A preview of the June 5, 2015, edition
        of The Carmel Pine Cone

June 5 - 11, 2015

Dear Readers,

You may have been saving water like crazy for what seems like your whole life, and our water shortage may not be any greater this year than the last 20, but because of drought conditions elsewhere, state regulators have handed down their mandate: We have to save eight percent more. Kelly Nix reports.

Another win for the owners of Dametra restaurant, who got yet another ruling from a judge that their landlord has to stop bothering them. Mary Schley has the story.

A Cal Am employee was (needless to say) shocked when he saw a baby crawling across Lobos Street Wednesday afternoon, with no parent in sight. Mary Schley tells what happened next.

Four downtown buildings sold for a ton of money this week. The mystery man who's been inundating the city with PRA requests is at it again, and we still haven't been able to identify him. The Pacific Grove city council opted not to make a bunch of petty objections to the Pebble Beach affordable housing project. A condor with a remarkable pedigree is fighting lead poisoning. A well known local painter is using her skills to capture a major demolition project. And my editorial adds the Public Records Act to a long list of state laws that can be manipulated by the few to thwart the will of the many.

Thank you for your interest in The Pine Cone. As always, I am available to respond to your questions, comments or concerns, and to offer advice about how best to read it on your computer, smartphone or iPad.
