A preview of the November 10, 2017,
        edition of The Carmel Pine Cone

November 10 - 16, 2017

Dear Readers,

One of the town's long-running disputes was put to rest this week when Carmel Belle restaurant started table service. Turns out the controversy didn't end with a bang, but with a big white button. Mary Schley reports.

The new bridge is open at Pfieffer Creek, but the damages from the long closure of Highway 1 are still being counted, and one prominent hotel has even sued its insurance company. Kelly Nix has the story. Meanwhile, another well known Big Sur inn is planning to turn a historic building into a roadside cafe. Chris Counts has the details on that one.

With the passing of RJ Harper, an era ends at the Pebble Beach golf course. Dennis Taylor explains why he'll be missed so much.

Restaurateur David Fink has finally gotten the OK to build a condo on the roof of Cantinetta Luca. Congressman Jimmy Panetta explains why he thinks the U.S. should keep its "diversity visa" system. The monks at the New Camaldoli Hermitage have received a rather unusual donation to help them pay for road repairs. If you think you know what ails you, doctors at the CHOMP emergency room say there's a good chance you're wrong. And my editorial explains why the steelhead trout and red-legged frog might not be covered by the Commerce Clause.

As always, I invite you to send me any questions, comments or concerns about our newspaper, and to contact me if you need help making the most of it on your computer, smartphone or tablet.
