Restaurant Wait Staff BEST AMONG THE BEST Smith Landscaping & the Greenhouse bested Lowes by a single vote while the Briar Patch missed the list by one vote.

Studdard & Associates Stone & Hayes David Owen J. Broussards Huck's Place Thrift Store BEST AMONG THE BEST Bed & Breakfast BEST AMONG THE BEST Lowndes inched ahead of Memorial & Gunter and Peel, collecting two votes more.

Black Prairie Caterer BEST AMONG THE BEST Heating & Cooling Service BEST AMONG THE BEST We raise our glasses to The Jug, Mike's and Wines Etc. , who were all neck and neck for Among the Best.

Triangle Air & Electric Evans (tie) B&S (tie) Mid-South/Victor Unruh (tie) Dale Shepherd Gerald Vest Matt Dennison Carpet Care BEST AMONG THE BEST Women's Clothing BEST AMONG THE BEST Johnson Carpet Micky Brislin won last year's hometown hero category.

Plumber BEST AMONG THE BEST Assisted Living Community BEST AMONG THE BEST Harold Pounders Bill Kidder Dale Nelson Trinity Belk Reed's Deep South Pout Royal Palmer's Interiors Hotel BEST AMONG THE BEST Wingate Fashion Barn, Reed's and Deep South Pout were all in a virtual tie. Reed's and Deep South Pout both have locations in Columbus and Starkville. Our local carpet care companies may want to consider a branding campaign. Our readers tend to think of carpet sales companies when they think of carpet care. Fairfield Inn & Suites Holiday Inn Anyone who says these guys don't earn their money is full of.... Plantation Pointe Arrington Day Care/ Pre-School BEST AMONG THE BEST Wingate, which was built over 13 years ago, just barely won this category, earning a handful more votes that new kid on the block, Fairfield.

Muffler Repair BEST AMONG THE BEST Thirty-one dentists received votes this year. Though most probably think of adult dentists when they read this category, pediatric dentist David Curtis received a significant number of votes. The votes for this category matched almost exactly the vote tally for the Assisted Living category. This is the first year we've had this category and Dr. Ellis easily took first place. Boat Dealer BEST AMONG THE BEST 3 Star Teacher BEST AMONG THE BEST Boat Gallery Miller OK Tire Muffler Magic OB/GYN BEST AMONG THE BEST Abby Fitzgerald Performance Marine Miller Marine Gregory Childry Dermatologist BEST AMONG THE BEST Cam Otey James Holzhauer Patricia Perdue (tie) Sara Hollis (tie) Aaron Lee Terry Westmoreland Bethany Hairston Misty Sharp These three have collectively delivered thousands of children over their careers. Dr. Hairston at the Dermatology Clinic and Westmoreland/ Cosmedicenter were neckand-neck for the top spot. Optometrist BEST AMONG THE BEST We've got a lot of great teachers making a significant difference in the lives of our children. We would like to thank not just the 80 teachers who received votes but also every teacher in our community. The Boat Gallery received over four times the number of votes as everyone else put together and has taken this category since we introduced it in 2009. Miller's OK Tire replaced Midas on this list of the top muffler repair shops. Tire Store BEST AMONG THE BEST Miller OK Tire Boat Repair BEST AMONG THE BEST Boat Gallery Bates Tire Lowndes County Radial (tie) Sansing (tie) David Curtis Don Upton Ray Lacey Veterinarian BEST AMONG THE BEST Miller Marine Performance Marine These three keep rolling right along. All were on last year's list as well. Family Physician BEST AMONG THE BEST Louis Bounds Gerry Turner Bob Buckley Slater Lowry Optometrists can provide primary eye care services such as diagnosing eye disease and prescribing glasses. Sammy Wilcox Jim Dowdle Glen Miller and The Boat Gallery tend to trade the top spot back and forth from year to year. Windshield Repair BEST AMONG THE BEST Pro Tech/Frank Burris Glass Doctor Novus (tie) E & S Auto Glass (tie) The three finalists were all very close in their vote counts. Dr. Turner and Dr. Buckley have been on the list for four years each; Dr. Lowry