  • Appeals court strikes health insurance requirement

    ATLANTA (AP) — A federal appeals court panel on Friday struck down the requirement in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul package that virtually all Americans must carry health insurance or face penalties.

    The divided three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the so-called individual mandate, which is considered the centerpiece of the law, siding with 26 states that had sued to block the law. But the panel didn't go as far as a lower court that had invalidated the entire overhaul as unconstitutional.

  • Girl obtains restraining order against alleged stalker

    A state district judge granted an order of protection to a 15-year-old Los Alamos girl who fears a 42-year-old pianist has been stalking her since they met at a musical theater camp in 2010.

    District Judge Mary Marlowe-Sommer issued the restraining order against Solon Pierce of Wisconsin Thursday. The order prohibits Pierce, who was an instructor at the Michigan-based musical theater camp last summer, from contacting the girl or anyone she knows for five years and he is barred from being within 100 yards of her.

  • Day of turmoil for GOP -- and that's before debate

    AMES, Iowa (AP) — What a debate warm-up. Mitt Romney created a stir Thursday when he declared to Iowans that "corporations are people." Then Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who could present a major challenge to front-runner Romney, made clear he was entering the race for the Republican president nomination.

    It all happened a few hours before the GOP presidential debate in Iowa — an eight-candidate spectacle that was missing the Republican field's newest member. Perry was hundreds of miles away in Austin finalizing plans for a weekend announcement tour.

  • Dow up 423 as Wall Street whipsaws again

    NEW YORK (AP) — Lurching higher in its week of whiplash, Wall Street recorded one of its biggest gains of all time Thursday after investors seized on a few signs that the economy might just be able to avoid a new recession.

    The Dow Jones industrial average soared 423 points. It had already fallen 634 points Monday, risen 429 Tuesday and fallen 519 Wednesday. Never before has the Dow had four 400-point swings in a row.

    The pieces of news that sent Wall Street rocketing higher were not exactly blockbusters: Cisco Systems said its profit was better than expected, the job market got a little better, and France tried to raise confidence in its shaken banking system.
