In her darkest moments last year, after getting laid off from a job as human resources administrator for Endevco Corp. in July, Susie Lewis often walked up and down the Laguna beach, trying to fight despair. It wasn't easy. When she lost the job she had held for 4 1/2 years, Lewis also was on the verge of losing her 83-year-old mother in Denver to cancer. Lewis made five trips in her '89 Oldsmobile to Colorado to visit her mother last year.

You'd think Kingston Technology, the Fountain Valley-based maker of computer memory products, would have some pull when it comes to getting a choice Comdex location. After all, Kingston is 80% owned by Softbank, a giant Japanese company that owns Comdex. But there was Kingston last week, its booth butting right up against that of Viking Components, the Laguna Hills-based company that is one of Kingston's chief competitors.

As the Chicago Bulls pursue yet another NBA title, tickets for the team's home games are about as hard to find as hairs on Michael Jordan's head. But as a Laguna Hills company has shown, getting choice seats is easy when you know the magic words: corporate sponsor. Viking Components, a maker of computer memory products, joined the already crowded Chicago Bulls bandwagon earlier this month by signing a three-year corporate sponsorship with the basketball team.