is a first time contender. Ophthalmologist BEST AMONG THE BEST Retiring after 47 years, Louis Bounds fittingly took the top spot this year. Body Shop BEST AMONG THE BEST MGM Scott Bradley Bob's Hardin's ProTech easily won this category while Novus and E&S Auto Glass tied. Dan Bennett William Gillespie General Surgeon BEST AMONG THE BEST Jerry Stennett Ophthalmologists can provide a full spectrum of eye care, including surgery. Thomas Vinson (tie) Michael Berry (tie) Richard Valette Orthodontist BEST AMONG THE BEST Gettin' Around Auto Dealer-New BEST AMONG THE BEST Last year was the first time we had this category and ABC had it then, but MGM on Highway 50 in Columbus took it this year. Brake Repair BEST AMONG THE BEST Cooper Callaway John Russell David Curtis Miller OK Tire Dr. Stennett takes the top place for the second year in a row and Drs. Berry and Valette make their debuts on the list. Carl Hogan Automotive Premier Ford Carl Hogan Toyota Home Health Agency BEST AMONG THE BEST After the retirement of Charles Atkins, Dr. Callaway has taken this category every year. Lowndes County Radial (tie) Midas (tie) Stokes Express Let's Eat BBQ BEST AMONG THE BEST Orthopedist BEST AMONG THE BEST Gentiva Rusty Linton Carl Hogan Automotive and Premier Ford were neckand-neck this year. Mitchell Automotive also had a strong showing but didn't quite make the list. Miller's OK Tire shows no sign of needing brakes as it pulled ahead of the pack this year. Lowndes County Radial and Midas received the same number of votes. Little Dooey Hank's PJ's Baptist/Baptist Hospice Home Med (tie) Trinity (tie) Scott Jones Chad Altmeyer Auto Dealer-Used BEST AMONG THE BEST Car Wash/Detail BEST AMONG THE BEST Home health care is a fastgrowing industry. Lung Physician BEST AMONG THE BEST Lance Busch Four members of Columbus Orthopaedic Clinic appear on our list of the best this year. Additionally, Columbus Orthopaedic Clinic on a whole received eight votes. Carl Hogan Automotive Allen Jones Premier Ford Auto Spa Mr. Bubbles D&B Our readers' choice on this category typically results in calls from many of the local BBQ restaurant proprietors, telling us why their meat is clearly better. Some have great meat, some have great sauce but these have been selected as the best of the best. Cameron Huxford Susan Taylor Pediatrician BEST AMONG THE BEST Jacob Skiwski Carol Hogan Automotive narrowly beat Allen Jones' Caledonia lot. The two dealers have traded the top spot in the category back and forth several times over the past five years. Auto Spa has taken this category for as long as our records tell. Mr. Bubbles and D&B received nearly the same number of votes. Buffet BEST AMONG THE BEST Ryan's Oil Change BEST Ranch House China Buffet In our first year of taking votes on this category, Dr. Busch easily took 1st place. Pam Sykes Christina Collins Auto Repair BEST AMONG THE BEST Medical Center/ Hospital BEST Dr. Skiwski and Dr. Sykes have been trading out the top spot in this category over the past few years. Premier Ford AMONG THE BEST Express Oil Change (Hwy 45) Stokes Miller OK Tire AMONG THE BEST Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle OCH Regional Medical Center North Mississippi Medical Center Stokes Express Marty's Service Center Pet Grooming BEST AMONG THE BEST Pet Smart Premier Ford's service department makes its first appearance on this list. Stokes took the top spot last year. Stokes Express Lube narrowly beat Express Oil Change on Highway 45. The closing of Steve Barnhill's in Columbus and Starkville opened the way for Ryan's to take the title. (That didn't stop one person for voting for Barnhill's.) El Rancho, a locally owned restaurant in East Columbus, is notable in that it has a breakfast buffet. Chicken BEST Columbus Pet Grooming Heavenly Creatures Motorcycle/ ATV Dealer BEST AMONG THE BEST Auto Salesman BEST AMONG THE BEST The three major hospitals in the area easily took the top