08/09/2005: Dennis Hastert Corner Plays Host...
Yikes!!! Too close for comfort is this upcoming (Wednesday, August 10th) Close encounters of the presidential kind — Visits to Fox Valley, Kane County few and far between.
”…Local presidential visits are rare and usually memorable. From Ronald Reagan's 1982 helicopter visit to Geneva to Mary Todd Lincoln's stay in a Batavia insane asylum, White House residents have left their mark locally.
Some notable president and first lady visits:
1875: Mary Todd Lincoln committed to Belvue Place in Batavia
1903: Teddy Roosevelt in Aurora
1905: Teddy Roosevelt in Geneva
1959: Then Sen. John F. Kennedy in Aurora and Geneva
1982: Ronald Reagan in Geneva
1997: George and Barbara Bush in Elgin
President Bush will be at the Caterpillar Inc. plant on Route 31 in unincorporated Montgomery at 10 a.m. Wednesday morning to sign the recently approved transportation bill.”
Oh great...Our Fearless Leader to sign that PORKING OINKER of a Bill in Denny's Own Back Yard. I bet he's Most Pleased.
