(970)330-1584 Our highly acclaimed program consists of 32 classroom hours or 30 online hours and 6 hours of one-on-one, behind-the-wheel instruction and 6 hours of driving observation. We stress defensive driving practices. ANSHOR automobiles have dual brakes and are "Approved and Regulated by the Colorado Department of Revenue, Motor Vehicle Business Group, Driver License Section." Kayla Cartagena was hoping to catch a fish as she casts a line from the dock at Windsor Lake.

WELCOME, ENJOY THE BEST WINDSOR HAS TO OFFER Welcome to the Best of Windsor 2013. The following pages contain the results of more than 500 Best of Windsor ballots submitted both through the print version of the Windsor Beacon and online at www.windsorbeacon.com. As with most Best Of contests, some ballots contained only one or two choices, but this year, hundreds of ballots also arrived with nearly all categories filled out. Those are from Windsorites who patronize their local community on a regular basis,

and they are particularly appreciated. Congratulations to the businesses and organizations that received the most votes. That is quite an accomplishment. But readers also are encouraged to use this special section time and again to visit a number of Windsor establishments. Mix it up a bit. Perhaps a new favorite will emerge next year or a new experience or adventure will arise. That’s really what the Best of Windsor is all about.

Angie Lund, Athena Salon, Spa and Wellness owner, believes beauty should be natural.

As you walk into Arun Rustgi’s office, you are greeted by not one but two smiling faces: Lori Mayle, working the front desk, and Puck, a 6-year-old Labrador retriever. But the positive treatment doesn’t end there when you meet Rustgi, who greets clients with a smile and a handshake. The fun Rustgi brings to his practice is clear as he celebrates his win as the Best of Windsor Best Veterinarian with a hulk-like pose. Above all, he credits his staff for the win. “Bottom line, my staff is awesome,” he said while chewing on a candy sucker. Rustgi, known as “Dr. R,” also points to his clinic’s small-town atmosphere, reasonable rates and emergent care. “It’s the way they treat me and my pets,” said Craig Singleton, who has been a customer for three years, when asked why he keeps coming back. Rustgi also performs surgeries and fixes broken bones that many other general veterinarians will not handle, he said. He also carries a pager so he can be available to provide emergency care if an animal is injured outside of business hours. Rustgi is part of the Mountainwood Pet Hospital, 1200 W. Ash St. Information: (970) 686-5725.

BEST GOLF COURSE

PELICAN LAKES GOLF COURSE SAYS WINNING IS PAR FOR THE COURSE

BEST GOLF COURSE

By Sam Noblett SamNoblett@WindsorBeacon.com

Pelican Lakes golf course has once again won the affection of Windsor. Head golf professional Stacy Kleve credits the win as the Best of Windsor Best Golf Course 2013 to the course’s condition, which he called “stellar,” and its scenic location. “It’s a very playable course,” he said. The course, home to both the 18-hole Pelican Lakes and the 9-hole Pelican Falls, offers a significant bang-for-yourbuck, said Scott Gaines, a member at the course for eight years. And though Kleve may be modest about his role in the success of the course, Gaines credits the staff, calling them “incredible.”

1. Pelican Lakes Golf and Country Club 2. Highland Meadows Golf Course 3. Ptarmigan Golf Course

“This place makes my life. It’s what I do; I play golf,” Gaines said. Course amenities include a full proshop and Austin’s Homestead Bar and Grill. The course itself is a par 72 and is located among 300 surface acres of water. Pelican Falls is a par 34. Nonmember fees are $50 for 18 holes and $27 for nine holes without a golf cart on weekdays. On weekends it increases to $65 and $35 respectively. The club is located at 1620 Pelican Lakes Point. Information: (970) 674-0930.

BEST CONVENIENCE STORE LOAF ‘N JUG MANAGER CREDITS CUSTOMERS, COMFORT FOR SUCCESS By Sam Noblett SamNoblett@WindsorBeacon.com

Whether it’s because they know your name or it’s Verna Berens’ singing, the Windsor Loaf ‘N Jug has become a family establishment where patrons can grab treats from a coffee in icy weather to a slush on a hot summer’s day. Paula Adams, the store manager, credits its win as the Best of Windsor Best Convenience Store to the customers. “If it wasn’t for (them), we wouldn’t be the best,” she said. It’s a place where customers have come to feel at home, she said, whether it is Berens’ call of “morning, dear” as you walk through the door or people asking to

WINDSOR AUTO REPAIR PUTS PREMIUM ON CUSTOMER SERVICE By Erin Udell ErinUdell@Coloradoan.com

After almost 10 years in the community, the staff of Windsor Auto Repair can finally bask in the glow of coming out on top. Co-owned by Peter Hyland and Scott Crowe, both Windsor residents, Windsor Auto Repair officially won Best of Windsor’s auto care category this year. But that was no surprise to Hyland, given the business’s dedication to customer service and great auto care. “I think customer service is paramount with us. We strive very hard to provide good customer service,” he said, adding that they won Windsor 1. Windsor Auto Repair Chamber of Commerce’s 2. Pike’s Auto Care Center award for customer 3. Show Shine Detail/T&T service in 2007, 2008 and Tire 2009. As for auto care and repair services, Hyland said his shop can do anything from oil changes to transmission work as well as brake and engine service. “Besides tires, there’s nothing we can’t do,” he said. “It’s great. It’s quite an honor (to win),” Hyland added. “We feel like we’ve always been the best of Windsor, but now it’s nice to have that confirmed.” Windsor Auto Repair is located at 320 E. Chestnut St. and can be reached at (970) 686-7705.

BEST MEXICAN RESTAURANT, BEST RESTAURANT AND BEST LUNCH NO FRILLS, BUT THERE’S PLENTY OF FLAVOR AT THE BORDER By Erin Udell ErinUdell@WindsorBeacon.com

Located off Main Street in the heart of Windsor, The Border Restaurant has come to be known as a no-frills favorite with great service and even better prices. Leslie Buck has owned The Border for 10 years and said she thinks her customers keep coming back for the varied menu and welcoming wait staff. Before Buck took over, The Border had been in Windsor for five years. “We’ve been here a long time,” Buck said. “It’s homemade food, friendly people work

here, and we have a good variety of food.” While its namesake suggests purely Mexican offerings, Buck said the casual eatery offers about half Mexican and half American dishes, with most full meals costing well under $10. “I always come here for the Mexican (food),” Windsor resident Justin Heldenbrand said. “But everything I’ve had here has been good.” Located at 404 Main St., The Border Restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
