The view from the observation tower at Chula Vista Nature Center takes in San Diego Bay, the Silver Strand, Coronado Island and downtown San Diego. Chula Vista, San Diego County's second-most populous city, gateway to Mexico, surprises with its sprawl.

Long View Drive in southern San Diego County is bad news for anyone sniffing around for signs that the housing market downturn is about over. The two-story stucco house at 1308 is an eyesore among the other well-tended homes in this Chula Vista neighborhood. It's vacant, and the small patch of lawn is overrun with weeds. The entryway is littered with junk mail and old fliers, and stuck to the door is the piece of paper that explains it all: Notice of Trustee Sale.

Dozens of startled residents in southern San Diego County called police to report a UFO, which turned out to be a blimp on its maiden advertising voyage. Brightly lit in the night sky to attract attention, the blimp did exactly that Friday night. Police in Chula Vista, National City and San Diego say they got a number of calls from residents worried about an invasion from outer space. "People think they are seeing UFOs and it's weird," a Chula Vista police dispatcher said.
