The Daily Pilot asked elementary school students at Page Private School in Costa Mesa: Are you following what's going on with the presidential election? If so, what do you think? They're voting. They're counting how many votes the presidents have. They haven't decided yet because they didn't count all the votes. The person that I voted for, I heard he was in the lead: Bush. At the snack table, some of my friends said Gore was in the lead. But I'm not sure.

Bush tops Kerry in pumpkin contest A mock election turned scary for John Kerry supporters Sunday when George W. Bush came out on top of a Halloween-themed vote in Costa Mesa. The president garnered 249 votes to Kerry's 191 at the seventh annual Trick or Treat Festival at the Orange County Fairgrounds, event spokeswoman Jill Lloyd said. In another political twist at the Halloween event, pumpkin carver Mike Valladao fashioned a giant Jack-O-Lantern depicting the faces of this year's presidential candidates.

Alex Coolman They were one of the more popular items at the Orange County Fair: not corn dogs or ice cream cones, but small blue buttons available from the booth sponsored by the Republican Party of Orange County. "George W. Bush Para Presidente," the buttons read. "George W. Bush for President." "We were passing those [buttons] out like hot cakes," said Tom Fuentes, the county party chairman. "I would guess a good third of the visitors to our booth were Latinos and Latinas."

Alex Coolman As a tight presidential race grows tighter, the political landscape could be changing for one man who isn't in the race at all: Rep. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach), whose name has been mentioned as a possible Cabinet appointee for Texas Gov. George W. Bush, should he win the election. Cox snuck onto some pundits' short lists of possible running mates for Bush earlier this year. And though Dick Cheney got the nod instead of Cox, the Republican congressman is still prominent on the party's radar.

Alex Coolman News of George W. Bush's decision to tap Dick Cheney as his running mate drew praise Tuesday from Republicans, including Rep. Christopher Cox (R-Newport Beach), who had been considered a possible candidate for the spot. "It's a very exciting selection, not only because it brings vast international experience to the ticket, but also because Dick Cheney is a friend of Orange County," said Orange County Republican Party chairman Tom Fuentes.

If you're still undecided on voting today, let us remind you why you should. The future. First, there is the future leadership of the country at stake. The race for the presidency between George W. Bush and Al Gore is the closest one in recent memory. It appears it will go down to the wire and, for once, be decided here on the West Coast. Then there is the future of Congress. Will the House of Representatives and the Senate continue to be controlled by the GOP?

It's the last thing theater folks do when they lock up shop for the night. They roll out the "ghost light" to center stage. The practical explanation is rather dull and boring: It helps the first person in the next day to become oriented in an otherwise pitch-black room. Theater legend is much more fun: The light lets the ghosts know that the actors will return the next day to bring the magic to life again. The tricky thing with these ghost lights is that they cannot be purchased anywhere.

Irene Collins remembers the day she and her parents took her grandfather to a veterans hospital in Los Angeles for treatment. For some reason, she remembered, the staff wouldn’t admit this man, a veteran who had served in four branches of the military, and at 72 years old, tried to get in the fifth one, the U.S. Coast Guard. Word spread among family friends and co-workers about how Collins’ grandfather was rejected. Weeks later, Collins’ mother received a call from an apologetic governor.

It’s hard to believe that Oliver Stone could fashion a sympathetic look at the life of George W. Bush. But his intricate psychological portrait of our current president seems to do just that. The screenplay of “W.” skips back and forth in time, which helps to reveal the many factors that led to the formation of the mind set that drives our commander in chief. The basic facts of the story are familiar from several well-known insider accounts. Excerpts taken from actual speeches and news conferences present an accurate record of real comments made by Bush in response to questions raised by reporters and the public.

One of the best lessons to be learned from the drama at UC Irvine over the past few weeks is smart people can do dumb things. In case you were too busy following the progress of the Los Angeles Angels (a name I’ll never fully accept) or watching last week’s spectacular storm, here’s a summary. On Sept. 4, UCI Chancellor Michael Drake hired Erwin Chemerinsky to be the dean of the university’s new law school. A few days later, he rescinded his offer. A few days after that, he reinstated his offer, all the while proclaiming outside influences (i.e.

The biggest day in the history of UC Irvine athletics not only stretched the boundaries of reason, it also posed a substantial logistical challenge for those compelled to keep tabs. On June 18 in Washington, D.C., the men's volleyball team was recognized on the South Lawn of the White House for claiming the program's first NCAA championship six weeks prior. Just a few hours later in Omaha. Neb., the baseball team was on its way to winning the longest game in College World Series history, capturing the hearts of many fans in attendance at Rosenblatt Stadium, as well as those of a national television audience that took in the five-hour, 40 minute diamond drama.

It had been a long day of traveling when brothers Franz and Kurt Wisner found themselves where no vagabonds want to be: stuck in a customs office trying to negotiate their Saab over the Syrian border. They had spent a half an hour passing out $20 bills to make their way into the office of the head official, a stoic fellow who seemed irritated the pair had interrupted his viewing of the 2000 U.S. presidential debate between George W. Bush and Al Gore. Sensing an opportunity, Wisner slowly rose and grabbed a picture of himself posing with Bush, taken at a fundraiser during his former corporate days at the Irvine Co. The official, apparently a Bush fan at the time, was so impressed that he sent the men through, waiving the exorbitant fees required to take a car into the country.

JUNE CASAGRANDE America Online recently asked me to click a button to specify which candidate I thought would be a better president. (I couldn't find Pat Buchanan's name anywhere, so being the good Floridian I am, I boycotted the polling.) After the election, AOL asked me whether I thought George W. Bush was an effective leader. The first time I ever encountered this brand of cyber-interrogation was years ago, when the Los Angeles Times briefly had its own online service.

Paul Clinton Taking a break from a heated legislative session, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush swept into town Thursday to promote his brother for a second White House term to a GOP group gathered for a private fund-raiser at the Four Season Hotel. Bush took a break from his own political pressure cooker, which has pitted him against his own party in a battle to pass a medical malpractice bill. Even as Bush took a respite from Florida politics to speak briefly about his own state's improved economy, the younger brother of President Bush turned his primary focus to the 2004 campaign.
