WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will change the name of North America's tallest mountain peak from Mount McKinley to Denali, the White House said Sunday, a major symbolic gesture to Alaska Natives on the eve of the president's historic visit to Alaska.
DENVER (AP) — His two Pro Bowl receivers haven't been together on the field with him all offseason. He hasn't found the end zone all month. And he's coming off his first three-sack outing since mid-2013.
Mount McKinley, the tallest of North America's mountains, is officially being renamed Denali, the White House said Sunday, on the eve of President Barack Obama's historic visit to Alaska.
