While the Monterey Peninsula fills with classic cars,
the news keeps piling up, too.
Another thing that's piling up: Legal bills at city
hall. But information about what they're for is
extremely scarce. Mary Schley has that story.
The California Public Utilities Commission held a public
hearing at Sunset Center this week, but was what the
public had to say more than the usual, unhelpful
complaints? Kelly Nix has that one.
The Monterey Airport will finally have a chance to make
essential safety improvements, thanks to a settlement in
a lawsuit brought by environmental activists. But the
settlement is very costly. Kelly Nix has that one, too.
A tree fell across Highway 68 Wednesday morning and
landed right on a car. No one was hurt, thank goodness,
and (despite all odds) the car also didn't happen to be
a priceless antique. A bizarre lawsuit is pitting one
local theater group against another. Most of the local
races on the November ballot have drawn only one
candidate. An attempted murder suspect was nabbed
Tuesday right downtown. We have another impressive
special section about all the classic car events coming
up. And my editorial explains why, despite the fact that
all those cars are wonderful, it's OK to love the car
you already have.
