Faithful mourn death of Mormon president - Artist, designer Schreckengost dies - Paulson pushes Senate for stimulus deal - McCain, Romney lob "liberal" in final Fla. stretch - Kennedy endorses Obama: 'change in air'.



Faithful mourn death of Mormon president
Thousands of believers were in mourning Monday following the death of Gordon B. Hinckley, the humble head of the Mormon church who added millions of new members and labored long to burnish the faith's image as a world religion. An announcement of his successor was not expected for days.
Hinckley, the 15th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, died Sunday of complications arising from old age, church spokesman Mike Otterson said. He was 97.

Artist, designer Schreckengost dies
Viktor Schreckengost, an artist and prolific industrial designer whose ubiquitous works ranged from familiar toys and White House porcelain to innovative trucks and even lawn mowers, has died. He was 101.
Schreckengost died Saturday while visiting family in Tallahassee, Fla., said Brenda Jackson of the Viktor Schreckengost Foundation on Sunday.
Schreckengost, a 2006 winner of the National Medal of Arts, was best known for his 1930s "Jazz Bowl" series.

Paulson pushes Senate for stimulus deal
President Bush's chief negotiator on an economic aid deal said Sunday the Senate should quickly get behind a plan or risk drawing the resentment of a frustrated public.
The president and House leaders have agreed on a proposal to provide tax rebate checks to 117 million families and give businesses $50 billion in incentives to invest in new plants and equipment. The goal is to help head off a recession and boost consumer confidence.

McCain, Romney lob "liberal" in final Fla. stretch
In a tight battle in Florida, John McCain and Mitt Romney competed to stick each other with the liberal tag, a political death sentence among conservative Republicans whose votes could be decisive in Tuesday's presidential voting.
Republican candidates scrambled across the large state in a final hunt for votes on Monday on the eve of their biggest nomination test yet in the most wide open White House race in more than 50 years.

Kennedy endorses Obama — 'change in air'
Summoning memories of his slain brother, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy led two generations of the First Family of Democratic politics Monday in endorsing Barack Obama for the White House, declaring, "I feel change is in the air."
Obama is a man of rare "grit and grace," Kennedy said in remarks salted with scarcely veiled criticism of the Illinois senator's chief rival for the presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, as well as her husband, the former president.
