        of The Carmel Pine Cone

May 4 - 10, 2018

Dear Readers,

Home mail delivery was instituted in Carmel at the turn of the millennium after a lone activist demanded it, but now the taxpayer-funded delivery service may be coming to an end, except for people who really need it. Mary Schley reports.

A plan for lower-priced housing at the Mouth of the Valley may have lots of supporters among working people, but plenty of other residents hate the idea, and this week a judge sided with the opponents. Chris Counts has that one.

Monterey County has joined a lawsuit against President Trump to try to stop a citizenship question from being added to the 2020 census. Kelly Nix has the details.

A kayaker who hoped to make it all the way to Hawaii had to be rescued Tuesday shortly after he left Monterey Bay. Assemblyman Mark Stone is trying to get the California legislature to approve a law requiring plastic bottles for beverages to have stay-on caps. The city council approved a new house for Guadalupe Street despite vehement opposition from a neighbor. Seven Eagle Scouts from Carmel Valley were recognized at a ceremony Sunday. A community meeting has been scheduled to give drivers the chance to sound off about the construction at Highway 1 and Rio Road. And my editorial says the dispute on Guadalupe Street reminds us the importance of applying zoning and building rules uniformly, and not based on the whims of neighbors.

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.
