A preview of the January 24, 2020,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

January 24 - 30, 2020

Dear Readers,

After months of searching, CHP officers announced Thursday they had finally arrested someone for repeatedly damaging cars on Highway 101 with unnamed “projectiles.” Mary Schley has the story.

A new state law will try to get everyone to stop saying “at risk youth.” And they’re serious. Kelly Nix has that one.

If you’re ever feeling down and troubled, you might take some advice from the animals at the SPCA. Chris Counts explains why.

While the city grapples with its pension obligations, one of the major questions it faces is: How big are they? A health insurance embezzlement case involving a former city employee is headed to trial. The owners of a liquor store are suing the woman whose 2018 DUI crash killed her friend. Four robbers hit a prominent Peninsula pharmacy last week, and police are asking for the public’s help figuring out who they were. Plans are moving forward to put a “traffic calming” median in San Carlos Street. The planning commission gave a very favorable reception to a major new development project on Casanova Street, and they even liked another project on Fifth. Pacific Grove’s fabulous coastal trail may get an important new link. Elaine Hesser’s First Look feature offers some priceless tidbits from the (very) early career of Sue McCloud. Neal Hotelling’s history column fills in the details of Perry Newberry’s first years in Carmel. We have another edition of our Healthy Lifestyles magazine, and the cover alone is enough to make you want to get up and dance. And my editorial says two great thinkers of the 20th century (OK, one was a comedian) can teach us a lot about the evils of euphemisms.
