Authorities in Philadelphia will suspend foreclosure sales of homes whose owners have fallen behind on adjustable-rate sub-prime loan payments -- potential relief for tens of thousands of struggling debtors. The Philadelphia City Council on Thursday called on Sheriff John Green to stop the sales to give borrowers more time to seek a settlement that would prevent them from losing their homes. Philadelphia becomes the first U.S. city to halt foreclosure sales in the current crisis, although Cleveland and Baltimore are considering similar measures, said ACORN, an advocacy group for low-income families.

In an uncommon display of political unity, leaders of the U.S. evangelical movement joined with moderate and liberal religious groups Monday to urge President Bush to boost development aid to Africa.

Republican Senate nominee Carly Fiorina has maintained a vigorous pace on the campaign trail this summer, but at the traditional kickoff to the general election she is heading to Israel for what her aides describe as a "personal trip. " The Labor Day weekend tour is a surprising diversion for the first-time candidate, who weighed in on U.S.-Israeli relations during her primary campaign but has kept a laser-like focus on job losses and rising government spending while sparring with Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer this summer.

If Phil Burress has his way, Ohio will be a battleground this fall for more than just the presidential candidates. It will be the scene of a moral struggle over the future of marriage, an institution on the front lines of a culture war that some conservatives want to wage in this election year. Burress, a conservative activist in Cincinnati, is laboring to put before Ohio's voters a state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriages.

TUCSON - As the Dodgers prepared to play a charity game Thursday in remembrance of a young shooting victim, Manager Don Mattingly said he favored a ban on assault rifles. Mattingly was initially reluctant to talk about gun control. “Politics now?” Mattingly asked. “I don't know if I really want to get into it. I'm just not a gun guy. I never hunted as a kid. So I'm not much for the topic. I know we have coaches who love them; they think it'd be crazy if they weren't allowed to have them.” But Mattingly soon found himself talking about assault weapons.
