Carlsbad is a coastal city in the North County region of San Diego.

The single-runway Palomar Airport opened in 1959 after County of San Diego officials decided to replace the Del Mar Airport. The airport was annexed to the City of Carlsbad in 1978 and renamed McClellan-Palomar Airport in 1982 after a local civic leader, Gerald McClellan.

The first modern skateboard park, Carlsbad Skatepark, was built in March 1976. It was located on the grounds of Carlsbad Raceway and was designed and built by inventors Jack Graham and John O’Malley. The skatepark was closed in 1979, leaving Del Mar Skate Ranch, approximately 20 minutes away, as the nearest skatepark for residents such as Tony Hawk. The site of the original Carlsbad Skatepark and Carlsbad Raceway was demolished in 2005 and is now an industrial park. However, two skateparks have since been developed.

In March 1999, Legoland California was opened. It was the first Legoland theme park outside of Europe and is currently operated by Merlin Entertainments. Merlin Entertainments owns 70 percent of the shares, and the remaining 30 percent is owned by the LEGO group and Kirkbi A/S.

The northwest quadrant of Carlsbad (ZIP code 92008) includes the downtown “Village”, “The Barrio”, and “Olde Carlsbad.” It was the first part of Carlsbad to be settled. Homes range from 1950s cottages and bungalows, 1960s ranch style houses, to elegant mansions on hills overlooking the ocean. It is also home to Hosp Grove Park, a grove of eucalyptus trees relatively untouched by development and now designated by the city for recreational use, in addition to the Buena Vista and Agua Hedionda Lagoons. It is located west of  El Camino Real and north of Palomar Airport Road.

This quadrant (ZIP code 92010) is located east of El Camino Real and north of Palomar Airport Road and consists mostly of single-family homes, with larger lots found in the older area known as Chestnut Hills and the newer developments around Calavera Hills.

The Northeast quadrant also contains the Lake Calavera Nature Preserve, a 110-acre space containing a 513-foot extinct volcano known as Mount Calavera. The preserve — notable for its small lake, wide dam, and mountain — was officially set aside in the 1990s as the surrounding land was being developed. The preserve is bordered on three sides by suburban single-family homes, and on one side by small farms and rural compounds. In 2012, Sage Creek High School was developed in the southwest corner of the preserve amid some controversy. Nature experts challenged the decision to construct the school on the preserve, but Carlsbad High School was reaching its capacity and there were few undeveloped areas that had sufficient space for an additional high school. Despite missing one of its original corners, the preserve still offers miles of hiking trails with ocean views.

 

Every home — big, small, apartment or vacation
home — gets dirty. And while there’s not just one way to clean your living
space, there is a smarter way to get the job done. Take this guided tour of
your home — from the kitchen and bathroom to the bedroom and living areas — to
learn the basic rules of cleaning as well as some tips and short cuts that will
help you clean thoroughly and efficiently, starting now.
 

How to remove soap scum: Water spots and soap scum that build up
on glass shower doors can drive you crazy, but try this strange tip: Wet a
dryer sheet and scrub the glass in a circular motion. A milky white film will
form, which can be wiped away using water and a squeegee, paper towels or a
microfiber cloth. The dryer sheet doesn’t need to be new; you can press a dryer
sheet that’s been used for laundry into double duty for this task.

Hair is a particular
issue in bathrooms. In general, hair pickup should be a dry proposition. Start
by vacuuming, sweeping or dry mopping; if you introduce, say, a wet mop to a
hairy floor, you’ll end up with wet strands stuck to the floor. In the sink and
around the toilet bowl, use paper towels or rags to pick up hairs before you
introduce liquid cleansers.

How to keep bathroom floors
clean
: Store a small handheld vacuum in the bathroom to
make staying on top of loose hairs a cinch.

