A preview of the May 3, 2013, edition
        of The Carmel Pine Cone

May 3 - 9, 2013

Dear Readers,

A dispute over assets in a divorce has resulted in the lockout and shutdown of one of Carmel's most popular restaurants. Mary Schley has the details.

A Big Sur man with an apparent history of drug abuse stands accused of stabbing a cab driver to death in Monterey Wednesday. Chris Counts has that one.

Another pair of misguided backcountry hikers had to be rescued from Partington Ridge Friday. The rescue was costly but, once again, will have to be paid for by taxpayers. Chris also has that one.

The man who killed a bicyclist near Pt. Lobos six years ago is on the lam after another DUI arrest, his bail bondsman says. The downtown inn that was to be torn down and replaced with a much bigger hotel, only to be foreclosed on when the recession hit, has new owners who say they have no plans to demolish it. Bobcats are on the prowl in Mission Trail park. A south county property owner says he is concerned that military training flights are causing problems for nesting condors. And my editorial warns that you may be seriously misguided about who owns the money in your bank account.
