Buffalo, NY – President Obama likely received a number of gifts during his appearance in Buffalo last week. The most visible one was the red wristband family members of Flight 3407 victims gave to the President. He was seen wearing it during his speech on the economy. Another gift came from EB Iron Art, which crafted a work of steel art depicting the presidential seal. It was handed over to Congressman Brian Higgins in hopes that he would present it to Mr. Obama.

On this week's Buffalo Rising Roundtable, Newell Nussbaumer, Christa Glennie Seychew and Mark Scott talked about the excitement created by the President's visit.
