Hello to you, I'm Creshon Saunders at the CNN.com newsroom in Atlanta; here is a look at what's happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

Severe storms ripped across Spain Saturday leaving down trees, darkness and destruction behind. The winds are also responsible for several deaths across the country. Four boys were killed and nine others were hurt when hurricane force winds blew down the roof at a sports complex outside Barcelona. Spanish media say six other people were killed in wind-related accidents in the country.

President Barack Obama used his first weekly radio address since taking office to urge quick action on his economic stimulus1 plan. Obama says his plan would not only save taxpayers2 more than two billion dollars but would create the jobs and incomes needed to jumpstart the economy.

"It's a plan that will save or create three to four million jobs over the next few years and one that recognizes both the paradox4 and the promise of this moment. The fact that there are millions of Americans trying to find work, even as, all around the country there's so much work to be done. That's why this is not just a short-term program to boost employment."

Republicans though are not so sure about this plan. They're concerned about the $825 billion price tag. House Minority leader John Boehner says the Democratic-backed plan is full of pork-barrel spending that will not provide the economic relief Americans need right now.

 Their plan also provides government-funded paychecks -- disguised as tax cuts -- for those who don't pay income taxes. All told, the plan would spend a whopping 275,000 dollars in taxpayer3 dollars for every new job it aims to create, saddling each and every household with 6,700 dollars in additional debt - paid for by our children and grandchildren.
The President meanwhile hopes to have the stimulus bill on his desk by February 16th.

 The attorney for embattled Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich says he's had enough and he will not defend Blagojevich. Blagojevich is facing federal corruption5 charges as you know. No exact reason was given for Ed Genson's withdrawal6, last week Genson said he would not take part in Blagojevich's upcoming Senate impeachment7 trial that starts Monday.

College Basketball is mourning the loss of one of its greatest coaches, North Carolina State women's coach Kay Yow died Saturday of complications from breast cancer. Yow was initially8 diagnosed with cancer back in 1987.She is one of only six women coaches to win 700 games. Her teams won four ACC titles and appeared in one Final Four back in 1998.Yow also led the 1988 women's Olympic team to a gold medal. Kay Yow was 66 years old.

Those are the headlines this hour, for more on these stories and other news of the day, CNN is your source online, on TV, even when you're on the go.
