A preview of the August 2, 2013,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

August 2 - 8, 2013

Dear Readers,

An event which has been anticipated in our pages for the past two weeks -- and hoped for in the whole community for decades — came to fruition this week with the announcement of a new agreement to provide water for the Monterey Peninsula. Truly, it is a momentous development, and Kelly Nix has the details.

The economy may have been on its heels for six years, but the local real estate market has been recovering, and last week a home in Pebble Beach sold that matched the all-time record price for the county. I have that story.

A Carmel property owner who claimed her rights were violated when a home was approved next door has had her state and federal lawsuits dismissed. Mary Schley reports.

A search and rescue team from the sheriff's office was sent on the ultimate wild goose chase last week. A Big Sur resident sued Caltrans for not letting him get home from work. A beloved golf pro is being mourned at Cypress Point. Carmel's named cottages are the subject of a new Google map. And my editorial tries to take due notice of this week's unprecedented water agreement.
