LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A small-town mayor in southeastern Kentucky has won special recognition from the state's Commission on Human Rights.

The commission said Thursday it honored Vicco Mayor Johnny Cummings for his efforts to create local civil-rights protections in his community. The town of 335 people in Perry County gained national attention for adopting a gay-rights ordinance last January.
