For the second time in less than a month residents crowded the city council chamber to voice their opposition to a feasibility study for a multi-use path on Ocean Blvd.
The council voted unanimously to rescind the $100,00 they had approved in June. They did so in the face of overwhelming public opposition to the study. There were over 200 people, including 100 sitting outside in chairs the city had setup for them. The vast majority wore “Save Our Beach” stickers.…Continue

San Diego prominence as a military hub can be traced to one determined Marine: Major General Joseph H. Pendleton. Without his foresight, persuasive skills, and focused tenacity, San Diego would not be the military center it is today. Neither would Coronado.
According to those who knew him, Pendleton frequently pointed out that he and fellow Marine Charles H. Lyman could be considered discoverers of San…
There is a local Facebook group in Coronado that continues to help fill needs around town - all on their own. In the past, they have helped raise funds for the Silver Strand PTO, replaced a stolen bike, donated supplies to a school in need over the bridge and even distributed signs to remind drivers to "Please Slow Down".
As the temperatures rose last week, the non-AC classrooms of Coronado were hitting the high eighties making it very hard for students to…

Big changes are coming to the Meals-on-Wheels program next month. Long operated as an independent venture founded by one of Coronado's most beloved residents, Sharp Coronado’s “Meals on Wheels” recently decided that it could not provide, by itself, the quality of service seniors here deserved. Over the summer Sharp Coronado reached out to with Meals-on-Wheels of Greater San Diego, a larger organization whose only mission is provide nutritious meals to people who can no…Continue

Summer Days at the Beach
By Bruce HB Johnson
I chose my parents wisely, so I could be born and raised in Coronado. My dad was a Navy Fighter Pilot. Growing up on the island was like being in Mayberry, except we had a beach. Summers were magical. School got out in early June for summer vacation and did not resume until after Labor Day…

MGen Francis Patrick Mulcahy
By Oceanside - Veteran’s Writer’s Group, Gail Chatfield
Some might have called it a suicide mission that October day in 1918 on the frontlines in France, but not 24-year-old Capt. Francis Mulcahy, Flight Commander, Squadron A, First Marine Aviation Force. He was not a risk taker—that was evident from the risk assessment test he took to become an aviator--- and more importantly he had a fiancée waiting for him back home.…

Spiro’s Greek Cafe is a Coronado restaurant favorite, maybe because it is the only Greek food on island, maybe because it is snug in the prime location of the Ferry Landing, but most likely because of the quality of food Spiro’s Gyros consistently delivers.
Spiro’s Greek Cafe opened up shop in Coronado 17 years ago by Nancy and Spiro Chaconas. Spiro is a Greek native,…Continue
Last Saturday evening we walked the length of Ocean Blvd. at about 5 o'clock. We were reasonably well dressed because we were on our way to a reception at the Hotel Del. At least half dozen or more times, we were forced to find a way to move off the sidewalk to allow surreys and/or bikes go by. With even minor heels and nice dress shoes, this can be a daunting task since, in some places, the rather narrow sidewalk is bounded by boulders on one side and parking slots on the…
My wife and I attended the city council meeting on August 18, 2015 and were surprised and amazed at the opposition to the “bike path study.” As I listened, what particularly amazed me was that statements and arguments were being set forth based on a lack of any facts, reasons, or evidence which could be used to make a logical decision regarding just a “bike path study.”
Having been trained in research and having had professional experience in large organizations related…Continue
Spandex and side-ponytails reigned supreme at the Horton Grand Theatre in downtown San Diego this weekend -- and not just on the stage. Audience members sported 1980s scrunchies and legwarmers as they mingled in the lobby, complimenting each other on the brightest shade of neon.
Inside the theatre, a feeling of familiarity permeated, and not just because everyone had loved and lived through the…Continue
