Dear Read­er,

Well, you did it.

You chose the best people, places and busi­nesses in your com­munity by cast­ing your votes dur­ing these past few weeks.

Each vote was a token of sup­port for the hard work of loc­al res­taur­ants, shops, bars, gal­ler­ies, salons and more. All those busi­nesses and in­di­vidu­als and in­di­vidu­als have kept truck­ing alone, each and every day, in an eco­nom­ic cli­mate that isn’t easy for any­one.

That hard work has paid off in ways Star is proud to re­cog­nize.

In­side, you’ll read words from the win­ners—words that of­fer a unique look in­to the in­ner work­ings of the places and people you might see every day.

Maybe you’ll even learn of your new fa­vor­ite place.

There is one over­whelm­ing com­mon­al­ity in those words, though: every win­ner was grate­ful, most of all, to the com­munity,.

That’s what makes this con­test just so great. It’s proof that com­munit­ies are strong and vi­brant places in which people sup­port one an­oth­er.

What could be more im­port­ant these days?

Star is thrilled to present The Best of the River Wards 2012.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the win­ners!
