Bridge Work to Begin Sunday, Will Close Lanes at Night

coronado home
One lane on each side of the San Diego-Coronado Bridge will be closed nightly beginning Sunday to replace machinery and barriers that separate inbound and outbound traffic, officials with the state Department of Transportation said.  Here's the details: Caltrans' work will be performed between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays and is expected to take up to two weeks to complete. The work is taking place at night because of high traffic during the day. No work will take place Aug. 5 or 6. The closure also will affect Interstate 5. Northbound ramps to and from the bridge, as well as the connector from the bridge to Cesar Chavez Parkway/Logan Avenue will be closed and detours posted. The new machine is like the one used on Interstate 15, so they can b

City Steps Up Enforcement of Leasing Rules

coronado home
Coronado is cracking down on property owners who offer short-term rentals. People who lease their homes or condominiums for less than 26 days face hefty fines, up to $2,500 per day, according to City Manager Blair King. The city has brought court actions in two incidents. One owner was blocked from leasing on a short-term basis by a temporary restraining order. The other owners signed an agreement stating that they would comply with the ordinance in the future. If either reneges, they could be taken back to court and face penalties, Assistant City Manager Thomas Ritter said. Both situations came to the city’s attention because neighbors complained, he added.  The short-term nature of the stays can be hard on residents and businesses alike, King said. “It’s a

Root 75 Design Shop Plants Itself on Orange

coronado home
Kristy Pierre and Katherine Farley are proud of their roots. Root 75, their new floral design and home décor business, takes its name from a play on words. The moniker notes the literal roots that support their blooms, as well as Route 75, the official name for the stretch of road that includes their location, Orange Avenue. Most importantly to the partners, the business name connotes the roots the pair have established in Coronado. Farley was born at Sharp Coronado Hospital.  “I’ve been here since minute one,” she laughs. She met Pierre in fourth grade at Central Elementary, now known as Village Elementary. “We were that typical Arizona family,” Pierre said, “who came to Coronado for the summers and then moved here.” Now married with two children, Pierre’s

As Mayor Randy Voepel said, "in Santee they'll line dance to anything," and Thursday evening it was some cool blues. The highlight of the Santee Summer Concert Series, the Blues & BBQ concert, was the most attended of any summer concert the City of Santee has put on. At least 2,000 people came through Town Center Park to see the show. The Bill Magee Blues Band, Ben Owens and Len Rainey & the Midnight Players kept Santee's toes-a-tappin' throughout the night (see band videos in the media box). The line for Pinnacle Peak barbecue stretched a good city block for most of the night. If the city was wondering how a food vendor would fare at a Summer Concert, they have a resounding answer. It was the perfect day for the event. The green grass, some of which lied
