Best of Windsor 2012, published Wednesday, February 22, 2012 in the Windsor Beacon. Design and Layout: Alana Underwood Editor: David Persons Reporters: David Persons, Ashley Keesis-Woods Photographers: Carol Hirata, Don Reichert, David Persons

The 2012 Best of Windsor is the eighth such annual contest the Windsor Beacon has conducted. Judging by some of the nearly 3,000 responses (in paper and online), the 2012 Best of Windsor appears to be one of the most “fun” contests we’ve had. OK, so I’m using the term “fun” loosely. I say they are having “fun” because how else can you explain why Dr. Michael Carey, one of the town’s noted family physicians, received votes for Best Veterinarian. Or, how can you explain why the Asian Pearl Restaurant got votes for Best Hamburger? I can go on awhile but I believe you get the point. Seriously, the contest has turned into just what we envisioned it should be – something fun. On the other hand, we do understand why some professionals don’t look at it that way and beg us to have their category unlisted. We respect that, but, I would just like to say to them: lighten up. Have some fun. It’s nice to win but it’s not a commentary on you or your business if you lose. The contest is not meant to be a scientific poll. It’s meant to be fun. In fact, ballot stuffing has been popular, if not openly encouraged. It’s just a friendly competition where employees and residents can get together to brag about their favorite business or professional. The truth is – just about everything in Windsor is the “Best of something.” We also were pleased to see that there more selections receiving votes in each category this year. All that helps to do is illustrate the rich diversity that exists in Windsor’s working professionals and businesses. If the 2012 Best of Windsor tells us anything for certain, it’s that we all win by working and shopping in Windsor. And, now, the 2012 winners are (please read on) . . . David Persons Editor

House of Windsor’s ice cream, malts available year round By Beacon staff

People have always loved the ice cream served at the 5th Street Malt Shop and at the House of Windsor. It should come as no great surprise that Windsor Beacon readers decided that after the House of Windsor merged with the 5th Street Malt Shop that the new business – the House of Windsor General Store and Malt Shop – has the Best Ice Cream Shop in town. “We’re honored to be elected the Best of Windsor,” said Jody Walters, co-owner of the House of Windsor General Store and Malt Shop, 430 Main Street. “We’re ecstatic.” Walters said the public has been enamored with the new store

Authentic A uthentic FFamily amily Mexican Restaurant

ever since the merger a short time ago. “I think the malts and shakes are amazing,” Walters said, “but I think people find it fun to watch an old-time malt mixer. “It’s really a fun place to get ice cream.” In the past, the 5th Street Malt Shop was only open seasonally. After the merger, the malt shop portion of the House of Windsor is open all the time. “It’s exciting that we are now a yearround destination for all your treats,” said House of Windsor co-owner Dan Brunk.

Massage therapy is only a small part of what Robina McWilliams of Ekte Skin Care does, but it was enough to earn her the Best Massage Therapist in the 2012 Best of Windsor contest. And, McWilliams won pulling away. “I didn’t expect that,” McWilliams said upon being told she’d won the category. “Mostly I do facials.” Lately, McWilliams said she has some

clients who have really appreciated the pain relief from her massages. “It’s so wonderful to win when I didn’t expect it,” she said. The victory has now inspired her to become better at what she does. “It’s the best compliment I could get, and now I want to improve for my clients,” McWilliams said.

I call them up and tell them to come in and get treated one time without money. “They do that and then they come back again. “I really appreciate America.” It appears that Windsor really likes Cherry Oswalt.

Cherry Oswalt grew up in Vietnam. Life was hard for her when she was young but it improved greatly, she said when she moved to the United States 12 years ago. She first lived in Los Angeles and later on Long Island in New York. But, it wasn’t until she moved to Windsor in 2012 that she really found a spot to settle down. “This is my second home,” Oswalt said. “I’ve always liked smaller towns and I really like the friendly people.” It’s apparent they like Oswalt, too.

Ladd says caring about customers is what makes the difference

Tom Ladd may be getting used to winning the Best Plumbing Company each year in the Best of Windsor contest, but he’s not acting like it. “I really feel that I have some good people who care about people,” said Ladd, while trying to explain why his business is so popular with residents. “We always try to do our best for the customers. I treat people like I would want to be treated.” And, it actually takes more than that given the number of people who are struggling to make ends meet, Ladd says.

“I understand the hard times,” Ladd said. “We do our best to do (the job) the (least expensive) we can but not so we have to come back again. We keep our rates down, too.” Ladd went on to say that he believes he saves customers money by only charging them by the hour, not an up-front fee. “I think we save people a lot of money that way,” Ladd said. Ladd, whose business is located at 307 4th Street, has been in business in Windsor for 25, going on 26 years. His business phone number is 686-7793.
