WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Paul Ryan says he will seek changes to a GOP health care bill as he works to build support ahead of a vote scheduled for Thursday. Ryan tells "Fox News Sunday" that one change he'd like to see is more assistance for people in their 50s and 60s, who face higher health care costs. A Congressional Budget Office analysis last week concluded that older people would likely pay higher premiums under the current plan.

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Authorities have made more than 1,000 calls to residents in and around Boulder, Colorado, ordering them to leave their homes as a wildfire burns in the mountains just west of the university town. The Boulder Office of Emergency Management says additional evacuations may be called for if conditions get worse. The fire has burned 30 to 50 acres just a couple of miles from downtown Boulder. Several aircraft are making drops to battle the flames.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A SpaceX capsule is back on Earth with a full load of space station science samples. The Dragon cargo ship parachuted into the Pacific today off the Southern California coast, 5 ½ hours after astronauts set it free from the International Space Station. The Dragon flew to the space station a month ago from the same Florida launch pad used for NASA's Apollo moon shots. It took up more than 5,000 pounds of supplies and brought back just as much in completed experiments and used equipment.

WOODS HOLE, Mass. (AP) — Researchers are planning what they say is the first manned submersible expedition to the Titanic since 2005. OceanGate Expeditions says the seven-week research mission will depart from Newfoundland, Canada, in May 2018. OceanGate says the goal of the mission is to assess the condition of the wreck and document — but not collect — artifacts at the protected site. Experts from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts are also taking part. They hope to generate a 3D photographic model of the wreck using modern subsea imaging technology.

NEW YORK (AP) — Pulitzer Prize-winning author and columnist Jimmy Breslin has died. A longtime fixture in New York journalism, Breslin was known for exposing corruption, corresponding with the Son of Sam and being pulled from a car and stripped to his underwear by Brooklyn rioters in the '90s. His stepdaughter says Breslin died today at his Manhattan home of complications from pneumonia. He was 88.
