If you ask Solar Decathlon director Richard King why the average person might want to swing by the U.S. Department of Energy's biennial competition when it opens in 12 days, he answers with a question of his own: "Where else can you see 20 houses so inspiring, side by side?" Indeed, on Sept. 23, 20 teams consisting of students from 30 schools as diverse as Stanford, El Paso Community College and the Vienna University of Technology begin assembling the most unusual housing tract to hit Orange County.

'Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World' Richard King Considered a special-achievement award (like visual effects), this category has only three nominees. Although it's often thought to go simply to the loudest, most sound-filled pictures, such as previous winners "Pearl Harbor" or "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers," this year's nominees are perhaps remarkable for their relative restraint.

The Kings tried to wow premier free-agent forward Brad Richards on Friday with a pitch that included videotaped appeals from Wayne Gretzky and Kobe Bryant and a front-loaded offer worth nearly $60 million over nine years, but Richards decided to sleep on his decision and announce his choice Saturday. Richards told Canada's Sportsnet late Friday that he had narrowed the field to four teams, believed to be the Kings, New York Rangers, Calgary Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs. The Rangers can offer money and familiarity: their coach, John Tortorella, guided Richards to the Stanley Cup when both were with Tampa Bay in 2004 and they have a good relationship.

A Beverly Hills detective was involved in a sexual relationship with the girlfriend of a drug dealer when he had the dealer arrested in 1990, according to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court. The girlfriend, Lynne D'Andrea, made the assertion in a sworn affidavit introduced as part of an effort to overturn the conviction of Michael D. Christakis, serving a 24-year sentence for conspiring to sell large amounts of cocaine.

Orange County will soon join Dallas in the limelight of a television series. The success of the new series, however, will not be measured in Nielsen ratings but in the yen it can attract; the show is targeted for Japanese businessmen. The three-hour, three-part series portraying Orange County's business and investment potential is scheduled to air early this summer in Los Angeles on Channel 18's Japan News Magazine and later on two major networks in Japan.

Dynamic Duo, the unlikely collaboration of promoters Don King and Butch Lewis, is dissolving in a pool of litigation. Lewis is suing his partner for an unpartner-like $30 million. But who thought it would end otherwise? At that, who thought it would last this long? The two were odd bedfellows from the get-go. Lewis was only in the heavyweight unification series because he controls Michael Spinks, the International Boxing Federation champion.

A few teams will throw millions of dollars at prized free agent Brad Richards when the NHL's free agency period begins Friday at 9 a.m., but the Kings said they plan to focus on "mid-range" wingers and the Ducks intend to look for third- and fourth-line help. Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi is well-positioned to delve into the free-agent market because he has more than $16 million in salary-cap space next season, though a large chunk of that will go toward re-signing restricted free-agent defenseman Drew Doughty.

A 36-year-old former member of a motorcycle gang testified Wednesday that he was so frightened after watching Thomas F. Maniscalco and a small band of killers leave three people dead in a Westminster home in 1980 that he hid for a year for fear he would be next. Robert Robbins, a bearded former member of The Family motorcycle gang in Michigan, was the leadoff witness at Maniscalco's murder trial in the Memorial Day triple slaying.
