Congratulations on a successful first 2016 Journal Tribune Readers’ Choice Awards, somthing that we plan to make an annual contest. We received hundreds of ballots and thousands of votes from our digital and print ballots. As the nation prepares for a Presidential election, it’s a great reminder that your vote matters. In the pages to follow, you will recognize the names of most category winners, like the winner of favorite beach, Old Orchard Beach. As with any Readers’ Choice, some surprises appear, along with reminders of your favorite places here in your backyard. Lord’s Clam Box in Sanford, which won the highly contested favorite seafood category continues to be a crowd pleaser. Sea Salt Lobster claimed a couple categories including Fresh Fish Market and best Lobster. Pool Street Market in Biddeford won the best Lobster Roll category. Enough of the great seafood teasers, I’m getting hungry just thinking about the mouthwatering goodness

this readers’ choice highlights. If you enjoy casual restaurants or fine dining, this contest reveals them all. Solid local schools are important to any community. Biddeford, Thornton Academy and St James Schools received a dominant share of the votes representing a strong tradition of excellence in education from our readers. Medical services were well represented with Southern Maine Health Care winning favorite medical facility and for favorite Optometrist, well you’ll have to look them up in the pages that follow. From shopping to entertainment and everything in between, we have you covered. We want to thank Lucky Loggers Landing Restaurant, Portland Sea Dogs and City Theater for providing gift cards and tickets to the lucky readers that turned in ballots and were chosen as winners. The winners are Holly, from Old Orchard Beach, Kathryn K. from Kennebunk and Virginia D. from Saco. So, enjoy viewing the businesses and people recognized by your votes, the readers of the Journal tribune; they are part of what make York County and the surrounding areas fantastic places to live and work. — Devin Hamilton, Publisher

Dear Students, Parents, Alumni and Community Members, It is often said, “Tiger Pride is inside” but we love when it shines through! We were pleased to learn that the Biddeford School Department was named 2016 Readers’ Choice Award Winner of this year’s Public Schools (K-8) and Public School (9-12). We know first-hand how amazing our schools are but it is always gratifying to receive confirmation that the community is just as proud of them as we are.
