        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

Sept. 28 - Oct. 4, 2018

Dear Readers,

The mystery well at September Ranch is a mystery no more. A representative of the partnership that bought the ranch in February confirms that they're going ahead with an already-approved plan to build houses there, and the well is to help supply the houses with water. Chris Counts reports.

All the construction chaos on Ocean Avenue will soon come to an end, city officials promise. And they say it'll all be worth it, too. Mary Schley has that one.

If your dog is looking for a house that will more than keep up with the Joneses, a local architecture firm and the SPCA have the answer. And they have one for cats, too. Kelly Nix has the lowdown -- and we have some really cool pictures.

The city council postponed a closed session this week that was planned to deal with the aftermath of a public records lawsuit. A Monterey kindergartner had a scary encounter with a hawk that was apparently after her playground snack. The six candidates in the upcoming election are weighing in on what they think the city's budget priorities should be -- increases and cutbacks. David Fink says he'll be pulling his restaurant and office out of Carmel Plaza. Construction of an oceanfront hotel in Sand City has stalled while the owner tries to line up new financing. Congressman Jimmy Panetta doesn't like President Trump's plan to limit green cards for immigrants who take public benefits. Our latest edition of "Healthy Lifestyles" focuses on the unique health problems of seniors. And my editorial says some recent close encounters show that there are limits to having a natural lifestyle.
