Coming Sunday: Our readers send their best to you on Christmas

December 20, 2013 

Judy Newman, of New Athens, had her picture taken on Santa's lap in 1949. She was 5 years old. When her sister, Mary, found the old photo, she had Christmas cards made for Judy. The message inside: "Believe." Check out more special reader Christmas cards in our BND Magazine.

Also, we'll have a story on how things might change with the influx of more independents on the Belleville City Council.
