I remember the very first time I drove over the Coronado bridge. I was fresh off a plane from Virginia, with our 4 year old and 5 week old in tow, sitting in the passenger seat while my husband drove so I could gawk out the window, giddy with excitement as I just kept saying, “I can’t believe we get to live here!”
We had scored some pretty sweet military orders. Big time. Having lived in Virginia Beach for 10 years and never having PCSd, we were ready for a change. It…Continue
The groundings are caused by two deep dips coupled with a high berm running the crest of Alameda. When longer trucks cross the berm, their trailers cannot clear it and they become stuck and in need of assistance by tow trucks to be dislodged. In the case of busses, we are assured that those groundings were the result of new driver who tried to cross in the center lane of Third where the berm is highest. That situation has been corrected.
In response to TAF concerns…

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.…

As an active member of the Third and Fourth Streets Neighborhood Association (TAF) I will be urging the Coronado Transportation Commission (CTC) to approve the 'Recommended Concept Plan' (Page 7-1through 7-20) and forward said recommendations to the City Council for further community discussion.

Coronado High School Engineering and Naval Science students participated in building underwater robot and holding a competition. The SeaPerch program was developed by the Office of Naval Research.
It's not enough making billions of dollars and being masters of the universe.
Today's business leaders and hedge fund gods want to get even better, so many of them are now spending their weekends at a Navy SEAL training camp.
You're probably envisioning a bunch of alpha Type A hedge funders being really intense in military gear on a deserted beach for a weekend. And you're right! But that's not all it's about.
