Thanks to the hundreds and hundreds of you who took the time to send in ballots last spring. As promised, we picked out three ballots at random; those voters each win a $25 gift certificate from a yet-to-be-determined Best of TucsonTM top vote-getter. And the winners are: Lori Bryant, Doris J. Morris and Percival Palma. Congrats, and again, thanks for voting.
Now that BOT 18 is done, it means that--after a few weeks of relaxation--we'll soon get started on Best of TucsonTM 19. (Scary, huh?) And for BOT 19, we're going to try something new: One of you, if you're artistically inclined, could perhaps do the principal design and concept for the issue--the deal includes a paid contract. It's a contest sorta thing. Look for details in a few weeks, in this space and in an advertisement.
But back to this issue. We hope you enjoy it; as always, if you have any questions or comments, let me know.
On a different note, we'd like to welcome back Chris Limberis to the Weekly's pages. As you know (assuming you read this note each week, which admittedly is a large assumption), he's been battling leukemia, and has been away for a couple months. Although he's continuing treatment, he's back--much, I am sure, to the dismay of some Tucson elected officials. Welcome back, Chris.
