12:44 p.m. Parkville Patch reader Tonika Garibaldi submitted a great photograph of President Obama as he waved to onlookers who lined Hiss Avenue. If you waited outside, but missed the moment—Tonika captures it here perfectly. Thanks, Tonika! 11 a.m. Talk about a whirlwind visit. President Obama departed Parkville as quickly as he arrived.
