Who's got the best bouquets, planters and floral arrangements?
Local florists are there to witness many of life's milestones: a birth, a wedding or an anniversary; a passing or a promotion; an apology, a fancy dinner or prom. With prom and graduation season upon us -- not to mention Mother's Day on May 13 -- we're thinking about the power of the flower. And did you know? This week is Administrative Professionals Week (formerly known as Professional Secretaries Week), a time to remind your secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists and other administrative support professionals that you can't do without them. So this week's Readers' Choice focuses on florists. Beginning today -- Monday, April 23 and through 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, we'll be asking for your recommendations for who is the …

Check back on Monday for a new contest—we’ll be looking for the best milkshake in town!
Hello? Is anyone out there? We didn’t get any votes on our Readers’ Choice tax preparers poll—I’m going to guess that there are a lot of people opting to do their own taxes these days. Either that or there will be quite a few people scrambling to make appointments this week. In the meantime, start thinking about where you go in Brecksville to get the best milkshakes. Our next Readers’ Choice contest will start on Monday morning. We’ll take nominations until Wednesday, and the voting will begin on Thursday.
