SHORT TAKES : Tammy Wynette in Tenn. Hospital

From Times Wire Services

Tammy Wynette has been hospitalized with bronchitis but is expected to be allowed home in less than a week, a spokesman says.

The singer went to the emergency room of Breech Medical Center in Lebanon, Mo., one night and was transferred to a hospital in Nashville, said Fletcher Foster, a spokesman for Epic Records in Nashville.

The family asked that the hospital not be identified.

Wynette, 48, canceled a performance Saturday in Branson, Mo., because of the illness.
