LOCAL NEWS FIRST.  BIG NEWS ALWAYS.

Last year, the website Uplift Shiawassee (UpShia.com) launched the first-ever A-LIST contest, where visitors to the five local news websites of The Durand Now Network could nominate and vote for the best Shiawassee County businesses.  More than 140,000 votes were cast and businesses across the county in 50 separate categories were recognized.

In its second year, the contest, which began January 1st, has expanded to 63 categories and in the first round of voting, 32,355 votes were cast.  The final round of voting is now underway and it features only the five (maximum) businesses in each category that received the most votes. 

Here are the Durand area businesses that amassed the most votes in their category in the preliminary round of voting.  Of course, this is only good enough for a month of bragging rights, because on April 2nd, after the final round of voting, the A-LISTers will be revealed, and there are bound to be some upsets.
