Some stories can only happen in a small town, and this
is one of them: An outspoken Carmel resident practically
burst an artery over the fact that attractive girls in
skimpy clothing were used to help advertise a party at a
downtown restaurant. Mary Schley has the story.
About 50 Big Sur residents who've been cut off from
civilization for weeks will soon get their road back,
thanks to high explosives. Chris Counts has the details.
A Pebble Beach family trying to undo 30 years of silly
water district regulations is taking its fight to an
appeals court. Kelly Nix has that one.
Local residents are being asked to register their cell
phones so they can be notified of emergencies. Public
restrooms at the south end of Carmel Beach have been
talked about for years ... are they finally about to
happen? Valentine's Day is coming, and we have a lot of
suggestions for where to take your sweetie for dinner.
In the meantime, this year's AT&T Pro-Am is
underway, and our special section offers comprehensive
coverage, including your guide to attending or watching
on TV, and even what you should wear. Joe Livernois has
a look at the basics of being a Pro-Am fan, especially
what you're not allowed to do. And my editorial takes a
look at the wide-ranging implications of Phil
Mickelson's recent statement that high taxes might force
him to move away from California.
