Everybody has a favorite — whether it’s a person, an automobile, a professional service, a retailer, a bank, a restaurant, a church or any number of categories.

What’s yours?

To quote a familiar marketing adage from the past, “inquiring minds want to know.” That includes Cleveland Daily Banner readers as well as a hunk of area businesses and services who believe they offer the community’s finest shopping, vehicles, customer service, financing, recreation, entertainment and tasty cuisine.

The community wants to know and now it’s time to find out.

Inside today’s issue of the Banner on page 51, and in Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday editions for the next two weeks, readers will find a one-page ballot for Reader’s Choice 2012, a survey in which local residents will vote for the “Best of Bradley County.”

General categories will include People, Automotive, Services, Shopping and Restaurants. Plus, voters will also get the opportunity to cast a ballot for “Best Overall Business in Bradley County.”

Here are a few tips and reminders for those wanting to participate:

n Entry deadline is Friday, May 18, at 5 p.m.

n The single-page ballot will be published in Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday editions through May 17.

n No photocopies will be accepted; only newspaper forms from the Banner can be counted in the voting.

n Readers may vote more than one time.

n Voters should complete as much of the name as possible within each category (i.e. first and last names when voting for people or full business name when identifying a merchant).

n If voting for a business with multiple locations, indicate which site or store on the ballot.

n Completed ballots may be hand-delivered to the Cleveland Daily Banner office at 1505 25th Street or mailed to the following address: Cleveland Daily Banner, P.O. Box 3600, Cleveland, TN 37320.

n The names of each winner in all categories receiving votes will be published in a special edition scheduled for print in June.

By completing an accompanying entry form included on the ballot, voters will have their names automatically entered in a drawing for a dining gift card. Voters are reminded not to clip the entry form out of the full-page ballot. They should be left intact and submitted together.

Microsoft to Take Stake in Barnes & Noble’s Nook Unit  |  Microsoft announced on Monday that it would invest $300 million in Barnes & Noble’s Nook division for a 17.6 percent stake. The deal values the e-reader business at $1.7 billion.

The move by Microsoft will help bolster the standing of Barnes & Noble’s fastest-growing unit. The bookstore giant had said earlier this year that it was exploring strategic options for the business, including a potential divestiture or strategic partnership.

The company has wagered heavily on the Nook, whose e-readers and tablets compete against Amazon’s best-selling Kindle devices in the hotly contested world of electronic books. Both companies are spending heavily to maintain a foothold in light of Apple’s success with the iPad. DEALBOOK »

Georgia injury laws indicate that if you suffered a personal injury due to the negligence of another person, that person is responsible to pay compensation. This compensation covers the costs of the damage you may have suffered, medical bills, property replacement costs and more. Information about Georgia injury laws will help clarify many of the details involved.

Georgia injury law stipulates that in order to be able to litigate for personal injury liability, the following conditions must be met:

  • The person who caused you personal injury had a responsibility to prevent you from getting that injury. All people have the obligation to behave reasonably carefully such that their actions don't hurt another.
  • That person failed to fulfill that responsibility.
  • Because of that failure, you were injured
