A preview of the March 9, 2018, edition
        of The Carmel Pine Cone

March 9 - 15, 2018

Dear Readers,

The investigation into the behavior of Mayor Steve Dallas is finished. Mary Schley has the results, the city council's decision about what's to be done next, and the details of a bizarre conspiracy against the mayor the city attorney says was also uncovered.

PG&E wants to spend months digging up streets at the north end of town for a new gas pipeline, but the council isn't exactly thrilled with the idea. Mary Schley has that story, too.

A Fresno man who stands accused by the California attorney general of misusing funds from two charities has filed a $20 million libel suit against the Pine Cone for reporting what the AG said. We have the details.

Jimmy Panetta says he agrees with other Democrats who sharply criticized the U.S. Department of Justice's legal action against California's sanctuary policies. Vacation rental companies have been kicked out of the convention and visitors bureau, and they're not happy about it. The council sided with the builder of a new home and turned back privacy concerns of a neighbor. Another well known downtown restaurant will soon close. Diane Wolcott, who gained fame through her whimsical paintings of nuns, has passed away and we have an obit. The CHS boys volleyball team is looking forward to a stellar season. And my editorial says voters should decide if Steve Dallas is to remain Carmel's mayor.

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.
