Carter Johnson, What I love about this is we are using a Publisher vendor that has catered to newspapers across the country. Through their experience, they have figured out the little quirks and tricks people try to use to manipulate these contests. We are pleased to be partnering with them to produce the results the readers have come to trust with our papers. In a few weeks, we will be releasing the Best of the Press to you in a special layout and format. We are thankful to have such strong community participation. It’s a privilege to live and work with these dedicated business owners.
