CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) _ Officials in Chattanooga are busy preparing to host President Barack Obama for the first time since he took office.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports security officials are working to plan his route Tuesday and how his security will be handled. Obama is set to travel to the Amazon fulfillment center in the city to give the first in a series of planned policy speeches.

Donna Job, resident agent in charge at the Chattanooga office of the U.S. Secret Service, says the visit is ``a big deal'' for the city because Obama hasn't been there since being elected as president.
