"President Barack Obama heading to Fresno for drought discussion"
FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- The White House confirmed to Action News President Obama is planning to visit Fresno next Friday, Feb. 14 to learn about the historic drought first-hand.
It will be President Obama's first visit to Fresno.
In the upcoming days, the White House is expected to reveal the details of the President's trip to Fresno, including setting a time and place for his visit.
In a statement (Rep. Jim) Costa said: "We've been wanting the president to come to the Valley for a long time. The federal agencies' willingness to work with the governor and state to deal with our short-term water problems is absolutely essential. I expect the president to talk about how he's going to cooperate with the governor to address problems not only in the Valley, but throughout California."

3. It could rain from now until Independence Day and the West would still be in a drought. . .
Viewed from the perspective of historical supply vs present-day need, California entered a period of permanent drought over 35 years ago. And the overall Western region developed from the start despite the harsh realities of this land.

4. He should pay a visit to Rimjob while he's there
and ask him how he likes his government-provided veterans' benefits.
