While we don't have someone who plays Taps on a bugle, we do have morning and evening colors, which I, along with many others can hear from home.  I truly enjoy these sounds each and every day as they remind me of those serving here and abroad in harm's way.  How apropos that Coronado declare these tunes as the official music of our blessed city.

Merry Christmas to all.
