Owners of the Hotel del Coronado face a January deadline to retire more than $600 million in debt, but are hoping their lenders will give them time while they await a recovery of the depressed lodging industry.

Strategic Hotels and Resorts, part of a joint… Continue

Last week, we decided to have a family movie night. We chose the Wizard of Oz from the Coronado Library. The kids groaned a bit since it wasn't an animated movie and honestly, we weren't sure it would stand up to today's Hollywood movies.

So, two thumbs up and definitely worth the .50 cents!

I was going through some boxes in my garage looking for pictures today and I came across one of myself with a very special dog from a year ago when we first moved to Coronado. A few months after we moved here I had a medical issue that sent me to the emergency room at Sharp Coronado Hospital for most of the day. It was bad timing because my husband was out of town on business and I still had one child at home so I had to rely on a friend I didn't know very well…

The four classes of CHS have been working all week on floats to showcase at the homecoming parade on November 5th. The theme for the floats this year was Disney. The freshmen, new to the art of competitive float building, designed a scene from "The Jungle Book", complete with a waterfall, tree, and students dressed up as animal characters. The sophomores, returning from a demoralizing loss last year in which they were disqualified for allegedly using help from parents, are still bitter, and put… Continue
