Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- Mardi Gras will come early this year and far west of New Orleans. The tastes of Cajun food and sounds of Creole music will fill the Glendale Civic Auditorium during the "New Orleans Mardi Gras Festival" on Sunday. "It's going to be fun," said Rachelle Bolding, an event organizer. "It's going to be something different." The festival is the first in what may become a series of diversity programs put on by PRC Corporate Events Inc., a Glendale event planning company started in June by Bolding and two other partners.

It was Mardi Gras at Cabrini over the weekend. On Saturday, Cabrini Literary Guild members adorned the Oakmont Country Club with Mardi Gras paraphernalia from feathered eye masks and long beaded necklaces to Harlequin figures. A New Orleans-type jazz band kept the rhythm going. Even lunch fit the theme, beginning with a Creole salad with Cajun vinaigrette dressing. The entry was chicken New Orleans with dirty rice. Father Paul Hruby gave the blessing on the food. Once sated, Cabrini members and guests wandered among silent-auction items, spied opportunity prize baskets and bought raffle tickets for the chance to win $1,000.

As I type this, the clock is slowly ticking toward the first Tournament of Roses Parade of the new decade. Around this time, 100 years ago, the parade had no theme (and wouldn?t have one until 1918, with the theme of ?Patriotism?). The grand marshals of the 1910 parade were Dr. Francis F. Rowland and professor Charles F. Holder, both founders of the Tournament of Roses Parade. Rowland is the only person with the distinction of having been grand marshal seven times, according to the Tournament of Roses organization.

Gretchen Hoffman LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- When Nila and Roger Barkley kicked off the first Roger Barkley Charity Golf Tournament 16 years ago, a charity tournament was a novel idea. "When we first started this, we were the only ones doing it," Nila Barkley said. Charity golf tournaments no longer uncommon, but the Roger Barkley tournament has remained strong, drawing an average of 150 golfers, she said. The 16th annual tournament is Friday at Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena.

Maybe it is too soon to mention Mardi Gras. After all, it is the traditional over-the-top celebration in New Orleans right before Christians begin the holy Lenten season culminating with the Easter holiday. On a cold winter night with my Christmas shopping nowhere near complete and my holiday cookies burned to a crisp in an oven that heats up only one side, give me a tropical drink and a big, hot bowl of gumbo. Michael’s Bar and Grill in Burbank serves the best Louisiana-style Cajun cooking in Los Angeles.

I want to begin by offering my deepest sympathies to the family of my friend and colleague, Jim Delzell, for his untimely passing. I cannot add to the tribute offered by Grant Gordon in this newspaper except to say that this man will be missed by all of us who worked with him and a generation of kids who were coached by him. So many of my own students over the years told me how Mr. Delzell was like a second father who imparted a love of a...
