Each year we like to take a few moments on Thanksgiving to remember all the things we have to be thankful for. Thanks, Carlsbad for everything. We hope you have a wonderful day with your families and enjoy the blessings of living in the finest community in the world.

When Simone DeLira of EverBank was given the task of organizing the company’s grand opening in Carlsbad, priority one was making it be community oriented. One of the City’s oldest nonprofits, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad, was selected as the charity of choice. Each guest was asked to bring a toy or make a donation to the Club. Needless to say, it was a huge success!
“We have recently opened a new Home Loan Division here in Carlsbad,” stated EverBank Manager Grant Tisdel. “We are very excited to be a part of the community, and our Open House/Toy Drive was a way to give back in a meaningful way.” . . “Every member at our Village Clubhouse will be given a holiday gift, thanks to the generosity of EverBank as well as other local individuals and companies,” said Club CEO Brad Holland. “We are so grateful for the support Grant , Simone, and EverBank’s entire team has given our kids.”
Sounds like a great way to start. For the rest of the story, follow the jump. Continue reading ‘EverBank Supports Carlsbad Boys & Girls Clubs’
Tip Top Meats founder and Carlsbad legend “Big John” Haedrich (pictured right with his wife Diane) was recognized for his over two decades of services on the Tri-City Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees when he received the Legacy Award at the foundation’s Diamond Ball on November 2, 2013.
“Big John is one of our community’s larger than life personalities and a model citizen. His entrepreneurial successes and his tremendous generosity are a true inspiration to all who know him,” said Kevin Stotmeister, chair of the foundation’s Board of Trustees. “The Tri-City Hospital Foundation is delighted to honor him with the 2013 Legacy Award.” . . . Good health and athletics were essential to Big John’s own youth and development in post-war Eastern Germany. They gave him the confidence and discipline he needed to find success as he pursued his early career as a butcher and ultimately moved to California, started a business and achieved the American Dream.

With today’s resignation of Carlsbad City Manager John W. Coates, the city is again operating with an interim city manager (Carlsbad Fire Chief Kevin Crawford get to do it this time around) until the City Council can reportedly “develop a strategy for filling the position.”
“John was called to serve at a critical time of transition for our city organization,” said Mayor Matt Hall. “During the past 12 months, he has accomplished an ambitious agenda, leaving us well positioned to continue on our path of becoming a truly world class city.”
Coates was only officially in the position of City Manager for six months so it would seem that Council would still have a pretty good idea of what they’re looking for when it comes to a City Manager. Buy why rush things. Might as well put it off until February. For the official word from the City, follow the jump. Continue reading ‘Carlsbad Without City Manager Again’
For the record we’ll just say this: yes, it would be nice for Carlsbad to have a proper sign over Coast Highway like many of San Diego’s neighborhoods, but please, please, please don’t put a silly Wyland dolphin on it. You know what should be on the sign, right? The icon of Carlsbad. The Encina Power Station standing mighty and tall.

Tonight, (Monday, October 21, 2013) at 7 PM the New Village Arts Theatre in the Village of Carlsbad will be presenting a playing reading of Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles. The play was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and ran off Broadway in 2011 and 2012.
After suffering a major loss while he was on a cross-country bike trip, 21 year-old Leo seeks solace from his feisty 91 year-old grandmother Vera in her West Village apartment. Over the course of a single month, these unlikely roommates infuriate, bewilder, and ultimately reach each other. 4000 MILES looks at how two outsiders find their way in today’s world.
This just might be one of the best plays you’ll have read to you this year. Attendees are asked to make a $10 donation per ticket. The New Village Arts Theatre is located at 2787 State St, Carlsbad, CA 92008.
