Anthony J. "Tony" Hope, the former head of the National Indian Gaming Commission and a son of comedian Bob Hope, has died. He was 63. Hope, who made an unsuccessful run for a California congressional seat in 1986, died Monday at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C., after a brief illness, according to a press release from Bob Hope Enterprises. Hope's death came less than a year after his father died of pneumonia at the age of 100 at his Toluca Lake home.

Tony Stewart is known for sometimes starting sluggishly when the NASCAR season opens and then picking up steam as the weather gets warmer. This year is no exception — at least as far as his slow start is concerned. Stewart is 24th in the title standings as the three-time Sprint Cup Series champion arrives for the race Sunday at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. But Stewart is the defending winner of the Auto Club 400; last year he did get off to a good early start. And another strong showing on the two-mile Fontana oval could help the veteran driver get back into championship contention.

Congressional candidate Tony Hope, who has been criticized for his poor voting record, turned the tables Tuesday on Simi Valley Mayor Elton Gallegly, his primary opponent and chief critic, by revealing that the mayor has not always been a registered Republican. In 1974, during the Watergate Era, Gallegly canceled his Republican affiliation and became an unaffiliated voter, according to an affidavit that Hope obtained from the Ventura County registrar of voters.

The son of comedian Bob Hope, whose residency was challenged during his quest for a Republican nomination to Congress, put his Northridge home up for sale three days after losing the primary election.

The three-bedroom house Hope bought March 14 for $225,500 was listed June 6 for $259,950, the Daily News said today.

Tony Hope, who ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 1986 and is entertainer Bob Hope's son, has gained a nomination to the state Republican Central Committee--possibly with an eye toward a future congressional bid. But while the action signals Hope's return to the California political scene, it does not necessarily reflect a return to California. He apparently resides in Washington.

Shortly before his death, Bob Hope was asked by his wife, Dolores, where he wanted to be buried. The master of the one-liner said, "Surprise me." The enduring comedian, who died July 27 of complications from pneumonia at the age of 100, could have been laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, along with Hollywood luminaries Clark Gable, James Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Nat King Cole, Jean Harlow and Walt Disney.

The war of words being waged between the two leading Republican candidates in the 21st Congressional District race escalated this week when each of the two leading candidates began airing radio ads derogatory to the other. With the June 3 primary less than three weeks away, Tony Hope, an attorney and son of entertainer Bob Hope, and Simi Valley Mayor Elton Gallegly chose in their radio spots to attack the other's most vulnerable attributes.

Three Republicans--Simi Valley Mayor Elton Gallegly, Tony Hope, a lawyer and son of comedian Bob Hope, and stock brokerage executive Tom La Porte--are competing in the June 3 primary race in the 21st Congressional District. The district extends from eastern Ventura County through parts of the western San Fernando Valley to the Sunland-Tujunga area. It also dips into the Pacific Ocean to include Santa Catalina.

Although Elton Gallegly's stunning victory over congressional opponent Tony Hope caught everyone by surprise, political experts and the Simi Valley mayor's own strategists Wednesday contended that there are logical explanations for the runaway. Gallegly benefited, they suggested, from a low voter turnout.

There is an island called Manhattan on the eastern coast of America where the ancient art of the theater is practiced as if it is still a thing of widespread cultural relevance. Sunday night at Radio City Music Hall, where the Rockettes live, the men and women of Broadway got together to celebrate this island within the island: It was the 58th annual Tony Awards, and CBS was there with its TV cameras to bring it to you.

As hundreds of friends of the late Bob Hope -- including generals, comics and a former president -- gathered Wednesday to pay tribute to the entertainer, actor Mickey Rooney seemed to capture what many were thinking. How, Rooney was asked, will Hope be remembered? "As the best," he answered. Rooney was among the hundreds of friends who filed into North Hollywood's stately St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church for a memorial Mass for Hope, who died July 27 at the age of 100.

Tony Azevedo returned to the Long Beach Wilson water polo team in October after playing for the U.S. national team through the summer and early fall.

Azevedo, a 6-foot-1, 193-pound senior who turns 18 Nov. 21, is regarded as the best U.S.

In the public invitation for his inaugural wine-tasting dinner Oct. 27, restaurateur Tony Fiumerodo promises the moon. Specifically a full, romantic one. In reality, of course, Fiumerodo has no control over things celestial, but the promise seems more than a possibility, given that Fiumerodo is owner of Bella Luna (Italian for beautiful moon). Fiumerodo opened the Newbury Park lunch-and-dinner establishment over the summer.

"But I told him with a name like Radovich, we'd draw them in," the spokesman shouted above the noise of TV cameramen setting up their equipment.

Driving across the broad, paved, brightly lit avenues of Beverly Hills is disconcerting for a man used to the rugged, dusty terrain of northeastern Tanzania. But Tony Fitzjohn, an Englishman by birth, an African at heart, has ventured to the urban jungle for a purpose: to save the African black rhinoceros from extinction. As director of the Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania, Fitzjohn's endeavor is a dangerous and expensive one.

Tony Blake wants to blow a lot of smoke these days. In fact, the grandson of a Cuban tobacco farmer can think of nothing better than blowing it in the faces of those who support smoking restrictions--those he believes have forced his comrades and him into hazy back rooms to enjoy their habit furtively. Instead, he's lighting up and seeking revenge by forming Ventura's first cigar club.
