Readers make known their Best


South County voters have spoken.

Some of them anyway.

Winners of the 2019 Best of South County Readers Poll were celebrated Jan. 29 at Seven Mile Casino.

The annual survey asks readers of The Star-News to weigh in on their picks for the best people, places and things in the region.

They answered, and their answers are appreciated.

While the ballots were anonymous, the winners are not. These are some of them. You can find the rest of the winners —and what they won — starting on page 11.
