Former President Carter still in Ohio hospital

CLEVELAND (AP) - Former President Jimmy Carter is canceling scheduled book signing events in Washington as doctors continue their observations following Carter's overnight stay in Ohio for an upset stomach.

Kathy Daneman, publicity manager at Farrar, Straus & Giroux, said no decision had been made yet about an event planned at a Columbia, S.C. bookstore Thursday.  Carter had been scheduled for two events in Washington Wednesday, including one at the Smithsonian Institution, to promote his book "White House Diary."

Book signings in a Cleveland suburb and Durham, N.C., were canceled Tuesday when the 85-year-old Carter fell ill on a flight to Cleveland.

Christina Karas, spokeswoman at MetroHealth Medical Center, said Wednesday that doctors recommended additional observation during the day but Carter feels normal and looks forward to resuming his schedule soon.
