Last year, after a bullet was found in the Coronado High School Football field, many of us could not help but wonder – could it happen here? Certainly not in our community. The Coronado Police Department did a thorough investigation without concerns, calming fears for many. But not for all, especially those most vulnerable: students. Indeed, the Coronado High School Young Dems students told us that gun violence was one of their main concerns.
Last month, on a cold, drizzly day, club members joined community members to celebrate Coronado’s Arbor Day by planting trees in designated areas around the city. Our team proudly planted a Hong Kong Orchid tree, which now beautifies our city streets, but most importantly, is a reminder that trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2).
