The Three Rivers News premiered online 20 years ago!
|THREE RIVERS NEWS IS NOW ONLINE!
BY VALERIE ROBERTSON Thanks to the efforts of Seth Barden and Tom Witham, the Three Rivers News can now be read worldwide! By going to Milo’s website, WWW.TRCMAINE.ORG, the weekly newspaper can be read from any computer that is hooked to the Internet. And people are reading it!
The Trcmaine website has been up and running for five years. Seth and Tom designed and built the website to enter a contest and won. The site was updated recently by the two men and is a wonderful, informative way for area folks and those from away to keep up on local happenings and events. The site has received e-mails from as far away as Japan! Here is a sampling of the comments received:To: <[email protected]>

To all the people that put this together (the newspaper), very nice. I will look forward to it each week. I am sure I may be able to help out. Feel free to contact me.

What a wonderful website!! I’ve been mesmerized reading all of the news. I can’t get over the size of the newsletter. So wonderfully “small town”. I read every word of every column and loved it (except the part where Stearns got beat). A great undertaking if I ever saw one!! Loved your contribution too. Kudos to Three Rivers Community!!
