Black-eyed peas, baked ham, grits, collard greens and ham hocks are some examples of New Year’s Day food traditions. What fare brings you luck, or at least memories, on New Year’s Day? The Rev. Stefanie Etzbach-Dale: Even on a budget, the winter holiday season tends to afford various opportunities to indulge in all sorts of rich and savory foods — conjuring up memories of holidays past and of people long gone, all the while inciting temporary amnesia regarding the salt, sugar and/or fat content of said foods and their well-documented negative affect upon one’s health.

This Monday, I was privileged to attend a candlelight vigil held in memory of Bobby Salcedo at his alma mater in El Monte. Bobby Salcedo was killed in Gomez Palacio, Mexico, the night before New Year’s Eve. Bobby was out with his family, doing what families do best around that time of year — celebrating, and having some good food. But then all of that changed when gunmen — supposedly tied to a drug cartel somewhere — entered the restaurant where he was eating, dragged him out, along with five other men, and took them away.

Hearts, flowers and symbols for hugs and kisses are turning up everywhere these days as St. Valentine’s Day is just a heartbeat away. I even scattered some bright shiny red hearts on a wreath that hangs by my front door. Not a huge contribution, but at least a nod toward this Cupid-driven celebration, embraced by merchandisers everywhere. As of this writing we have had bright, sunny days; however the weather people tell us that we should batten down the hatches because another spate of rain is on its way. I’m sure our up-slope neighbors are getting pretty tired of packing boxes in case they have to evacuate once again.

To many La Cañada Flintridge residents the last days leading up to the Pasadena Tournament of Roses extravaganza are among the most exciting of the year. This year's Tournament events are especially important to three young women who attend La Cañada schools, for they have been chosen to serve on the seven-member 2007 Royal Court ? one of them as Rose Queen. It's during the last week of December when all year-long planning and hard work on La Cañada's Rose Parade float comes to fruition and the time of the year when visual progress happens at a much more rapid pace.

[Updated at 1 p.m.: Three high school seniors from La Cañada Flintridge were named Monday to the 93rd Pasadena Tournament of Roses Royal Court, capping off a rigorous four-round interview process that attracted nearly 1,100 applicants. They were: Evanne Friedmann of La Cañada High School, Kathryn Thomson of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy and Jessica Montoya of Flintridge Preparatory School. “I feel so overwhelmed,” Kathryn, 17, said. “As you keep getting closer it becomes more real, and now to be standing here — it is unbelievable and I am just so grateful.

Brian Mellstrom and Joshua Spry will be closer to the Tournament of Roses Parade than anyone else on New Year's Day — without having to camp out the night before. Brian and Joshua, both La Cañada High School students, will be marching in the parade after being chosen for the Tournament of Roses Honor Band. The honor band includes Pasadena City College's band and a selected group of talented high-school musicians. "I was just amazed I was chosen and that I'd be able to perform in the Rose Parade," said Brian, 16, who is in the 11th grade.

When a pregnant Raquel Trujillo wrapped up her 12-hour shift at the Los Angeles Police Department on New Year's Eve, she had no idea New Year's Day would bring with it one very special delivery. That's because she and the baby's father, Jesus Aispuro, were planning on a Jan. 14 C-section in advance of the original Jan. 21 due date. But at about midnight on New Year's Day, the 42-year-old Trujillo awoke to a strange sensation. It was just a little startle, not like the water breaking that had announced the arrival of her first daughter, also named Raquel, two years earlier.
