A preview of the April 25, 2014,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

April 25 - May 1, 2014

Dear Readers,

The city's world-famous Forest Theater was padlocked Wednesday and will probably be shut for several months, city officials say, because it has major safety problems. Mary Schley has the story.

A former Carmel police officer pleaded guilty to several felonies this week and was sentenced to three years in prison. The things he admitted doing are quite shocking -- especially for a cop. Mary has that story, too

This summer will be a busy one at San Clemente Dam, as almost 200 people work to remove it. Kelly Nix reports.

An activist who formerly supported a public takeover of Cal Am has switched sides. Mayor Burnett and two council members officially took office Tuesday. A public hearing next week will look at some new ideas to solve the perennial parking problems downtown. The driver of a luxury SUV plowed straight into freshly laid concrete on Dolores Street last Thursday. Real estate prices climbed sharply during the first three months of the year. The whole town was abuzz this week over a swarm of bees that suddenly appeared in town.  A famous American composer has donated a private performance to a fundraiser for a local museum. We have a special section to help you plan your fabulous summer on the amazing Monterey Peninsula. And my editorial explains what really has to happen before Sand City gets its new beachfront hotel.
