It was the ultimate photo opportunity. For the first time in history, five U.S. presidents--several of whom had waged bitter campaigns against each other over the years--were gathered in one place. Warmed by a California sun and clearly aware they were basking in the light of history, they appeared jovial and fraternal, as political rhetoric melted into buttery praise for each other. Even the lone Democrat, Jimmy Carter--who had failed to join Presidents George Bush, Ronald Reagan and Gerald R.

With events running the gamut from impassioned public speakers to competing drag queens, the county's first Lesbian and Gay Pride Festival took place Sunday in Simi Valley as thousands showed up from across Southern California to celebrate with food, music, dancing and fun. "Everybody's a friend here," said Liz Herhold, who came from Los Angeles with her partner, Maggie Trie, and a group of friends. "I haven't seen anyone here who isn't smiling."

While former President Ronald Reagan welcomed a slew of celebrities to dedication ceremonies for his $57-million hilltop library Monday, bands of angry demonstrators stationed at the bottom of the hill protested the policies of current and former chief executives. Metal barricades and orange police sawhorses were set up along Madera Road leading to the library, keeping two groups totaling more than 500 demonstrators at least a mile from the library's entrance.

"We're all semi-relieved," said Dave Yasman, president of the Simi Valley Days organization. "We're pretty sure we're going to get the site. We have all the verbal agreements, but we're waiting for the ink on paper." Yasman's caution is understandable, given Simi Valley Days' tumultuous month. In early July, the festival, slated Sept.

The city will not issue a parade permit to the white supremacist group National Movement but will not stop its march Saturday in support of the Rodney G. King beating trial verdicts, officials said Tuesday. By issuing a permit, the city might be seen as supporting the views of the Mississippi-based group, Simi Valley officials said. According to the National Movement's permit application, the group promotes white supremacy, city officials said.

Simi Valley Mayor Greg Stratton on Thursday condemned plans announced in Los Angeles by the radical, right-wing Nationalist Movement group to hold a parade June 6 to celebrate the not guilty verdicts for Los Angeles police officers accused in the Rodney King beating. "Our city, and this entire area, are extremely dismayed that this group of people from outside our area have chosen Simi Valley as a site to demonstrate," Stratton said.

Five American presidents met on a wind-swept hilltop Monday to dedicate Ronald Reagan's presidential library and celebrate what many of his faithful sentimentally regarded as their leader's last hurrah. The ceremony, heavily laden with congratulations about the end of the Cold War, marked the first time five presidents had ever been together in one place.

The dedication ceremonies for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library next month present a logistics nightmare for the U.S. Secret Service in charge of security at the historic event. Not only do Secret Service agents have to protect President Bush, they will have to watch out for as many as four former Presidents and an array of foreign dignitaries.

The celebration was a mix of Hollywood and Washington, an event that offered a perfect melding of Ronald Reagan's twin careers as movie actor and President. Although five presidents dominated the stage Monday, many in the audience seemed more attracted to movie stars and television personalities. Arnold Schwarzenegger, adjusting his jacket over his muscular frame, was mobbed by autograph seekers and others angling for a snapshot of the box-office success.
