She talked for a few minutes, occasionally checking on her son. She then called her husband to relay some information and, while talking to him, looked again for her son. "I noticed the door was open and Bronson was gone." Engquist said she ran out of the apartment and building and saw a long-haired white man carrying her son away.

Ninth St. Lafayette, IN 742-7302 'A i I'si PFT? Gov. Evan Bayh said the ice storm March 12 and 13 caused the deaths of seven people, injured several others, and caused $80 million in damage to power lines of utility companies and rural coops.

"The rural electrics cannot absorb that kind of cost," Jontz said. He said rural counties such as Newton, Carroll and White were hit hardest by the storm, and they are the ones which can least afford the cleanup. So far, 26 counties have been declared eligible for federal disaster funds. 1 This is a weekly special report about what's happening in Lafayette-area classrooms.
