This is great! However, for several years in a row, Hickman County has received this certification and I have not seen very many changes that have been brought about because of meeting this criteria. While surrounding counties seem to grow without limits, we have changed very little in the last 20 years and very little because of meeting state criteria. But, at least Mr. Phillips had the opportunity to have his photo taken with the Governor.
