A preview of the March 27, 2015,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

March 27 - April 2, 2015

Dear Readers,

The Monterey Peninsula is the classic car capital of the world, and Carmel's events have become a highlight of the calendar every August, but a new system of permit fees imposed by the city is putting some of the most high-profile events in jeopardy. Mary Schley reports.

A Monterey County judge ruled this week that the civil grand jury can have access to personnel files for city employees, but only if it convinces her it really needs them. Mary has that story, too.

David Bernahl settled one of the suits against his culinary empire, even as he faces several more. Kelly Nix has that one.

The school district has picked a new superintendent. Officials in Big Sur are trying to figure out how to deal with a major waste problem — and we don't mean the kind you put in your garbage can. The number of buildable parcels in Carmel Valley is suddenly a hot topic again. A who-knew-that-was-even-possible court battle is looming over a county ordinance that limits each property owner to just four roosters. And my editorial takes another look at the privacy you don't have -- unless you work for the City of Carmel. 

Thank you for your interest in our newspaper. As always, I am available to respond to your questions, comments or concerns, and to offer advice about how best to read The Pine Cone on your computer, smartphone or iPad.
