Thank you, Carolyn Rogerson for having the courage to shine a light in a dark place and unveil what may be the true culprit or culprits lurking behind words of outrage and demands for civility in our community. The anonymous threat that you received reveals the truth behind the recent cries of others about the lack of honor and civility among caring and concerned parents in this community.

Having grown up in Kansas, and now living in Coronado, I found Jon Sinton’s column on Kansas’ surprising vote to protect its state constitutional right to abortion interesting.

The applicant’s statement, “The entry arch is not in line with the brand identity of Blanco” still haunts me. John Turpin cited that statement made in the applicant’s appeal letter. For Coronado, the Orange Avenue Corridor Specific Plan was developed and passed in 2004 to establish our “bran…

On July 21, 2022, a letter from me was published in the Coronado Eagle & Journal. Evidently, my message touched a nerve. This touched nerve decided to send an anonymous warning letter to my home. Warning a person they must change, “before its too late”, is a threat; of what? When an omin…

Bravo to Lauren Curtis for her e-bike report featured on the front page of the July 27th edition of the Eagle & Journal. It is a complimentary article to “The Buzz On E-Bikes,” by Chloe Berk featured in December 2021 in another local publication. Both are correct and informative.

I read with interest the front page article on La Avenida and the letters from John Turpit and the Cristilli’s in last week’s Eagle & Journal. I was the Chair of the Design Review Commission (DRC) that reviewed the proposals, and I thought we worked hard to come up with compromised solut…

As a country, we’ve generally been intolerant of bullies, autocrats, dictators, and those who would cling to power without majority support. King George III said that George Washington would be “the greatest man of his era” if he voluntarily gave up power. Donald Trump is the worst man of hi…

Campaigning by incumbents seeking re-election or higher office and those seeking to defeat them, plus some fresh faces new to the political scene, has begun in earnest. The issues are too weighty and numerous to be discussed in depth in the space available here, but not too numerous to at le…

In last week’s Eagle & Journal, Susan Keith expressed her frustration with Mayor Bailey’s agenda manipulation of the 7/19 City Council meeting. An effective ploy when he doesn’t want opposing opinions voiced. Had the Blanco/La Avenida item been heard as scheduled, one or more of the doze…

For decades, many of us fought to preserve the iconic beauty and unique past of this town. We did it not for any financial gain, but because we believed that the buildings should reflect the history of a small village that grew up around one of the country’s and indeed the world’s, most famo…

As many of you in Coronado already know, 3 of the 5 four-year term seats on the Coronado Unified School District Board of Trustees are up for election this November (you get to make 3 votes). Also, there is a third two-year term seat being elected to fill the seat of an interim appointment f…

It’s almost two and a half years before the 2024 elections and we still have the mid-terms to get through, but it’s not too early for Democrat leaders to keep discouraging President Joe Biden from running for re-election. Nor is it too early for Republicans who really want to make America gr…

It appears I may have made an error when writing that Jon Sinton spoke before the Coronado Democratic Club. Mr Sinton has requested a fact check. I believe, several months ago, I read that Mr Sinton was scheduled to speak to the CDC. I do regret the error. Mr Sinton states, “I do not, have n…

In a little over 18 months after Trump, the U.S. has gone all the way from energy independence to energy dependence; gas prices are at all-time highs; we’ve gone from a secured southern border to a wide-open border where nearly three million illegals have flooded into the country untested an…

I have not been to a city council meeting in a long time, but there were a couple of issues I found of interest, so off I went. The meeting was last Tuesday and there was absolutely no parking around the city hall. I finally found a spot up near the Boathouse and made my way to the council c…

I am a candidate for CUSD School Board, and I would like to address a letter from last week’s Eagle & Journal that mentioned me by name. The author’s premise was the importance of voters getting to know “thy” candidates for School Board. I couldn’t agree more. The author pointed out that…

The comedian Jack Benny made a living pretending to be a miser and a terrible violinist, when in real life, he was a generous philanthropist and an accomplished musician. He employed misdirection in service of an obvious but funny-anyway joke. After all, that’s show biz.
