Whitney Antrim is the obvious best choice to join the CUSD School Board. In a way, Whitney was born to the job- her grandfather was an advocate for the youth of Coronado and she and her father shared the same high school history teacher. No one has deeper roots on our island; more knowledge …

As TV entertainment goes this season, I found the first presidential debate slightly more entertaining than most TV comedies and certainly more so than Donald Trump’s old TV reality series, “Celebrity Apprentice.” But perhaps I’m too easily amused. Aside from whatever entertainment value the…

I’ve been fortunate to know these two wonderful guys for a lo-o-ong time. Thirty-five years in Mike’s case, when we were both members of the Coronado Active 20-30 Club in the mid 80s, and about 30 years with Casey when he was playing Little League and I was coaching another team.

Now you can do it and here’s how.

In concert with global warming we are once again reminded of the threats to our pollinators, you know, the little guys who make sure we have the food we love to eat and need. The most obvious are the bees that fly from plant to plant making sure each plant is pollinated so that it continues to bear fruit and we have strawberries, apples, peaches, tomatoes , etc., next season. Bees are attracted to bright colors and ultraviolet but not red. Red looks black to them and they are not interested.

Here’s a prediction which I sincerely hope does not come true. We won’t go to bed on election night knowing who will serve as president for the next four years as we did in 2016. That year, by 11 p.m. on the west coast, we knew that Donald Trump had enough electoral votes to win an upset vic…

In Coronado there is an “L” in vote. It stands for letters to the editor. Every two years in Coronado we face an election in the fall. This year is no different.

The Coronado Eagle & Journal will strive to cover what is important, locally, to all of us. Our editorial section will focus on the all-important local candidates as they have an opportunity to answer questions posed to them, weekly during the run up to the November election.

Also, beginning with the issue of Sept. 26, we will continue a tradition that started in 1988: political letters to the editor during an election will cost 10 cents per word in the Coronado Eagle & Journal. This modest

We are at war. It is a hot war, a life-threatening war, and potentially, a near-extinction event. This should not be a war of economics, it should not be a war of opinions, and it is not an enemy that will miraculously vanish one day. This is a classic war of life and death. While our notion…
