We require representation at the Port that is sensitive to what is best for Coronado, not what primarily promotes revenue for the Port. For instance, Port Planners need to be put on notice now that a trailer park in the middle of a family neighborhood like the Cays, and another restaurant on…

Way, way back when, when yours truly was a lowly student worker with the City of Coronado, I spent the summer of ‘76 sweating away as a golf course maintenance man, er, person, working for Superintendent Hank Vavak, a wonderfully jovial gent, large and in charge at good ol’ Coronado Muni, wh…

Being the chronic procrastinator that I am, I have finally gotten around to responding to a wonderful letter to the editor by Eddie Murray Pietrzak. Several months ago, he described memories of living in New Jersey where his father was a pilot of Navy airships/blimps. It brought back wonderf…

Why, in the longed for peace and quiet of an off-year, would I disturb that peace and talk about elections? Because it is in these off-years, while we’re exhausted from the perpetual campaigning, that the nefarious work of the antimajoritarians is done.

I would like to give perspective on the Cottages they want to put in from a Cays resident. This development will vastly increase the traffic in the Cays and the transient residents in the Cays. The city does not not allow Air B&Bs of less than one month, but yet they are willing to allow…

The word “chaos” is appearing with increasing frequency in the media these days and is being used liberally by all factions of the two major political parties. My sense is that it has characterized both the Trump and Biden administrations and that it has been used most often to describe the …

The tree is down with ornaments lovingly wrapped in tissue paper and tucked away for next year. However, that is as far as I have gotten to returning the house to non-holiday living. New Year’s Day is my usual day for decluttering the house of the decorations, but a luncheon in January gave …

I cannot tell you how much I enjoy the letters that the Coronado Eagle & Journal publishes on Mr. Sinton’s perceptive views on American politics. As a Social Scientist from the University of San Diego, I learned that often the wealthy do not understand the causes and solutions of America…

According to the 2022 election results at least, the Republican Party regained control of the House of Representatives. You could have fooled me. It can’t even seem to gain control of its own members. Recently in this space, I noted the low approval rating of Congress at 22%. Here are two su…

The first high-tech device I ever operated was an IBM… Selectric typewriter, that is. Oh, how well I remember that red typesetting contraption which yours truly learned to use in the 1974-75 school  year as Page One editor of THE ISLANDER, mighty Coronado High’s weekly student paper. A pair …

It is no secret, we live in Paradise. Every day, we get to experience a beautiful climate and a village atmosphere that keeps us in place. Sharing this wonderland isn’t the problem, but absorbing the back lash of the tourist experience is something quite different.

The time for resolutions is over. The time for action is past due if we are to change the direction the nation is heading. The elections are over and the priorities for Congress and the Executive Branch are clear. They are (1) ending the chaos at our southern border by whatever it takes, (2)…

Late Saturday night… Christmas Eve 2022, dozens of migrants arrived by bus to Washington DC. Families and children were greeted by freezing temperatures and few had any warm clothing. Church groups quickly arrived and passed out blankets to help keep them warm. Images of migrants, wrapped in…

After you have spent almost twenty years raising your child – six of those years alone – you form a bond that seems unbreakable. You get her through high school and off to college and even though the miles separate you, the need to be together is still there, right?

A check kiter from Brazil sheds identities the way snakes shed their skin, appears in New York State as a well-educated, rich congressional candidate with a compelling past in which his family survived the Holocaust, he was a mucky-muck on Wall Street at such storied institutions as Goldman …

Concerning the Cottages at the Cays, it seems that the nearby residents commenting at City Council meetings are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill, or should I say quay wall. The land for this project is unused and not natural habitat; it is landfill created from the same dredging t…

The ongoing political turmoil based on the far rights avowed purpose of protecting democracy in America is fatally flawed. How can the far right maintain their claims of America First when their programs are based on and espouse the undemocratic policies of racial, gender, immigration and re…

The start of a new year is the time for that annual exercise in futility known as the making of New Year’s resolutions. We seldom keep them for long, if at all, but the process makes us feel virtuous so I’ll continue the practice. Since the ruling class is far too busy to engage in it, I’ll …

I’ve always been struck by Pete Townsend’s line about authority and change in “Teenage Wasteland” on “Who’s Next.” He says: “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.” Meaning, I suppose, that the more things change, the more they stay the same. (Yes, Donald Trump is the once in 246 year exce…

To help celebrate my 20th birthday way back in 1977, milady, moi, and two other couples went out to dinner at Lubach’s, the ultra-pricey, five-star, long-gone eatery once located at the foot of Hawthorn Street at Harbor Drive, where currently corporate offices of Solar Turbines are housed in…

Today I’d like to take a page from Coronado’s Eddie Pietrzak who chronicles past episodes with old friends. I choose to recall the life and times of a friend I grew up with near Boston. Let me explain. Quintin John Solio lived next door to me for the first 19 years of my life. We bonded as b…

The latest and hopefully last of Donald Trump’s gifts to the Democratic Party was the resounding loss of his favored candidate in Georgia’s U.S. Senate runoff election. Raphael Warnock defeated former NFL and college football star Hershel Walker by a convincing margin in spite of Mr. Trump’s…

As I walk the sidewalks in town, I find a common theme. People are smiling, shopping, and enjoying a Christmas latte taking in the holiday spirit that is Coronado. Little do they know I am tiptoeing behind them wearing a green suit and a dastardly grin rolling my eyes at the horror that is C…

There are great moments in presidential speeches and presidential history. Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural speech comes to mind, as does his Gettysburg Address. So does FDR’s summation of December 7, 1941 as “a day that will live in infamy.”

Long past time. Stop the wear and tear on Coronado citizens repeatedly forced to attend fruitless meetings, and to work at circulating endless petitions to block threats by Port tenants to impose insulting and inappropriate developments on this island. Enough. Our city council has dilly dall…

Would the gentleman (Ken?) on his bike and the woman in a golf cart who aided me during my accident please stop by so I can properly thank them? He called 911 and she called my daughter. This was on Friday, November 18, 2022. They know where I live.

Things are looking up under President Biden and his colleagues. For one thing, it looks as if inflation is being curbed due to the raising of interest rates. Secondly, the GDP increased by 2.8 percent. It also seems that gas prices are going down. Unemployment is low and, according to my cou…

Recently I was saddened to learn that longtime Coronado resident CAPT William “Buck” Rogers (1924-2022) had entered into rest. But at the same time I was heartened to hear he’d lived to reach the ripe age of 98. Would that we could all have such a run. When CAPT Rogers was Commanding Officer…

I read in the last Armed Forces Dispatch that the U.S. is “committed to Taiwan’s defense.” Remember the three year Korean War ending in an armistice dividing that country and its people because we didn’t finish the job and chase three million Chinese back across the the Yalu River? 36,516 Am…
