was used by the town; and further authorize the treasurer to pay interest to school fund from November 1st, 1847 (eleven years after the money was borrowed). The article was approved.
Six weeks later, November 28, this long overdue repayment of the two hundred dollars belonging to the school funds came up again before the conscience of the town at a special town meeting. The article read: “To see what instructions the town will give the town treasurer in relation to money used by the town, belonging to the school fund.”
The vote was to pass over the article. That was the last time in the records that I noticed any mention of that two hundred dollar loan.
This is by no means to charge the long-since-dead members of the Board of Trust of School Funds with dishonesty. If they were guilty of anything meriting reproof, it was their half-hearted dedication to preserving these funds for the use intended. It was no doubt a common failing in many towns besides Milo, pressed for money to meet its obligations, to eye these school (and ministerial?) funds as a possible help to ease the town out of some difficult situation.
Kathy is taking a much-needed vacation. “Traditions of A Milo-ite” will resume soon!

KITCHEN QUEEN RETIRES
Connie Clement, one of the original kitchen queens, said a final goodbye to the staff and students of Penquis on Friday, June 11th.
A dinner celebration was held at the Hitching Post Bed & Breakfast on Monday in her honor. Ginny and her staff thanked Connie for her long time commitment to M.S.A.D. #41 and presented her with a very special "potted" plant.
It won't be the same up in “Bakerville” without Connie, but she's passed on all her little cooking secrets to Linda so she will have to take over the bread making.
Happy Retirement and best wishes Connie......Love all the girls!
Connie bids farewell to the M.S.A.D.#41 staff.
Connie was presented with a wonderful ice cream cake made by Susan Mulherin.
Ginny and Connie share a special moment at the retirement party.

Well, the Discover New Trails @ Your Library summer reading program has begun officially this week. We were very busy Monday with lots of new children signing up, and those who had signed up the previous week coming in to continue the program. On Wednesday we were busy again with the Monday children returning to give us their list of books read, get stars and go down to Story Time where Kathy Dixon-Wallace read to 14 children and 6 adults. Thank you, Kathy. Summer reading program members are quite excited about Traveler, our horse mascot, and many enjoy patting him each time they come into the library. Many of our adult patrons have also comment on what a handsome horse he is. Every child in the program has a chance to win our mascot simply by signing up each week It is never too late to sign up for the program, but the sooner you bring your child into the library, the longer they will enjoy an exciting summer of reading.
Last week as I was typing this column on the computer, Tracy Morse came into the library with a great number of juvenile paperbacks in two popular series. She brought in several of the Junie B. Jones series, augmenting our hard cover set, and also brought in quite a few of the Mary Pope Osborne Magic Treehouse series. I had been asked about this series and had just received four new titles-Christmas in Camelot, Haunted Castle on Halloween Eve, High Tide in Hawaii, and Summer of the Sea Serpent. With Tracy’s additions we have a nice selection of this series. Thank you, Tracy.
I will now list the single juvenile titles we have recently acquired.

David Chase and Company won the Brownville Rec. Co-Ed 1st annual softball tournament. The team played 4 games and went undefeated for the tournament. It was a long, but fun day......and I can assure you that there were some sore people on Sunday morning. There were a total of 7 teams involved in the tournament with double elimination.
Teams played on both fields and the weather actually held off for the entire day. A big thank you goes out to the Brownville Rec. Committee and Dean Bellatty for doing such a great job. Win or Lose.....everyone enjoyed themselves.
Members of the Brownville Rec. Commission have been very busy this summer. This picture was taken at the Co-Ed Softball tournament while some of the members worked in the Snack Shack. Pictured here are Stacey Slagle, Lynn Kearns and Rusty Lawson. Profits from the snack shack benefit recreation programs.
