"We had three newspapers and we passed them around so that everyone could read them," said North forward Dennis Burbank of Valencia. "We were still talking about those stories in the locker room before we took the court." Ah, the power of the press.

When school recessed for the summer, all Katella High School basketball player Richard Lucas had going for him were brains and talent. Now he can add money and fame. Now he can't even order a hamburger without an employee at the counter exclaiming, "Hey! Weren't you on 'Wheel of Fortune?' " Pat Sajak, host of the television game show, even suggested it be renamed "The Richard Lucas Show" in honor of the 6-foot 6-inch junior who won $18,676 worth of prizes during the first week of July.

When Ross Klein arrived at Hilton Worldwide's Beverly Hills headquarters to create a new luxury chain, he was the "it" guy in the hottest segment of the lodging business. A former retail marketing whiz, Klein had trained his fashion sense on the buttoned-down hotel industry, helping turn the W chain into a hip money-maker for its parent, Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc. Hilton lacked a product to compete. So it lured Klein away from Starwood in 2008 by offering him a chance to build a brand from scratch.
