BEST OF THE BEST: Maui Time publisher Tommy Russo put out a 3-D issue back in 2010, and so he proved quite helpful when The Indy came calling for tips and advice for our own multidimensional celebration of the 2013 Best of Santa Barbara® Readers’ Poll. Realizing that his time and talent should be recognized, we immediately dispatched our photo editor, Paul Wellman, to the tropical island for this 30-second photo shoot. A tanned Wellman returned to suggest countless other ways to continue the collaboration. Thanks again, Tommy. You’re the best!
