Cozy Up This Week With a Bowl of Hunter's Minestrone

Trying to decide what to serve a group of Newfoundland dog owners, handlers, judges, and club members at our Regional Specialty Show is no easy task. February is typically cold and rainy weather; thankfully, the show is held indoors. This will be our second year hosting the ringside luncheon. Last year, everyone seemed to appreciate having the choice between a comforting, hot bowl of Barefoot Contessa's Chicken Pot Pie, and Bon Appetit's Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup...

Remaining ferry service deserves support

Community Essay by Councilwoman Barbara Denny

As The San Diego Union-Tribune has reported, the commuter ferry service between San Diego’s Broadway Pier and North Island Naval Air Station has been discontinued by military command. I support this decision because the security of the men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for us, and those who support them, is crucial.

But commuter ferry service from Broadway Pier to Coronado’s Ferry Landing remains… Continue

Family Friendly Coronado Barbers on the Corner of 1st & C Avenue

I needed to get a haircut today and get one for my 4 year old son. Instead of going to the usual barber shop on Orange and 10th, we decided to bike down to Coronado Barbers (near Coronado Ferry Landing). This was a great decision since they had plenty of toys, kids movies playing and a wonderful atmosphere to keep my son occupied. Plus, they gave a great haircut.

Jaime and…

Village Theatre: Sides take stands on terrazzo renovation

CORONADO — Coronado is wrestling with what to do about a badly damaged terrazzo in front of the 1947 Village Theater on Orange Avenue, which is slated for a major renovation this summer.

City staff members have recommended that a new terrazzo — polished flooring usually made of marble or stone chips set in mortar — be installed instead of repairing the old one. But preservationists say that if the terrazzo is removed, Coronado will lose a bit of its character and… Continue

The tunnel issue is not a 3rd or 4th street issue - it is a Coronado issue!

The tunnel issue is not a 3rd or 4th street issue - it is a Coronado

issue. When we have our main arteries clogged and bottlenecked due to a

huge requirement of traffic flow from one area of the island, it

affects all of us insidiously in so many ways. The speed alone of

vehicles that rev up their cars on the highway 75 (on their way to work)

is so deadly for pedestrians and bikes, etc; people who are in traffic

only have urgency on their minds and loose their… Continue
