President Obama preached a message of hope about the economy here Thursday, praising employees gathered in a Caterpillar plant for soldiering through tough times, and he promised that help is on the way. But the audience was dotted with dispirited workers who had just gotten word of 20,000 layoffs coming at the heavy-equipment giant, and though community leaders and managers cheered Obama's words, others in the crowd were in no mood to join in.

New Hampshire Gov. Judd Gregg vetoed a bill that would repeal three 19th-Century state laws making abortion a crime, Assistant Secretary of State Robert Ambrose said. The veto came one day after the state Senate voted 13 to 11 to repeal the laws, which were written in 1848. The House passed the bill March 23. The laws have not been enforced since the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion. Gregg, a conservative Republican, has said he personally opposes abortion but strongly believes government should stay out of people's private business.

In a letter sent Monday to Johnson, Gregg invited the actor to consider New Hampshire as a location for future film projects.
