The town of Vicco, Ky., which was featured on "The Colbert Report" this year after becoming the smallest municipality in the state to pass an LGBT nondiscrimination ordinance, has seen an outpouring of support from across the country. Mayor Johnny Cummings, who is openly gay, said the town has received more than $200,000 in pledges and grant applications, which he plans to use to revitalize the town's riverbanks, renovate storefronts and install new sidewalks. "I thought the 15 minutes of fame would have been over a long time ago," Cummings said.
