About Face

This month’s Snapz theme centered on guys and their beards, some of which were nicely groomed while others achieved the Duck Dynasty look. Some were barely peach fuzz, and others were incredibly thick and full. All were just what we asked for. Thanks, guys.

These are a few of the ones we received. To see them all, visit our website at www.vindy.com and click on the Snapz banner located in the scrolling Features area of our home page.


After we take time to give thanks later this month and Black Friday arrives, many of you will hit the ground running in the race against the clock known as the holiday shopping season.

For our December Snapz, we are going to focus on a familiar site you’ll see time after time while you’re out tackling your gift list ... those adorable kiddos sitting on Santa’s lap!

Remember when it was your own little ones who were sharing their holiday wish list with the big guy? Dig out the snapshots you took to capture the moment. No professional portraits, please.

Send them in for our “Santa Baby” feature.

We’ll publish a few of the ones we receive in our Sunday, Dec. 1, edition, and they’ll all be posted on our website.

Don’t forget to include the name and city of residence of the youngster in the picture. It’s also nice to know who submitted it.
