Summer Days at the Beach
By Bruce HB Johnson
I chose my parents wisely, so I could be born and raised in Coronado. My dad was a Navy Fighter Pilot. Growing up on the island was like being in Mayberry, except we had a beach. Summers were magical. School got out in early June for summer vacation and did not resume until after Labor Day…

MGen Francis Patrick Mulcahy
By Oceanside - Veteran’s Writer’s Group, Gail Chatfield

Spiro’s Greek Cafe opened up shop in Coronado 17 years ago by Nancy and Spiro Chaconas. Spiro is a Greek native,…Continue

Co-written by Suzi Lewis Pignataro and Coronado Scribe, Mary Beth Dodson, May 2015
Commander John “Jack” R. Lewis, active in both WW II and the Korean War, still lives in the Coronado home he built for his family in 1955.
As a boy, Jack could have belonged to Spanky and his gang. He was a rough and tumble kid, always looking for a neighborhood football skirmish or a boat to sail on the rivers and creeks of New Jersey. He loved water, and remembered with…

ENS Paul Lowthian
(December, 18, 1921 to December 28, 1943)
She remembers the last time she saw him, although her memories are dimmed by the intervening 70 + years, waving over his shoulder, a smile strong on his tanned face. And the flint of gold wings on his chest. He mouthed the words, “I love you,” and I’ll be home soon. He had his B4 bag and his flight gear and headed out on what was supposed to be an uneventful flight to return a damaged PB4Y-1 Liberator from…Continue
