Donations needed at red kettles in Fannin County

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is preparing for a trip to Texas, where he will attend Thursday's dedication of his predecessor's presidential library.
Obama and George W. Bush, for all their differences, share pieces of common ground.
From counterterrorism to immigration, from war strategy to the global fight against AIDS, Obama has followed Bush's path.
Even on tax policy, where Bush advocated lower tax rates for all and Obama pushed for higher rates on the rich, Bush's tax cuts for the middle class not only have survived under Obama, they have become permanent.
All in all, Obama inherited from his predecessor two military conflicts, a war on terror and a financial crisis. But he also inherited, and in time embraced, the means with which to confront them.
