Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou greeted hundreds of flag-waving supporters in Los Angeles' Chinatown on Tuesday, an unusual public appearance on American soil that was a sign of the island's improving relationship with China. Ma was on his way home after visiting Sao Tome and Principe, Burkina Faso and Honduras -- three of Taiwan's remaining diplomatic allies.

Pasadena officials have rejected calls that the city condemn China's human rights record or take any other action regarding a controversial Rose Parade float celebrating the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Xiao Xuemei received a phone call at 2 a.m. Monday from a friend in her home city of Chengdu telling her that a massive earthquake had struck Sichuan province, killing thousands. Xiao, a waitress at a Sichuanese restaurant in Alhambra, panicked and immediately started calling family members there on their cellphones to make sure they were safe. "I couldn't get through," said Xiao, 50. "There was no connection." Luckily, Xiao received another call from Chengdu a few hours later.

Derek Ma was feeling pretty good after successfully co-hosting a banquet for China's National Day with more than 600 guests, a 10-course dinner, a parade of entertainers and more than $10,000 in prizes. Then he got a call from the top local representative of Taiwan, who put a damper on his mood. "He basically said, 'We are supposed to be old friends. Why did you guys do such a nice job helping the other side? It makes us look bad,'" said Ma, a restaurateur who used to be president of the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Assn.

John Chen, a onetime local government official in China who runs a furniture business in Ontario, led a candlelight vigil at an outdoor amphitheater in Monterey Park.

When the Tournament of Roses announced earlier this year that the Rose Parade would include a float celebrating the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, many hailed it as a historic moment for the 119-year-old parade and a sign of China's rise on the world stage. But with the parade less than three months away, the float has become an increasingly heated political issue in Pasadena and beyond.
