Tunnel Waste

Personally, think the tunnel project is a waste of time and money. Admit that I am not the expert on such a project, but like the airport concept in South Bay, believe way too much energy is being expended on the topic. Sometimes, someone just needs to stand up and say, "this is not a good use of time". Time, after all, is the one thing that we never get back and should be valued with more regard.



In regards to Mayor Casey's request on the toll, I would oppose it in relation to the… Continue

Tolls on the Bridge

Coronado has been receiving a lot of media coverage about the possibility of reinstating tolls. There have been reports about possible "$10 Tolls" and many people have contacted me with their concerns about any tolls and/or a tunnel project.



We had a City Council meeting today where we accepted a report that explained how much money new tolls could raise for a new traffic solution like a tunnel. The report stated that $3-$5 worth of tolls could fund between $300-$500 million toward a… Continue

Coronado council discusses bridge-toll study

Coronado Mayor Casey Tanaka said today that any possible toll on the San Diego-Coronado Bridge should consider carpool incentives, be collected only on one side and not exceed $5 roundtrip.



Those were some of the concerns Tanaka shared at a council meeting after a recently completed study about possibly reinstituting bridge tolls.



The tolls would help fund traffic projects, including a proposed tunnel, to ease traffic congestion.

Bridge tolls may pave way to ease traffic woes

Coronado officials are considering a San Diego-Coronado Bridge toll ranging from $3 to $10 per roundtrip to help pay for a proposed tunnel or other projects to ease traffic congestion in the city.



In February, Coronado officials began publicly discussing the idea of a toll to help fund projects to alleviate the city's growing traffic problem. A proposed one-mile tunnel from the bridge to North Island Naval Air Station is one option being studied.



An analysis the city… Continue

She has a right to sing the blues

Painful romantic breakups and bitter divorces have inspired such landmark albums as Beck's “Sea Change,” Joni Mitchell's “Blue” and Marvin Gaye's “Here, My Dear.”



But in the case of budding jazz and Brazilian music singer Tokeli, getting divorced is what inspired her to start pursuing a musical career in the first place. While she didn't enjoy the prelude, she's very pleased with the resolution.



“I went through a really bad and very expensive custody battle five years… Continue

No stardom, no glitz, just honor for SEALs

I half-expected them to appear on “The Today Show.”



Or maybe toss out the first pitch at that new Yankee Stadium. Or show up in grainy video on TMZ.com, grabbing a latte at Starbucks.



I'm conditioned that way. In this age of instant celebrity, I figured the three Navy SEAL snipers who took out three pirates off the coast of Somalia last week would get the full star treatment.



Lady GaGa gets it. David Beckham gets it. Even a sweet Scottish spinster who can belt… Continue

Navy commissions destroyer honoring Coronado's Stockdale

PORT HUENEME, Calif. — The U.S. Navy commissioned its newest guided-missile destroyer Saturday in a ceremony honoring Coronado's own Vice Adm. James Stockdale, the ship's namesake.



Four thousand folding chairs stood on the dock at the Naval Base Ventura County near Oxnard, in front of a gray behemoth there to be christened the USS Stockdale, in remembrance of one of the Navy's most highly decorated officers.



Most of those seats were filled before the hour-long ceremony… Continue
