Keith Erickson wasn't a born sidekick. He was a multisport star at El Segundo High School. He was a basketball star at UCLA who helped John Wooden win his first two NCAA titles. He kept his volleyball skills polished well enough to make the 1964 Olympic team. He played for the Lakers' championship team of 1971-72 that won 33 straight games and he had a 12-year pro basketball career. Wooden has called him the best athlete he ever coached.

One of the new "90210" characters threw a big party at Boulevard3 last week, and though we can't divulge whom, we can say that it was as decadent an affair as you might expect from the new residents of the posh ZIP Code. The popular Hollywood club is just one of many Los Angeles locations executive producers intend to showcase on the CW spinoff series. "We're using iconic places, and hopefully we'll also be showing the cool places," executive producer Gabe Sachs said.
A large and diverse group of candidates will greet El Segundo voters when they go to the polls Nov. 7 to fill four school board seats. Eleven hopefuls are seeking a seat on the five-member board, which sets policy for the 1,950-student district. Of the candidates, only two, Timothy Chang and Ruth Parks, currently serve on the board. Incumbents David Jones and Janice Cruikshank did not seek reelection.

The most archetypal American small town in Los Angeles County may be El Segundo, with its neighborly mid-century vibe. Visitors arriving on Main Street pass stately brick-and-stone El Segundo High School, a popular filming location, before encountering a large wooden directory erected by the Kiwanis Club that lists the city's 11 churches. Around the corner at Wendy's Place Cafe, there are framed jigsaw puzzles of Saturday Evening Post covers drawn by Norman Rockwell hanging on the paneled wall above the milkshake machine.

George Brett made the Hall of Fame last week. Not the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., but the El Segundo High School Hall of Fame, a continent away. Though he didn't join any baseball immortals in returning to his alma mater, Brett joined some select company as one of the most distinguished of the 8,000 graduates from the school since its first graduating class in 1929.
