It is high time for our nice city of Fort Smith to see a great change by having our very first African-American, lifetime resident running for mayor. I, like so many others in town, believe that Mr. George "Billy" McGill can, and will, be the best mayor ever. Just take a ride on the north, south and east sides. There's a "sign" in all the signs. Billy's outstanding character and background along with his highly educational skills and political success, no doubt he's the best. Thank God for most that his "color" isn't an issue to vote for him early and on Aug. 14.

I personally have always admired and respected Billy, and besides he's another nice-looking member of our family. So cheers, hats off, two thumbs up and most importantly, thank you Jesus for hearing and answering our prayers. Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. If we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we asked of Him (I John 5:14, 15).
