John and Barbara DiCentes, husband and wife and life-long residents of Millinocket, Maine, spend an afternoon together in the backyard, just blocks away from the now-closed paper mill, on Saturday, June 21, 2014. John DiCentes is a third-generation paper mill worker, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. The 75-year-old retiree and former machinists' union president worked at the local paper mill from 1955 to 1994. The collapse of the paper industry has left thousands of area residents unemployed and has created a budgetary crisis for the town government, leaving schools, libraries, and emergency services underfunded. On Thursday, June 19, parts and machinery from the mill, including the paper machine, were auctioned off to settle tax debts.
