Tom Folsom, an assistant Little League coach in Millinocket, Maine, tends to his players during the league championship series on Saturday, June 21, 2014. Folsom, who now works in an IT job out of town and only returns home to Millinocket on the weekends, worked at the now-shuttered paper mill for 27 years before being laid off in 2003. 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.
