The ceremony will conclude with the playing of Taps by Kennett High School Bugler, Finn Nuseaum.

The Mount Washington Cog Railway could become a Lego Toy. Someone created and submitted a design of the Nationally Historic Train to the Lego Ideas project. The design features the Peppersass and the Moosilauke steam engine. The Moosilauke engine is even designed so that cogs and wheels connect allowing the train to move when pushed. If the idea gets enough votes on the Lego Ideas website then it may become a real Lego Toy. The creator hopes to get the toy created to celebrate the Cog’s 150th.

If you lost Internet this morning you were not alone. States across the nation were reporting time Warner customers having no Internet. A map of The nation wide internet outage for Time Warner Cable Customers shows states along the west coast, east coast and states along the south of the country without internet.
