It cost taxpayers an extra $32,000 to guard President Obama during his visit to Green Bay last Thursday. That about what local officials had expected. The city's police department said it spent more than $22,000 in officers' overtime for the president's town hall meeting on health...

President gives Green Bay 10-year-old girl a note for school absence

It won't be cheap for Green Bay to host President Obama Thursday. The Green Bay Press-Gazette figures that law enforcement will pay an extra $30,000 in overtime costs. That's based on the $31,000 paid in police overtime when President Bush spoke at Green Bay Resch's Center in 2004...

Letter: Critical of Obama
Dear Editor, The first 100 days of President Barack Obama's reign deserves a recap. No earmarks in Obama-speak means only 900 or thereabouts. Ethical and transparency means mainly tax cheats and lobbyists need apply for top jobs. Bipartisanship means no Republicans allowed.

Letter: Obama offers hope for all
Dear Editor, It's interesting that after two months in office, Barack Obama is being blamed for the state our country is in, indeed the "death" of our economy. He's hardly even moved into the White House, and he is expected to overcome eight years of the previous administration's...

Dear Editor, As the first two months of the Obama's Road to the Reign ends, it's time to add up a few casualties. Those who voted for "hope" and "change" (hook) are getting exactly what they deserved: a neophyte politician and former "community organizer" whose resume was so thin...

Ryan says actual cost of Obama spending plan could top $3 trillion
President Barack Obama has told local leaders to use their economic stimulus funds for one-time projects that won't be repeated. But according to U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., of Janesville, the real cost of the stimulus package will end up being $3 trillion if its spending is continued...

Letter: Another what 'if'
Dear Editor, I'd just love to do some "what-iffing" along with Patricia Sabin. In her Feb. 12 letter to the editor, she makes the assumption that Barack Obama won the election thanks to voters who chose him simply because he was African-American (actually, he's also half white, but...
