A preview of the January 3, 2014,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

January 3 - 9, 2014

Dear Readers,

County planners have released their environmental analysis of the hotly contested canine recreation center in Carmel Valley, including their reasons why it doesn't need an EIR. Chris Counts has that story.

So far, the upcoming municipal election is shaping up to be a rather dull affair, with only one candidate stepping up to challenge the incumbents. Mary Schley has that one.

Last year was an unusually dry one on the Monterey Peninsula, but you may be surprised to hear just how dry it was. Kelly Nix reports.

Some prominent citizens are stepping up to demand protection of a Pebble Beach house built in 1958, but which they say is "historic." A fisherman drowned in Big Sur Saturday when a wave knocked him off a rock. 17 Mile Drive has been named the priciest toll road in the nation by a website that claims to know about such things. And my editorial takes note of an important milestone in the history of this newspaper.

We are very proud of our newspaper, and we sincerely thank you for supporting it. As always, I am available to respond to your questions, comments or concerns about our content, and to offer advice about how best to read it on your computer, smartphone or iPad.
