It so happened that two kids, a girl and a boy, grew up across the street from each other in a small, Orange County beach city. They both grew to love volleyball, as kids in beach towns have been known to do, and went on to star in the sport at the local high school. They shared strikingly similar styles on the court, with all-around abilities to dig, pass, set and hit, and they went about it with all the intensity of someone waiting in a bank to make a deposit.

United Airlines has called back 600 flight attendants who took voluntary layoffs, and company executives said they would invite 851 more to return to work by late fall. The first group is scheduled to return to work by Aug. 9, with the rest to be recalled by the end of November. More flight attendants are needed partly because more passengers are flying on United planes, United spokesman Jeff Green said. Last week, the UAL Corp. unit said its planes were on average 88.1% full in June.

One by one the college volleyball coaches came to Corona del Mar High School in 1988 to scout the Sea Kings, and they usually left raving about a junior named Danielle Everett, who never even played. "It's amazing," Corona del Mar Coach Charlie Brande said. "She's the only player I've known who had college recruiters asking about her after just watching her in warm-ups. They would call a few days later and say, 'Who was that No. 4? She was awesome.'
