Baltimore StarBaltimore Star | Breaking Baltimore News Service
The Baltimore Star is essentially a local Baltimore newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Baltimore, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets. The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy. We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding of the news we deliver. Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news. We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Baltimore, Maryland, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Baltimore Star.
U.S. President Barack Obama says he is focusing on ways to help the American middle class make economic gains, to bring them in line with the economic recovery of big business.
Obama said in his weekly address Saturday that he has been visiting cities across the country that are doing "interesting and creative" things to "re-ignite the engine" of middle class economic growth and make sure American citizens' hard work leads to a decent living.
In Baltimore this week, he said he visited a factory that is creating jobs at home by exporting digging equipment abroad. He also visited participants in a program that is giving training and guidance for low-income people to find work.
Obama said with unemployment the lowest it has been since 2008, with the auto industry thriving and the energy sector booming, it is time to focus on creating more good, middle-class jobs. He said he will be visiting more American cities in the coming weeks to continue working on job creation, education and" building new ladders of opportunity" for American workers.
In the Republican Party address, Representative Andy Harris of the eastern state of Maryland says "red tape" in the president's health care law passed several years ago will drive up costs for Americans.
