(Washington, DC)----U.S. Rep. Howard Coble (R-NC) issued the following statement on the health of former Guilford County Commissioner Billy Yow, as he recovers from a serious head injury:

“I am hoping and praying that my good friend Billy Yow makes a complete recovery from the serious injury that he suffered last night.  Knowing Billy like I do, I am sure that he will display the strength and determination he has shown throughout his life as he battles back to good health.

“I have always referred to Billy as the Commissioner with the beguiling smile, and I have always meant that in the most complimentary way.  Displaying that beguiling smile, Billy always let you know that he didn’t take himself too seriously.  He has a zest for life, and he will need every ounce of that energy as he faces the health obstacles that lie ahead.

“I can’t wait for Billy to walk out of the hospital –displaying that beguiling smile – for all to see.  That’s when we will know that Billy Yow is back and ready to take on his next challenge.”
