Janet Reno
former attorney general

Janet Reno heads to Hollywood

Associated Press

MIAMI - Janet Reno is headed to Hollywood.

The former attorney general is booked for NBC's "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno tomorrow, capping off fund-raisers in three California cities to build her campaign war chest for Florida governor.

Reno spokeswoman Nicole Harburger said the candidate was also to be the guest of pop star Elton John at his swank, post-Academy Awards party last night in Los Angeles.

Reno, a Democrat vying to defeat Gov. Jeb Bush, attended a fund-raiser in Sacramento yesterday and plans to attend an event in Los Angeles tomorrow.

She'll wrap up the trip with a Tuesday afternoon taping tomorrow of the "Tonight Show" where she will appear with actress Jodie Foster.

Arizona Daily Wildcat

Yuri's Night, a celebration of the 1961 historic space flight of Yuri Gagarin - the first human to travel in space - is coming to America April 12. The festivities take place in Los Angeles at the Santa Monica Museum of Flying.

Other Yuri's Night 2002 celebrations will take place around the world with 90 events in 40 countries, according to a press release. This year's celebration is set to surpass the success of Yuri's Night 2001 that included an estimated 10,000 worldwide participants.

The celebrations are connected via a global webcast and resemble a New Year's party in that the attendees have a toast at midnight. The toast, however, is not to a new year, but to Gagarin and a peaceful future in space, according to a press release.

Yuri's Night 2002 event proceeds benefit Cosmos Education and Permission to Dream; both organizations promote science education for youth. For more information on the Yuri's Night celebration go to
