A preview of the April 19, 2013,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

April 19 - 25, 2013

Dear Readers,

A man who's wanted in at least five counties can add Monterey to the list. This week in Big Sur, cops say he stole several cars, led them on a high-speed chase and caused a heap of other trouble. He's dangerous, and he's still on the run, they warn. Chris Counts has the story.

After more than 20 years of getting permits, the Pebble Beach company this week started moving earth in what it calls the final build-out in Del Monte Forest. Kelly Nix has that one.

A tiny shorebird federal officials classify as "threatened" is suddenly in the way of wells to supply water for the Peninsula's proposed desal plant. Kelly has that one, too.

The man who killed two women on Sloat Road two Sundays ago says he definitely wasn't DUI when the crash occurred. Mary Schley has the details.

Engineers and executives from Apple are finally welcome back at a landmark Carmel hotel. One of the people who wants to rent Flanders mansion is wondering what the city has done with his application. And my editorial makes the outrageous claim that, once in awhile, trees should yield to scenic views.
