Large pipes ( 36 inches in diameter ) for carrying crude oil have been unloaded in a field near the TransCanada Corp. pipeline terminal on the south edge of Cushing. Residents and businesses of Cushing are preparing for the arrival of President Barack Obama this week. The president will make a brief stop at a TransCanada Corp. pipe yard northwest of town, as part of a four-state tour to promote the administration's energy policy. Ruth Ann Johnson, 73, who served 50 years as the town's librarian, said the Payne County community of 8,000 will welcome President Obama on his first visit to Oklahoma after being elected in 2008.
