A preview of the September 7, 2018,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

September 7 - 13, 2018

Dear Readers,

In November, Monterey Peninsula voters will be asked whether they want to start the process of turning Cal Am into a government-owned entity. But they won't be promised the takeover will save money. Kelly Nix reports.

On Carmel Point, a long-forgotten subdivision is raising fears for the future of a majestic Monterey cypress. Chris Counts has the story.

In the aftermath of a tragic DUI crash on Carmel Valley Road, an injured woman has sued the young driver she blames for the accident. Mary Schley has that one.

The estate of Pebble Beach Co. founder S.F.B. Morse has made large contributions to some of the country's best schools — almost 50 years after Morse's death. Despite opposition from anti-radiowave activists, the Pacific Grove City Council has OK'd a cell phone tower near P.G. high school. A gang of mail thieves has been captured in Carmel Valley. Divers from the Monterey County sheriff's department are helping with the search for victims of a boat crash on the Colorado River. Four candidates are vying for two seats on the Carmel school board. And my editorial says that expecting a riot when Joe Arpaio appears at the mouth of the valley next week may be a bit unrealistic. Here on the Monterey Peninsula, we're just not spry enough to break things very often.

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.
