Not all of the best of WNC were recognized

In the Personal Services category of the 2011 Best of WNC, I wish you had mentioned Black Mountain Tire Connection [Oct. 12 Xpress].

I had a flat tire at my residence and the mechanic not only drove to my place to add air, but also followed me to his shop to fix my flat to make sure that, on the way there, my tire didn't have any other issues. I have good tires, so all they had to do was "patch it up," so to speak, to fix the leak, but did not charge me a dime for the whole service. I also went back a month later and asked if they could add a little air in my tires again with no charge and a smile.

In this small town out here they have happily helped me out without asking for anything. They are the best and should be recognized. Perhaps next year?

Editor’s response: The Best of WNC is a readers’ poll, which means that readers determine the winners in each category — not Mountain Xpress.
