A preview of the November 9, 2018,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

November 9 - 15, 2018

Dear Readers,

The results of Tuesday's election came as a big surprise to everyone. Not necessarily who won, but their overwhelming margins of victory. Mary Schley reports.

As expected, voters also approved a government takeover of Cal Am, and now comes the tricky part: Figuring out whether it's feasible to do so. Kelly Nix has that one.

An engineering firm that's been a pillar of the Big Sur community — and not only pillars, but driveways and water and electrical systems, too — is having big troubles finding a place to operate. Chris Counts has the details.

After Tuesday's election, Pacific Grove will not only have a new mayor and council, it will join Monterey and Carmel in enacting strict limits on short-term rentals. Speaking of P.G., one of its native sons failed in a bid to become governor of Maryland. A man who twice struck a pedestrian because of apparent road rage has been sentenced to jail. There was a serious motorcycle crash on Highway 1 at Ocean Avenue Thursday. It's been the usual applicant-vs.-neighbors drama at the planning commission lately, only more so. The Pebble Beach Company is opening a new visitor center at the Lodge. Carmel High's football team this year just might be the best ever. And my editorial says our coverage of the election for mayor and city council was a case of not seeing the big picture for the pixels.
