A preview of the June 22, 2018, edition
        of The Carmel Pine Cone

June 22 - 28, 2018

Dear Readers,

At a time when many residents have already had it up to here with construction-related traffic jams, PG&E is announcing plans to start construction of a new gas pipeline -- in August. Mary Schley reports.

Congressman Jimmy Panetta says the solution to the crisis over separated families at the border is not to detain the kids or their parents. Chris Counts has that one.

It's an ideal -- if not unique -- time to visit the Carmel Mission, with the summer sun causing an early morning celestial show, and with a succulent putting on its own long-awaited display. Mary Schley has the details.

The county is planning to institute a more accessible way to make complaints about short-term rentals. Two significant development projects in town are meeting approval from the planning commission. One of the city's most historic homes has a colorful past, though not quite as colorful as you may have heard. An internationally famous local sculptor is mourning the passing of someone who was at least as well known as he was. And my editorial explains why some California politicians aren't exactly in a hurry to crack down on crime.

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.
