Dear Readers,

Some very interesting details have emerged about the sale of the donated oceanfront mansion in Pebble Beach, including how the $21 million price was determined and what the Community Foundation will do with the proceeds. Kelly Nix reports.

One of Monterey County’s most valuable properties, Laguna Seca, will have new management next year — a move that could affect the pocketbook of every county taxpayer. Mary Schley has that one.

A business group says prospects for an adequate local water supply have been “destroyed” by one water official’s position that it’s not needed. Kelly Nix has the details.

A tourist from India drowned at Garrapata Beach last weekend while trying to take a selfie. Historic consultants are taking pro and con sides on changes to Mid Valley Center. A 1972 building in downtown Carmel has been declared historic — again. A Pebble Beach man has been arrested on gun and drugs charges. Long-planned changes at Carmel PD look like they’ll finally happen. A popular hiking trail in Big Sur will soon re-open, but without the hippie hot tubs. A student at CMS got an amazing reaction when she returned to school after cancer treatment. Yet another local city is planning an increase in the sales tax. Property owners in P.G.’s Asilomar neighborhood are making a stink about strict new rules from the coastal commission on the size of their homes. We have another edition of our colorful Healthy Lifestyles magazine for you, this time looking at ways to improve all aspects of your health and well being. And my editorial says that raising taxes on the rich is not as easy as it may seem.
