October 5 - 11, 2018

Dear Readers,

During a tumultuous meeting at city hall Tuesday, the council announced it had decided not to appeal a judge's order that it release documents about attorney Glen Mozingo's qualifications. Mary Schley reports.

Cal Am is spending large sums to defeat Measure J, while the pro-takeover crowd has revealed that some of its funding is coming from the backer of a competing desal plant. Kelly Nix has that one.

A Carmel Valley woman is recovering after a masked intruder bit and scratched her Monday when she tried to protect her dogs. Mary Schley has that story, too.

The latest proposal to deal with crowds at Point Lobos is to require reservations and make people use shuttles to get there. Not sure what really happens to things you put in the recycling? We have the answers -- including some surprising ones. PG&E is getting ready to build a new gas main through town, even as a major storm drain improvement project is nearing completion. A man has been convicted of murdering a woman and burying her body in a vacant lot at the Mouth of the Valley. If you've ever thought about taking a mini horse to the library, some new rules approved by the city may interest you. Dave Potter and Steve Dallas have been campaigning hard in the run-up to the Nov. 6 election, along with disclosing how much money they've raised and spent. The CHS and Stevenson golf teams are getting ready for a very competitive season. Our latest edition of "In Your Dreams" has the fascinating stories of some of the Monterey Peninsula's most unusual homes — including one that may have been the second house built in Carmel. And my editorial points out that not one of the arguments in favor of Measure J makes any sense.
