The coastal commission has been asked to save wood fires on Carmel Beach — for the benefit of visitors. Kelly Nix has the details.

A box of abandoned kittens was found on Jacks Peak last Friday, and the SPCA says it intends to find out who the culprit was. Kelly Nix reports that one, too.

A group that supports Sunset Center is calling it quits because so many performers don’t take breaks. A new operator will have to be found for the city’s farmers market. Verizon claims it was illegally denied a permit for additional cell towers in town. Esalen has filed a lawsuit over the business it said it lost when a Highway 1 bridge was closed. One local church is welcoming parishioners with four legs. Community hospital has new equipment that shows what a good heart you have. There’s renewed enthusiasm and vitality at an annual surfing competition. A local middle schooler spent the first nine days of summer vacation flying a glider to Maine. And my editorial says hooray for the Supreme Court and its decision this week to make it a little easier to get a building permit.
