A preview of the February 1, 2019,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

February 1 - 7, 2019

Dear Readers,

Carmel’s first street vendor set up last Friday just off Ocean Avenue, and the welcome she got from some of the nearby businesses wasn’t exactly what you’d call friendly. Mary Schley reports.

The city council got an earful of suggestions Monday about how to hire a new city attorney — input Mayor Dave Potter said was definitely welcome. Mary Schley has that one, too.

If you’re planning to tour the Pt. Sur Lighthouse, you’re going to have to wait awhile (as in, at least a year). Chris Counts explains why.

Some of the inns sued for violating the ADA on their websites have settled the claims, while others say they’ll fight them. The first evaluation round for people who want to be curator of Flanders mansion will take place behind closed doors Monday. A Pebble Beach homeowner is suing PG&E over a power surge. A former NFL star has been named head of All Saints School, Carmel High will also soon have a new principal, and the Carmel city clerk is resigning because of health reasons. Monterey Peninsula home prices are still rising, even though the number of homes sold has declined sharply (check the real estate section for that one). The P.B. Co. is making grand plans to celebrate its centennial. And, speaking of Pebble Beach, the AT&T Pro-Am gets underway this week, and we have a colorful special section with all the details you need to attend or watch on TV, and even what to do if you don’t plan to do either. And my editorial says racism can be found everywhere — if you look hard enough.
