CORONADO — While schools across the country are banning hats because of possible ties to gangs, Coronado’s Village Elementary is encouraging its students to keep their heads covered.

“We’re wearing hats so we don’t get skin cancer,” fifth-grader Chantal Salazar explained after a special assembly last week where the school, the local parent-teacher group and public safety officials kicked off the “Hats for Health — Be Cool in School” program.

Chantal, 10, and about 900 fellow… Continue

JOANNE FARYON (Host): To tunnel or not to tunnel - that is the question Coronado residents will be asked for a third time in twelve years.

Wine Pairing Lunches

The list of why I love Italy is long and has consistently expanded since I moved here in 2007. Near the top of my list, is the wine pairing lunches offered at many wineries. Most of the time, a meal with wine is pleasantly inexpensive. That is not necessarily the case at these feasts, however, but they serve their best. The meticulous attention of pairing wine with well thought-out, exquisite dishes is… Continue

Tunnel, Schmunnel...Nuts

The bridge was another wonderful idea by politicians who cared not about the residents of Coronado who were strongly against it. Now a tunnel which will be costly beyond your wildest dreams. Since Coronado is really a sand bar, how will the tunnel hold up in a 5.0 or greater earth quake. Who will pay for the tunnel? and how many cars a day through it...how much per car? Stop the "we have to do something so lets build a tunnel" insanity.

Coronado Boys Look to Finish Strong

Coach Brian Hiatt-Aleu (Nado Select) and the Coronado HS boys varsity soccer squad look for a strong finish as the end of the season draws near with only three games in sight. Last week the Islanders (12-4-2) registered a 3-3 draw with Hoover before falling to Lincoln, 2-0.

Coronado hoped for an improvement against a troubling Hoover squad, who the Islanders trailed, 3-0, earlier in the…

Revisiting Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell (020810) by J. F. Kelly, Jr.

A commentary by J. F. Kelly, Jr.

Here we go again; another debate on gays in the military. Having written a dozen or so pieces on the topic and having debated it on TV and radio several times, I’ve heard all the pros and cons. I’m frankly bored with the topic and so are most of the service members and ex-members I’ve talked with. But it won’t go away because gay rights activists won’t let it, so once again we’ll hear pundits and politicians who haven’t a clue as to what service life… Continue
