Do You Know Your Neighbor Behind the Picket Fence?


Neighbors. Love them or hate them, everyone talks about their neighbors- especially in our small town. Odds are you know more “of” your neighbors, than actually about them. The age-old “borrow a cup of sugar from your neighbor” is an understood concept to everyone, but how often is it put into practice? I have lived in Coronado for seven years now and in five different homes. Not until my last move did I finally find an…

Community Voices: The "Plastification" of Coronado

Let's stop using fake grass.  The idea to cover the earth with plastic is wrong and it still has to be washed.  Instead, to save water, let's go back to desert plants.

But what does that mean for your…
