A preview of the December 14, 2018,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

December 14 - 20, 2018

Dear Readers,

The Monterey County Sheriff has released data showing that the number of convicted criminals detained by his office for ICE has declined sharply this year, thanks to sanctuary laws. Kelly Nix reports.

A man with a rifle scared the daylights out of docents at Pt. Sur when they arrived for work Sunday morning. The man fled, but was tracked with a drone and captured. Chris Counts has that one.

The city council's review of Glen Mozingo's contract has been delayed. Will he be retained by the new administration? Mary Schley has the story.

The Pebble Beach company's affordable housing project will receive its new residents starting next month. A Carmel P.D. officer is being honored for not hesitating to help the victims of a multiple stabbing in Carmel Valley. The water district says it hasn't changed its mind about Cal Am's desal plant. A "lost trail" in Big Sur has reopened, thanks to the efforts of volunteers. The driver in a fatal crash last summer says it's not her fault another driver was seriously injured. One of Carmel's most distinguished citizens has passed away. Local firefighters have delivered a big stash of donations to the victims of the Butte County fire. Clint Eastwood's latest movie, "The Mule," is getting excellent reviews, and opens locally this weekend. And my editorial says the success of the Pebble Beach affordable project has some important lessons for us all.
