HERMON - More and more family portraits these days are including the family pet, and no one knows that better than Debra Bell of Bell Imaging & Design in Hermon. She's been capturing the loving relationship between parents, their children and their fur babies for years. So much so, in fact, she's created a separate division of Bell Imaging and Design solely dedicated to pet portraits called Bell's Furry Friends Photography.

"Sixty percent of my business over the last year has been animal related, and some of that I think is due to the fact that I have such a passion for what I do," said Bell.

Cruising for a cause

Hermon car show to benefit Project Graduation

 

HERMON - The seniors at Hermon High are revving things up. The students are hosting their very first car show at the school in order to raise funds for Project Graduation.

"I've grown up with cars in the family and been to many car shows, so I know quite a bit about antique cars and car shows," said Hermon High School senior Brendon Dyer. "My favorite classic car is a 1976 Pontiac Trans Am T-Top. I talk about it all the time."

Mini donkeys find loving home in Hermon

 

HERMON - Wayne Moir is not your typical pet owner. Rather than owning a cat or dog, this Hermon resident, who grew up on a farm in Aroostook County, has opened his heart and home to a different kind of fur ball - miniature donkeys.

"They are like a dog," Moir said. "They come when you call them. They follow each other in a row and you know who is the leader of the pack: Suzy. She's always up front."

Six-year-old Suzy Q, a former show donkey that is a mere 29 inches in height, is the oldest of Moir's three mini-donkeys. He bought her from a farm in Newport last August.

Hermon resident slips into the shoe market

Mom creates wearable, walking art

HERMON - A Hermon mother of three has found a unique way to make a little bit of money without leaving the comforts of home. Angela Erickson created Artsy Pants Boutique last May, and since then she's created numerous pieces of wearable art using nothing more than sneakers and Sharpie markers.

"I buy Converse shoes [on the web] or have people give me gently used shoes - because I know how expensive shoes can be - and then I draw free hand," Erickson explained.
