About two dozen activists held vigil today in front of the federal building in Syracuse urging President Obama to reject the expansion of the Keystone pipeline. The action follows the release late last week of the State Department’s final environmental impact review, on which the president is expected to base his decision. Long-time activist Sandy Porter says the process harms the environment from the time huge earth movers dig out the tar sands, to where they process it.
President Obama continued his bus tour of Upstate New York today after spending the night in Auburn. He spent the morning working out at the YMCA and shooting a few hoops with a youth basketball group before hitting the road for SUNY Binghamton.
President Barack Obama riled up a cheering, mostly supportive crowd with a message that he's ready to make it easier to go to college, in his first visit to Syracuse. Obama repeatedly made the case foe the importance of a college education.
