Here's the February, 2018 edition of Today River Valley

In this edition:

The story of the challenges facing public access television channels. These are the local channels found on cable tv on which local events such as town government meetings and local high school sports appear. The federal government required the cable companies to offer these channels to local communities and there are now 72 in Maine. But the cable company recently yanked all the premium, low number channel locations from the PEG channels and relegated them to a previously non-existent and hard to find section in the 1300's. Will people still watch the channels, now that they're hard to find? The PEG channel staffers aren't sure and want their low number locations back.
