Another smaller sign at Otter Point

Sally is just a picture now
Sally was a good ol girl.

Monday through Friday for more than 35 years in Pacific Grove, in what was formerly called the Sally Griffin Center. Then came Covid.

The P.G. planning commission on May 13 voted 4-3 to reject a petition by Valero owner Surya Raj Shrestha to sell hard alcohol at the business at 1140 Forest Avenue. Shrestha paid $1,140.50 to city hall to appeal the decision, which the city council was expected to consider Wednesday, but instead tabled it to July 7. “It is not fair for me not to have a full liquor license for my business,” Shrestha wrote in his appeal.

Pollacci appeared in a Salinas courtroom Friday via zoom at which time he was supposed to be arraigned on the petition.
