      Paige,
      The names on this list were nominated by readers. We had open nominations for the entire month of October. Mineola Buzz, or myself, did not nominate any business. I created the categories and our readers have done everything else.
      It is fun, isn\’t it?
      Thanks for voting.
      Scott
