Obama to Greene County?

In a bit of wild speculation, two Times-Union writers are passing around a story that President Barack Obama might visit Earlton in Greene County. Steve Barnes says Damon Baehrel the owner of The Basement Bistro in Earlton called the paper reporting that the White House staff called him to ask if he would be interested in hosting the First Couple. “Of course I said yes — and they’re going to give me some possible dates,” Baehrel said. He hopes to be able to host the first couple in the summer, when his gardens are at their peak.
