Dear Readers,

As Caltrans tries to figure out how to clear the massive slide from Highway 1 in Big Sur, one of the biggest problems is: Where will the coastal commission let them put all that dirt? Chris Counts reports.

The city says the owners of a home on Guadalupe Street won't stop renting it out on a short-term basis, and they're about to bring down the hammer. Mary Schley has the details.

A notorious break-in at Bottega Veneta may be on its way to being solved, and a lot of the loot has been recovered, according to police. Meanwhile, the Apple Store at Del Monte Center has been hit with yet another gang robbery -- part of a rash of similar crimes around the country and even the world. Mary Schley and Kelly Nix have those stories. 

Among the jobs she's lost after posting a gruesome photo of the president's head, comedian Kathy Griffin has also lost a upcoming gig at Sunset Center. The city has almost reached a settlement with PG&E over the shocking destruction of a home after a gas leak three years ago. Former mayor Jason Burnett has sold his house in town, and Connie Laub has sold the building where she was embroiled in a bitter dispute with Dametra restaurant. And my editorial says today's political leaders in Washington and Sacramento could learn a lot about taxes from a Democrat who occupied the White House 55 years ago.
