A preview of the July 12, 2019, edition
        of The Carmel Pine Cone

July 12 - 18, 2019

Dear Readers,

The Carmel school district is considering monitoring students’ social media accounts for signs of dangerous behavior and other problems. But how much monitoring would be too much? Mary Schley reports.

The anti-Cal Am group that said it was all about a public takeover is also aggressively trying to stop construction of the desal plant. Kelly Nix has that one.

A multi-home compound proposed for Scenic Road by a wealthy developer from Monaco didn’t exactly get a warm welcome at the planning commission. Mary Schley has the details.

A protest banner targeting “overtourism” was hung from the Bixby Bridge last weekend. The Memorial Arch on Ocean Avenue has a whole new look now that some of the trees behind it have been removed. Despite earnest efforts to save it, the cat attacked by two dogs near a Pacific Grove school has died. An 18-year-old who lives on Dolores Street has been arrested for breaking into a neighbor’s home. A downtown bicycle shop has been given the OK to start guided tours. A group of rescued harbor seals can now call Pebble Beach home. Dozens of shootings by the county’s cops over the last 22 years have been detailed in a new report. The ‘mayor’ of Carmel Valley is being remembered for his innumerable volunteer efforts. We have a special section for you with all the highlights — including some real surprises — at this year’s Bach Festival, which gets underway Saturday. And my editorial apologizes for our utterly negligent approach to climate change all these years.
