A preview of the November 11, 2016,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

November 11 - 17, 2016

Dear Readers,

Jimmy Panetta was elected in a landslide Tuesday and is obviously excited about beginning his career in Congress. But the Washington he's headed to is a very different place than he thought it would be. Meanwhile, his worthy opponent, former NPS professor Casey Lucius, isn't sure what she'll do next. Kelly Nix has the story.

We have a heap of other election results: On the proposed admissions tax, the ban on fracking, for mayor and council of Pacific Grove, and taxes for transportation and parks. Kelly Nix and Chris Counts have those bylines.

They lost their dog in a fire last week, and now, even as they prepare to rebuild, a family on San Carlos Street is asking for the community's help locating their cat. Mary Schley has that one.

The new bell for the Memorial Arch on Ocean Avenue is ready to be unveiled, though it hasn't been without controversy. Mary Schley has the details.

The street dance on Centennial Day was such a hit, it may become an annual event. It's OK to use marijuana even without a medical reason now that California voters approved the idea Tuesday, but in Monterey County it's still not legal to buy any. The Pebble Beach Company has agreed to minor modifications to its affordable housing project. A motorcyclist who was injured in Big Sur has lost his lawsuit claiming Caltrans was responsible. And my editorial explains where you should go if you're upset about Donald Trump being elected president.

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.
