A preview of the December 14, 2012,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

December 21 - 27, 2012

Dear Readers,

The bizarre, twisted saga of the local water supply took another inexplicable turn this week when a complete stranger showed up at a city council meeting and announced that he's now in charge of Nader Agha's proposed desal plant. Kelly Nix reports.

A downtown jewelry store was hit with an organized theft of a $20,000 Rolex Saturday. Mary Schley has that one.

A perfectly normal-looking house on Ocean Avenue has to be torn down because of mold, its owners say. Mary has the yucky details. And she reports about another homeowner who wants the city's ban on short-term rentals overturned.

A $1.2 million lawsuit against a Carmel Valley resort has been tossed out by a judge. A pedestrian was run down on a major street in Pacific Grove Tuesday. A Big Sur woman is thanking a mystery doctor for her survival after a major car crash. Mayor Jason Burnett and his wife, Mel, are back from Washington D.C., where they attended a White House Christmas party that turned out to be a somber affair. Carmel's most famous father died last week. And my editorial decries the end of majority rule, at least in Carmel.
