Bee publishes available details about President Obama’s Fresno visit

From this evening’s Fresno Bee:

President Barack Obama’s visit to Fresno on Friday may make for a great media opportunity, but save for a chosen few it will be all but impossible for the public to get a glimpse of him.

On this president’s first-ever visit to the central San Joaquin Valley, the best that most people can hope for is to see either Air Force One, the presidential jumbo jet, as it arrives and departs from the Fresno Yosemite International Airport, or Marine One, one of the military helicopters that will ferry Obama to and from a yet-to-be revealed site where he is expected to talk about California’s severe drought.

The White House is not publicly releasing a schedule or any other details of Obama’s visit.

Obama’s arrival and departure from Fresno Yosemite International will be closed to the public, according to a spokeswoman for the airport, and no other public events are anticipated during the visit, according to the White House.
