Time To Select The Best!

In fact, what better time than the occasion of The North Central News’ 11-year anniversary to roll out our most popular series of the year again - our “Best Of Readers’ Poll”? That’s right, it was 11 years ago this month that local residents received the first-ever issue of The North Central News in their mailboxes. One of the main reasons for the subsequent pattern of growth - in addition to our talented, dedicated staff and our valued advertisers - is the involvement and input from our devoted readers. In short, we love to hear from you. And with our BEST OF series, it’s your chance to recognize the area businesses you know and love in a contest effectively run by the people they care most about: their customers! So take a few moments and fill out the ballot on page 11. There will be some great prizes randomly selected for those who do. This year we are also pleased to announce that perennial winner Bolles Brothers are the second business to be inducted into our Readers’Poll Hall of Fame. Look for more details on that - and the announcement of all the winners - in our August edition. - Gary Carra, Publisher
