Coronado Living: 10 Reasons I Love the Coronado Library

When my family and I arrived in Coronado last August, I made a beeline for the Coronado Library. I had good reason: we had just moved from a small military base in Sicily, Italy, with a very modest library with limited resources. A self-confessed library nerd, I had read about the Coronado Library and searched its online catalog multiple times before arriving on the island. I couldn't wait to see it in…

"Danny Collins" Now Playing at Village Theater

"The following is kind of based on a true story... a little bit."

Thus begins the humorous and heartwarming story of an aging rockstar and his "broken... nothing left to break" life.

Danny Collins (flawlessly acted by Al Pacino) has had a long life of great success. However, everything changes the moment his best friend and agent (Christopher Plummer) hands him a letter than John Lennon wrote Danny at the start of his career.

Councilman Richard Bailey on Part-Time Coronado Residents

It didn't bother Richard Bailey that he had only lived in Coronado for three years and was a renter (at the time) when he ran for Coronado City Council.  He knew he had the commitment, the desire, and the focus to serve our town and serve it well. 

He also knew he had a fresh perspective.  Not being born and raised in Coronado and being relatively young (he's in his late 20s) he's committed to taking a look at policies and spending traditions with a fresh look. As…

Two Hidden Gems for Locals on the Landing: Miss Match and Men's Mojo

Coronado locals tend to think of the Ferry Landing as a place with some good restaurants, but not really a place to shop. The stores there, which many locals regard as filled with key chains, T-shirts, and beach-themed snow globes, are for the tourists streaming off the ferry; but nestled between the bike rentals and sea shell stores are two boutiques that have much to offer Coronado locals as well as our visitors:  Miss Match, an exciting boutique for all women (which I couldn't…

City Poised to Create a Second Tourist District to Market Coronado in the Off-Season

Plans are afoot to market Coronado a tourist destination during the winter, as well as summer, by creating a second Coronado Tourism Improvement District. Unlike the original Coronado Tourism Improvement District (CTID), the second district, dubbed CTIDII, will only target conventions and large groups and will have little or no impact on Village life in general, except to boost local businesses, its proponents say.  The city council will take up the proposal at its April 21…

City Asked to Consider Separate Tennis, Pickleball Courts

Tennis and pickleball are both extremely popular in Coronado, and for the past few years they’ve shared space on the city’s tennis courts. However, it’s an arrangement with which neither side is pleased. A few weeks ago, a group of pickleball players approached Councilman Richard Bailey for help. After hearing them out, he contacted the Coronado Tennis Association (CTA) in what he said was an effort to find “the best solution for tennis and pickleball.”

The issue came…

Trained Dolphins in the Bay: A Look Inside the Navy’s Marine Mammal Program

Have you seen them? Down by Ferry Landing, a dolphin suddenly appears – and it's wearing a harness. Or a sea lion splashes by the piers of Seaport Village, accompanied by a small boat with trainers and researchers. 

What are they doing, and why?

Seeking answers to these questions, I attended a tour of the U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program facility, which is located…
