I’m happy to announce that I’ve made it to the top five in the “Best Newspaper Columnist” category in the Best of the Red River Valley contest.

You can see all of the finalists right here.

Those are some talented writers, and it’s gratifying┬ájust to be with them in the top five.

Of course, that doesn’t mean I think they should win.

Click to vote for me, if you would, and then think about sharing your vote on social media.

And while you’re there, consider voting for my good friend Jay Thomas for Best Local Radio Show and for 970 WDAY as the best local radio station.

You can vote once per day until October 15.
