Written by Katy England

Obstacle challenge to spark interest in careers in first response

He wanted to do something about it something that would be fun, attract young people and give them a taste of what these careers and volunteer opportunities can offer. He came up with the Emergency Services Challenge: Run For Your Life, which will be held at the Camden Snow Bowl on May 24.

Saved or Suspended?

Written by Kaitlyn Furge

The future of UMA's Vet Tech program 

Competent care matters. That is the slogan blazed across Save Vet Tech's Facebook page that was created by second year students of the veterinary technician program. It is stamped on photographs of smiling veterinary technician students as they handle animals, operate and fill out charts. So what do the students want the program to be saved from, exactly? The answer is suspension.

'Mad About You' star shares mad laughs in Bangor

Written by Jodi Hersey

Comedian Paul Reiser is coming to Bangor this weekend to make people laugh. Reiser, who starred in the popular NBC '90s sitcoms 'My Two Dads' and 'Mad About You,' began his career as a stand-up comedian long before he started acting. Besides TV, he's also had the opportunity to star in several movies, including 'Aliens,' 'Beverly Hills Cop I' and 'II,' and most recently he played Matt Damon's lawyer in the Emmy award winning HBO movie 'Behind the Candelabra.' 

But what most people may not realize is that Reiser is also gifted in music. He wrote the theme song 'Final Frontier' for 'Mad About You' and collaborated with and played piano for British singer/songwriter Julia Fordham on the album Unusual Suspects. When he wasn't busy acting or making music he found time to become an author. Reiser has written three books so far 'Couplehood,' 'Babyhood' and 'Familyhood,' and he shows no signs of slowing down. I recently had the opportunity to talk with him by phone. He said he's looking forward to visiting the Gracie Theatre and sharing some universal laughs about the absurdities of modern life.

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."
