Some are calling it a slam dunk, but Republican Richard Ackerman is taking nothing for granted in his race for the 72nd Assembly District seat Tuesday against Democrat Shirley Hafner. The winner will replace veteran Ross Johnson, now a state senator, and finally bring the state Assembly to full strength after nine months of vacancies in districts around the state. An Ackerman victory would also give the Republican Party its coveted majority in the state's lower house.

State Senate GOP leader Jim Brulte, who played pivotal roles in toppling legendary Assembly Speaker Willie Brown in 1994 and resisting Gov. Gray Davis' tax initiatives, will step down from his post within two weeks. The Rancho Cucamonga Republican, who must leave the Senate this year because of term limits, told his 14 party colleagues of his decision in a private meeting Wednesday. In an interview, Brulte said he wanted Sen.

State Republicans won back control of the Assembly with the election Tuesday of former Fullerton Mayor Richard Ackerman over Democrat Shirley Hafner for north Orange County's 72nd District seat. Ackerman's victory gives the GOP a 41-to-39 edge in the Assembly and the upper hand it lost in December with the defection of Paul V. Horcher, the maverick Diamond Bar Republican-turned-Independent who was recalled in the spring.

Republican Richard Ackerman, a Fullerton attorney, and Democrat Shirley Hafner, an administrator at UC Irvine Medical Center, are headed for a September runoff for the vacant Assembly seat in the 72nd District in North County. With all 154 precincts counted, Ackerman and Hafner, who also lives in Fullerton, were the winners in their respective political parties to replace Ross Johnson, now a state senator.

North County may be solid Republican territory, but the Democratic Party won a temporary victory of sorts in this week's primary election for the vacant seat in the 72nd Assembly District. Because none of the candidates in Tuesday's race got more than 50% of the vote, a runoff between a Democrat and a Republican must be held Sept. 12. Thus, the turbulent Assembly will not get a new member--expected by most observers to be a Republican--for nearly two months.

With Assembly floor sessions marked by mounting partisan fights, Republicans on Wednesday loudly cheered the swearing in of the 41st GOP member: Richard Ackerman of Fullerton. * The former Fullerton mayor took his seat on the ornate Assembly floor one day after easily winning a special election to fill the North County seat vacated by Ross Johnson, who earlier this year was elected to the state Senate.

If this is July, it must be time for yet another special election in Orange County. And like Measure R, which was soundly torpedoed by county voters last week, this election comes at a crucial political time, with implications that could reverberate throughout the state.

A Stanislaus County school board banned a celebrated but controversial piece of Chicano literature from its high school classrooms this week because trustees and the superintendent believe "Bless Me, Ultima" contains too much profanity. The Newman Crows Landing Board of Education voted 4 to 1 Monday night to strip the coming-of-age novel by Rudolfo Anaya from the sophomore required reading list at Orestimba High School.

The effort to stop San Francisco's same-sex marriages accelerated Thursday when an attorney opposed to the unions filed a petition with the state attorney general demanding that Mayor Gavin Newsom and county Clerk Nancy Alfaro be removed from office. The filing by Richard Ackerman also asked that Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer turn the matter over to the federal government and that Lockyer, too, be removed from office.
