Friday Morning At Tamarack

Looks like no one is out at Tamarack this morning at 7:03 AM. Where did those waves go?


The Seawall: A Motorhomeless Heaven

Sometimes waking up to an ocean front view doesn’t mean spending $3.2 million on a house on Ocean Street. Not when there’s free parking on the Carlsbadistan seawall.

The Carlsbad Crew At ASR 09

by The Editors on February 20, 2009


A friend of ours snapped this photo at the Action Sports Retailer Show at the San Diego Convention Center last month. Apparently, these girls are all from Carlsbadistan and were at the show to load up on free stuff. Looks like they did a pretty good job.


Javina Magness Makes It Through

by The Editors on June 28, 2008


She was sippin’ water and suckin’ throat lozenges most of the set, but that didn’t keep blues diva Javina Magness and her band from rocking the crowd all the way to the outfield at Stagecoach Park last night, for concert two of Carlsbad’s TGIF Jazz in The Park 2008.

We didn’t catch the first bit of Magness’ show because, as usual when we venture that far into Carlsbad’s Eastern Front, we got lost. From the looks on the faces of the packed baseball field everyone was enjoying Javina’s efforts.

The new baseball diamond venue may lack a little of the flavor of the old location, but it sure makes it easy for all the picnickers. And that new jumbo-sized dance floor seemed to be extremely popular.

Ron Paul supporters Mellissa Ingram, Mike Ladda, and Eric Ingram.

Carlsbad Ron Paul meet-up members were out in force at the corner of Coast Highway and Carlsbad Village Drive today reminding people to Google Ron Paul. The fact that Ron Paul’s chances of winning anything are extremely slim did nothing to deter this group

“To me it doesn’t matter if we win or lose, this is the first time I’ve been able to get behind any politician so I wanted to do what I can,” said Elton Tidwell. “If the media is not going to get his name out there then this is the only thing we can do.”

According to Eric Ingram there will be a big Ron Paul rally at Balboa Park on February 2, 2008 and “Ron Paul just might be there,” he said.
