Talk about conflicting directives. Enlisted to update music from the smash Broadway play "Dreamgirls" for its big-screen adaptation, the hit-making producer duo the Underdogs faced a daunting task. The musical's songs, written in 1981 just after the zenith of the disco era, had to be overhauled to infiltrate the iPods of Generation Now, without alienating "Dreamgirls' " old-school fans. That meant maintaining the integrity of the musical's period-specific sound -- with a twist.

Pasadena High School hurdler Damon Thomas still has bitter memories about not qualifying for the state prep track and field finals last year. Thomas, then a junior, was one of the favorites in the 110-meter high hurdles at the Southern California qualifying meet, only to get bumped twice by George Porter of Cabrillo early in the race and finish dead last. "What happened is George Porter elbowed me twice in the second and third hurdles and I just couldn't come back," Thomas recalled.
