BANGOR - Hundreds of individuals have auditioned for various plays and musicals at The Penobscot Theatre, but none have had quite the look, confidence and strut of Zuzu. This Olde English Bulldogge from Brewer will be playing Sandy, the lovable sidekick of little orphan Annie in the musical of the same name. The production will run from Dec. 5-29 at the theater on Main Street.

"We didn't have our heart set for Zu to be Sandy; it was just something fun [to do]," said Brian Sturgeon, Zuzu's owner. "I was surprised how well she did [during auditions] being only 2 or 2 years old and having gone through obedience class."

Hopping to the rescue

Lamoine resident creates rabbit rescue

LAMOINE - A Lamoine resident has created a hopping business out of her home that's purely dedicated to rescuing abandoned, neglected or surrendered rabbits. Jenny Nichols began Cottontail Cottage Rabbit Rescue over the summer, and now she is hoping to find homes for approximately 20 rabbits she currently has available for adoption.

"I didn't know that much about rabbits a couple years ago," Jenny Nichols admitted. "I started doing research and found out they are as smart as dogs."

BANGOR - Eastern Maine Medical Center is quickly becoming one of the most popular hospital sites among medical students looking for locations to fulfill their rotation requirements. Just ask Mary Blish, EMMC's enthusiastic clinical education specialist.

"We do what is called a showcase at the University of New England [each year]. It's for students looking for rotations in the next year. Every clinical site is down there and we all get a certain amount of time to talk about our location. I always like to be different and stand out," explained Blish.

Seats set up at Bangor Mall for viewing & testing

BANGOR - The new Bangor Auditorium is one step closer to completion now that the seating inside the new Cross Insurance Center has been selected. Hussey Seating Company, a family-owned company in North Berwick, will be supplying and installing 8,000 of its seats inside the new arena next month. However, the public can test them out this month when they stop by the Bangor Mall. That's where a couple of the chairs are currently on display.

"I think it's important for people to get a firsthand view of what the new seats are going to look like," said Adam Pearson, director of sales operations at the Hussey Seating Company.

Survivor's youngest player gets voted off

The 25th season of 'Survivor' is already becoming predictable. For the third week in a row, viewers watched as the Kalabaw and Tandang tribes dominated the immunity challenge, leaving the Matsing tribe to face tribal council once again. With just four players remaining on that tribe, the choices of who to send home were limited. Both Russell Swan and Angie Layton offered very little during the challenge, but when confronted both claimed they were more valuable than the other and should remain in the game.

Fireball Run races to completion in Bangor

Eight day road rally crosses finish line at Hollywood Casino racetrack

BANGOR - Car shows are a popular summer pastime in Maine, and this weekend Bangor hosted a show unlike any other. Fierce Ferraris, muscular Mustangs, lovely Lamborghinis, cruising Corvettes and dashing DeLoreans zoomed into the Queen city, the finish line for the 2012 Fireball Run adventure rally on Saturday afternoon, turning heads on every street they traveled.

"That was amazing. I had thoughts in my head how it would be, but to spend that many days with the same people traveling across the United States, we got to see amazing things that a lot of people wouldn't get to see and do in a race situation," explained "Timber Tina" Scheer of the Bangor Riverdrivers.
