PG Police On Maximum Enforcement. For Blankets Saving Places for FOL

Last year they said you can save spots at your own risk.

Dawn on the day of the beach entertainment is the only time you can stake out a place. And someone has to stay with the blankets. I bet there will be some exceptions.

Last year dozens of blankets were laid out on the beach a week before the event. Police say that is not allowed this year.

Wharf Brawl Ends With Arrest

Monterey police said in a press release that when they arrived on the scene, “They were advised that a subject pulled a gun and pointed it at several people and pulled the trigger. The victims heard a click and the magazine from the firearm fell to the ground.”

The gunman was then tackled to the ground following the failed shooting. He was able to escape when a second person used a knife to threaten the victims.

Four Way Stop Coming To Pine & Congress

The Pine Avenue work has been discussed at P.G. traffic commission and city council meetings for more than five years.
But the four-way stop will be something that drivers will have to get used to.
“We are going to have to make sure that the public now knows there is a four-way stop at Congress,” Gho said.

Good luck with that. People don’t stop on Congress where stop signs have been for decades.

Among the crowd was Madalone’s wife of two years, Pam Dino.

“It is my first walkout and very emotional,” Dino said. “For her, it is 25 years serving here, really half her life, with these wonderful people, so it is emotional and bittersweet.”

Substainable Tourism Will Save Us!

tourists misery

Councilwoman Cynthia Garfield is advocating for the sustainable tourism effort to be included among city’s key goals for 2019, saying that it would benefit both the city and businesses to have visitors stay longer.

Garfield provided of an example of how to manage crowds along the shore by ensuring a measured flux of tourists.

“Some of the things we are exploring is paid parking along the coast,” she said. “The Coastal Commission doesn’t like paid parking but we are looking at it in an unobtrusive way.”

Trying to figure out what substainable tourism is. We already have all the human waste/agricultural runoff water for them. Next up will be mandatory house sharing, where residents must host visitors. Manage the crowds along the shores means fencing off and keeping humans out of reach of the shore.

Oh – and parking meters along Ocean View – another tax.

Say Goodbye To The Shoreline

In 30 years the beauty of Pacific Grove’s coastline will be GONE! What is it with these climate change experts? It’s always 30 years away from complete DOOM. Do they really believe that the sea is going to rise that much in 30 years? How much has is changed in the last 30 years? Here’s what the U.N. was saying 30 years ago. Has it happened?

A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.

OK, so if it’s not global warming it’s those darn squirrels!

The trail would be temporary in the sense that rising sea levels generated by global warming will within 30 years erode the bluffs down to and including Ocean View Boulevard. As the sea continues to encroach on the bluffs, trails and parking will need to be moved inland, a process engineers call “adaptive retreat.” Eventually Ocean View would need to be closed or moved further inland toward what is now the Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links, according to the study plan. A long-term plan calls for the boulevard to be closed completely and converted into a two-lane bike path.

With the sea eventually consuming existing parking, the study raised the possibility of creating an electric shuttle service to move people from inland parking to the trail.

Other causes of the erosion and loss of native vegetation along the bluffs include storm runoff, compaction by cars and people, and burrowing ground squirrels, according to the study plan.
