2012 EDITION


BEST OF


of North Fulton & South Forsyth” from Appen Newspapers and staff.


Welcome to our 2012 edition of our “Best As the President of


the International Olympic Committee says after an Olympic Games is over (except of course for Juan Antonio Samaranch at the 1996 Atlanta Games), this “Best Of” was the “best one ever!” We made a number of changes in this one in our efforts to provide our readers with the best information possible. We required our readers to register with us in order to vote. This came close to eliminating all the instances where people


voted more than once. We were worried about making everyone register to vote because that would require more effort. In the end however, over 750 people voted so I feel like we have a good list for you. The winners and finalists certainly should be good bets for you in terms of superior quality of services or products including and especially food! And it will help, by the way, if you mention that you saw their award in the “Best Of” poll with Appen Newspapers. We named a “Winner” in each category and two “Finalists” (2nd and 3rd in the voting). In some categories there were insufficient votes


to name more than one finalist. Also in several the voting was either a tie or almost a tie and in that case we named more than two finalists. Finally, we fine-tuned the selection of categories of goods and services. Last year some categories just didn’t generate votes so we dropped them and added new ones. I would like to hear from you especially if you have any ideas for the 2013 “Best Of” poll. We want to keep improving it every time. Please email me: AppenPublisher@gmail. com. Thanks for your input and thanks for keeping and using this year’s poll results information.
