Former President George H.W. Bush celebrates 92nd birthday


KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (AP) - Former President George H.W. Bush is celebrating his 92nd birthday with family on the Maine coast.

His chief of staff says it'll be a low-key event with his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, and other family members attending a private dinner Sunday in Kennebunkport. Among those is town for the event is former President George W. Bush, Bush's son.

Chief of Staff Jean Becker say the family patriarch is doing well after a scare last summer in which he broke a bone in his neck in a fall at his home. Doctors let it heal on its own.

Bush is the oldest living former president. The Republican served two terms as Ronald Reagan's vice president before being elected president in 1988.
