WASHINGTON (AP) _ The mayor of the southwest Kansas town
Greensburg will get an upfront seat to President Barack Obama's
speech to a joint session of Congress.

Bob Dixson will watch the president's speech from first Lady Michelle Obama's box Tuesday night. He leads a community that was devastated by a tornado in May 2008 and has been rebuilding as an
energy-efficient ``green town.''

The guests also will include a few students, a couple of governors, members of the military and several business leaders. Also invited was Lilly Ledbetter, the subject of a discrimination case that led to one of the first laws for the new administration on fair pay.
