  • Sen. Warren's book focuses on working family woes

    Updated: 3 hr ago

    BOSTON (AP) — At the beginning of her new book, "A Fighting Chance," U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren describes the moment she grew up. She was 12, living in Oklahoma with her family, and noticed her mother putting on a dress for a job interview to answer telephones at a local Sears store. Warren's father had had a heart attack and bills were piling up. Her mother's stubborn insistence to hold onto the family home not only sets the young girl on the path to adulthood but also lays out the larger theme of Warren's life work: the struggle of working families to get a fair deal in an economic and political system rigged against them.

  • Big names among prospective Buffalo Bills buyers

    Updated: 4 hr ago

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is prepared to make a bid to buy the Buffalo Bills. Donald Trump's on board, too. Don't discount the family of Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs. And include New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi's name for added spice. It's not every day — or every year — an NFL franchise goes on the market as the Bills are, following owner Ralph Wilson's death last month. Wilson's wishes to have the team sold rather than passed on to his family raise the possibility of the Bills relocating from the city that's been home for more than 50 years. Toronto and Los Angeles are potential landing spots because owners would have an opportunity to make more money than in Buffalo, the NFL's

  • Anita Baker countersues home improvement company

    Updated: 4 hr ago

    DETROIT (AP) — Grammy Award-winning singer Anita Baker has countersued a company that says it hasn't been paid for work done on her Detroit-area home. The Detroit Free Press reports (http://on.freep.com/1gJy7lA) Saturday that Baker's attorney says lawyers for Ray A. Smith Painting & Decorating "intended to put her in as embarrassing a light as possible." The 2011 lawsuit against Baker led to a warrant for her arrest, but the warrant was dismissed last month. The company claims Baker owes it $15,000 for work done on her Grosse Pointe, Mich., home, but the singer's lawyer has said Baker didn't know she had been sued. A hearing related to the original lawsuit is scheduled for April 25 in Wayne County Circuit Court.

  • Sutton Foster and Jeanine Tesori bond backstage

    Updated: 8 hr ago

    NEW YORK (AP) — There were two visitors to Sutton Foster's Broadway dressing room the other day. One was a new friend, the other an old one. One makes beautiful music. One just barks. Foster was entertaining composer Jeanine Tesori, who has written the music for Foster's latest show, and Mabel, her new fluffy pup rescued from a Texas animal shelter and just spayed. "She'll just lick you to death," Foster warns about the terrier-and-dachshund mix. The mood is decidedly mellow backstage at the American Airlines Theatre, where Foster and Tesori are putting the final touches on "Violet," a musical that marks their third Broadway collaboration. "Is this our third?" asks Tesori. "It feels like more because I've

  • White House on deport Bieber petition: No comment

    Yesterday

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House has two words for those who want President Barack Obama to deport Justin Bieber: No comment. Nearly 275,000 people signed an Internet petition calling the Canadian-born teen idol reckless and asking Obama to revoke his green card. That's far more than required to merit an official response through the White House's "We the People" program. The White House says it's sorry to disappoint, but it won't be commenting. It's citing a caveat that lets the White House decline to address certain petitions. But the White House is using the occasion to argue that an immigration overhaul could shrink deficits by nearly $1 trillion over two decades. The White House says that's equivalent to 12.
