PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - There's been yet another rescue in
Haiti, a week after the deadly earthquake. A Mexican rescue team
today found an elderly Haitian woman alive in the ruins of the
residence of Haiti's Roman Catholic archbishop. The archbishop was
killed. Earlier, other teams pulled two Haitian women from a
collapsed university building.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - The U.S. military commanders in
charge of the main airport in Haiti are again being criticized by
an international aid group. Doctors Without Borders says the
controllers there have turned away a planeload of medical equipment
three times since Sunday despite assurances that the plane could
land. The group says five patients died because the supplies
couldn't be delivered.

WASHINGTON (AP) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that Congress
will soon produce a health overhaul bill, regardless of who wins
the Massachusetts special Senate election. Pelosi spoke as
Massachusetts voters were at the polls, picking the successor to
the late Ted Kennedy. That seat represents the 60th vote Democrats
need to get a health bill through the Senate.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says it still expects Democrat
Martha Coakley to win today's special Senate election in
Massachusetts, despite polls showing a surge for Republican Scott
Brown. As for whether President Barack Obama could have done more
to help Coakley, adviser David Axelrod says the White House did
everything it was asked to do.

NEW YORK (AP) - Investors may be betting on the Republican.
They've moved back into stocks today on hopes that the election in
Massachusetts will sap power from Senate Democrats and make it
harder for President Barack Obama to make changes to health care.
Stocks rebounded from a slide last week to finish at new 15-month
highs.
