A preview of the August 16, 2019,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

August 16 - 22, 2019

Dear Readers,

If sparks happen to fly from one of the classic cars cruising around Pebble Beach this week, the fire danger will be much less, thanks to a new brush-clearing program in the forest. Kelly Nix reports.

Somewhere on Carmel Point — the location has not been disclosed — native American bones have been unearthed during construction of a fire pit. Chris Counts has the story.

If jewelry stores, art galleries and souvenir shops are strictly limited in town, why not lemonade stands? Mary Schley has that one.

An orphaned snowy plover that weighed almost nothing when he was brought to the SPCA is just about ready to be returned to the wild. A broken water main created an impressive new pond on the beach. “Permit denied” was the answer from the planning commission for another one of those icky skincare shops. A foundation to honor the memory of a Carmel teen who died at Garrapata Beach in January has already accomplished something big. Auto shop is proving to be a popular class at Carmel High. The monks at the New Calmaldoli Heritage have a shiny new access road to use. “The Carmel Program” may sound like it would be something tasteful and friendly, but can you believe it’s designed to blow things up? Stevenson School is introducing 70-minute classes for its high school students. Four veteran caddies had the golf trip of a lifetime when they played the historic courses of Scotland. We have another amazing special section for you about all the can’t-miss Car Week happenings still on the way. And my editorial asks, When one side is waaaaaaay behind, is that the time to ask them to start compromising?
