Suburb to name street for Obama

There will soon be an "Obama Drive" in suburban Calumet Park.

The village board voted unanimously to rename a stretch of 127th street between Winchester Avenue and Carpenter Street. The new street signs will go up August 21.

The south suburb is apparently the first in the country to honor the president with his own street.

President Obama represented Calumet Park when he was a state senator.
