Barron Matalon, 47, Hollywood hairdresser whose clients included Jane Fonda, Debra Winger, Madeleine Stowe and Rosemary Clooney. Matalon won national attention in 1986 when he created a chin-length modern shag cut for Fonda to model at the Academy Awards. He nicknamed the revisited style "the new 'Klute' " after one of the actress's films, and described it as an updated version of the 1960s layered look. He also gave the short cut to Fonda's daughter Vanessa Vadim.

She's directed four rock videos starring Boy George, with plans in the works to do more with the English singer.

In his native South Africa, science whiz Elon Musk struck his first business deal when he made $500 selling the code for a "Space Invaders"-style video game he invented. He was 12. It took only another decade or so for him to make some real money: By age 23 Musk had his first significant company in Web software maker Zip2. He banked $22 million when he sold it in 1999 to Compaq Computer. And last year, he pocketed about $150 million in EBay Inc.

It's always a pleasure to hear Kenny Barron in action. Arguably one of the most versatile and gifted pianists on the current jazz scene, he seems capable of producing quality results in every imaginable setting. In recent years, for example, he has turned up at various Southland venues heading a quintet featuring tenor saxophonist David Sanchez, in a stunning duet partnership with bassist Charlie Haden and in a renewal of his longtime involvement with the group Sphere.

There was a time when, to keep his ride, all a race driver needed to do was go fast, crash as little as possible and maybe have a few beers with the owner and the mechanic, often the same person. Today, racing is only a small portion of what high-level drivers need to do to keep their rides. Alex Barron, who drives a Chevrolet-powered Dallara for Eddie Cheever's Red Bull team in the Indy Racing League, is a case in point.
He may wonder what might have been if yellow flags had not come out at the end of the 86th Indianapolis 500, but Alex Barron is reasonably content with the reality of his fourth-place finish in "the greatest spectacle in racing." Since Barron was named co-rookie of the year with South African Tomas Scheckter, who led the most laps, things have become increasingly rosy for Barron. Or, perhaps, increasingly green. "We're [attracting] more sponsors for the [Blair Racing] team," Barron said.
