'Twas the night before the last Wednesday of the year - pretty much Tuesday, bear with me. It was a night when families and friends gather 'round the fire, sharing food, drinks and desserts, welcoming in the new year with open arms, happy thoughts and warm wishes. They sing and dance. And they jump over the fire, which is believed to inhale away the yellow color of illness and sadness and replace it with the red color of flames, which symbolizes health and wellness in all aspects.

It took a stretch of 137 seconds at the end of the first half and the beginning of the second to eliminate much of the suspense over the outcome of the season-opening nonleague football game between visiting Corona del Mar High and Estancia Friday night. But by then, another uncertainty was all but gone for the Sea Kings, who earned a 26-6 victory before 900 spectators at Orange Coast College. Senior Matt Loyd, who did not touch the ball on offense last season, established himself as a productive tailback by rolling up 100 rushing yards on 16 carries by halftime.

Voters in the CIF Southern Section Division IX poll have rewarded CdM (2-2) for the aforementioned losing streak, elevating the Sea Kings a couple spots to No. 6 ranking. Coach Dick Freeman is another who thinks playing tougher foes has better prepared his team for Pacific Coast League play, which begins Friday night at 7 against Calvary Chapel and Newport Harbor High.

The word "spices" conjures up visions of exotic places and exquisite tastes that delight the senses. Prized long before recorded history, the earliest evidence of their existence dates back to 50,000 B.C. Originally, they were used for magic, medicine, religious rituals and as preservatives. The spice trade began in the Middle East more than 4,000 years ago with the importation of cinnamon and pepper from the Indian Subcontinent and other regions of Asia. By 2000 B.C., Arabs monopolized the spice trade, bringing their precious cargo back by arduous journeys in camel caravans.

To get the finish it wanted, the Edison High girls’ water polo team needed to focus more on the start. The Chargers had come out slow in Sunset League losses to Newport Harbor and Los Alamitos earlier this year. “It was not a physical thing,” Coach Diggy Riley said. “Mentally, we just didn’t come out and stay focused. We didn’t play very smart.” But over the weekend at the Irvine Southern California Championships, that was clearly not a problem.
