Estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau indicate that the population of Nicholson grew by 8.87 percent from July 1, 2007, to July 1, 2008.
If true, that makes Nicholson easily the fastest-growing community in Jackson County, outpacing Pendergrass, which ranked second at 7.53 percent. Commerce brought up the rear at 2.01 percent growth during the period.
Nicholson Mayor Ronnie Maxwell expressed doubts about the growth rate.
