A preview of the October 13, 2017,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

October 13 - 19, 2017

Dear Readers,

The Monterey County Sheriff says he doesn't like the state's new sanctuary law because it could result in dangerous criminals being put on the street. But he intends to comply with it anyway. Kelly Nix reports.

A woman who says she was duped into buying expensive products at one of those annoying skincare shops on Ocean Avenue took the shop to court to try to get her money back. And it worked. Mary Schley has that one.

With disaster hitting the Napa Valley, hotels in the Monterey Peninsula are filling up. Kelly Nix explains why.

The new bridge over Pfeiffer Creek in Big Sur is all set for its ribbon-cutting, but Cachagua residents will have some new road closures to deal with. A hiker was rescued in Arroyo Seco thanks to the intuition of a volunteer. A Pebble Beach woman accused of being a scam artist is facing felony charges over bad checks. The planning commission has asked for yet more changes in the design of the condo David Fink wants to build on top of Cantinetta Luca restaurant. Students at a local school really got up close and personal with a sea otter -- and it happened on the playground. We have special coverage of some of the unusual films on tap at the upcoming Carmel Film Festival. And my editorial says property rights have their limits -- sometimes the only question about a development project is whether it's good for the community.

As always, I invite you to send me any questions, comments or concerns about our newspaper, and to contact me if you need help making the most of it on your computer, smartphone or tablet.
