Dear Readers,

A $10,000 warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man who's accused of various local scams, including a phony rental on Guadalupe Street. But nobody knows where the scammer is. Mary Schley reports.

With tourism way down in Big Sur after winter damage along Highway 1, a plan for a summer shuttle service is well underway. Chris Counts has that one. 

The new roundabout near Community Hospital won't be finished until Car Week, officials say, but at least one of the benefits of the new traffic flow is already being felt. Kelly Nix has the story.

Congressman Jimmy Panetta and his staff say they've been inundated with constituent calls and comments since he took office in January, and President Donald Trump may be responsible. Kelly Nix has that one, too.

A website is offering convicts in two Salinas Valley prisons a chance to find pen pals, and it doesn't matter how serious their crimes were. The company that employed the bulldozer driver killed during last summer's Soberanes Fire has been hit with tax evasion charges. Two goats displaced by heavy rains this winter have found temporary homes. The Monterey County pops orchestra is finding new ways to bring classical music to Hispanic communities. And my editorial endorses the controversial idea of making things better.
