GOV. BILL OWENS TOUTS EDUCATION REFORM IN WASHINGTON

BY David Phinney

Republican Gov. Bill Owens touted Colorado's "school report card" program on Friday, explaining that by grading the performance of schools, the state is fueling a competitive spirit among educators to excel in teaching. Speaking before the Heritage Foundation, an influential conservative think tank, Owens told a sympathetic audience that the grading of schools, combined with the ability of parents to register their children in any public school throughout the state, is "really, really working" because it pressures educators to perform more effectively.

Texas Voters in Favor of Ashcroft

BY Sarah Ovaska

Controversy over John Aschroft's nomination to become the next attorney general isn't just on Capitol Hill. The offices of Sens. Phil Gramm and Kay Bailey Hutchison have been fielding calls, letters and faxes from constituents regarding the nomination, mostly in favor of Ashcroft. Gramm's office received over 9,000 pieces of correspondence about the attorney general hearings, a normal amount for a controversial issue. Approximately 60 percent were in favor of confirmation and 40 percent were opposed.
