A number of top building industry executives have been playing musical chairs, the result of a recession that has damaged some companies, brought new investors with new ideas into others and put bankers in charge of more than a few. Gordon Tippell, chairman of British-owned Taylor Woodrow Group's home-building companies in California and Nevada, is the latest to move, handing over his day-to-day management roles in Newport Beach-based Taylor Woodrow California Ltd. and Taylor Woodrow Nevada Ltd.

Intern with a blue dress, blue dress, blue dress. . . . The person of the year on radio was someone whose voice we didn't even really get to hear until last month.
