When Coronado local Laurie Ruiz de Castilla posted a photo on a Coronado Facebook page of her new Little Free Library, she never expected such a warm response. She captioned the photo, "Come take a book and leave a book. Leave a message in the notebook too," and then gave her address so everyone could stop by.

Coronado Living: Too Close for Comfort? Living with Your Neighbors in Coronado

My family and I moved to Coronado this past August at the peak of the late summer heat wave. With no air conditioning indoors, we threw open every window and ate every meal outside.

Our first evening in Coronado, we were eating take-out from Vons on the front deck. Suddenly we stopped and listened, amazed. The neighbor kids had come outside, and they were chattering loudly with each other as they jumped on their trampoline. We could…

Community Voices: Avenue of Heroes' Banners Going up Soon

After one year and 15-months, the Avenue of Heroes Banners will be displayed on SR 282 in Coronado (Third and Fourth Streets). It is hard to believe the Avenue of Heroes was not welcome in a city where the heart of the military in the United States resides, but it was a one year long fight. Many residents were opposed to banners as cluttering the already busily signed roadway. For this reason the Banner Program was requested for only the SR 282 portion of Third and Fourth.…
