LOS ANGELES - Tara Conner's Kentucky cheering section has taken this town by storm.
Most of them are first-time visitors to the West Coast, and they've savored the delights, dipping their toes in the ocean and checking out the Santa Monica pier.
They've piled into black stretch limousines for tours of the stars' neighborhoods.
Some 30-plus relatives and friends have relocated to sunny California to check out the sights, but most importantly, to support the Russell Springs woman in her quest tonight to go from Miss USA to the big crown, Miss Universe.
Conner, 20, the former steakhouse waitress and community college student, will compete against women from 85 countries in the pageant, broadcast live on NBC at 9 p.m.
