Advocates go to ballot box to boost schools, services (06/27/04)
Trying to funnel money toward long-starved programs, ballot questions in several states hope to persuade voters to bypass reluctant lawmakers and free up cash for emergency medical care, education, services for the poor and more.

OTTAWA -- Embarrassed by financial scandal and hard-pressed by a newly united conservative opposition, Canada's Liberal Party heads into national elections Monday in grave danger of losing the parliamentary majority it has held since 1993.

The major league baseball season hasn't yet reached its halfway point, but right now the Cardinals are doing considerably better than most prognosticators thought they would.
