Coming soon: the return of Vin's People

Vin's People is coming back!

After a 10-month hiatus keeping up with all those honey-dos, retired Bradenton Herald local columnist Vin Mannix will resume his popular names and notes column in the Herald starting next Friday, Jan. 23. (Many thanks to Carl Mario Nudi for filling in all those weeks with Nudi's Neighbors!)

Have a funny story?

Let's hear it.

Colleague hitting the Big 5-0? Folks have a milestone wedding anniversary? Your teenager got accepted into college? Stork on the way for the first time?

Let's hear that, too.

Reader participation is encouraged and contributions are welcome.
