        of The Carmel Pine Cone

May 9 - 15, 2014

Dear Readers,

City council members had lots of questions for PG&E this week -- especially about why natural gas leaked for so long after workers punctured a main and blew up a house in March. Mary Schley reports.

The Forest Theater should be reopened as quickly as possible, even if some of the things that need fixing there have to be put off for a while, the council decided Tuesday. Mary has that one, too.

Cops have grabbed two suspects in the recent rash of burglaries in town, and one of them is a young man who lives here. Mary reports that story, as well.

With election day just a few weeks away, the controversy over Measure O is heating up, along with the two vacancies for judges. Kelly Nix has been on those beats and has two reports.

The condor that was the first to be born back in the wild in Big Sur had to be captured and is undergoing treatment for lead poisoning. The Carmel farmer's market is moving to Devendorf Park -- perhaps for good. Another sad case of animal neglect in a trash-filled home has been discovered by the SPCA. A recent grad from Carmel High is trying to change the world, one homemade bracelet at a time. And my editorial urges you to vote "No" on Measure O, for many of the same reasons various Cal Am takeover initiatives have been rejected by this community many times before.
