Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Photo Essay: 2012 National Beard and Mustache Championships

Posted on Tue, Nov 13, 2012 at 2:53 PM

This past weekend Las Vegas hosted the 2012 National Beard and Mustache Championships, which, as far as we're concerned, is basically the most important competition of the year.
There's a bunch of categories for various types of beards and mustaches.
For example, there's the "Hungarian Mustache," which is different from the "Imperial Mustache." There's the "Amish Beard" and the "Partial Beard, Freestyle."
Unfortunately, 2012 results are not yet available. BUT! Our events company, Lay it Out Events, helped put this show on and came back with these pictures.
