Coronado Living: Why Coronado Is So Friendly, And How To Make It Even More So

“I think I’m going to get prosecco,” my friend Heather announced.

I looked up from my menu, surprised.

It was 11 o’clock in the morning, on a Thursday, and we had exactly 45 more minutes away from our kids. Well, most of our kids. Heather’s newborn son was sleeping in his stroller next to us.

“Prosecco?! I was thinking of getting some big chocolate dessert, but you put me to shame!”

Heather laughed, and when the waiter came over to our table, we…

Why You Should Invest in Companies You've Never Heard of Before

Investors interested in generating strong profits from their stock portfolios should have a large investment in the stocks of companies they have never heard of before. 

The vast majority of investors make a simple mistake: they have way too little exposure to small-cap stocks (and too much to large-cap stocks).  Many believe small-cap stocks are too risky and that large-cap stocks are “safer.”   The fact is that while…

CC-125 Celebration to Include Talk by Bestselling Suspense Novelist Steve Martini

At first blush, Coronado may not seem an obvious place to set a thriller, but novelist Steve Martini decided it would be the perfect place for the protagonist of his bestselling book series, attorney Paul Madriani, to set up shop.

“It had the feel of quaint village next to a large urban center,” Martini said in a phone interview. With its strong naval presence and proximity to the U.S./Mexican boarder,…

The Avenue of Heroes Banner Program Rolls Out



How does a neighborhood, considered to have the busiest highway for its length in the country, turn the tide and become a pride of Coronado again? The TAF (Third and Fourth Streets) group asserted that one challenge, the Navy commuter traffic, could actually become their own "Crown."

When the concept of an “Avenue of Heroes," (to honor the significant military route of Third and Fourth Streets) was brought before the Coronado Transportation Commission (CTC) in January…

Community Voices: Coronado Traffic is Out of Control

The recent death of a pedestrian at Fourth and A should be a wakeup call for the City of Coronado, but will it?  And the serious injury of a teenage pedestrian at Fourth and B about a year ago should have raised a red flag too, but it didn’t.  It’s astonishing, but an EFFECTIVE and TIMELY plan of action from our City has yet to materialize, and all we get are more studies and surveys.  Yes, CALTRANS is derelict too, so is the Navy, and San Diego judges don’t help much…

Soft music plays in the background and seats and tables are positioned throughout the store for customers to not grab a book and go, but make book shopping an experience. The staff are friendly and share the same love…