spots. Nurse Practitioner BEST AMONG THE BEST Cindy Robertson Pet Smart has quickly dominated everything pet related; however, local companies Columbus Pet Grooming and Heavenly Creatures--last year's winner--are holding their own. Paar Colvin Village Cycle Center Power Sports Unlimited Adventure ATV AMONG THE BEST Zaxby's (tie) KFC (tie) Chik-fil-a Popeye's Allen Jones (tie) Roger Tousley (tie) Jim Stafford Stephanie Gale (tie) Joy Murphy (tie) Linda Lamison Pharmacy BEST AMONG THE BEST New Hope Pharmacy Shelton (tie) Walgreens (tie) Robert's Apothecary The names on this list change drastically from year to year, but Paar Colvin at Carl Hogan Honda has appeared on our list two of the past three years. Village Cycle is located in Clayton Village, just east of Starkville. PowerSports Unlimited is part of The Boat Gallery, which also placed in our Boat Dealer and Boat Repair categories. The number of chicken joints in this area has become a running joke. We had a tie for first place this year and newly-opened Chick-fil-a was right on their heels. Chinese Food BEST AMONG THE BEST This is the first year Cindy Robertson has appeared on the list and she received more than twice the number of votes as the second place nurse. Stephanie Gale, Linda Lamison and Kayla White received the same number of votes. Bike Shop BEST AMONG THE BEST Motorcycle/ ATV Repair BEST AMONG THE BEST Peking New Hope Pharmacy's loyal customers pushed them to the top spot this year. Shelton and Walgreens received the same number of votes. Boardtown Bikes Village Cycle Center Power Sports Unlimited Bulldog ATV (tie) Amory Marine (tie) China House Buffet City Village Cycle Center K-Mart Nursing Home BEST Radiologist BEST Mark Ellis Look, we love K-Mart too, but when they appear on the list of the top bike shops, there just aren't many options. It should also be noted that Vil- Bulldog ATV, Powersports Unlimited and Amory Marine are the other repair shops that received votes. This is at least the fifth year Peking has won this category. A lot of vehicles have been noticed at the newly-opened Atlantic Japanese & Chinese restaurant next to Chili's. We'll see if they appear next year. BEST OF THE TRIANGLE THE DISPATCH � www.cdispatch.com AMONG THE BEST SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 2012 5 Coffee BEST AMONG THE BEST Beans & Cream Jones Cafe Huck's Place time he drives by Old Hickory in the evening. The smell is amazing. AMONG THE BEST Columbus Optical Brooks Eye Center Curtis Optometry Vitality (tie) Relax. Cafe Aromas Coffee House on 5th A tip of the hat to whoever makes the coffee at Baptist Memorial Hospital as they received a vote in this category. Starkville's Strange Brew also had a strong showing. As ubiquitous as chicken joints, area diners are certainly not limited to just one meat and three veggies. Sushi BEST AMONG THE BEST UMI The person who voted for Sears Optical clearly hasn't had their eyes checked lately. Tanning Salon BEST AMONG THE BEST Sun Struck Salad BEST AMONG THE BEST Sweet Pepper's Deli Harvey's United Deli Little Tokyo Bann Thai Fitness Center BEST AMONG THE BEST World Color Val's Rejuvenation Dessert BEST AMONG THE BEST Cafe on Main Harvey's J. Broussard's Smackers easily took the top spot last year after their opening, but stalwart Caf� on Main returns to the top this year. Eat With Us Group must have salads figured out. In addition to Harvey's and Sweet Peppers Deli, The Grill also received several votes. The Front Door/Back Door had a strong showing in this category. Unfortunately, we have heard they will be closing their doors soon. Competition has heated up in this category over the past couple of years. After four years of being at the top of the list Little Tokyo was unseated by Umi. Fitness Factor Core Fitness YMCA Establishment tanning salon, Sun Struck, received nearly four times the votes of every other business combined. Sweet Tea BEST AMONG THE BEST Sweet