Best of Polk ap­pears to­day

The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE - From staff re­ports

Who has the best bar­be­cue? Maybe the best deal on floor cov­er­ings? Or who is the best fam­ily doc­tor in all of Polk County?

For the third year in a row, the Stan­dard Jour­nal has sought votes from the com­mu­nity on who has the best of the best in a va­ri­ety of cat­e­gories, and this year you didn’t dis­ap­point.

Af­ter all the votes were tal­lied, thou­sands of nom­i­na­tions on­line and by pa­per bal­lot pro­vided us with a long list of busi­nesses and ser­vices, items and places we should give the Reader’s Choice Award for 2017. All told, the fi­nal count came to 13,743 nom­i­na­tions place by 1,034 vot­ers.

We here at the Stan­dard Jour­nal would like to thank all of those who par­tic­i­pated in this year’s vot­ing which took place ear­lier in the fall. We also thank those busi­nesses who par­tic­i­pated in mak­ing this edi­tion a suc­cess for an­other year run­ning.

If you were hop­ing to see your fa­vorite per­son, place or par­tic­u­lar item voted as the Best of Polk for 2017 by your fel­low read­ers, don’t fret. Wait around for a while in 2018, and keep track of the pa­per start­ing in Oc­to­ber to see when vot­ing will open again.

In the mean­time, we en­cour­age our read­ers to take a look at this year’s Best of Polk 2017 edi­tion in the in­cluded tab, and check out the win­ners in per­son dur­ing the up­com­ing hol­i­day sea­son and be­yond.
