President Obama to speak at Desert Vista High

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - President Barack Obama will be at Desert Vista High School in the Ahwatukee area of Phoenix next week to give a speech on housing and the middle class.

Obama will be in Arizona on Tuesday as part of a tour highlighting his plans for the nation's economic recovery.

The White House announced his trip earlier this week but didn't release the site of his speech until Friday.

Obama has delivered campaign-style speeches in the past two weeks in Tennessee, Florida and Missouri on investing in infrastructure, lowering the cost of college loans and overhauling the tax code.

The Democratic president also has criticized Republicans for not doing enough to help struggling families.

His speech revisits themes that he spoke about during his first presidential visit to Arizona in February 2009.

    A 16-foot-long exotic snake reportedly slithering around New Jersey's largest lake is apparently a suburban legend. Or the snake just isn't hungry. The state has stopped looking for the reptile after scientists failed to find any evidence of it in Lake Hopatcong and traps baited with chicken were left untouched. Three unconfirmed sightings this month of a snake, perhaps an anaconda as long as 16 feet, raised concerns among visitors and swimmers.
