A preview of the February 23, 2018,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

Feb. 23 - March 1, 2018

Dear Readers,

One of Carmel Valley's most prominent and scenic properties has changed hands. Who are the new owners and what do they plan to do with the land? Kelly Nix reports.

City attorney Glen Mozingo says a legal report detailing allegations against Steve Dallas will be finished Friday and made public next week. Mary Schley has that one.

Carmel's own Brita Sigourney won a bronze medal at the Winter Olympics in Korea Tuesday. Chris Counts reports how she says she did it, and how she and her family reacted.

Long-time Monterey County District Attorney Dean Flippo will be retiring at the end of his current term, and one of his deputies has already announced her candidacy to replace him. The city's trash cans may get a re-do to encourage recycling. Numerous trees at the north end of Carmel Beach are slated for removal. Speaking of trees, another lawsuit has been filed alleging that a homeowner has let his landscaping become overgrown as a way of annoying his neighbor. The battle over a fee charged by the water district is headed to a San Jose appeals court. A former city clerk is seeking help with fundraising so she can have a kidney transplant. And my editorial recommends that the trees being removed at Carmel Beach be followed with similar foliage reductions in several parts of town.

As always, I invite you to send me any questions, comments or concerns about our newspaper, and to contact me if you need help making the most of it on your computer, smartphone or tablet.
