Don’t tell  me the robbers ran up the street to the police station? One of the suspects was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation

Riley Elvin, 24, and Jorge Cisneros, 22, were housed in
Monterey County Jail on felony charges of robbery, drug
possession, probation violation and other crimes.

A couple of guys went into the store acting suspiciously and attempted to steal some alcohol and products from the store,” Lakind said. “They were confronted by an employee, and they took off running and were arrested a few blocks away.”

What would have been shoplifting became a robbery charge when the men tangled with the employee who tried stop them.

S.T.Rs Keep On Losing

And lawyers keep on charging

In essence, the short-term rental supporters allege that the lottery randomly singled them out without providing a cause for why their licenses to operate short-term rentals were not renewed. The city counters that it was stated in writing when the property owners signed the license application that it was good for only 12 months and might not be renewed.

Case watchers agree that Goldwater wants to lose as soon as possible so they can then appeal the verdict to the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The case is more far-reaching than just Pacific Grove. If successfully appealed to the Ninth Circuit, then the outcome of that court’s decision, one way or the other, could have significant ramifications for cities’ ability to legislate short-term rentals up and down California.

However, the Ninth Circuit earlier this month upheld the city of Santa Monica’s ban on short-term rentals. That decision can now be cited in lower court cases such as the lawsuit against the city of Pacific Grove.

Coastal Commission Plan or Forced Demolition?

There goes my plan for Six Flags Over Asilomar.

Asilomar Gardens

But not all Pacific Grove residents are thrilled about the approval. Members of the Asilomar Dunes neighborhood came out in force for Friday’s commission meeting to protest portions of the coastal program they believe are draconian and infringe on their property rights.

Among the debated issues has to do with driveways. The just-approved program requires that development be capped at 15% coverage of dunes that houses sit on, including driveways. Asilomar residents argue that driveways should not be part of the 15% and instead be excluded.

Other contentious parts of the plan include height limits that homeowners say would require portions of their second stories to be removed, restrictions that would prevent them from rebuilding after natural disasters and the inability to replace damaged sections of houses.

New story line will be Chang and his lover Prince Seagull escaping the evil unsubstainable blogger and running off to hide in various STRs.

Coleman said the annual event should celebrate the history of Pacific Grove and hopes changes to the pageant and story will teach the community more about the cultural groups that contributed to the Monterey Peninsula and P.G.

The board president said the festival would have a stronger emphasis on the history of the area, including the Chinese fishing village that stood for 50 years on the shoreline where Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Station now resides.

Educating the community through Gerry Low-Sabado’s annual Walk of Remembrance is a good place to start and the Feast of Lanterns board has participated the last four years Coleman said.

Why So Few Monarchs?

Maybe the butterflies hate the tourists too. I certainly avoid places where they gather.

Butterfly Molesting

Roughly 30 people — sanctuary docents, volunteers and interested members of the public — gathered in the sanctuary Thursday morning to listen to Stuart Weiss, the chief scientist contracted by the city to develop long-term planning for the 2.5-acre site. Weiss described what goals he and the city want to accomplish to help monarchs, including dealing with tree species, microclimates and the plants monarchs rely on for nectar.

Right now the beer is made in San Jose under contract with another brewer. Tope, who runs Employnet, a staffing and recruiting company based in Monterey, has spent the better part of a year soaking in the suds business from every angle.

Tope said within the next five months, PGBC will be brewing and bottling the beer themselves in either Sand City or Marina.
