By Mayor Pamela Hoots and staff

We made it to the the semi-finals! Give yourselves a round of applause!!! Columbia, Kentucky, has been named one of the top ten in America’s Main Street contest. According to the website, “These Main Streets represent the best in the country but only one will be chosen as the grand prize winner.”

Columbia, Kentucky, was the only one in Kentucky in the quarterfinals; and, is the only one in the state in the top ten semifinals.

Because of your dedication to voting, sharing our posts and spreading the word, we are one of ten finalists in the United States vying for the $25,000 to invest in the city.

Others in the top ten include: Chattahoochee, Florida; Bedford, Pennsylvania; Emporia, Kansas; Hope, Arkansas; Homer, Louisiana; Macon, Georgia; Osborne, Kansas; Snohomish, Washington; and, Sykesville, Maryland.

The contest is sponsored through Independent We Stand, which states it is to inspire small business owners to discover their local roots, and to help consumers understand the importance of supporting them.
