Editors note: Humans belonging to the winners of their cats have received an e-mail with instructions on how to claim their prize. Votes cast after 5 p.m. on Friday, December 20 were NOT counted for the finals. Our webmaster is currently vacationing and the last elf at LITE-FM was working hard behind the scenes to download the results at 5 p.m. on the dot. Thanks for your patience as we got these results up and wrapped up Christmas Wish while out workshop was pretty empty! Merry Christmas from the whole LITE-FM family and our resident Christmas cat, Dakota. <Michelle Heart>
