Tairree Lynne West had always been one to help others. When her best friend died several years ago, she adopted the woman's daughter. When a troubled high school friend needed a place to stay, she offered her apartment. Generosity may have been her tragic flaw. Police suspect that those who stabbed and strangled West in her El Segundo apartment last week included Erica Olson, 20, a homeless friend to whom West had given a house key.

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.

Rex "Chris" Kenyon's passion for helicopters began in high school and never let up until his death last month in Iraq at age 34. As a 15-year-old at El Segundo High School, he was entranced by the elite fighter pilots in the movie "Top Gun." For his 17th birthday, he asked for a helicopter lesson. At 18, he was lured from his engineering studies at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo by Army recruiters who offered him a chance to fly helicopters as a full-time soldier.

Whenever the No. 1 pass rusher in Southern California, Lawrence Jackson of Inglewood High, goes against the No. 1 passer, Matt Engle of El Segundo, it's almost like watching a Tom and Jerry cartoon. "I'm going to get you," Jackson says. "You can't catch me," Engle says. For two seasons, Engle has been one of the few quarterbacks to avoid becoming a Jackson sack victim. "I'm going to get you," Jackson says. "No you're not," Engle says.
