n my newspaper career, I have probably been involved in 20 or more best of sections in different cities and different states. While there are certainly differences in locations, the excitement when the winners are announced is pretty cool. Here in Alvin, I got the results a week or so before anyone else, but like always the first thing I did was scan through to see if my favorites won. As usual, some did and some didn’t, but it was fun to see how my favorites fared. I hope as you scroll through this you will agree. Another secret I’ve learned through the best of sections is how many people use them to actually decide where to spend

My Turn by David Rupkalvis

their money. Just last week, we received a call here at the office from someone who needed roof work done at their home. They read our papers, so they knew we had asked readers to vote on their favorites in a number of categories, including best roofer. They wanted the best in town to do the work on their home, so they called asking who had won. I admit I’ve done that many

times myself. Just this week, we chose an eye doctor here in Alvin because they topped the list in the voting. Last year, I chose a doctor for the same reason. As you read through the winners, keep that in mind. Someday, you may need some help and our readers think these businesses are the best of the best in Alvin and Manvel. As for me, I certainly have my favorites although some of these categories are really hard

to choose. I’m someone who enjoys food — almost any food, so when it comes time to pick the best hamburger or the best restaurant, how do you really choose? They all taste good to me. One winner I was happy to see was almost by accident — well, fully by accident. Several months ago, we got a puppy, and with a new puppy comes the need for a good veterinarian. I have seen puppies suffer with parvo, so I’m pretty adamant about getting puppy shots ASAP with a young dog. So the day after we got our puppy, we called around. The first place that had an opening and could get us in was

Alvin Animal Clinic. So the next day, that’s where we went. And between that day and several more visits since, I have been thoroughly impressed. The vet has always been thorough, kind and took as much time as we needed to answer questions. The vet techs and even the employees up front are knowledgeable and helpful. So it was cool to see Alvin Animal Clinic win not once, but two times in the voting. As you scroll through these winners, I hope you find some of your favorites at the top of the list, too. If not, there is always next year and always the opportunity to nominate and vote for someone new.

Thank you for voting

BEST Donut Shop & So Much More!


n September, 2009, Andy and his wife, Angela moved from Lowell, MA to Alvin, Texas to try their hand at running a donut business. They moved from Cambodia about 25 years ago and have 2 daughters and 1 boy. Daylight Donuts serves mostly breakfast food. It took them about a year before they figured out how to improve their menu. In the 10 years the restaurant has been open, they have been able to remodel twice, including an extensive water filtration system that they use to ensure top quality in the food they offer! They take great pride in everything and always keep everything very clean and in excellent working condition. In an effort to make themselves better, they concentrate on quality food and a wider selection than any competitor in town. Everything is cooked in the shop. Not only do they sell amazing pastries but Andy was also formally educated about coffee at the Texas Coffee School in Arlington, TX and has since invested about $20K in coffee equipment. They not only serve regular coffee, but also serve Espressos, Lattes, Cappuccinos, Mochas, Plate White and a lot more!

I would like to thank you for your confidence, trust and loyalty over the many years of my career. It has been my pleasure and privilege to have shared in your lives, the joys as well as the times of grief.
