Details are finally coming out about the unprecedented
search by police of a city employee's house two weeks
ago -- including why they did it and what they were
looking for. Mary Schley has that story.
A geyser suddenly erupted on Carmel Valley Road last
Friday, but not because of geologic forces deep inside
the earth. A lawn mower knocked over a fire hydrant.
Chris Counts has that one.
The water management district bitterly denounced a
lawsuit filed by taxpayers to stop a user fee that's
being collected from property owners. The group filing
the suit "broke its word," the water district says.
Kelly Nix has that one.
A woman missing for a month turned up in not a very
pretty state in a wrecked car off Highway 1 in Big Sur.
Pets being "adopted out" to caring families around the
Monterey Peninsula turned out to be part of a scam, the
SPCA says. A proposed event center for downtown Carmel
has water, though it's really hard to figure out how. A
shrimp even a Benihana chef wouldn't be able to handle
is on display at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. And my
editorial says Sean Parker and the coastal commission
did exactly what anybody would expect them to do when it
came to the controversy over his extravagant wedding.
