Bush bash: Elder ex-president marks 90th birthday

Former President George H.W. Bush is celebrating his 90th birthday in Maine.

   A family spokesman says a private dinner Thursday evening features a guest list of more than 200 friends and relatives.

   Bush has spent every summer in Kennebunkport except during World War II, when he was a naval aviator.

   As president, Bush was known for jogging, tennis and fast-paced golf at the "summer White House." He's now using a wheelchair because of a form of Parkinsonism that has robbed him of control of his legs. Ken Raynor, a golf pro and friend, said he's lost his mobility but "he hasn't lost his heart."

   Five years ago, Bush celebrated his birthday by jumping from an airplane.
