Mack-daddy John Lafferty is the first winner in the newspaper’s six-week Top Notch contest, earning front-page placement of the photo and an Islander newspaper “More-Than-A-Mullet wrapper” T-shirt. Lafferty’s entry — a fun shot of Chris Dayo and the trout he caught — is just the fun sort of snapshot moment that attracts the judge’s eye. Contest details are found on page 8. The next deadline is noon Friday, June 31.
