Mayor renames street for Bieber

The 11-year-old "mayor for a day" of a Dallas-area city knows what her first major act in office will be, renaming part of Main Street for teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber.
A temporary sign for "Justin Bieber Way" will go up during a ceremony in Forney, Texas.
City Manager Brian Brooks says the request came from 11-year-old Caroline Gonzalez, who won a contest meant to get young people interested in municipal government.
She is active in student council, recycling and community service projects.
Brooks says city officials were not able to reach Bieber to invite him to Forney, which is east of Dallas.
The young politician's act will not cost the community much. Officials say the sign was made for about $20.
