Travel-trailer magnate Johnnie R. Crean was a roughhewn candidate for Congress who was so unpalatable that after winning the Republican nomination in 1982, GOP activists successfully backed a write-in candidate. Today, Crean is under fire again, this time from parents and faculty revolting against his 10-year chairmanship of the Army and Navy Academy in Carlsbad, California's only private military boarding school.

It may be too soon and too hyperbolic to declare Carlsbad a new hotbed of contemporary classical music action. But as the sixth annual Carlsbad Music Festival unfolds this weekend featuring new music notables the Calder Quartet, the California E.A.R. Unit and guitarist-composer-conceptualist Fred Frith, clearly something is abuzz in the seaside town, at least for one weekend each year. Founded and nimbly run by young composer-violinist Matt McBane, the festival provides a fresh West Coast forum for new music, commissioned, performed and served up with seriousness as well as audience accessibility.

My husband loves golf. I love the pretty things that come with golf. The emerald green of a well-tended fairway, the shimmering turquoise bands around the necks of the mallards that waddle across the rough, the lavender blooms of the wildflowers nestled along the course's edge. I also love dinner at a fancy restaurant, a full-body massage and a good plate of eggs Benedict to start the day.

The West Coast Chabad Lubavitch organization had raised nearly $7.2 million in pledges by late Sunday night during its 27th annual "To Life Telethon," the organization said on its program. The event, telecast from Los Angeles and featuring an array of celebrities, raises funds for the Hasidic Jewish organization's 200 West Coast centers. They offer services such as drug and alcohol rehabilitation, crisis intervention, counseling, summer camps and programs for the elderly.

One of the more curious aspects of being a parent is that you become susceptible to a whole new range of advertising. Surely, if it were not for Nicholas, our 3-year-old, I would have remained unaware of Legoland, the theme park in Carlsbad, which opened in March. I certainly wouldn't have been guilt-ridden because my child was the only kid in preschool who hadn't made the pilgrimage to the first park in the United States created by Lego, the Danish toy manufacturer.

Political fallout from corruption scandals and the Iraq war cast a pall over a gathering of Republican governors in Carlsbad, Calif., on Thursday as GOP strategists and leaders acknowledged the party faced a tough climate for its 2006 campaigns. "You'd have to be really disconnected from reality to not see and admit that Republicans nationally have gone through a tough patch here the last six or eight months," Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty said. "We should just acknowledge that."

Construction workers Tuesday plugged a hole in a main sewer pipe that had leaked millions of gallons of wastewater into an ecological reserve. The 10-inch hole sent more than 5 million gallons of raw sewage into the Buena Vista Lagoon, a freshwater lake between Carlsbad and Oceanside that is home to many fish and bird species.

Powerboats and personal watercraft will be allowed to return to a Carlsbad lagoon now that authorities appear to have eradicated a fast-spreading algae that endangered aquatic life. The City Council voted 4 to 0 on Tuesday to end the three-year ban on motorized craft in the Snug Harbor area of Agua Hedionda Lagoon, which had been infested with Caulerpa taxifolia.

LUXURY hotels are supposed to be places where people like my great-aunts could have thrived. They were so pampered, according to family lore, that they would walk into doors if someone wasn't steps ahead holding the portal open. I would like to believe their world still exists, perhaps if only within the walls of elegant vacation spots such as La Costa Resort & Spa.
