In the beginning, there is dirt. Tens of thousands of cubic yards of dirt. In Anaheim, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New Orleans and other cities with big-time stadiums, the dirt is hauled in and transformed into big-money pro racetracks. The dirt is moved around by heavy machinery that Rich Winkler rents town to town. So much rented machinery that Winkler was profiled in the in-house magazine of the maker of John Deere equipment as one of the best repeat customers. Does it get any better than that?

It is hardly the Louvre, but a group of Antelope Valley artists are setting up a temporary gallery in a vacant Lancaster appliance store with the hope that holiday sales will help them buy and restore a permanent home. The nonprofit Antelope Valley Allied Arts Assn. is negotiating with Lancaster officials to buy the historic Art Deco-style Cedar Avenue Complex, which last month was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

TAKE 500 truckloads of dirt. Add a few dozen snorting motorcycles, a bunch of 70-foot jumps, some booming pyrotechnics and 45,000 screaming fans, and you've got one of the fastest-growing motorsports in the country in all its deafening, live glory. Last weekend marked the beginning of the Amp'd Mobile AMA Supercross Series. It's known simply as Anaheim 1 to those in the know, but for those who aren't, it's sort of like the Fourth of July, the Grammys and the Super Bowl all rolled into one.
