(AP Photo/Nati Harnik)By BRETT ZONGKER and RON TODT Associated Press PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Americans dipped into the water, went to the movies and rode the subway just to be in air conditioning Saturday for relief from unrelenting heat that has killed 30 people across half the country. The heat sent temperatures soaring over 100 degrees in several cities, including a record 105 in Washington, St. Louis (106), and Indianapolis (104), buckled highways and derailed a Washington-area train even as another round of...

By BEN FELLER and JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press PITTSBURGH (AP) - Disappointing job growth jolted the presidential campaign four months before Election Day, and the candidates quickly put their vastly different views on display, underscoring the economy as the central issue between President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney. Obama sought consolation from hiring figures that showed at least some job growth still under way, calling them a "step in the right direction" and pleading with voters to stick with him. Romney spoke of misery across the nation, warned Obama would do nothing but deepen it and addressed a disgruntled middle class...

By BEN FELLER AP White House Correspondent MAUMEE, Ohio (AP) - Campaigning through swing state Ohio by bus, President Barack Obama cast his re-election bid as a bet on the American worker Thursday, even as he braced for a Friday unemployment report that will help set battle lines for the hot summer to come. The monthly unemployment numbers could alter or harden voters' views of Obama's core re-election argument that he pulled the U.S. back from recession while Republican Mitt Romney embraces policies that led to an economic near-collapse. A weak report could undermine Obama's position, while improvement could help the president -...

By P. SOLOMON BANDA and THOMAS PEIPERT Associated Press COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Firefighters went from one smoldering pile to another Friday in search of bodies in the nearly 350 homes burned to the ground by the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history.

By P. SOLOMON BANDA Associated Press COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.

Among those urgently evacuated Tuesday evening were residents at the U.S. Air Force Academy. The fire burned about 10 acres of...

The storm knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of customers, though most had electricity restored by the time Debby left the state. The tropical storm formed in the Gulf on Saturday and...
