People who live near the Meals on Wheels center say it’s gotten so busy, their quality of life is being disrupted. Laguna Seca will reopen July 7 after getting major upgrades. The longtime principal of River School is ringing the dismissal bell on his career. A solo hiker in Big Sur was lucky that rescuers were nearby when he fell and injured himself Saturday. The Carmel planning commission is backing a proposal to offer wine tasting walking tours. Two CHS grads have been nominated to attend the nation’s military academies. The founder of Save the Whales and the owner of Galerie Amsterdam are two notable deaths. A Big Sur engineering firm has gotten the OK to move to a new site near the River Inn. Sunset Center wraps up its Terrace Hour concerts Friday. As the U.S. Women’s Open in Pebble Beach gets closer, Neal Hotelling continues his history of women’s golf in California.
