Local improv comedy troupe celebrates anniversary

BREWER The Focus Group has become one of the area's entertainment mainstays over the past few years, with shows ranging from monthly appearances at their home base at the Next Generation Theatre in Brewer to gigs at venues all over the region and the state.

BANGOR, Maine - Michael Fern, the publisher of The Maine Edge, recently announced that he is in serious negotiations to sell the publication to a firm in Boston.

The local arts and entertainment weekly has been in print since 2006, and it is uncertain what will happen to the current employees.
"It was a difficult decision, but one that I ultimately needed to consider," said Fern. "Due to the current economic climate, things have been challenging."
