Senior Robbie Hemp has had the pleasure of living in Coronado for his whole life. His father served in the navy for 25 years, was stationed on the island in 1993 and was never reassigned until his retirement in 2003.
Robbie says has had a wonderful experience at Coronado High School; “I have learned a ton and have had some incredible teachers and classes.” He loves how tight knit the student body is, and the fact that everyone gets along and has a good time. Robbie…Continue

Senior Madeleine Hill moved to Coronado in 2006 when her father took over as the Commanding Officer of VR-57.
Madeleine states that Coronado High School is one of the best schools out there, and everyone who gets the chance to attend is lucky. “ The students get to take so many classes from amazing teachers and we have many opportunities and events that students at other schools don’t, and I feel very privileged.” Her favorite teacher was Algebra II/Trig Honors,…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

If you are a Coronado local it is impossible to not know about The Little Club. Maybe you have stopped in with a few friends on Monday night for karaoke, maybe it was the first place you went after you got off the ship, maybe you were like me and purchased your first legal 21 year old beer there, or maybe you know of The Little Club and have yet to make it down to First Street to check it out first hand. No matter your Little…Continue
Even though senior Adam Espe has never lived in Coronado, he has ample Coronado experience as a student. Adam’s older brother attended Coronado High School through the CoSA program. His parents wanted an equally positive experience for Adam, so in the sixth grade Adam’s parents enrolled him in Coronado Middle School.
Adam’s Coronado High School experience was challenging, but rewarding, “balancing academics, NJROTC, and social time. Being an inter-district transfer student…Continue

Laura McNeal at her computer with Link on her lap
As a child in rural Utah, novelist Laura McNeal was obsessed with books. “I lived in books more than anywhere else,” she said. But she never gave much thought to writing one herself until she was asked to analyze a Hemingway short story in high school. The experience taught her that books could teach readers something about life. McNeal reckoned that if she could write like…Continue

Our first home in D.C.
When my husband and I first got married, we lived in a 388 sq ft studio in Washington, D.C. That tiny apartment was like a bird’s nest; we were level with blooming magnolias in spring and could see the Capitol Dome out our window.
Despite having just enough room to turn around in, we made a regular habit of hosting friends for dinner. We were young and so happy, and so we opened our doors and borrowed chairs…Continue
