    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...
  • Carlsbad Unified School District to allow immigration meeting

    08/11/2005 1:22:24 PM PDT · by BoneHead · 27 replies · 618+ views
    With a lawsuit hanging over the school district's head, Carlsbad Unified School District Superintendent John Roach announced late Tuesday that he was backing down from his cancellation of a town-hall meeting on illegal immigration. 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...

    CARLSBAD – A town hall discussion on illegal immigration scheduled for next week will not be held on the campus of Carlsbad High School as planned. School officials said the event posed a potential risk of damage to the facility and could jeopardize members of the audience. Organizers said the event will take place next week at an unspecified venue. "We're in a holding pattern," said Wade Teasdale, an aide to Republican state Sen. Bill Morrow. "We're looking for another location right now." Morrow is sponsoring the town forum called "The Illegal Immigration Crisis: A Frank Discussion." It is to...

    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...
