Officials: 1 dead, 134 rescued from Lake Erie ice

OAK HARBOR, Ohio - Cell phones rang and word was passed to fishermen out on a distant stretch of Lake Erie's iced-over waters: A crack had widened in the ice, trapping everyone on a miles-wide floe that was drifting away from the Ohio shoreline.

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama's economic recovery plan is on track to pass the Senate after a handful of moderate Republicans and Democrats forced more than $100 billion in cuts in programs that wouldn't create many jobs right away.
