President Barack Obama’s dream to rid the world of nuclear weapons faces a tough sell with current and aspiring members of the nuclear club. Nuclear weapons are seen as the great equalizer by second tier powers and wannabes that makes them players on the world scene and gains them attention. It’s hard to imagine North Korea, for example, giving up membership in the exclusive club or that Iran can be persuaded from seeking to… Continue

As you may know, the School District and the BBMAC Foundation have mutually agreed to terminate the Aquatics Agreement. The District will assume operational control of the BBMAC facility in the next few months. A Task Force has been created by the District to identify means of bringing long term financial viability to the facility and to bring District activities back into BBMAC.
Former Chargers linebacker Steve Foley is being sued in federal court by the team, which wants $416,666 that an arbitrator ruled he owed the club after a career-ending shooting by an off-duty policeman in 2006.
The suit says that Foley's contract in effect at the time called for a $1.25 million “signing, reporting and playing” bonus. But the deal also said if Foley could not play or otherwise breached the contract, he owed the club a default payment of one-third the signing bonus —… Continue

Disneyland is not the only California address boasting a castle. On an island to the south, at the end of a curving two-mile bay bridge from San Diego, Hotel del Coronado combines Victorian elegance with Tinseltown glamour.
Red turrets crown the huge oceanside national historic landmark. Opened in 1888 by Elisha Babcock and H.L. Story, "The Del" attracted socialites, celebrities, diplomats and urban-dwellers seeking rejuvenation in the cool surf and clean air.
The documentary “San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge,” which premiered June 10 at the bridge’s 40th anniversary event sponsored by the City of Coronado, is now available to the public for purchase. The DVD, produced by Patrice Makovic and Arturo Sbicca of Village Videography, contains special features including extra interviews.
The program recounts the history of the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge from the early days of the ferries to the controversy… Continue
Note: It’s not an unfamiliar thing, to hear someone reminisce about their time in Coronado. More and more, and especially with the popularity of vehicles like Facebook, we get to hear these special memories. Kim Harris is just one of those guys who took time out from growing up to recognize there was something special about his surroundings. We are fortunate to have his remembrances to share with you, along with some special images.

Soon after the campaign began, Sullivan Solar Power announced that it was the company’s vision to use the City as a case study, demonstrating the power of solar photovoltaics by creating a solar… Continue
