Dear Readers,

This week's election brought one result that was a surprise — Mary Adams' big victory over Dave Potter — and another that was foreseen by practically everybody: Jimmy Panetta's first place finish and probably insurmountable lead in the primary for U.S. Congress. Kelly Nix has the details.

A lengthy public hearing and unanimous decision by the city council on updated beach fire regulations were all rendered null and void this week after it was discovered the hearing was held without proper public notice. Kelly has that one, too.

A celebration was held Monday in honor of a major public works project that involved tearing something down. Chris Counts has that one.

The county planning commission OK'd an affordable housing development in Pebble Beach Wednesday despite strong opposition from an adjacent neighborhood. That story is also reported by Kelly Nix.

A new lawsuit claims that the seller of a house in Monterey hid the fact it was the scene of a murder when he sold it 16 years ago. Yet another planned housing project with an affordable component has its EIR out for public review. A doctor at Community Hospital is hoping that a new law on physician-assisted suicide will open up a whole new conversation about the end of life. A renowned local composer whose works were familiar to patrons of musical theater has died. And my editorial warns about the possibility of an epidemic of highly negative campaigns -- like the one we just saw.

As always, I am available to respond to questions, comments or concerns, and to offer advice about how best to read our newspaper on your computer, smartphone or iPad.
