MARINETTE — People all over the area were glued to their computers and cell phones this morning to watch Amanda Brinkman and Ty Pennington announce the finalists in the Small Business Revolution contest for a $500,000 marketing makeover.

Marinette and Menominee were not chosen in the Top 5, which was expanded to the Top 6 Tuesday morning.

Organizers, small business owners and supporters throughout the community were disappointed in the decision, but are already making plans for the next step in growing and supporting the area's small business community.
