        of The Carmel Pine Cone

June 16 - 22, 2017

Dear Readers,

After being managed by the city since its inception, the historic Forest Theater will soon be run by the same nonprofit that operates Sunset Center. Mary Schley reports.

U.S. Rep. Jimmy Panetta was in right field for Thursday's Republicans vs. Democrats congressional baseball game in Washington, D.C. Kelly Nix reports on the game, and on Panetta's experiences at baseball practice during Wednesday's shooting. 

For decades, scanners have been an important source of information about crimes and other police calls for the public and the media. But with the switch to digital radios, police communications will suddenly be off limits. Mary Schley has the details.

A retail marijuana business proposed for the Mouth of the Valley has been approved by Monterey County. Chris Counts has that one. 

City manager Chip Rerig has filled several key vacancies at city hall. The final version of next year's municipal budget has been okayed, including money for the chamber of commerce. Police say they've caught the thief who ripped off the Coach store on Ocean Ave., and have new leads about whoever stole a bunch of Rolexes in Pebble Beach. Another dog park has been proposed for Carmel Valley. A surprising new type of gardening is becoming popular with people who have poor soil or limited space. And my editorial says if you're looking for a lesson in immigration and employment, all you have to do is visit the parking lot of a local megastore.
