Holmes Security Systems, a division of Holmes Electric, Inc. is today the leading company in security sales and central station monitoring.

Best Remodeling Contractor Ben Stout Construction 3987 Boone Trail (910) 476-4502 or www.benstoutconstruction.com Ben Stout Construction's projects are vast and involve quick, quality and af- fordable service. For Stout, it's about seeing the community grow and advance in a positive direction. Stout demonstrates his commitment to helping the commu- nity grow in his service to the board of directors for the Fayetteville Association of Home Builders. Ben Stout said his construction company specializes in five things: new con- struction, upfits, additions, renovations and specialized projects for each client. He said the company's growth is largely because of word-of-mouth advertising and testimonials. "Ben Stout Construction helped upfit our Cameron location; they did an excel - lent job," Peter Manis, owner of The Coffee Scene, said. "They made it go from basically a framed structure to a coffee shop ready for us to do our business." Coin- cidence that The Coffee Scene is also on our Best of Fayetteville list? We think not. When business owners are committed to their community, everyone benefits. GOODS & SERVICES GOODS & SERVICES
