Dear Readers,

The landslide that covered Highway 1 near the San Luis Obispo County line Saturday is being called the biggest slide in California history. Whether it's No. 1 or not, it's big enough that there can be no doubt that it's going to take a very long time to clear. Kelly Nix reports.

One of the Monterey Peninsula's most congested intersections is about to enter a new era when its traffic signal is removed -- permanently. Kelly Nix has that one, too.

When the city council held a public workshop on the proposed $23 million budget for next year, a very small item dominated the discussion. Mary Schley has the details.

Monterey Airport may get new nonstop service to Dallas, if civic groups help underwrite the flights. A weird sequence of events last Friday led to an even weirder series of car crashes. The Big Sur Land Trust has started opening up access to a preserve that's been heavily damaged by fire and flood. All the water in Lake San Antonio is putting smiles on the faces of people attending a unique festival at the lake this weekend. And my editorial says the problems with the highway through Big Sur are also an opportunity -- one you won't want to let get away.
