    Thieves plunder crashed SUV of tires, wheels and battery - while its dying driver lay trapped underneath A man who was crushed to death by his SUV after a fatal accident suffered the final indignity of being robbed as he lay trapped under the vehicle. Police in New Mexico say 26-year-old Steven Roy Reese of Carlsbad was killed either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning when he apparently lost control of his 1996 Ford Explorer on a little-used dirt road. However, when they got to the vehicle they discovered that somebody had stolen wheels, tires and the battery from the wrecked...

    SANTA FE -- State Rep. Cathrynn Brown, reversing herself based on her constituents' wishes, said Wednesday she will introduce a bill requiring identification to vote. Brown, R-Carlsbad, had said only two weeks ago that she would not offer a voter ID bill this session because it had no chance to pass. "I changed my mind after hearing from my constituents," she said in an interview. "The prevailing view is that election integrity is too important not to do anything."

    CARLSBAD — The Carlsbad City Council voted unanimously yesterday to cover the municipal golf course's $1.6 million deficit for 2009, saying it was too early to change the financial strategy for the year-old course. Expenses for the course, The Crossings at Carlsbad, are expected to be $8 million versus $6.4 million in revenues. The budget anticipates a drop in course play revenue to $3.2 million from $3.4 million because of the declining economy. The city's finance director, Lisa Irvine, said that the course's $2.5 million in food and beverage revenues for 2009 will be higher than the $2.3 million earned...

    Property rights at issue CARLSBAD – A property-rights group has sued the city, claiming it requires property owners to give up their right to vote on forming an assessment district in return for obtaining a permit to improve their property and waive development fees. However, the city attorney said the lawsuit misses the point that development is a privilege and that the city has a right to place conditions on it. The lawsuit, filed Monday in San Diego federal court by the Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of Craig and Robin Griswold, focuses on a city ordinance that requires owners...

    A jump into a swimming pool in 2003 changed Travis Robinson's life forever. Somewhere between a belly flop and a tuck, Robinson, then 17, hit the pool in such a way that he injured his spinal cord. He now is paralyzed from the neck down. But in January, he hopes another moment will change his life: surgery. Robinson will fly to Portugal to get a breakthrough surgery at the Hospital Egas Moniz. In the procedure, the scar tissue that surrounds his spinal cord will be removed. Doctors will take tissue that contains stem cells from his sinuses and implant it...

The ceremony was complete with special guest speakers, plus the Army and Navy Academy's color guard and band ---- including a bugler who played taps.

    DEL MAR – Former state Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian announced his formal entry yesterday into the race to replace Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham in the 50th Congressional District. Kaloogian, a 45-year-old San Marcos attorney, said his leadership skills will stand out from the crowded field of Republicans expected to vie for the open seat in the heavily Republican district. "Everyone in the race will be against illegal immigration; everyone will talk about excess spending," Kaloogian said. "The key is who is going to get something done about it. Do you want someone who is get-along go-along, or someone who will get...

    Almost any discussion of immigration elicits deeply felt emotions. Still, most Americans seem to feel that immigrants will continue to play an important role in our country’s growth and that America should continue to be a beacon to the disadvantaged and oppressed peoples of the world seeking a better life. That there are many more of these than the United States can possibly accommodate does not seem to deter most Americans in favoring a liberal immigration policy. Ours certainly fits that description. For one thing, young, working immigrants replenish our aging workforce and provide additional payroll taxes to help keep...

    http://www.americanpatrol.com/ Republican state Sen. Bill Morrow of Oceanside said he organized the forum to discuss how defense of the nation begins at the border, and that he timed it for yesterday based entirely on Tancredo's busy schedule. Morrow said he has talked to Tancredo for months, even before embattled Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, R-Rancho Santa Fe, announced he will not seek re-election in the 50th District. Morrow said yesterday he will run for Cunningham's seat next year. "I know what the solution is," Morrow said. "We are not controlling our borders and it's a sea coming through. We are capable...

    CARLSBAD ---- Thursday night's town-hall meeting on illegal immigration at Carlsbad High School was a decidedly lopsided affair. Those who showed up after about 4 p.m. for the 7 p.m. meeting didn't get one of the coveted tickets to attend the forum, titled "The Illegal Immigration Crisis." One anti-illegal immigration advocate inside the school's 400-seat capacity Community Cultural Arts Center said he believed the reason that so few immigration-rights advocates made it inside was because radio talk-show host Roger Hedgecock, who emceed the meeting, gave his listeners a heads-up on his Wednesday radio show. "Roger told his listeners that we...

    So the Minutemen are crazy vigilantes and their supporters are racist thugs, right? Well you could have fooled me. I attended the immigration town hall forum in Carlsbad tonight, back on popular demand after city officials tried to shut it down. The move backfired; publicity from the attempted censorship bringing folks down from LA after they heard of it on KFI. I got there an hour early but the forum's four hundred seats were already filled. But I, along with several other members of the North Coast Republican Club, stuck around outside as the supporters of secure borders began a...

The decision ---- "effective immediately," Roach said ---- came on the eve of a court hearing on the matter. Citing concerns about possible acts of violence by protesters, Roach last week canceled a permit that the school district had issued in early July to state Sen. Bill Morrow, R-Oceanside, to hold the forum, titled "The Illegal Immigration Crisis." The forum is scheduled for Thursday. But Roach...

    NORTH COUNTY ---- An attorney for state Sen. Bill Morrow filed a lawsuit Monday asking a Superior Court judge to force the Carlsbad Unified School District to rescind its superintendent's cancelation of a town-hall meeting on immigration, the attorney said. Attorney Peter Lepiscopo, who represents Morrow, said he expects a judge to decide within a day or two whether the meeting, originally scheduled for Thursday, can be held at the Carlsbad Community Cultural Arts Center on the Carlsbad High School campus. Morrow described the lawsuit as a "last resort" and an effort to protect free speech.

    So a local pol wants to have a town hall forum on a pressing matter of interest. That should be a simple affair, right? Not if the issue is illegal immigration. State Senator Bill Morrow wanted to have a forum on the subject in the Carlsbad, Ca Cultural Arts Center. He invited Jim Gilchrist, Minuteman Founder and Congressman Tom Tancredo. The approvals were granted and invitations sent. Until John Roach, Superintendent of the Carlsbad Unified School District, got cold feet. It seems at other Gilchrist events, the supporters of illegal immigrants have gotten violent. So the natural bureaucratic response is...

    Ghost Pool, Lechaguilla Cave, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, New Mexico Source: Lechaguilla Photo Map Natural Resources: Lechuguilla Cave Lechuguilla Cave was known until 1986 as a small, fairly insignificant historic site in the park's backcountry. Small amounts of bat guano were mined from the entrance passages for a year under a mining claim filed in 1914. The historic cave contained a 90-foot entrance pit which led to 400 feet of dry dead-end passages. The cave was visited infrequently after mining activities ceased. However, in the 1950s cavers heard wind roaring up from the rubble-choked floor of the cave. Although there...
