Mayor Jason Burnett says the investigation of alleged
misconduct by city employees -- which resulted in so
many of them no longer being on the job -- is just about
finished, and he says it uncovered some serious stuff.
Mary Schley has the story.
Monterey Police made several arrests this week of people
with apparent links to the ongoing string of burglaries
in Carmel Valley. We have the details.
For the first time in at least four years, Highway 1 is
open all the way through Big Sur with no road work or
traffic delays. Chris Counts has that one.
Another city employee is leaving, and this time it's one
of the town's favorite cops. Elder financial abuse of a
Carmel couple has been alleged against two Monterey
attorneys. The water district says Cal Am's estimates of
coming rate increases are accurate. A new local history
museum is set to open in Carmel Valley. We have a
special section to help you get your Christmas shopping
under way (at local stores only, please). And my
editorial looks at what certainly will be the biggest
downside of Obamacare.
