MARBLE FALLS — With such an outpouring of support and interest in the 2013 “Locals Love Us,” The Picayune is continuing the celebration of our readers, businesses and organization throughout March.

We’ve included a complete list of winners, and there were several hundred. Check out the list below and take some time to look it over, see if you’re on it or if you know somebody who is.

The Picayune loves the chance to celebrate the people, businesses and organizations that make the Highland Lakes the best place to live and work. With so many stories to tell, you can find more features on winners in the March 20 and March 27 editions of The Picayune.

On top of that, you’ll find the full list of winners in those editions.

If you see one of the winners while your out and about, congratulate them, shake their hands or give them a high five. If you do celebrate with a high five, snap a photo and post it on The Picayune’s Facebook fan page or email it to, and we’ll post it.

We at The Picayune are humbled by the community’s continued support over all these years. We will always work hard to serve the readers, businesses and organizations because we, too, are part of this community and love it.

And if you have any story ideas or photos, send them our way to the email listed above or give us a call at (830) 693-7152. You can even stop by our office at 1007 Ave. K in Marble Falls.
