How can I add Google News to search bar?

I often wish to do just a news search and not a Web search. I cannot seem to find a search engine add-on to add to the search bar that will do this. It used to be that if I first did a Web search with the search string I wanted to search news with, then, when I clicked "News" from the Web search results, the same string would be entered for the strictly-news search; and that was OK. But nowadays, the search string is cleared when I switch to news. Fixing this would be an acceptable alternative to a news-only search engine entry for the search bar.

The response from cor-el did provide an answer. However, it remains that I was totally unsuccessful in finding it after clicking the "Manage Search Engines ..." option on the search engine drop down menu. It should not be so hard.
