A preview of the May 24, 2019, edition
        of The Carmel Pine Cone

May 24 - May 30, 2019

Dear Readers,

A long-awaited thumbs-up-or-thumbs-down study on the feasibility of a Cal Am takeover might have to be delayed past the August deadline. Kelly Nix reports.

A hiker who was in desperate straits after getting lost in Big Sur and had to leave his dog behind says he’s determined to be reunited with the pooch. Chris Counts has that one.

Last weekend’s rainstorm was so unexpected, it had plein air painters working in their cars. Chris Counts has that story, too.

Dueling appeals — one pro, one con — have been filed over permits for the desal plant. The board of supervisors has OK’d an engineering firm’s relocation to a new site, despite warnings of blight and noise. Under the heading of “tell me something I don’t already know,” a county visitors group says tourism is way up. A Carmel Valley music, theatre and dance school wants to add faculty housing. There was a drive-by shooting last week not far from a Pacific Grove elementary school. Numerous streets in town will soon get a $1 million facelift. Dennis Taylor reports on the amazing golfers you can find at one local high school. Would you believe a nudist colony once asked for permission to relocate to Carmel? In this week’s Morse Memoirs, the P.B. Co.’s founder explains why he sold the Hotel Del Monte to the Navy and explains what he did with the money. And my editorial says that with all the conflicting warnings bouncing around, it’s no wonder the public is confused about climate change.
