The Monterey Herald is our competitor, but it's also an
important and historic community institution that's been
going through tough times. Our lead story tonight is
about the Herald's latest round of cutbacks, and its
announcement this week that it will even vacate its
offices at Ryan Ranch. Kelly Nix reports.
Traffic slowdowns at Rocky Creek after a big landslide
two years ago will soon be a thing of the past, with the
completion of an $11 million bridge.
The owner of a new dog training center in Carmel Valley
is a county planning commissioner, so the project will
probably have an easier time getting permits.
Score another one for the cops: A Monterey County judge
ruled late last week that it's unconstitutional for one
local city to cut their pensions.
A hiker who thought it seemed like a great idea to climb
boulders next to a waterfall paid the price when he fell
and broke numerous bones and had to be airlifted out.
The big celebrity wedding at Ventana next weekend has an
almost complete cloak of secrecy around it. A woman who
loved knitting left an astonishing amount of yarn at her
house when she died. And my editorial has a few choice
words to say about a local corporation that actually
deserves some criticism.
