State Sen. Frank O'Bannon said Gov. Robert Orr's A+ Education Program was an important step, but only the first needed to improve the state's educational process. He called for more educational programs for pre-school children and said the ISTEP testing program may be a "mis-step" in the educational process if it shifts the emphasis of education from the individual student to the comparison of classes and schools for performance-based awards. "We need accountability," said O'Bannon. "We need better resources and more incentives. The A+ was a big step for O'Bannon said remediation is education, but it's not a quick needed in Indiana schools, but he fix." questions the need for retention. Sen. Frank O'Bannon campaigned in Logansport He cites studies that indicate retention destroys some degree of self-esteem in a student. "None of them (studies) say retention is a good tool." O'Bannon said education must continue to be the state's priority because it serves as the basis for economic development and new jobs. The Corydon newspaper publisher said he is making campaign stops statewide to reaffirm his withdrawal from the Indiana governor's race even though his name is on the ballot. O'Bannon, who agreed to endorse Bayh when he withdrew from the governor's race Jan. 20, said his name was kept on the ballot because of the Bayh residency case. Last week, a judge ruled in Bayh's favor, making the secretary of state eligible to run in the May 3 primary against former Kokomo Mayor Steve Daily.

(AP) The 8-pound package was a special delivery, even for workers of United Parcel Service. The 8 pounds of baby boy was born to Bob Turner, a UPS delivery driver, and his wife, Deanna. Unfortunately, Turner didn't make the delivery. The job went to his boss, Bloomington UPS supervisor Pern Lincoln. Mrs. Turner called UPS about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday to say she was starting labor and asked that her husband be notified. Lincoln called back about 15 minutes later to say Turner would be home in 45 minutes. "She said that was fine," said Lincoln. "But the way she said it indicated to me that there was some concern." Another 15 minutes went by, and Lincoln called again. This time, Mrs. Turner said she needed to go to the hospital immediately. Lincoln rushed to the Turner home. While he was dialing an ambulance, the baby arrived. ServiceMASTER.