Pepper's Deli McAlister's Jones Cafe The competition in the fitness center has heated up in the past few years. Encore Fitness was one vote shy of making the top of the list. Weight Loss Center BEST AMONG THE BEST Weight Watchers Hair Salon BEST AMONG THE BEST Physician's Weight Loss Saum/Ideal Protein Japanese/Thai BEST AMONG THE BEST Sandwich BEST AMONG THE BEST UMI Sweet Pepper's Deli United Deli Proffitt's Porch Like BBQ, everyone has their opinion on the best sweet tea. Sonic, Mexican Kitchen and Chick-fil-a were other popular choices. Appearance Salon Jamie's Salon Salon 417 Several gyms received votes in this category, including YMCA, Fitness Factor, Encore and Core. Bann Thai Little Tokyo None of these have fun names like The Hairport, but we're sure they still do a fine job of cutting hair. In just the past few years, this category has gotten competitive. Umi, which has locations in Columbus and Starkville, won the category. Newcomer Sao Thai came just shy of receiving enough votes to be listed. We can't argue with any of the top three picks here, but the Among the Best selections are two of Columbus' "hidden gems." Massage Therapist BEST AMONG THE BEST $ Jenea Vest Seafood BEST AMONG THE BEST Ruben's Mexican Food BEST AMONG THE BEST Mi Toro Huck's Place J. Broussard's Looking Good Barber/Beautician BEST Sylvia Killebrew Linda Warnat Show Me The Money Bank BEST AMONG THE BEST Jenea not only gives a great massage but is also a registered nurse. Cadence Nail Salon BEST AMONG THE BEST Mi Hacienda Mexican Kitchen Mi Toro has two locations and a die-hard customer base--not to mention a large statue of a bull in front of their Highway 45 location. La Terrazza in Starkville received several votes, and the word on the street is it is worth checking out. As long as catfish is included as seafood, we have plenty of options in these parts. Twentyeight restaurants received votes. AMONG THE BEST Wanda Blake (tie) Zack Musselwhite (tie) Kari Nath Kristen Stephens Brickerton Day Spa Rose's Nails Lucky Nails BankFirst Regions Sports Bar/ Night Club BEST AMONG THE BEST Sey's Pizza BEST AMONG THE BEST Zachary's Tampico Bay If there was an award for best sign, we are sure Zack Musselwhite's place on Main Street would win that category too. Congratulations to Zach and Wanda Blake, who tied in this category. Brickerton has this wrapped up, winning best salon and best nail technician. There was strong support for all of the area banks, but the two most local banks--Cadence and BankFirst--led the pack. BankFirst has been in the top three for four years. Credit Union BEST Nail Technician BEST AMONG THE BEST Laura Frasher AMONG THE BEST Triangle Federal Credit Union Members First Columbus Municipal CJ's Pizza Hut Papa John's Sey's has won this category for at least five years. Tampico Bay appears in the top three for the first time this year. Cosmetic Procedures BEST AMONG THE BEST Heather Pack (tie) Renee Jordan (tie) Lee Nugyen Dermatology Clinic CJ's Pizza completely dominates this category. Business seems to be bustling at their Italian Bistro, located next door to their Columbus location. Steak BEST AMONG THE BEST Old Hickory Plate Lunch BEST Huck's Place (tie 1) J. Broussard's (tie 1) Harvey's (tie 2) Golden Horn (tie 2) Cosmedicenter Dr. Griffin No wrinkles in the vote tally for this category. Bethany Hairston's Dermatology Clinic took the top spot. Historically, we've only had a category for Nail Salon, but due to popular demand, we added this category this year and 34 nail technicians received votes. With over 14,000 members TFCU is the largest credit union in the area, and that showed in the results. Mortgage Lender BEST AMONG THE BEST Spa BEST AMONG THE BEST JTS & Co. Brickerton Day Spa Bella Derma Eden (tie) BancorpSouth Regions Cafe on Main This writer makes a point to roll his window down each Eyewear BEST With rates as low as they are, everyone needs to be talking to their lenders.
