On Jan. 18, St. Andrew Nativity School had a surprise visitor. Mayor Charlie Hales stopped by because it was his birthday; he heard it was also the birthday of Nativity 6th grader Justece.

The student body was able to leave study hall early to sing Happy Birthday to the mayor and their schoolmate and enjoy birthday cake, sliced by the politician and the student as they stood side by side. Many students had their photos taken with the mayor.

The visit was coordinated by Nancy Hales, the mayor's wife, and Grace Uwagbae, Justece's mentor in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Sorry but this fella is far from Christian! Christians imitate the life & teachings of Christ & destroying "homeless camps" is the exact OPPOSITE of what Jesus would do!
