The ballots have been tallied and the winners decided. Now it’s time to pore over and discuss the results.

 The 2009 Boulder County Gold section publishes this Sunday in the Camera. Inside you’ll find the best of the best in Boulder County – the people, places and things that make our community great. The section is one of my favorites; it’s an entertaining read and an excellent local resource. Pick up this Sunday’s Camera for your copy of Boulder County Gold. Enjoy reading about all of this year’s winners; some are familiar faces and names, and some are new to the podium. Then file the section next to your other go-to guides so you can reference it the next time you need a really good plumber, book, massage therapist, birthday gift, real estate agent, brunch or martini.

 Or refer to the section online at year-round. Hats off to all the deserving winners and runners-up, as well as the thousands of you who took the time to vote.
