A preview of the June 9, 2017, edition
        of The Carmel Pine Cone

June 9 - 15, 2017

Dear Readers,

One of the city's most significant historic homes -- built by the founders of the Bach Festival -- was destroyed in a spontaneous-combustion fire last Thursday, along with a large number of important artifacts and mementoes. Mary Schley reports.

A homeowner on Guadalupe Street who has continued to rent-out their house on a short-term basis despite being repeatedly warned by the city they were breaking the law is about to face a serious lawsuit. Mary Schley has that story, too.

The only road that's open to the public to reach the central part of the Big Sur coast suddenly became a lot more adventurous this week when the Army started launching rockets and practicing war games. Chris Counts has that one.

Despite last-ditch opposition, the city council confirmed its decision to move the city's election day to November. An unusual car show has picked up a permit to stage an event on Dolores Street during Car Week. The Pebble Beach Company is getting ready to break ground on its much-needed affordable housing project. The woman at the center of the NSA leak scandal is a former resident of the Monterey Peninsula. We have a special section for you, "In Your Dreams," featuring some of the Carmel area's most distinctive homes. And my editorial says the big slide in Big Sur should be cleared as soon as possible, even if that means doing it exactly the way Mother Nature intended.
