A preview of the September 18, 2015,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

September 18 - 24, 2015

Dear Readers,

Security will be stepped up around the Carmel Mission next week as crowds gather to honor -- and, perhaps, to protest -- the canonization of Junipero Serra. Mary Schley has that story.

Students, teachers and a procession of jazz musicians honored the memory Thursday of Carmel Middle School music teacher Nancy Fowler, who died in a car crash last week. Mary Schley has that one, too.

The proposed canine center in Carmel Valley is headed to the Monterey County Board of Supervisors, where strong feelings pro and con will be expressed all over again. Chris Count reports.

The pot shop proposed for the Mouth of the Valley has already opened, county officials said, even as they announced it had to close. Chris Counts has the details.

The private racing company that wanted to take over Laguna Seca has decided not to make a bid after all. The city council is investing $150,000 just to get a start on plans for additional upgrades and changes at Sunset Center. A lawsuit has been filed because it took 19 years for law enforcement to identify a body that washed up on Asilomar Beach. We have a special section for you featuring some of the outstanding women in local business, and how they got that way. And my editorial says that if somebody is going to be stuck with the bill for preserving a home it Pebble Beach, it shouldn't be the owner.

Everyone at The Pine Cone is grateful for the support of our readers. As always, I am at your service to respond to questions, comments or concerns, and to offer advice about how best to read our newspaper on your computer, smartphone or iPad.
