Dear Readers,

November's election for mayor and council took a very unexpected -- and interesting -- turn Thursday when former county supervisor Dave Potter announced he'd be a candidate for mayor. Mary Schley reports.

We all know things are a little odd down in Big Sur sometimes. How odd? Turns out you can annoy people just by giving their street a name. Chris Counts has that one.

The pipeline that may carry our source for drought-proof water is about to take a big step forward -- but a major highway will have to close for a while to accommodate it. Kelly Nix has the details.

Congressman Jimmy Panetta made a surprise visit to the Korean DMZ last weekend. A scenic icon at the Mouth of the Valley has been given a new life. The city's payroll reached new heights last year -- especially where overtime was concerned. Some major 'strategic planning' is underway for the city, with many people participating. A big medical clinic has opened at Ryan Ranch. His former colleagues are mourning the passing of a much admired police chief. A shuttle to a very popular beach is getting rave reviews. We have a year-end wrap-up for Carmel High's sports teams. And my editorial calls for some new ground rules for historic preservation.

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.
