"Bothell's Blake Lewis has brought positive community spirit to this region by sharing his talent and ambition with the world," said Mayor Mark Lamb in a press release. "The City of Bothell commends Blake and his family on his tremendous achievements and we wish him the very best on American Idol and all his future endeavors."

The proclamation comes with an invitation to perform at the city's Music in the Park summer concert series. Blake's parents, Dinah and Dallas Lewis, will receive the honors while son Blake remains in Los Angeles charming the ever-cranky Simon Cowell, who's called him the male Idol frontrunner thus far.

I'm probably his biggest fan...hate to admit but a happily married (44 yrs) woman who totally loves Blake and think he's about the most talented Idol ever, bar none!
Did I mention we moved to Bothell in 1980 and raised our 3 sons there although we no longer live there we've a brick downtown to prove we were and still are Bothell fans!
