BAY The Craighead County town of Bay is the latest in Arkansas to display the national motto "In God We Trust" on public property.
Bay's council voted earlier this month on a resolution that says the motto should be displayed "permanently and prominently" in city hall. Bay's recorder-treasurer, Sandi Ladd Griffin, hung the display in the building's foyer last week.
According to Preston Dunn of Blytheville, the founder of the website www.ingodwetrust-arkansas.org, at least 17 other Arkansas towns have approved similar displays.
Bay Mayor Darrell Kirby says city leaders had heard about the displays and wanted to do the same in their town.
