A barnacled grey whale silently swam south while members of the "Cays Crew" were surfing last Tuesday morning. 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

At the next city council meeting, on October 6th, the city council will again wrestle with traffic problems and finding solutions. Unlike the last two meetings where the discussion centered on bicycle lanes, this time, motor vehicles are front and center.
Specifically, the council will discuss recommendations in a study by the engineering firm of Fehr and Peers, to reduce congestion, stop speeding and improve safety along Third and Fourth Streets between the Naval…Continue
Slow Streets decided to learn why this particular intersection was so dangerous. See what they found:
What surprised them was that cars made up far less of intersection users than other modes of transportation. They also learned that for children, physically challenged, and seniors, there was not enough time to cross before the light changed.…

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

At its September 15 meeting the City Council reversed its previous decision to include bike lane and route markings in the already awarded contract to slurry seal Coronado streets. This was the final nail in the coffin of the City’s ill-fated Bicycle Master Plan. Despite its decision to abandon the existing plan, the…Continue

The Second Annual Coronado Treasures Roadshow returns on October 10 to Coronado Museum at 1100 Orange Avenue from 8am-5pm.
“Our fist year was magic,” said Brue Linder, Executive-Director of the Coronado Historical Association. Just like the famed PBS program, the Treasures Roadshow provided “wild excitement, occasional disappointments and intriguing stories.”
Last year someone brought in an autograph book from a Nineteenth Century US Senator. The book had…Continue
The most important event in Coronado to affect our nation was the “birth of Naval Aviation, in 1911” due to the trials, experience, and persistence of Glenn Curtiss, who pioneered the first aircraft with capacity to land and take off from both land and sea. The first pilot instruction course on the “Triad” began and continued for many years on North Island, which John D. Spreckels of the Coronado Beach Company leased to Curtiss for a very low fee.…Continue

The "Late Late Show with James Corden" highlighted (rather, roasted) Coronado's bike lane striping opponents as well as Mayor Casey Tanaka. It's been circulating via multiple social media platforms since last night and we have received more than a few texts and emails asking for coverage.
The Coronado 'bit' starts at the 1 minute mark and lasts for over 4 minutes. …
Coronado Playhouse has a new production underway at their theatre in the Coronado Community Center, and lovers of 1920s flappers and light-footed tap dancing won't want to miss it. Thoroughly Modern Millie is playing now through Oct 18, 2015, with shows every Thursday through Sunday.
The play is based on the 1967 film of the same name with frisky flappers, a dragon-lady villainess, and mystery and mayhem that explode into a surprise fairy-tale ending. After its…Continue

I didn't expect much when I walked into the theatre on Sunday night. The trailer for The Intern looked smart but not particularly memorable or enduring, and I assumed the presence of Robert De Niro would mean the film would be something like Meet the Parents -- slapstick, not much more.
I was wrong. The movie is genuine and deeply touching. With crisp, careful filming, the filmmaker captured the elegant grandeur of Brooklyn, the aesthetic appeal of a…Continue
