Arab is the apparent winner of a little "best welcome sign" contest The Advertiser-Gleam held on its Facebook page. 

Going by sheer "likes," Arab got 1,100 votes to runner-up Guntersville's 681. 

Albertville was 3rd with 176 likes. Grant received 154 votes and Boaz 45. 

It was purely unscientific and you might account for Boaz's low total by us being the paper on this end of the county. 

The sign contest was one of our more popular Facebook posts lately, reaching more than 30,000 people. 

We'll try to come up with another online contest sometime soon.
