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…

Coronado Schools Celebrate April's "Month of the Military Child" with Reading, Art and Puppet Performances

In an effort to recognize the service and personal sacrifice military children make, April has been designated as the Month of the Military Child. In 1986, then Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Weinberger recognized that military family members, especially military kids, were an integral part of a service member’s ability to perform his or her duties at home and abroad.

With Coronado’s close connection to the military, Village Elementary and Silver Strand Elementary schools…

Military, Moving and Matters of the Heart

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…

Community Voices: What's up with trucks and busses getting wedged at Third and Alameda (SR282)?

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…

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.…

Third and Fourth Streets Study

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.

Fehrs and Peers are an established and highly reputable firm. Their integrity and expertise are unassailable. To ignore their recommendations defies logic.
