Dentists May Register To Help With State’s COVID-19 Pandemic Response
Updated: March 27, 2020 - 2:20 pm

California health care providers will be challenged to meet the needs of patients during this pandemic, with active COVID-19 cases expected to surpass the medical capability of the state to respond within its normal workforce. Dentists, with their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and sterile surgical techniques, are invaluable to the health care worker surge capacity necessary to meet this need.

Dentists may register now at the state of California’s Disaster Healthcare Volunteers website. California developed this process in recognition of the need to have a list of pre-credentialed licensed health care volunteers who can be deployed without interruption to assist with critical emergency care needs.

2010 CHS Girls Soccer Team Wins CIF Division III Crown, Are Tops In County
Updated: March 27, 2020 - 11:39 am

With no sports to cover, prep or otherwise, we’re digging back into the Nado Natterings vault to revive some past articles about Islander championship teams from the past. As a reminder, when this was written, the CIF Sections were determined by a school’s student enrollment. This column is from March 10, 2010, and highlights one of, if not the best, Girls Soccer Team to represent Coronado High School.

-David Axelson

By the time the Coronado Girls Soccer Team took to the pitch at Valhalla High School Saturday evening, they were the lone No. 1 seed to advance to the Finals in San Diego County CIF Soccer, Boys or Girls. The Islanders were also ranked No. 2 in the CIF San Diego Section, second only to The Bishop’s School, which handed Coronado their only loss earlier in the season. But Bishop’s fell in the Division IV Semifinals and No. 3 ranked Torrey Pines was an early round Division I playoff victim.

Mixing metaphors, the Islanders were the lone tree standing in the forest, with a target painted on their collective backs the size of the USS Ronald Reagan. If you were looking for additional elements to wring your hands over, Coronado didn’t look particularly sharp in their 1-0 Semifinal victory over Mission Bay. Also, Coronado was going to face La Jolla High School in the Division III Finals, a team the Islanders had knocked off twice already on their way to an undefeated season in the Western League. The Vikings were the same team that defeated Coronado in the Finals a year ago, under similar circumstances, by the score of 4-0.

Losing The Spring Semester, A College Senior’s Perspective
Updated: March 27, 2020 - 11:43 am

My name is D’amy Steward and I am a member of the class of 2020 – the class that lost their final spring semester. What does this loss mean? For many of us, we heard news of the Coronavirus and its impact on our senior year while on spring break. The immediate impact: missed goodbyes to friends, professors, and advisors; missing our final walk to class across the quad; a final time studying in the library; running into friends randomly on campus abruptly terminated; a premature last sporting event; and most significantly, a graduation that will not be. These and many more “lasts” have passed before I even have a chance to process it. The feeling of closure on the past four years of

Francis Gary Powers, Jr. Addresses Gathering At The Coronado Public Library
Updated: March 30, 2020 - 11:39 am

Although his name sounds familiar, you may have trouble placing Francis Gary Powers, Jr. He is the son of famed U-2 Pilot Francis Gary Powers, Sr., who was shot down in his reconnaissance plane over the Soviet Union, May 1, 1960. The incident was one of the most famous events in the Cold War battle between the United States and the Soviet Union, which had political ramifications for many years. Powers Jr., who goes by Gary was in Coronado recently to address roughly 35 residents at the Coronado Public Library about his famous father and to sell copies of his book, “Spy Pilot.”

Powers Sr., who for clarification purposes we’ll call Francis, came from humble origins, born August 17, 1929, during the height of the Great Depression, and raised in Pound, Virginia. Gary said, “His Dad Oliver Powers was a coal miner, who family history said did a little bootlegging on the side. They did what they had to do to make ends meet. Dad told me stories from when he was a kid, that his parents didn’t know where their next nickel was coming from, not just the next dollar.”
