Why is October, with a Latin base of "octo" or eight, the tenth month of the year? Thousands of years ago, the Romans fashioned a calendar, naming only the first ten months. They started the year in March and ended in December. Under this system, October was the eighth month. Some historians believe that the final two months of the year were left unnamed, reflecting a slow period in the agricultural cycle. Around 700 B.C., Numa, the second king of Rome, re-designed the calendar.

During the 2001 anthrax attacks, thousands of Americans who were possibly exposed to the deadly bacteria were given a powerful antibiotic, Cipro. The drug, developed by Bayer HealthCare, was literally a lifesaver during the crisis — especially for vulnerable postal workers and Capitol Hill staffers. Many who weren't even at risk also obtained prescriptions simply for piece of mind. In New York City, for instance, demand became so great that many pharmacies could fill only 10-day orders of the drug.

Christmas day has come and gone. What a busy and fun time I had this year in making sure that the Santa gifts from me were wrapped and ready for my five grandchildren - Aidan, Lucan, Morgan, Catherine and Ryan. This year I had some special shopping time in New York City. I arrived in the Big Apple, along with my daughter Heather, in a flurry of snow and bone-chilling cold. By the time we flew back home the city was setting heat records - it was 70 degrees and humid when our plane took off. I love being in New York for the Christmas season because it is the most dressed-up town I have ever visited during the holidays.

December is traditionally a time of shopping, socializing and reflection, when many La Cañadans gather together to put up the decorations, bake lasagna for the float builders, and plan for various cliffs, fiscal and otherwise. In the spirit of winter celebrations, the following is the Around Town annual top 10 list of Southern California's greatest people, things and places, in and around the 91011. But first, a disclaimer. In years past, Peggy Stevens, the owner of the Apple Cart gift store, has supported our family's various cancer research fundraisers, including the search for a protein biomarker for liver cancer by La Cañadan Michael Harrington, M.D., which was published in a peer-reviewed journal, and the current research by Faye Eggerding, M.D., Ph.D., into non-coding RNA markers for a variety of cancers.

On Valentine’s Day night, JPL employees forfeited any plans for romance in order to taste the fruits of a single celestial encounter. At a little before 9 p.m. Monday, NASA’s Stardust-NExT shuttle came within 125 miles of Tempel 1, a comet scientists have been tracking for years. The meeting, cheekily billed by NASA as “A Date with a Comet,” was more than five years, and hundreds of research hours, in the making. This “date” brings with it a scientific first — until now, no comet has ever been visited more than once.
