Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday endorsed Anaheim's bid to host the 2008 Republican National Convention, saying that a California convention would help bring business to the state. "I hope they have it in California. It would be terrific," Schwarzenegger told reporters. "They want to have it in Anaheim -- that's fine with me," though he added that San Francisco would be a "great" site as well. Anaheim is seeking both the Democratic and Republican conventions in 2008.

Pratik Vyas and his friends hit the dance floor early; they carried a roll of bandaging tape for the long night that lay ahead. For Navratri, an annual Hindu dance festival celebrating the triumph of good over evil, it is best to come prepared. "There's jumping and shoving and intricate movements that go back and forth," the 27-year-old graduate student from Norwalk said. "People get very passionate, and by the end of the night, your feet are beat. " On Saturday night, Vyas joined more than 2,000 Hindu Indians at the Anaheim Convention Center for Southern California's largest celebration of Navratri, an ancient tradition stretching nine days.

Six months after national Republicans issued a brutal self-assessment intended to cut their own path out of the wilderness, the limits of their progress were sharply apparent during the weekend state Republican convention. The report criticized Republicans for holding to the approaches advocated in the Ronald Reagan era without “figuring out what comes next”; the Anaheim convention featured the ritual genuflections to Reagan with rare mentions of successful politicians since.

Outfitted in a reddish-brown shirt and a polyester leisure suit that most closely resembled the color orange, James Stasheff was in his glory. This was his turf and these were his people--some of the brightest mathematical minds in the United States and Canada. And soon, he would be offering his own contribution to the gathering of rumpled suits --a lecture on "Algebra deformations as cohomological perturbations."

Some came hoping to catch a glimpse of the Enterprise crew. Other Trekkers were snapping up plastic photon phasers and life-sized posters of Capt. Jean-Luc Picard. Denise Fennell and Roy Henderson came to the Anaheim Convention Center's Star Trek Convention Saturday to show off. They were decked in full Klingon gear--rippled foreheads, long curly hair, silver battle weapons and, of course, spiked knuckle bands.

Celebrity, as it turns out, is in the eye of the beholder, and one of the fascinating aspects of the annual convention that brings together makers and sellers of all manner of musical gear for four days in Anaheim is that there are nearly as many universes of celebrity as there are stars within each. This year's National Assn. of Music Merchants convention - "the NAMM show" in the industry parlance - drew the usual plethora of household names from the music world, from Stevie Wonder and the Who's Pete Townshend to Beach Boys creative leader Brian Wilson, Elton John and "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson along with a host of other pop, R&B, jazz, folk, country, blues and world music acts.

How do you see the future of Anaheim as a tourism destination? There's absolutely no question in my mind that Anaheim has been the hub of tourism and will be that much more so in the coming years. If we combine that with what Disney's possibilities are, I think it just solidifies that idea. Is the Disneyland resort the engine that is driving the growth of this whole area? It is a significant part of it. In this given location, we really have the convention center and (Disney)

Hundreds of Iranian Americans are expected to attend a convention in Anaheim on Saturday that will explore the current state of Iranian politics after the election of new president Hassan Rouhani. Rouhani, 64, a cleric considered a moderate pragmatist, was elected in June in a landslide victory. He replaced outgoing two-term President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was barred from seeking a third term. Convention delegates are expected to discuss Iran's nuclear capabilities, human rights issues, religious persecution and the role of opposition groups.

Despite avenging a triple-overtime loss in last year's final, Los Angeles Windward players were surprisingly subdued after Wednesday's 85-57 domination of Gardena Serra in the girls' CIF Southern Section Division 4AA championship game at the Anaheim Convention Center. That's because this season the Wildcats have higher aspirations than just a section title - they want to win the inaugural state Open Division game as well. Judging by the way it handled the third-seeded Cavaliers, Windward could do just that.

Villanova guard Maalik Wayns, a sturdy junior who had been averaging more than 20 points a game, squared up for three-point shots, moved through the lane as if he were invisible only to appear at the basket for layups and generally created shots from everywhere and scored a career-high 29 points Friday. Yet it was St. Louis Coach Rick Majerus who was praising his players for their great defense, in particular against Wayns. The Billikens, who had already roundly defeated Washington from the Pac-12 Conference, grabbed a no-doubt 80-68 win against the Wildcats from the Big East and advanced to the championship game of the 76 Classic at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The popular, though independent Spanish-language ministry at the Crystal Cathedral, where people stand in line for hours to get a seat, may not move with the church's English-language services when the time comes. According to the terms of a $57.5-million deal approved Thursday night in Bankruptcy Court, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange will purchase the property and require Crystal Cathedral ministries to move to a new location within three years. The diocese plans to use the cathedral as its own after that; St. Callistus Catholic Church, also in Garden Grove, has been presented as an alternative site for the English-language ministries.

From the opening day of practice, Taft has been the heavy favorite to win its third City title, but 11-time champion Westchester has ambitions of pulling off the upset.
