'That's just funny right there. I don't care where you're from,' a friend of mine said recently after seeing a YouTube clip of comedian Juston McKinney. He was right - McKinney's comedy is universal.  

Whether he's talking about life with his wife, children and dogs or growing up on the border of Maine and New Hampshire, McKinney, a veteran of 'The Tonight Show' (both Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien) and two Comedy Central specials, is as relatable to an auditorium of college students as he would be to a convention of seasoned firefighters. Perhaps an Amazon.com review of McKinney's recent DVD 'A Middle Class Hole' sums it up best: 'He's clean and he's hilarious.'

Teenage depression and anxiety is the subject of a new movie that will premiere at the Gracie Theatre on Wednesday, March 21. The 35 minute film 'The Road Back' was largely created by a dedicated group of local teens and produced by The Acadia Hospital, Project Aware of Saco and Gum Spirits Productions of Portland.

Shot over five days last October at Hermon High School, the film is centered around Allie (Natalie Johnson, a senior at Hermon High School), who deals with depression, and Christian (Josh Devou, a junior at Hermon High School ), who suffers from anxiety. Over the course of the film, these two characters find themselves facing difficult challenges that are compounded by their conditions, but they are ultimately led to discover a way out through treatment.
