Little did the whale know that he would become the star of all three local news stations by that evenings' broadcast. That's because Daron Case, who many in town know for his majestic photos of waves breaking on the Silver Strand, was there to film the migration.
Daron and his fellow surfers watched the whale with awe, and then Daron, armed with his GoPro,…Continue

Spreckels of the Coronado Beach Company leased to Curtiss for a very low fee.…Continue

Last weekend a pet (Smokey, pictured above) got loose and police responded and tasered the animal multiple times. Smokey died later at the vet. It is impossible for any of us to know the situation since we weren't there. However, this caused many to ask, "Why wasn't Animal Control called?"
So, I started asking around - because I assumed it was PAWS that ran Animal Control - the building on First Street. I also looked up what the City has on its website, which only…Continue

If you are looking to experience the joys of…Continue
