A preview of the August 3, 2018,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

Aug. 3 - 9, 2018

Dear Readers,

One of the town's most bizarre criminal cases is heading towards a trial, now that a judge has decided there's reason to believe a motorist purposely hit a pedestrian -- twice. And the guy who was allegedly hit says the whole episode was a hate crime. Mary Schley reports.

The owners of the infamously decrepit Jeffers cottage are asking the council to give them permission to tear it down. Mary Schley has that one, too.

Fifteen years after taxpayers put up millions to buy it, state parks is finally talking about when the public might be able to access Pt. Lobos Ranch. Chris Counts has the scoop.

Charges have been filed in the teen DUI crash last month that killed a young girl and injured a woman. With 3 months to go until election day, contributions are coming in for some of the candidates for mayor and city council. A car was destroyed by fire on Lincoln Street Wednesday and nobody knows why. The P.G. city council has issued a sharp rebuttal to county grand jury charges that it mishandled a plan for a luxury hotel. The Monterey Bay Aquarium needs your help naming a baby penguin. And my editorial says that the chilly weather we've been having provides a perfect opportunity for us to come to the rescue of our fellow man.

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.