 

A
feather duster may seem like a relic of the past, but in a bedroom — where we
often use dresser tops and bedside tables to store books, eyeglasses, remote
controls, etc. — that duster will make quick work of eliminating dust from
knickknack-laden surfaces. The nature of gravity being what it is, dust first,
vacuum second.

How to Clean a Burned Pot: To
clean a badly scorched pot without scrubbing, cover the burned area with a
liberal amount of baking soda and pour in enough boiling water to fill the pot
a third to halfway up. When the water is cool enough to touch, head in with
your sponge and use the baking soda solution to scrub away the scorch. Dump the
solution and wash the pot with hot, soapy water.

The Dishwasher Debate: While
there isn’t an absolutely correct way to load a dishwasher (and what would
couples bicker over if such a directive were carved in stone?), there is one
universal rule: It is much easier to load from back to front.

The sink, especially
the faucet, can be wiped free of bacteria and food particles with an
all-purpose cleaner. And we all should probably clean the faucet more often,
considering it’s something we touch with raw-chicken-covered hands.

Sponges should be cleaned frequently, too, either by running them
through the dishwasher or microwave. If you use a microwave, first make sure
the sponge does not contain any metal, then get the sponge very wet and nuke it
for two minutes; be careful when you remove it, as it will be quite hot.

Has your sponge holder developed
mold or bacterial buildup? Use a toothbrush dipped in bleach or white vinegar —
but never both, as the combination creates a dangerous chemical reaction — to
scrub away mold. Follow by washing the sponge caddy with hot, soapy water or
run it through the dishwasher.

Keep Surfaces Clean

 

Wipe
your counter and stovetops with an all-purpose cleaner after use. Stovetops in
particular benefit from this type of regular, quick cleaning, as splatters,
drips and grease become baked on when left too long.

How
to clean a stovetop
: Something tough will be required to scour away baked-on
splatters and greasy film. A Dobie Pad, which is a nonscratch scrubbing sponge,
combined with a gentle powder cleanser will make short work of stubborn messes.
When cleaning stainless steel, scrub with the grain, rather than in a circular
motion, to avoid scratching, and use a gentle touch, allowing the product,
rather than force, to do the bulk of the cleaning work.

How to clean small appliances: The
exterior of small appliances like toasters, coffeemakers and blenders that sit
out on countertops should be wiped frequently using all-purpose cleaners to
prevent the buildup of splatters and greasy film from cooking. For deeper
cleaning, take off all removable parts and wash it by hand or in the
dishwasher. Give the exterior a once-over with all-purpose cleaner using tools
like cotton swabs or an old toothbrush to get into tight corners and other
hard-to-reach spots.

Tackle the Refrigerator

 

An
easy way to keep tabs on a refrigerator is to add one simple task to your trash
day routine: 

When
bagging up the garbage, open the fridge and eye its contents
. Are there leftovers that have gone bad? Toss them. Has any
produce liquefied in the crisper drawer? Dump it. Are the last few eggs in the
carton about to go off? Make a note to have omelets for dinner, and
congratulate yourself for being mindful of not wasting food.

How to Clean Spills in the Refrigerator: When sticky spills happen in the fridge or pantry, make
short work of cleaning them by making a compress of sorts. Soak a sponge or rag
in very hot water (mind your hands) and wring it so that it’s not dripping.
Then, press it onto the sticky spot until the compress begins to lose its heat.
If the sticky spill has loosened sufficiently, wipe it away; if it’s still
clinging stubbornly, repeat as needed until the substance loosens up, and then
wipe clean.

Take Out the Trash in a
Timely Fashion

 

Here is a hard
truth: Time will not make your trash situation better. Take care of it now.

 

Many
products designed for cleaning the shower and/or tub, sink and toilet do much
of the work for you, provided you let them. The instructions will tell you how
best to apply a product, and for how long to let it work before wiping or
scrubbing away. It’s always a good idea to test a new product on an
inconspicuous spot to
ensure that it doesn’t cause discoloration.
