TOKYO (AP) -- Embattled Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama resigned Wednesday to improve his party's chances in an election next month, after his popularity plunged over his broken campaign promise to move a U.S. Marine base. Finance Minister Naoto Kan, who has a clean and defiant image, emerged as a likely successor. He signaled he intends to run for leadership of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan at a party meeting to be held Friday. Sweeping into office just eight months ago by defeating the long-ruling conservatives, Hatoyama captured the imagination of many Japanese voters with his promises to bring change and transparency to government, as the country grappled with economic stagnation and an aging, shrinking population.

LONDON (AP) -- British Prime Minister Gordon Brown made a dramatic bid to keep his beleaguered Labour Party in power after it was punished in a national election, announcing Monday he will resign by September at the latest in hopes the third-place Liberal Democrats will join his party in a coalition government. Brown's startling news conference upped the ante in talks between the Conservatives, who won the most seats in Thursday's election but not a majority in Parliament, and the Liberal Democrats, whose third-place finish still leaves them kingmakers.

Hancock became the fourth Washington County school to undergo a change in the boys basketball coaching ranks on Friday. Athletic director Bill Sterner said that Ron Hose, the Panthers' coach since the 2006-07 season, had submitted his resignation. "He told the kids after the Fort Hill playoff game he thought that was finished," Sterner said. "Then he told me he wanted to wait, but he works really hard with the little league up here, and once that started I think he realized that was it. " Hose succeeded Jeff Spielman, who had retired from coaching boys basketball after the 2004-05 season, the last winning season at Hancock when it went 20-4.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- It took an emotional team meeting, a sleepless night and about an hour of practice for coach Urban Meyer to change his mind about resigning at Florida. With his health and his family still major concerns, Meyer withdrew his resignation Sunday and decided instead to take an indefinite leave of absence. He will coach the fifth-ranked Gators in the Sugar Bowl against No. 4 Cincinnati on Jan. 1, then take some time off in hopes of alleviating recurring chest pains.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- While his coaching successes mounted and his tough-as-nails reputation grew, Urban Meyer admits there was one thing he didn't pay much attention to -- his health.

And so on Saturday, exactly three weeks later, the 45-year-old Meyer shook all of college football by saying he was stepping down. He resigned after five seasons and two national titles.
